Some people come into our lives and quickly go. Some people move our souls to dance. They awaken us to new understanding with the passing whisper of their wisdom. Some people make the sky more beautiful to gaze upon. They stay in our lives for awhile, leave footprints on our hearts, and we are never ever the same.

Being A Parent

When I started my blog it was to be my own journal,  not really for others to visit or read....just for me. I still feel that my blog is more for just me than for others,  my place,  a place to write about family and feelings.

Right now my heart is heavy,  my daughter is having so much pain with a failed really breaks my heart to see her hurting and in pain.   I wish like everything I could give her some words of wisdom that would make it all better.  I told are pigs.     That seemed to help a bit.

Time will help,  it has only been a week,   she has been home more in the last week than she has been in the last three years.  I guess knowing her family is behind her helps some.    A parent always wants to protect her children from hurt,  but it isn't always possible once they are grown.   Love her so much.

Hello Ginko, you are so right, we loved to blog, loved to see the people we knew, and then, so many stopped. Me included, and why, I don't really even know. One thing I know, my computer crashed, had to buy a new one, and didn't have any of my links. I think i kind of forgot where to go and find my blog, I also lost all of my passwords, so I also had a hard time getting back in. Plus the fact I have almost forgotten how to use blogger. :) I am right now wondering, will this post go to you, or just sit here where you will never see it. I think I am going to have to change the formatting and adapt to a new one, because this one doesn't give me the option of browsing blogs, I have looked and looked and find no way to go to another blog from here. You are the only person who I have found still blogging that I used to know on Blogger, Kind of sad, huh. I will try to keep blogging. I don't really do much besides garden these days. :) So good to "see" you again.

Hi Nea, your comment reached me safe and soundly.
I am also guilty of not blogging - but then I have to remember the words of another faithful blogger buddy - she once said..."Life gets in the way" I guess that's the reason why I stopped.
You won't believe how I desperately tried getting onto my old blogs again - I simply forgot my password!!! Nevertheless, I tried for months on end, without success - - until recently (only because I am stubourn) and wouldn't let it slip by and making me feel dumb,,, I guess I'm a little like the Chinese, they don't wanna lose face (heee hee)
If I may give you a tip on how to find "old" blogger friends,,,, do check as many of your comments from the past... that's how I found you because for the life of me, I COULD NOT REMEMBER YOUR BLOG NAME.
I searched for blogger friends for ages, but it seems "they're all lost at sea"
I am indeed HAPPY that you're still around. Have a great day dear girl and keep well and safe.
