When I started this blog a few months ago I never imagined that anyone other than my family and friends would actually read it. I started it so that my kids and immediate family would have a place to go if they wanted to know what was going on in my life…since I am on top of a mountain. What started as an outlet has truly been a humbling experience. As of yesterday I have almost a hundred followers on my site. I don’t even know a hundred people, let alone any who would want to read what I have to say. Thank you!
I have been presented throughout the past few months with several awards. I haven’t reciprocated the rules of the game and I will apologize. I am flattered and honored by those who have picked me for the Versatile Blog Award, the Liebster Blog Award, and I believe there was another one a month or two ago. Thank you again. I can’t just pick five top bloggers. I wish I could. A tidbit of quirky information about me…I don’t follow rules too well. I get lost on the first sentence. It’s horrible. I know this and I wish I could oblige with all that needs to be done to pay it forward each time I get a nomination. It actually stresses me out because I feel like I am hurting someone’s feelings for not moving on with the rules!
I love reading blogs. I have a lot of them go directly to my phone so when I am in a line, or waiting in a doctor’s office, or patiently waiting for the world to move slowly around me, I check out the many sites I follow. I love them all. I have added a few below. They are not in any order. Consider this YOUR nomination for the “Entertaining Millie Award.” (Note: since I am not computer savvy please note that I have not formatted the links to the thingy that brings it to the direct site–ignorance is my only defense).
I am certain that I am forgetting many more. I apologize for this! I wish I had the time to pass on the knowledge you all have provided for hours of entertainment. Thank you! Also, I can’t be more grateful for all of you who stop by this blog site and actually read my thoughts. If you are ever in the mountains of Western North Carolina I hope you stop by our retreat center and say hello. Keep on writing and inspiring me! This community of writers has been a universal education for me and I hope to continue learning from all of you.
