Second Anniversary

Dear Friends,
Two years ago today I began "Q's Corner".

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.

Thank you.
May we have many years together.

Congratualations Sherry, running a blog is not the easiest thing to do. I've been doing this for couple years with different blog platforms.

¡Feliz Aniversario!
Two years of great Sherry around, I'm glad I found you :)

Wow; talk about inspiration! Lilly of the valley reminds me of my beloved grandmother, passed ten years now. The one person I felt most closness to;; other than my kids. I'd think of ringing her up; the phone would chime in; I'd call her, she'd comment cheerfully about just reaching for the phone to check on me! Amazing! I hadn't though of that in a while. Thanks so much. Congratulations on your second year! I so enjoy seeing life through your eyes and heart! My humble gratitude. ;) Vikki

I talked with the Orioles and I do think they have sent a message for a few late arrivals to stop at your backyard for a quick, "Hello".
I am so honored to have met you and your blue birds!

Dear Sherry,

It's been one year for us. Let's count on many more. Your posts are always uplifting and kind and they remind me to slow down and appreciate what I have.

Dear Meggie,
Thank you. Here in "blogland" we are so close. I can feel your Winter coming in as my spring is giving way to Summer. I enjoy learning about your world and your ways.

One of these days we will sit in pedicure chairs together and giggle and laugh!
It is an honor to call you "friend".

Dear Barbara,
It is a joy knowing people from all over the world. I come to your journal and see the world through your eyes. I see your country and your birds, bugs and blooms. When I look up at the moon I know she shines down on all of us, just at different times!
Skywatch Fridays with you are so fun.
Thank you for your kindness.
