When I first started blogging in 2004 I met a lady who took me under her wing and helped me through the process. I had been blogging for about a year before that, but never opened it up to the public. It was supposed to be my journal. But finally I got tired of talking to myself and put myself out there. It was a little scary at first, but once I got that first comment I was hooked! I was on a lot of chat lines etc. but it was very "immediate"...you had to be right on, and didn't really have time to think about what you wanted to say.
Last week my friend Mary Lou lost her youngest brother Mike to cancer. I just wanted to pay tribute to him and give my deepest sympathy to her family. Mary Lou is very special to me, not only because she was the first person I met on blogger, but because she has a huge heart, doesn't suffer fools lightly and tells it like it is, loves animals and nature to pieces...and is a talented producer in all the plays she directs.
Mary Lou, I know you and you sister Phyliss are grieving your loss this week, and I just wanted to tell you how much I am thinking of you...waiting and watching people die is hard. I have been there, so I know. I know.
Take care my friend.
