I really did lose February along the way. Not sure how, but I only remember it having maybe 7 days! Is that a sign of getting older? I did turn older this year...55! Thinking of my age started Laura and I thinking about how old her sisters and nieces and nephews will be in correlating with our ages. She'll be 16 this year, so sisters will be 36, 34, 26, 24. Nieces and nephews, well that's a long list. She mostly used Little B's age. When Laura is 20, Little B will be 5 and I will be 59, sisters will be 40, 38, 30, 28. I made her stop thinking this out loud very soon after this! It was giving me headache!
What do you have going on this month? I have several reading projects, as in finishing up 4 books, writing reviews on Goodreads, Amazon and on my book blog. No, it isn't up yet, but God willing and the creek don't rise (don't you just love sayings like that?), it will be very soon. Speaking of reading, I have a question for you. What do you do when you simple cannot read a book? I am trying to read this book and I am finding I would rather poke my eye with a stick than finish the book! I cannot get past chapter 3. The book is by an author I have read before, just a different series. I have put the book away for several days at a time, but that has not helped. If any of you have any tips/hints, please let me know.
I have realized of late how many people, I'm talking bloggers, that have come into my life. Let's face it, most of us will never have the opportunity of meeting fellow bloggers. To me, that is okay. I look at blogging as writing a letter. You tell a bit about what is happening for you, ask questions, and sometimes, if you are lucky, you find out that both of you have things in common. Sometimes these are opinions, crafts, your reading genre (love the word genre!), health issues. I have met so many people that have a place in my heart. I get excited when they receive good news, I cry with them when the world throws them into a tail-spin. I have found out about far away places and some very near home. Blogging reminds me of having a phone conversation with the world all at once!
I would like to leave you with this quote from Flavia Weedn. I am not sure which of her books it is in, possibly Flavia and the Dreammaker. I am sure you have heard it, or a variation, before. It is how I feel about all of you in blogland.
“Some people come into our lives and quickly go. Some people move our souls to dance. They awaken us to a new understanding with the passing whisper of their wisdom. Some people make the sky more beautiful to gaze upon. They stay in our lives for awhile, leave footprints on our hearts, and we are never, ever the same.”
― Flavia Weedn
Until next time, dear friends, stay warm and safe. Remember you are special and are loved. Smile at one stranger a day, as it may make all the difference to them.
With hugs and much love,
