I Am So Grateful for You

Lately I haven’t had the time to catch up with all of you, my faithful readers and fellow bloggers. With the passing of my friend last Friday, I feel like I’ve been pulled through a knot-hole backwards. With that said, please know that I really value your friendships even though, in most cases, we’ve never met face-to-face.

When I started this blog, I had no idea that it would take me to places within and without. As the old saying goes “if you don’t go within, you go without.” Following your blog posts has allowed me to look within myself and that makes me a better contributor and a better person. You have made me a better photographer, too, but I still have a long way to go with that 🙂 I’ll keep going with it because I love it.

If you’re anything like me, you really enjoy blogging. It opens up new worlds for us that we might have never known. The friends I’ve made in the blogosphere, from Hawaii to Turkey to Holland, the UK and South Africa, as well as here in the U.S. have opened my eyes and affirmed that we are all linked together. You are all such good people with loving hearts. I cheer for you when I read that cool things happen and I empathize with you about the not-so-good stuff. And I know, really know that you feel the same for me. So thank you from the bottom of my heart. You’re the best! Namaste’

My Christmas Card to You

First, a note of heartfelt thanks to all of you who sent me love and compassion when Foxy passed.  We still miss her and yet know we absolutely did the right thing.

Second, please allow me to wish all of you the most wonderful, magical Christmas and a prosperous New Year.  May both be filled to the brim with love, peace and unbounded joy.  Know that we are all One.  Namaste’

P.S. – I’ll be back to the blogosphere next year 🙂

Meet My Mom – 90 Years Young

I know, I know! It’s been a while since I’ve been to the blogosphere, but life and my business have kept me out of trouble 🙂 

Tomorrow is Mother’s Day and I want to wish all the Moms out there a blessed and joyous day.  Being a mom is really hard work and who says it stops when the young-uns leave the nest?  And who says there should only be one day a year to honor Mom?  

Anyway, I’ll be spending tomorrow with this lovely lady and my hubby.  Mom doesn’t really like to have her picture taken, so I snapped this with my phone last weekend.  I think she looks pretty good for being 90.  Maybe I’ll look this good when I’m her age.  One can hope, right? 

Wish I could have my kids and grandkids here, too.  But I feel loved no matter where everyone is geographically. Namaste’

For Two Reasons

It seemed appropriate to post this picture today.  I took it while at a friend’s house.  Yes, Linda, you’ll recognize it from your coffee table.

This is also for a blogger friend of mine (and you know who you are).  We both have been feeling the pinch of the holiday stress, so here’s to us.  It also reflects how I feel about WordPress right now.  I used to get emails when someone whose blog I am following puts up a new post.  Not any more.  What happened?  Has anybody else out there in the blogosphere experienced this?

I’m trying to remain calm about it.  Namaste’
