Happy New Year to all my family and friends. I simply cannot believe it has been over 4 years since my niece set up this blog and emailed me to start blogging. Then January 1, 2008, I finally got the courage to publish a post.
I never realized how much I would enjoy writing a blog. I have always loved to write my thoughts. The Christmas I was 9 years old I asked for a diary and I've written a journal to some extent ever since.
As I talk to people from day to day they say, "You should write a book." An older gentleman told me that for the second time a couple of days ago. Sigh...I'm busy. You're busy. Everyone is busy. Life is so demanding. I'm looking for ways to work smarter.
I do love having a blog. It's like a friend that is there waiting for me no matter how much time has passed or what has happened. I can write what I want, and say what I want, and post if I want. But if I choose to not say it "out loud" my blog is happy to save it in draft and not tell a soul. I like that about my blog! I try my best to tell you the good stuff!
At the start of this year I want to take this opportunity to tell you how much you mean to me. I appreciate the emails and comments and texts and my friends who tell me they read this blog but don't leave comments. Thank you for all your support and encouragement. I appreciate is deeply. As I stated before I know how busy you are and when you take time to reach back to me, I don't take that for granted. You (or should I say y'all) are the best!
I wish for you a new year that is filled with peace and love and overflowing joy.
So I along with all of you have taken that first step into the new year. Take a deep breath and keep moving forward. Hold your head high and smile.
