Oh the JOY of Blogging…

Each night I sit here on my comfy couch and I can’t hardly wait to open the laptop and read my favorite blogs and find new ones.

08bf5cf6ca7bbb35529d44ef13ec03d17783466b   I truly feel so glad some of the people I love in real life are on here and I have grown attached to people I have never met also. I have laughed out loud reading some blogs. I have cried often.

I have read of prayer needs and passed them on.  I asked you to Pay it Forward to Randi and Reva.  Every time I go there I see a bunch of my buddies have already commented and are keeping up with these special ladies and their lives.

I love reading about your lives~the good, the bad and especially the funny! I love pictures and I thank you for allowing me a MeMe’s prerogative to show off my precious grandbabies.

I am so glad to have a forum to document things that happen- my online journal to look back through. I think I’ll share a few of my favorite early posts from when I had two people reading – Valerie who got me started in this  and possibly my best friend Barbie – who has never started one herself , but reads me everyday. I’ll start with this one.

Hello...Oh the JOY of blogging INDEED...

I am a 57 year old who has reconnected with young friends of my grown children, connected with new friends, and lurk on others.

I enjoy reading your blog...the SMILE says it all.

Thanks for visiting my blog. I'm enjoying yours very much.

I hope Donny is doing better. My husband was diagnosed with coronary artery disease/microvascular syndrome at age 36 when our youngest was 6 mos. old. It's a scary thing, but through prayer and good medical intervention, he's doing great at age 41.
