More Anniversary - Don't forget the Giveaway!

Well, I have apparantly hit the wall with words as Monday's post celebrating my 4 year blog anniversary showed.  DUH!  I just could not come up with funny or interesting things to put down in print and am mad at myself.  My first blog post, as I had mentioned before, was me dealing with the death of my dear friend Gail, the death of our sweet dog and the illness and eventual death of my mother.  I did not do a retrospect kind of look at where I have come in four years. 

I have to say that I did not handle all the death in my life and ended up having a little counseling to try and deal with it all.  Still have days of sadness but that is to be expected.  I really found me during all of this.  I found the love of painting which has so enriched my life right now.  I've been through the marriage of our first born, the weight issue - up and down, and during the four years I have grown more than anytime in my life. 

Life is good for me and I rejoice in where the road I have taken has placed me in life.  I am so thankful for my family, friends and my blog friends. 

Be sure to comment and leave contact info on Monday's post for the giveaway and please pass it on.

Wow! Four years? That's fantastic. I've only gone two so far. I hope I can keep it up. I'm sorry you've had to deal with so much sorrow. I'm glad you got some counseling. I believe in it.
