A Heartfelt Thank You

Just a short post to thank all of you who follow my blog. I have now reached 1000 followers and am thrilled.

I know it may sound clichéd, but it really is not so much the number of readers that I have, it is the interactions that I have with some of you that makes it so special.

I do love a bit of banter and I get plenty of that, I love to laugh, some of you have me in stitches, you are so funny. I love to learn things, many of you have taught me things, whether it be about blogging, photography or taking part in NaNoWriMo! I enjoy a good story or poem, which I get from you. To put it in a nutshell, between you, I get a good laugh, shed a few tears, become outraged, stretch my brain cells (taking part in some of your challenges), and am inspired by the challenges so many of you have overcome.

The most important thing of all that you have given me, though, is your time; time to read my ramblings, time to comment on something, time to explain something to me, time for encouragement. This I truly appreciate, especially as it is in such short supply.

So, I just want to say again.

THANK YOU! 🙂

 

 

 

Episode 310: Happy Birthday Beauty!

Was it really 12 years ago

I first held you in my arms?

Your face all scrunched and wrinkled

And little skinny legs and arms!

I had waited so long to have you

And I never thought I’d see

That this beautiful, perfect baby

Would actually belong to me

To start with things were tricky

As it was just the two of us

But we muddled through it

With the minimum of fuss

You have grown so very quickly

And are now nearly a teen

You are clever, bright and funny

And look like a Beauty Queen

We have come so far together

I’m so proud of my little girl

So Happy Birthday darling

You really rock my world!
