Almost there...and ramblings

It's hard to believe, but I have completed almost 100 posts. This blog has been the best thing I have done for myself in a very long time. It has helped me though some difficult times in my life over the past few months. It has been an outlet for my love of writing and has inspired me...along with many friends to do things I would not have normally done. So, in order to pay back what I have received....I will be doing a "Give-Away" in the next few days. I am gathering items and will post about it when I have it all together....well when I have all the items together...I doubt if "I" will ever have it altogether!

I have started to follow a lot of blogs. It is very inspiring to see what other women are doing out in the world and the best part is, they are from all over the world! That is the part I like about the internet the best...it allows us to communicate with people from all walks of life...similar interests...different interests, but similar philosophies and with people you have nothing in common with at all, but just like each other. I remember when I first got on the internet, I was afraid to go anywhere for fear of getting a virus in my computer....I no long have that problem. I am still careful where I go, but I would now be lost without the internet. I do most of my shopping on line..some of my banking and bill pay..how easy is that.

Some days it feels like...life sucks and some things are forever lost...and then you have a birthday and a new baby comes along and life just couldn't be better. My new little girl has given me a new perspective about life and what I want to do with the rest of mine. So thank you Serenity Rose for giving me a new outlook. I feel rejuvenated and ready to take on a lot more than I have been lately. John's surgery and his almost dying left me very depressed and tired....I haven't wanted to do anything. For the past few days, I have felt a great sense of hope and I am ready to tackle a lot of "stuff" that I have been putting off. Things are looking UP!

Thanks for listening and everyone have a great day...will be posting about the give-away soon

Anett,
What a beautifully written post! Made me shiver. I agree with your view of blogging.....what a great outlet it has been for me, too. It literally saved my sanity after the passing of my dad. And your blog post isn't the only beautifully written piece you did this week....the card you sent me also made me shiver and smile at the same time when I read your note. Did you know that "Hole in the Barn Door" is my favorite quilt block? Thank you soooo much. I am so thankful for the internet because if it didn't exist, we wouldn't have met!!!

Anett, I love your blog and your beautiful new granddaughter! I had to laugh after I read your post - you sounded so much like me - that I had to check myself to make sure I did not write it. LOL

Keep on expressing yourself and making friends because I think it is friends that move our world!
Hugs
