A Lot Of Words and A Lot Of Blessings

After baking a pumpkin pie, making a sour cream pound cake that I forgot to
put sour cream in and immediately just dumped it back in bowl and remixed.
Then chopped celery and onion for dressing, breakfast, cleaned kitchen
turned computer on this early morning
and on the screen
that I had written
16,9015 pages
1330 posts

That is a lot of words and writing in 5 years.
Especially since this one who is now the matriarch of her family
one on one
does not really say all that much.

A new path opened for me
when I began to write on line.
So many new friends
and my son made the comment recently
that I had quite an international following :)

The computer, camera, Callie, building a cottage in the woods
all became a reality after the age 73.
If someone had predicted this for me
years ago
I would have said "no way".
So many of us do not know what surprises the future holds.

I am so thankful for my life at this time,
family, children, grandchildren and all the
special people who write me,
 to think I have never met any of you in person
and you are a big part of my world at this time.
What would I do without you...

So pleased my granddaughter arrived safely in New York from Thailand.
Wish my daughter in Tampa and grandchildren in Washington, DC and New York
and my son in Thailand
could be with me tomorrow.
But thankful for all who will be sitting at the big table on this 2013 Thanksgiving day.

December 20, 2008. I just checked. That was the day almost five years ago that you first left me a comment on Lonely Rivers. It was for me the beginning of a very important friendship. Your thoughts and musings are part of my everyday. Have a blessed holiday and know that your blogland friends from everywhere are thinking of you.

Happy Day to you also. Yes--we all get quite tied to each other, don't we? I like my new "family" here in the blogosphere.

I made a chocolate chip cake, dumped it in the pan and realized I forgot the chips. I did the same thing you did and dumped it all back in the bowl! Turned out perfect! Happy Thanksgiving My Dear Friend!!!
