When I first started my blog, I had no idea about the friends I would make. Who makes friends on the internet? Who tells them their real names? Or gives away addresses? Or phone numbers. There are so many crazy people out there!
I was shocked when I actually had a visitor. And when I got a comment from a stranger, I almost had a heart attack.
Little by little, I got to know people. Some were shy, and some were not. Little by little, I made bloggy friends.
That anyone would ever read my ramblings is always surprising.
As I blogged, I also found some fabulous blogs. I read them daily. I genuinely care about the bloggers. If they don't publish a post when I expect them to, I worry. If they are sick, I worry. If they are happy, I am thrilled. I may not know their real name but I care about them! I think of them as my friends.
We exchange emails. We call each other. We give each other a shoulder to lean on. We make each other laugh. Or cry. We are a part of each other's life.
My every day is so much better because they are a part of my life.
So my bloggy-best-friend Jodi gave me this award. I was so amazed.
Thank you my friend! You are my bestest bloggy friend!
Another award I got is from Betty. Her hubby has a very cool blog and I am truly honored. Thank you!
Thank you for visiting my blog, reading my silly stuff and ramblings. Thank you for commenting. I love, love, love your comments.
To be honest, awards scare me. I feel overwhelmed. My zodiac sign is Cancer (crab) so I tend to retreat in my shell. And I never know who to give them out to. Either folks don't want them or have already received the same award.
Please don't give me any awards anymore. Your visiting my blog and commenting are awards enough for me.
I know that there were rules that I had to follow but this is a really long post so I'll do that another time.
Know that if you are on my blog roll, I think of you as a friend and love your blog.
Consider yourself awarded with these awards. It is your call if you want to accept them or not.
Love you my bloggy friends!
