Tag Archives: Thank you



It is better to give than to receive. Isn’t that what we all are taught at an early age? Of course it takes years – decades for some – to actually get this.

When you give, you are also a receiver. That one ‘Thank You’ or ‘This made my day’ response brings a smile to my face that exceeds my need for a costly gift. ‘Thank You’ makes my heart happy and my insides warm. It’s the best gift I will ever receive!

So…my gift this year to all my readers and followers who, this year, have read my essays – good and bad – followed me on Twitter, and liked and commented on my Facebook page, is “Thank You”. I still get that high from my comments and likes and hope to never lose that feeling. You are the ones who give me the encouragement to continue in this journey of writing my lost chapters of ‘What Line’ and my soon-to-be Alaska book. It’s been slow going but I haven’t given up.

I also want to thank all my fellow blogging buddies for allowing me to read and comment on your blogs and for putting out great content to keep me entertained throughout my day. I’ve laughed, I’ve cried, and I’ve been bewildered right along side you.

And a special “thanks” to my good friend Herbie who found enough glitter rocket bulbs for the ones missing from my ceramic tree! (50) I had just about given up.



Hoping your holidays are joyful and bright!


Who? Me? Seriously? Surely You’re Kidding!

Who? Me? Seriously? Surely You’re Kidding!

Well it looks like I’ve been nominated! Thanks Jennifer of Chopping Potatoes. I hope I don’t let you down and I am as deserving of ‘The Most Wonderful Team Member Readership Award’  (Did I get all the words in there in all the right places?)  as you think I am.

Now I have to nominate a few bloggers in return and that won’t be too hard. I read a lot of blogs, so my only problem will be to keep my list to the minimum quantity!  The blogs I read are of a variety. They range from self- publishing and social media to life in general and the trials and tribulations of raising children. (I don’t know why that last one except they make me laugh! My youngest is almost 21 – augggh! – and its too late to begin over with him, so if he hasn’t gotten it yet he never will!)

These are the blogs that I follow most consistently, learn from, laugh with, cry with and share with my friends. I only wish there was room to name you all!

My choices of these very deserving people by blog name for the ‘The Most Wonderful Team Member Readership Award’  are as follows:

1950 Memories of Suburban Adventure  Delightfully true stories of her past – I can   relate – funny..funny..funny
athingirldotcom Life goes on and she goes with it….
bongodogblog It’s a dog’s life…through the eyes of a pet.
A Hundred Years Ago Here’s how life went a hundred   years ago to the day…..
mishaburnett Author, social media,   self-publishing. Good advice for all.
Okayest Mom How to make it through the day   with three very young children and still stay sane!
Icecreammama Have a bowl of ice cream and it   will all be worth it! Life with three boys can be rough you know.
crismcmullen How to self-publish, promote, and   deal with social media.

I hope I followed all the rules and you enjoy reading some of the blogs I follow every day!
