It was a dark and stormy night...

Three years ago today I posted here for the first time.

On occasion, I will randomly read through my archives.
Sometimes I cringe.
Sometimes I smile.
Sometimes a tear will fall.

I'm glad I stopped using extended................. ellipses.
I'm glad I stopped using different colors for the text.
I'm glad I finally learned the proper way to link.
I'm glad I finally learned how to add a blog roll.
I'm glad I finally learned how to add a photo.

Forever thankful for you and your kindness, insight,
inspiration, encouragement, sharing and friendship.

This place has become a home for my heart.
This place has helped me to open my heart again.
This place has led me to a new life path.

I believe that very often we teach what we need to learn.
I have been writing lessons to myself here.
I hope to never stop learning.


evolution. revolution.
evolve. resolve.
discover. uncover.

Happy blog birthday Darlin'. May we seem many more of these anniversary posts. The blog-o-sphere would be a much worse place without you.

Pondering wouldn't be Pondering....... without them little dot, dot, dot, dot, dot, dot, dot, now would it?

Three years today huh?
(In my bestest Darth Vader voice)
"Impressive... most impressive..."

Don't know where I'd be today if you had chosen not to start Pondering.......

Oh, yes, happy happy happy one! Happy for us, who get to come visit and indulge ourselves in these treats.

Jean, I've learned a lot from you. I've opened up in my explorations because of you. Remembered things that used to be important to me. Remembered they still are, and should not be neglected.

It could be, Jean, that you have, and have earned, much more respect from this blogworld than you realize.
