How could I have missed this date?
Reading old entries
and it seems I have been sharing for 5 years.
that is a lot of words and so many wonderful people I have met along the way.
Met you online and not in person - but then the thought surfaces
that when we write
it comes from the heart and we are more open.
All who are still with me and new friends
thank you from the bottom of my heart
for your online friendship......
Written when I was 1 year old...
One year ago I started a blog but I like to call it a journal. At the time I thought "will I have anything to write about." Looking at the number of entries in one year I guess this One Woman had plenty to say. I have written for my enjoyment and from my heart. I think I will take the copies of this one year of rambling and have them bound. Maybe some grandchild or great grandchild might find it interesting to read.
The thoughts have surfaced maybe just write for a year and then just stop. Then as my thoughts continue I think I will continue but will probably be writing about the creating of my new cottage at the edge of the woods. Will write my thoughts on relocating to my home place, new garden adventures and images of all I anticipate seeing in the woods. I will enjoy the wide variety of birds at my feeders and any wildlife that might venture close to my home. That is hopefully they arrive.I have always had several dogs and have missed my Sadie since she passed away last September. Looking forward to making a home for several shelter dogs. I know my little granddaughters will enjoy the area around this home.
Hopefully I will not write about poison ivy. For years when I lived on this land I would get poison ivy several times a year. Always a shot and pills were needed to cure it. Maybe I have become immune - sure hope so.
So all of my dear online friends that have commented over the last year - Thank You from the bottom of my heart. Your friendship has been more meaningful to me then I can express in words. Writing, sharing and your comments opened up a new world for me. Many times over the past year the thought surfaced - how amazing that people world wide found something interesting in my sharing and took the time to respond to me. You will never know the times I have needed a special encouraging word and it seemed when I checked my journal - there it was and it put a smile on my face.
Again thank you and wish I could meet you in person and give you a hug. But feel the hug and sense my smile coming to you at this very moment.
Understanding heavy things can't fly, she let go of what was weighing on her heart, the things she could no longer control or carry. and she gave herself a chance. A chance to reach into the unassuming blue, to embrace the possibility of an open sky, with an open heart. She gave herself a chance to soar.

---I read these words from Jodi on this early morning
5 years later - and realize I needed to once again read them, how very true they are
and need to give myself a chance to once again soar
through these remaining years on earth....
An entry this early morning from One Woman - who has a thankful heart for her writing experience this past year and now a thankful heart years later....
