Two Years Ago!

Two years a go today I stepped out into blogland, not really sure what to expect. I carefully put my first post out there and wondered if anyone in this big wide world would read it.
Well, thanks to my first wonderful loyal friends and supporters(read the comments) I didn't get the old goose egg on that first post.


Miss Em when I started my blog. This was my first header picture.


552 posts later I'm still plucking along and love being here. I love sharing in your joys and praying for you during your tough times. When I need some thing, whether it's prayers, or advice about Em or just a pep talk or pick me up, the first people I think about are my "bloggy friends".

I honestly don't know what I'd do without each and every one of you. My family has gotten bigger with you all in my life. I wish I could meet you all and just see you face to face and squeeze your Sweet Dumplings who I have also fallen in love with.

I honestly didn't expect this to happen. I mean think about it. How can you form a friendship with a person or persons you've never met? Some of you I may never meet but that bond is there. Must be a God thing.
Whatever it is I love it, and I'm so honored to be a part of this extra special community that without a doubt are some of the the best people in the world.

Miss Em today, two years later, two year bigger. Clapping because she put her hat on!(Her Minnie Mouse Princess hat)

I'm so glad to have "met" you in the blogosphere too! You brighten my day. Yes, the connection online seems so unlikely, but is real. Thanks for being more than just a blog buddy, but a true friend.

I couldn't agree more! I love the Ds blogging community and love it when we actually meet in person.

So glad her surgery went well, it's always such a relief when they want to play afterwards!

I just went back to your first post to read it and also to read the comments. I was surprised to see a comment left by me. It is definately possible to feel like you know and love someone even though you have never met. You have been there for me 100% and I will forever be grateful. I do not now what I would have done for the past 2 1/2 years without my blog friends. They have carried me and been my life preserver in so many ways. Thank you for your friendship.
