As 2009 comes to a close and a new year is around the corner, I have been reflecting on this year. My family has had to deal with a lot of tough issues, that is life and what is important is how we deal with and learn from them but with the help from above we have made it through. I am closing that chapter and keeping the chapters that were the good ones in 2009. My oldest son getting a fantastic job in his field, my youngest son moving (even though that was a little hard on me) out of state where his heart has taken him. I am very thankful for the love that our family and friends embraced us with during the trying times, being lucky enough to have them in our lives. And for me, stumbling onto a book blog. To all the new friends I have made that have the same level for the love of books and who I can discuss and share with. So many of you to thank…where I would visit, read the posts and admire your blogs but not know about following. For giving me the incentive to try and create a page as my “personal journal” and then taking it to a level that has amazed me. Special thanks to those of you for encouraging me, being patient and helpful when I had blog/computer questions and who gave me the courage to be put on the “requested reviews” list. Thank you ( in no particular order) Vicki from Reading At The Beach, Lori from Lori’s Reading Corner, J.Kaye at J.Kaye’s Book Blog and Karen at Bookin’ With Bingo. And special thanks to those who have joined on as followers of my blog. I will always post with you in mind so that you will visit often. And to 2010, my goals are meeting more nice people, coming close and maybe even hitting the 100+ challenge and to where ever this blog takes me. Thank you all.
