Blog Anniversary

June 28, 2006 was my first blog post.  Please go and read this to see the frame of mind I was in when writing it.  It was a time of loss of my friend, our little dog and the waiting while my mother was dying.  I have always been a writer, not a good one but I do write.  Journaling have been a part of my life for years and when I figured out I could do it here I was all for it.  I still write in my journals but there are just some things that I don't leave to the public (or family) to read and judge.  When I die I'm sure my girls will have a heyday reading them or they just might be very bored.  Writing helps me to grow, mentally and spiritually.  It is a way for me to think and express, to work out what is going on in my head.  Today I am celebrating four years of blogging, sharing my thoughts, feelings, joys, concerns, my life with my little corner of the world.  I have found new friends here on Jill of All Trades and I love it.  It is a form of pen pals I think and as I have said before I even have a real pen pal that I have written to since 1972 so I am not afraid of a long time committment.  Thank you everyone for supporting me here and hopefully you will continue.  To celebrate here I am going to have a giveaway.  Yup, it has been awhile since I have done it but I want to thank eveyone.  Like the last time it will be very simple, no real rules except:

1.  Leave a comment with a real email address for contact. 

The end date for the giveaway will July 1, 4 days to symbolize 4 years.....Pass this on please. 

Up for grabs is summer pamper stuff -

Coconut Lime lotion, shower gel, spray

Satin Hands for those beautiful hands

Oh, that was the saddest blog! It sure reminded me of what I went through watching my own mother deteriorate and pass in 2006. And, all the many dogs I've buried int he past. (The pink bathrobe really got to me.) I'm so glad you weathered that stormy time in your life. You still have your dad, and you have sweet Clayton, too. God bless! janiewilleen@att.net
