Hello everyone!

I hope you all have had a nice week. As I mentioned in my last post, this week has been kinda crazy for us. But we're all getting through it. Sad that it takes something like the death or minor tragedy of a friend or family member, to make us look at our day to day lives with more appreciation. I'm totally guilty of that. But thankfully, not in a "for granted" type of way. Every single day, I say a word of thanks for my friends and family and for my health. But sometimes, when things happen that make you remember that tomorrow is promised to NO just makes me a little more thankful and appreciative of what my life holds.

Having said all that, I'm so thankful for all of BLOG friends. I would love to be able to meet all of you IRL. But for now, my life is a little more complete because of those of you that I have been blessed with meeting. Hopefully the day will come for the rest of us to meet.

Alrighty, before I get even MORE sappy :-), I want to thank those of you who have checked up on me...because I haven't been to YOUR blogs in a while. Did I mention things have been CRAZY lately? I know, that's no excuse for not checking in on my friends. But right now, that's all I've got :-). I WILL get back to my normal reading fact, I NEED to. Because I really miss you guys.

And thank you too, Cheryl. I received the package on Wednesday.

OH...I almost forgot. Remember several posts back I told you about a fun 80's night that I had with my scrapping/crafting buddies? Well, I finally got the pictures back from that fun filled event. Wanna see??? they are: (can you figure out, where's Dawn? LOL)

We had so much fun! You know what's funny about this? I didn't even dress this way in the 80's/high school...LOL. There's talk now about doing a 70's or 50's night next time. But I'll have to see about that one :-).

Anyway, what have you guys got planned for the weekend? Betcha can't guess where I'll be?!?!? Yep...starting tonight, I'll be on the soccer fields. Gotta love it! :-)

Well, that's all I've got for now. But before I go, here's your Flower Fix.

Well, I'm glad your back!

I've been appreciating friends recently, too, but for different reasons, I suspect. Whatever brings it up, I think it is good for us to slow down .... no, pause .... and think about the blessings we have from time to time.

Life is too good to just plunge through without looking at what is given us. We really do need to slow down.

Welcome back, Dawn. :)

I know EXACTLY what you mean about the support of your blog buds.I closed down my blog I started in 2000,becuz it had alot of things in there that my job didn't need to know about me.Nothing REALLY bad.Just stuff you don't talk about around the water cooler.But having some of the same b-buds for several years has really been a blessing.I re-opened a fresh blog and left out alot of things that I had already worked through,like seperation issues etc..past stuff...the ol skeletons in the
geez,someones at the door now.
