Blogland is Amazing!!

Sometimes this world of blogging is just so spectacular and so mind-blowing that it just blows me away! Who would think that you could sit down in front of a screen with nothing more than a keyboard and reach out to people all over the world....and have them reach out to you, too....that you could form friendships and become part of someone's life when you've never actually met in person.

I don't think even in my wildest dreams I could have imagined how much fun it is to be a part of Blogland and to meet so many truly wonderful people. There's not a day that goes by when I don't meet someone new or discover a really special blog that touches me in some way.

Bloggers are a special kind of people because they seem to have hearts as big as the world. Such is the case with Shop Girl. She has been a good friend to me here in Blogland....and she recently sent me the most fantastic gift. When I opened it, read her note, and saw what she made it just brought tears to my eyes.



It was a bit difficult to get a good photo of this bracelet but I hope you can see what she has made....that little charm holds the picture I drew that was in Artful Blogging magazine!! On the back is the letter J. Isn't that the most special thing for her to do?!! I will treasure this always. Thank you sooooo much.

I hope each and every person who ventures into my blog knows how much I appreciate all of you. Your comments, your emails, your thoughts, advice and help are always things I'm thankful for and look forward to each day.

A huge hug and thanks to everyone....and a special one for Shop Girl!!

    I recently "met" Shop Girl and I am pretty darn sure it was through YOUR blog! She is such a neat lady that I had to add her to my blog roll.

  11. That was very thoughtful of her to send you your picture in a bracelet.

    I am finding blogland to be a wonderful place too. I tend to stay away from political blogs. Do you think I'd find the same caring there? I bet it's more with all the creative and sharing bloggers. Well, I like the "neighborhood" I've found myself in!

  27. Three cheers for this and Shop Girl, too! I know what you mean about blogland. I started my blog in December and since then have had daily contact with creative and talented people from all over the world. And everyday I discover someone new (like you) and someone discovers me. It's a joyful, supportive, creative, and special community and I'm so glad I fell into it!
