October Perfect Post Awards

I am awarding an October Perfect Post to the ladies at the Green Phonebooth for this brief profile of Eleanor Roosevelt. It's a timely reminder that a first lady can be far, far more than a human rack for designer clothes, a social event hostess, or one who bakes cookies and fades into the background so as not to get in the way.

Few first ladies have had such an impact on Americans as Eleanor Roosevelt. And, as we stand ready to elect our next president, perhaps we should contemplate on which "other half" may be the best example for our nation as well.

"Perfect Post is
a post that made you cry, touched your heart, had you laughing out loud or made you believe in magic again. Whatever the word perfect means to you," according to the award authors, MommaK at Petroville and Lindsay at Suburban Turmoil.

I couldn't agree more! I deeply respect Eleanor Roosevelt - a partial reason why I named my daughter Eleanor :) Thanks for posting this.

Thank you so much for choosing this post! Eleanor Roosevelt is definitely a wonderful model for the next first lady.
