New Year Message

Nice one, Google! This gives me the opportunity to wish my blogging friends a Happy New Year and to thank you for supporting my blog.

The year has been an uncertain one for me, Arthur Itis came uninvited and decided to stay which as you can imagine presented umpteen difficulties. There was a family problem that was difficult to deal with and my Guy chose this year to develop Diabetes 2 whilst suffering depression over the problem child. Fortunately things have settled to a bearable level and we're able to laugh again.

Throughout it all there was blogging to do. People who don't blog will never know the great satisfaction it produces, will never experience the pleasure of making friends all over the world, learning about their countries, their families, feeling their sadness, laughing at their jokes, even sharing their weather. I am so pleased to have met such a lovely bunch of people. Bless you all.

Ooops! I'm so sorry to have missed this post, dear lady!

For some reason, it didn't show up on my google reader.

Anyway....HAPPY NEW YEAR, VALERIE!!

And this was so spot on...

"People who don't blog will never know the great satisfaction it produces, will never experience the pleasure of making friends all over the world, learning about their countries, their families, feeling their sadness, laughing at their jokes, even sharing their weather."

I say the same thing to people I work with who don't understand blogging. In fact, when I first read about blogging, I said to myself, "That sounds so stupid!" HA! Now, looks who blogging - ME!

What a blessing it's been meeting you through this medium. You make this world a much brighter place!

I look forward to sharing 2011 with you.

Cheers!
