I have to say, I feel like I owe youâ€”Internetsâ€”one heaping helping of gratitude. You have, again and again made me take my writing seriously. Thank you for all of your commentsâ€¦(Do you know how much I love them? A TON! ~ On that note, sorry about the funky commenting problems. Just hit â€œsubmit commentâ€ ONE TIME, and it goes through, even if it tells you it doesnâ€™t. Still donâ€™t know whyâ€”though Iâ€™m trying to figure it out.) Thank you for all your emails, your encouragement and companionship from the very depths of my heart.
I started this blog two years ago this month, and Iâ€™ve benefited from the community Iâ€™ve found through it immeasurably. I laughed aloud when I went to look back at my first posts. See this one? Some things have come full circle, non? ( I never went that summer. Something about having a six month old prevented me. I think Iâ€™d delusionally signed up to CAMP with him and DH for the five days, in a two person backpacking tent, in a campground full of middle-age, new-age types who were seeking an â€˜experienceâ€™ while there. We didnâ€™t make it past night one.)
Anyhow, if I were a dog Iâ€™d be thwacking my tail into something rather hard. Since Iâ€™m not, I canâ€™t stop grinning. Spent the day picking wild strawberries with Bean, wandering newly mown paths through our meadows, and yesterday, happily reunited, the three of us took a four hour nap in the sun. Life is good, good, good.
