" 1 Year "

I stayed home one more day from work, I think I over did it yesterday, but I thought I was resting enough in between cleaning, I never realized how much being dehydrated can take it's tool on a person, but now I do! Amanda and Chris went to the state fair this evening and I'm kind of worrying about them already, but I asked God to protect them and to have his angels put their wings around them and I know he heard me cause I got the chills when I was asking. God is just so awesome the love he has for all of us and all the friends I have met through blogging, it's been a year this month that I started doing this, and I remember when Joni was telling me about it and she e~mailed me her blog address and I'd stop by and read her stuff, and she asked, "When are you going to get a blog going?" I ponder the thought for a while and thought, "O, why not" at first I didn't know how to do this, I kind of wanted a journal kind of thing but I didn't know how to get that going so I thought, "I'm just gonna write as if I'm having a conversation" I still remember the first response I got, other then from Joni, and the excitement I felt, it was from Kim, then Phyllis starting responding and I got all happy over it, and do you know I still look forward to response's and the encouragement I get, God has allowed all of you to pass my way for a reason and when one of us is down we are all here to pick each other up whether it's by prayer, or just dropping a little " I'm thinking about you today", it all means something to our hearts to know others care! So Thank you Joni for introducing the blog world to me, I have some neat friends and I wish all of us lived closer cause I know the fellowship we'd all have in person would be awesome, and one day I will meet all of you, maybe not in this lifetime, but the lifetime we'll have with God, and I can introduce all of you to my Dad, and my baby brother, and what a day of rejoicing that will be!!!!!!!!!!!!

I'm sorry to hear you're still under the weather...no fun! Hopefully the extra day off did you some good...and I am so thankful you started a blog...I invited several friends to create one because I thought it was an excellent way to stay abreast of the happenings in each others lives in between actual visits, but some went to Facebook and others just prefer email if anything at all...so I treasure your posts...it keeps us better connected. Happy one year anniversary...time flies doesn't it?

well feel better soon!
lots of love ~

I love your blog notes Annette and I'm glad you started writing them so we all could get to know you and your family. We don't always know why God puts people in our lives but sometimes we get a little idea why and get to see the puzzle pieces fall in place. The words you write touch my heart so often and I'm thankful I've met you.

Congratulations on your 1 year blogging anniversary!
