Happy Birthday Chick, Blog Anniversary, and Monitor blues
The Chick is officially 5 today but yesterday she was still only 4 (she told us this with a very serious expression on her face). Happy Birthday Miz Alexis!!!
I feel like I'm flying blind here due to the weird view this monitor is providing me, it looks like I'm losing some of the colors or some such thing cause everything has this greenish cast. It started going wonky after the electricity was off a little over a week ago. Anyway, I ordered a new one this morning so if I can just hang on for however long the free standard shipping takes,,,
I started blogging 5 years ago today, can you believe that? I'm still amazed that folks take the time out of their busy days to come by and read my thoughts and leave their comments. I've made so many good friends through blogging too and have been so blessed to have them share all the happiness and sorrows that they're having in their lives.
Special K started it all by starting her own blog back in 2003. I'd kept a journal off and on since I was a kid and it looked like fun so I signed on and became a blogger myself. Many of our blog buds got busy doing other things with their lives and have stopped blogging for one reason or another but a few are still coming by and have come to feel like part of my family. Leslie and her husband Carl, Marylou, Phyllis, Kim, Miz Sally, and John, have laughed with me, cried with me, prayed with me, grieved with me, and have even gotten pissed off with me over these many years. And if you'll look at my list of blog links over to the right there, you'll see that my family just keeps on growing because each and every one of those links leads to a mighty fine lady or gent. Aren't I lucky?
Friendship is like the breeze,
You can't hold it,
Or know when it's coming,
But you can always feel it,
And you'll always know it's there,
It may come and then go,
But you can know it'll always be back.
