I Heart Erma Bombeck
"It goes back to the first time I saw authoress Faith Baldwin in a full-page magazine ad admonishing, 'It's a shame more women don't take up writing.' I said aloud, 'Ain't it the truth, Faith.' She looked directly at me and said, 'If you're a woman who wants to get more out of life, don't bury your talents under a mountain of dishes. Writing will provide a wonderful means of emotional release and self-expression...You don't have to go to an office...Even though you are tied down to your home, you can still experience fulfillment.'" ~Erma Bombeck
Ah, Erma. Your words are like a great, big hug. Why has it taken me this long to read you?
