My husband had just been diagnosed with lymphoma. I had started a blog on Windows Live Spaces shortly before that. I was overwhelmed and gave that blog up only to start it up again shortly after. I missed my blogging family.
There was Ariana, my very first blogging friend who was a teacher in Chicago at that time. I still know how to find her now as she is on Facebook and she comes to visit me once in awhile. And then next there was Carole in Tennessee, Carol in Michigan, Joe in Montana, Nicky in Scotland, Nita in England, Kerrie in Australia, Patsy in West Virginia, Nancy in Missouri, Stephen in Illinois, Stephen in Michigan, Shelly in Michigan, Sheila, Pen and Arlene in England and Paul in Boston who calls me his big sister and the list goes on and on. I can’t name everyone so I won’t even try, Just know that my Windows Live Spaces friends were and still are special friends to me. I even had the privilege of meeting a couple of them in person and chats on the telephone and on messenger with many of them. I cried when 3 of my blogging friends died.
Over 2 years ago Live Spaces kicked us out and moved our blogs over to Wordpress. That is when I started blogging on Blogger. And several of my old blogging friends started blogging here too. And I made a whole new list of blogging friends. My blogging family was getting larger. They care what happens to me and they show it.
I have made so many new friends here on Blogger. Among them is one special lady named Mildred who thought enough of me after I was in the hospital last month to send me a lovely gift.
It was lost in the mail for a few weeks but I finally received it yesterday afternoon. Thank you Mildred!!
I found a lovely young lady in California here on my new blogspot. Her name is Janice and she is battling cancer. I have adopted her as a daughter.
And here again in Blogger, the list goes on and on. I can’t name all of you but you are all special to me. You lift me up each day with your posts and comments.
Stay safe and be happy!!
