Hi again everyone. I owe the idea for this post to my lovely friend Glenda over at "As Life Happens" as she was talking about her blogging friends from all parts of the world.
I have been blogging for almost nine months now, which, really, in the scheme of things, isn't very long at all, but I honestly feel as if I have known you all for so much longer! I know when you are happy and I know when you are sad. I know when exciting things happen in your lives, things that are are rightly proud of, and I know when you are struggling with what life is throwing at you at the moment. I know the precious wonder of new life appearing in your world, and I know when grief arrives at the loss of a loved one.
So, for me, in these past nine months, the world really has become a smaller place, as I read about my friends in Australia, all parts of the great country of America, France, Germany, Italy, Brazil, Spain, Ireland, Malaysia, India and Japan. (Not forgetting my blogging friends in my home country of Great Britain of course!). (If I have left YOUR country out as you are reading this post, please forgive me!).
You shared in my daughter's wedding with me, and you were so generous in your comments when I bored you all silly with the wedding photographs! Quite often, I picture my garden filled with all my bloggy friends, and, of course, the sun would be shining on us all as we sipped our champagne, or whatever beverage is your favourite! Do you know, I honestly feel that we would all get on like a house on fire. I don't think there would be any awkward pauses, just a day filled with laughter and, yes, LOVE.
Please know that you have all brought so much into my life. Sometimes I find it difficult to find words that I hope will entertain you, so I'll have a little break for a few days, but, hey, I don't want to give you too much of a good thing, do I?! Hee Hee!!
