I found myself chuckling at Christine's postings at I'm Not Old, I'm Vintage, (she's a hoot), touched by Jeff's affection for his adorable little girls at The Path Called Life, to Kim at Life at Golden Pines, who has a heart of gold when it comes to taking in and adopting Golden Retrievers. Then there is a new one I stumbled on, Happily Ever After, where Stephanie, a young christian mother, is raising her young family following the Lord. And how could I get through the day without my Daily Dose of Jack? I found myself hanging on every thread during the tramatic illness and eventual death of Digby the Pon at Wilf and Digby discovers France and actually cried at his passing. I could go on and on. The comments on each of these blogs showed actual interest and caring for one another. Amazing!
My sister kept encouraging me to participate but being somewhat shy at trying new things, especially anything to do with technology, I hesitated. Who would want to read anything I'd have to say? And the biggie question, who would be intersted in MY life??? Ninny continued to prod me and eventually I relented to giving it a try. She spent one weekend teaching me the ropes and I dove in. I've been at this for over a month now and it has been a blessing in my life to have these new friendships and I want to thank everyone who has left comments. It has encouraged me, to say the least, to keep sharing my life and having the opportunity to peek into yours. I still have some tweeks to work out but eventually I hope to have it all together. Also, I have realized that I must be a true blogger because I carry my camera with me everywhere I go. My husband has made the comment that I must be addicted since I seem to be on the computer most of my free time. (Which isn't all that much.) Could he be just a tad bit jealous? No, I don't think so. He's never blogged so he doesn't understand. I didn't say it out loud but was thinking, "Yes, dear hubby, there is more to life besides football!"
Have a rosy day.
