I had a new camera.
I made a commitment to myself to learn photography.
I am still learning.
Q's Corner became my online house.
I opened my garden gate and my front door.
I shared my love of plants and birds and bugs.
I shared my heart.
You came and shared your kindness.
We have laughed and cried together.
We have become friends.
This morning I went to my cutting garden.
I wanted an Anniversary bouquet
of Lilly of the Valley for my desk.
A little nosegay to share with you.
A little "thank you" for your friendship.
It is here at my desk I know you.
I come during the day and read your comments. I am so grateful you care enough to say, "Hello." It is in comments that I feel as if we are talking. It is in comments that I feel connected. Thank you for each word, for each time you stop in and say, "Hello".
I come to your journals, your open doors, to your hearts and am awed by your talent.
I learn from you.
I am inspired by you.
May we have many years together.
