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.
