Ohmygosh ... it's my 401st post here today!

Make Time for Small Reflections
I didn't realize it until after I'd created & published today
so read on (or scroll down) for more ...

It's the 2nd Monday of the month and that means it's ...
'Retired Ladies Lunch'
... so (since time is limited for posting & visiting today), I've decided to pass on Fun Monday. I do plan to post about Veteran's Day tomorrow on both blogs however ... so perhaps that would count belatedly since the hostess, Janis, writes that the task is 'to salute our Veterans and show our appreciation ... including a patriotic photo.

I've managed to get the unread posts in Google Reader down to 450 and am hoping to focus on catching up again. In addition, there are many Peace Posts I've not yet had the opportunity to visit ... and I'd like to make that a priority too.

I do have this lovely award
... from Mary of Mary's Writing Nook that I'd like to share with all my 'bloggy friends' ... and if you missed them over the weekend there are links to awards I've received & shared in Sunday's Unconscious Mutterings.
Milestone Revision & Addendum
Until I'd published this post earlier (with some Blogthing Fun that I've deleted & will share another day as time permits), I didn't realize that I missed the 'milestone' of my 400th post yesterday ... so this is my 401st post at Small Reflections & I've decided something special is in order.

That said (for the reasons mentioned above) ... time is limited today and I've yet to create & share a Monday Motivator post at Sacred Ruminations. It will be my 271st post there ... for a total of 671 posts overall (plus 10 more at Blog Rolls & Bling) ... so perhaps (since I celebrated my 1st Blogoversaries at Small Reflections and at Sacred Ruminations recently), waiting for the next milestone makes more sense?

Yup ... methinks that's what I'll do ... but in the meantime this is for YOU when you leave me a comment today. Whether you're an old friend or a new one ... I'm happy you dropped by to help me celebrate. If you click on the image to save it to your computer then upload it to Photobucket, you'll get the HTML code to make it 'animated' on YOUR blog too ;--)

Thought for Today
"If instead of a gem, or even a flower, we should cast the gift of a loving thought into the heart of a friend, that would be giving as the angels give." George MacDonald

What a lovely post. I remember that last year I made a button for you to give out at Christmas and now this year you have surpassed me since you are able to make animations. Way to go, my friend!

Thank you for the button and congratulations on 401 posts.
