To My Blogger Friends
Hello my friends,
It has been just over a year since I began blogging. I backed into it really. One day when opening up Google I saw the word blog and clicked on it just to see what it was about and that was how I began my relationship with all of you. I have grown to love blogging, you all have expanded my world by making me part of your blogging lives.
During this past year we have shared good times and sad times, weddings, death of loved ones, the birth of new babies, purchase of new vehicles, all things that happen in our every day lives. Some of my friends have been very ill and now are feeling better some are still very ill. I prayed and continue to pray for all of you as you have for me.
In the beginning there was a small group of us ladies who came together, supported each other and taught each other how to post pictures, add a link or a signature to our post. We all were new at this and we had fun watching each other grow into our own. We became known as the Village, I do believe it was Terri who named us. Well now I am missing my village friends.......they still have their blogs but don't post as often. They are very loyal though and always comment and support those of us who are still here on a regular basis. I know we all have busy lives, other commitments and are involved in other activities but it doesn't keep me from missing those days of old as we struggled to master the art of blogging.....in fact I'm still not sure I have mastered it but I know I am still enjoying it very much. We all have made new friends and enjoy many other blogs as we found our niche into this arena. Some are drawn to nature, decorating, politics, religion and other interest.......and this is fine as I know the golden thread that has weaved us together is strong and will always keep us bonded in a special way. Somehow I feel we will always be friends and continue to keep in touch. I know I will as all of my blogger friends have become so very important to me. Some I feel very close too and I care for them as I do my family. I am happy to say we keep in touch through Facebook and e-mails, letters, cards even telephone calls.
I find myself checking to see what kind of weather you are having and if one has a doctor's appointment I say a prayer that the roads are good and you will be safe, as I wait to hear the results of your appointments. You have made me laugh so hard at times the tears have rolled down my cheeks and I have spilled my coffee as I read some of your expressions, when you were hurting or worried I found myself holding back tears and not always successful as I prayed all would work out for you. Oh yes you all have become very special to me.....
I want to thank each of you for making my blogging experience a positive one, I thank each of you for your comments, I love them and I love knowing you remember me in your prayers.....believe me I need them.
Blogging has opened a whole new world for me and it has been a wonderful experience. It is because of you that I have grown to love blogging, and I thank all of you for your kindness, honesty and friendship. I feel so blessed to have all of you in my life, my life has been so enriched because each of you has added to it.
God Bless each of you..........and many, many hugs :-)
