Bear with me while I reflect on life a little bit here. I have been feeling somewhat better today , after being asleep for the past 2 days with a flu bug that knocked me out with body aches and a slight fever. I don't know about you but when I get sick I tend to get a little depressed. Not sure why that is, but I get a little weepy. It seems that things have just been popping in front of me, testing me to see if I will break. So far I have avoided an all out crying jag, but tears are welling up just a little too often. I ran across some photos of Clifford and I missed him, just looking at his picture. I remembered how soft his fur was, and his bad doggie breath, and how much he loved to follow me everywhere and sit close to me. Teary moment for me..., but really it should be a teary moment. We should miss our friends when we can't see them any longer.
And then today, we went to get Maddie a new dresser with Katy, and I didn't get to see her this week because I was sick. She gave me the biggest hug, and even though she is only 2 I think she sensed we hadn't seen each other this week either. Teary..a little again.
Then we got home and I went to get the mail. Here is a Christmas card from Rudee. Teary again. I was so surprised that she remembered me when she made her cards out. Thank you dear friend.
Then I got on the computer and see that Flydragon, who I came to know from Rudee's blog, has passed away. I really only exchanged a few comments back and forth with her over the past year, but she seemed like someone I would really like if we were to meet in person. She had a great sense of humor and I used to love to read her and Rudee going back and forth. She gave Rudee a Hot Air Balloon Award that was funny.
You just never know where the road will lead us during our daily travels. I sure wasn't expecting to meet people through blogging and actually care so much for them, especially when I may never get to meet any of you face to face. But I find that I do care....a lot about all of you that I have visited these past two years. I remember I started blogging right about this time 2 years ago, right before Maddie was born. One of my first blog posts had a picture of "Harvey" the Jimmy Stewart movie as a topic. I said that I thought blogging would feel something like talking to Harvey....
Well....surprise surprise none of you are like talking to Harvey. You are all very real to me. Thanks for visiting me....and for your friendship.
