I keep seeing this on my Technorati page and I don't remember doing this! If I had to guess, I think Dawn tagged me, but I'm not certain. I'm supposed to copy my screen as it is right at this moment and post it online. I'm already on the list, so I'm not going to post that, but I missed out on the fun part! My desktop changes from week to week, and this week, my favorite person, John, my adopted father/grandfather I visit at the nursing home. His face is amongst my favorite faces. I love him and what's even better--he loves me back!
Before I get going with the home school day, I wanted to share this from Eileen, my friend at A Life Of Triggers:
Eileen and I have a few things in common, not the least of which being we have lost our beautiful sisters far too early. Eileen is a social worker, so was Jamee. I think reading her posts reminds me of the stories Jamee would tell in her early years with the DFS...the frustrations, the victories. It takes a very strong woman to do what Jamee did, and I believe Eileen is strong enough. She passed this onto all her friends, and I'm going to do the same, this is for all of you, my friends, and this is what it means:
- "They color my life with the beautiful hues of friendship. Although we come from different backgrounds and cultures we share the same spirit of friendship."
Over the months since I started my first blog, it's evolved greatly. It started because I wanted to make friends with other sewing enthusiasts and thrist store lovers like myself. And I quickly surprised myself when I found I was drawn into the lives behind the words more so than the crafting. From that realization, I've learned that I can have relationships that reach from one end of the world to the other and they're as real as the friends I visit with each day in person. I've met a few of you in person and I have hopes of meeting even more.
