When I started this blog 4 months ago, I did not know what I was going to write about.  All I knew was that I had so much in my heart and soul to share.  I also did not know that there are people (in the blogosphere), with such strong emotions and love, and would become  a part of my daily life…a friendship that will grow and lift my spirits every single day…with beauty, joy and such grace!!  I am talking about YOU, YOU and YOU!! 

The respect, warmth and love in our community blows my mind every single day!  We have not met face to face, we live miles apart, we have our own lives to live…yet…we come together here and share our hearts which makes the world we live in a better and happier place.   I want you to know that I treasure every single one of you, your friendship is my greatest gift, you put laughter in my eyes, you are my pillar…and your friendship and encouragement means more than I can ever put into words.

Jingle has rewarded us with so many AWARDS before, (thank you for all your love and support Ji) and want to share each and every one with YOU!!..If you are HERE, please go to my AWARDS PAGE, pick what you want, because YOU deserve them. We recently had the beautiful Pink Award sent to us…I received it back over and over again!!  That is how much love there is.  Thank you for making me feel so special and to YOU who has sent it back.  I am honored and proud to be among such talented writers and poets.

I wanted to write

I got YOU

I wanted a minute

I got YOU

I wanted Love

I got YOU

I wanted an angel

And got ALL of YOU

Thank you…from my heart.

  21. Dear Buttercup,

    It is amazing how such positive vibes come through the writers’ world of blogspheres…especially when you can see so much heated discussions and sometimes hatred elsewhere.

    Everywhere I go, and I am very new at this…Magpie, Stony River and more, all I see is writers giving writers overwhelming support.

    It’s like I have accidentally discovered Eden….

    • I know exactly what you mean…it feels like Eden!! And I am so happy that you came here to visit my nook and will return the compliment. Have a wonderful day my friend ~ Hugs, Amanda
