Happy Thanksgiving 2010
Last year at this time, I wrote about my thankfulness for my new baby girl, my family, but most of all for YOU.
I would like to be stunningly original this year, but that pretty much sums it up. When I started blogging four years ago, I had no idea what kind of ups and downs my life would take.
I had no idea I would start blogging about home stuff, veer off into quilting, then around to gardening, then to food and back to home again. I had no idea I would add a second child to my family, or stop blogging for stretches at a time.
One thing I definitely didn't know, and that still stuns me to this day, is that I had no idea that people would help me. Perfect strangers, who I have never met, and will likely never meet, would take their precious time and comment on my dilemmas, my successes and my challenges. Would share my sorrow over sad events or our joy over blessed ones.
I just had no idea.
We all say it a lot, how thankful we are for the people who read our blogs. But it truly bears repeating. I can't imagine a life more blessed than one with all of you in it.
I am humbled by your generosity and your creativity and your passion.
To each of you, whom I really do count as my dear friends -- Happy Thanksgiving. May your holiday season be as bright as all of our lights shining together can be.
P.S. Yes, those are food photos from recipes that I haven't gotten around to posting yet.
P.P.S. I've got lots more to share on the subject of the Front Porch... stay tuned over the weekend! :-)
