many things. Review-
ing my early posts on both
blogs, I wish that I

of the way things started out
to compare with the

way things look today.
Visual changes obscure
just how 'plain' both blogs

started out ... and my
lack of knowledge concerning
this 'virtual' world.

I am grateful to
each & every one of you
who assisted me

It sure is hard to imagine when you first started out Virginia. You are en entirely different site now. I can hardly believe it. What you have done in such a year is truly amazing. I celebrate with you sweetie....you are a dynamo! And....thank you so much for the many sweet gestures and awards you have sent my way over these 11 1/2 months....I so appreciate your thoughtfulness and all your help too. Hugs, Joy

How exciting to be reaching your blogging anniversary. It has been fun to follow your journey.

I love your thought today. I am really seeing now how in any situation I can make choices that will make it better or choices that will make it worse.

My blogavesary is in 9 days. It will be one year for me too. My circle of friends has grown and the topics I blog about are a little different --- but not much else has changed. Evolution for me is coming much more slowly. :)

Grandy said...

Happy Friday Storyteller! I'll be looking forward to your blogversary! ;)
