I’m late, I’m late, for a very important date…

white rabbit 

I feel like the White Rabbit from Lewis Carroll’s book, Alice in Wonderland.  I have completely missed my one-year anniversary of blogging! An entire year has gone by, and because there has been so much going on in the Sullivan household these past few months, I totally lost all track of the date.

My first post was made here on March 5, 2009 and it received eight comments within a two-day period. Now while that may seem an insignificant number to many of you, that was eight more than expected for this unknown blogger who finally put herself out into blogging cyberspace after contemplating it for several months. And let me tell you that I was absolutely thrilled to read every one of those  eight comments.  What is amazing to me is that those eight sweet souls are still commenting on my blog today. 

Wow! I have met so many people, both in person and virtually, from this wondrous & fun world of blogging. It is a wonderful medium whereby we can begin as strangers commenting on topics that interest us, then become friends and glean so much information and inspiration from each other.  Who woulda thunk it?!

So, even though I am a little late in hosting a give-away on the exact date,  I still plan on having one to thank all of you who have stuck with me throughout the past year.  I have so missed not having the time to blog recently or go out shopping at thrift stores or estate sales, but with Mr. S’s improving health and the weather changing for the better these days ( sunshine and warmer temps,YEA !!),  I should have more free time for myself.   

I actually made a trip out to a favorite store last week and bought some nice things at a going out of business sale.  Something from those purchases will most definitely be included as a prize.  So let me contemplate this over the weekend and I will announce the give-away next week.  Who cares if we celebrate late- a party is a party, right?

See you in a couple of days. I’ve missed you all and want to get back to posting and visiting real soon! 


P.S.  Mr. Sullivan’s health is improving significantly. He does have to have a surgical procedure next week to remove the scar tissue from his knee in order for him to get some more mobility and flexion to the joint.  It’s a bit of a setback to his progress, but the doctor and therapist stressed that the procedure should facilitate more movement  in a shorter amount of time.

We've missed you Sue! I hope Mr. Sullivan gets better by the day. You two have had tough time the last few months.

Congratulations on your blog anniversary!

Hi Sue....You know I think we both started our blogs about the same time. I had forgotten too! I thought I was one of our original 8 but I guess I wasn't. I know it wasn't too long after you started that I became a follower. Time flies, doesn't it? I am happy to hear Mr. S is doing so well! Are you not just loving this weather???? Take care, Patti

And we do look forward to hearing from you! Time does indeed fly! :)

Happy Friday Dear Sue Sweetie...
I am always so happy to see you post. I so enjoy your posts with my morning cup of tea. Thank you for sharing.

Congratulations on your 1 year post. What a milestone that is. I am so proud. Especially with everything that has been going on with DH.

Speaking of DH. I will be praying about this upcoming surgery for him. I pray that he is well. He certainly wants to get as much range of motion as he can with the upcoming year. We know that he will back to his old self in no time at all. God will see to that. He has brought him this far.

Have a beautiful Friday my sweet friend. Please know that I will be praying for you both each and every day. Country hugs and much love, Sherry
