Joanna Young at Confident Writing is sponsoring a group writing project ending Christmas Eve called Simply the Best.  The goal is for each blogger to scour their posts over the past year and identify the one post that they believe is their best writing of the year.  Then, write a post that links to that best post and completes the sentence “This post is simply the best because…” in 30 words or less.

This is not as easy as it sounds.

For this challenge I have selected my post “My Mother’s Gift,” which was my Mother’s Day post this year. Have you read it yet?

This post is simply the best because I was able to be candid about my family, its an unusual and interesting story, and I was able to touch just the right emotional notes.
