A big shout-out thank you to Cindy at http://figslavendercheese.blogspot.com/ for throwing down the gauntlet last October, and encouraging me to start my own blog. At first I didn't know what to do, but I soon reclaimed my composure, and voila, there it was: my little blog standing up straight in the big blog world.
I started the blog in October 2008. I learned alot over the past year. I've met many people, whom I consider my friends. This blog has been my salvation in times of happiness, and in grief. And you were all there, always willing to give a smile, a funny comment and encouragement, when you may or may not have known what exactly was in the pot of soup.
I thank you my friends: each and every one of you. I look forward to turning on the computer and seeing what you are doing and saying in your world. There's a connection that happens when writing. The only other way I can compare is sharing some time together over a cup of favorite beverages. Actually that would be much better! The blog world brings us together. I am grateful to Cindy who gave a gentle push. And thanks to all of you, my blogger friends. My appreciation is unending.
