To the long-lost friend who complimented me today regarding my posts, THANK YOU! You have no idea but your words meant so much to me! I have always FELT I could write… My mother encouraged me to start recording my thoughts before she passed. The sister and the hubby picked up her mantle and urged me to put my words to paper. I suppose you could say I have always questioned my talent and word smithing abilities. This pat on the back today felt WONDERFUL! A few others have stated how they appreciated a post here or there or “why haven’t you monetized your blog yet?” The answer to this question…when I figure out how to do so, I will! To know that my idle thoughts, opinions and precious words resounded with another soul left me feeling as though I could FLY!
