Like most of you today my thoughts and prayers today are with our women and men who are in the Armed Forces serving our country and for all those who served in the past.
My heart aches when I think of all the lives that have been lost while defending our country. I still miss my friend Ronnie Slay who gave his life at such a young age while fighting in Viet Nam. Lot's of day's I can still see his wonderful smile and beautiful eyes.
Saying thank you to our hero's just does not seem like enough but when I see someone in uniform I always tell them Thank You for serving. Try it you will get a wonderful response from them.
Today it is already the last Monday of the month which is when I try to link up with Donna at Brynwood Needleworks for Memory Lane Monday's.
Usually I tell a long story of something in my past but today I wanted to write about my past memories of when I first started blogging.
On my previous post I wrote about how appreciative I am of having blogging friends and how lucky I am to have you in my life. Well that got me to looking back on my very first month of blogging and I found that I actually had a comment on I think it was my second post. Of course, it was a while before I had another friend comment but I still remember the excitement of finding out that someone had actually read my blog. lol
Do you remember those memories of your first few months of blogging?
Who was my first comment-er well it was Vicki at Operation You. I then clicked on her site and was excited to find that she is still blogging. I also found that she still has a lovely site and hated I had lost contact with her. If you click on her site you will enjoy meeting a new friend. You know I am all about meeting new friends and enjoying the ones I am blessed to have found on here.
After reading a few of Vicki's post I checked to see if I followed her. Well blogger showed I was but I was following her anomalously. The only reason I can figure out why it showed that way is because being a new blogger back then I did not even know how to follow some one correctly. So after all this time I corrected that and now it makes me wonder who else am I following the same way. I will have to try and figure it out.
It's fun to go back and reread you old post and see what you were writing about in that time of your life.
Also I found my old Temptation Monday's post where I posted about some of my blogging buddies art work. Gosh I really miss doing those post. I think it was after my injury that I discovered I could not keep up with doing these Temptation Mondays because of how many friends sell their art. That is when I came up with the idea of my Temptations site.
Now I regret I have neglected it. The last few months I have been trying to figure out how to showcase these artist again like before. My purpose of Temptations was to introduce my friends to exceptional group of bloggers who are artist. Hopefully in the near future I can once again work on that site and be a better friend to these gifted bloggers. Any ideas on how to do this just let me know I am open to suggestions.
Well friends I need to get off here but I do hope you are enjoying your special day and remembering our troops. Add them to your prayers and Thank them for serving our country.
Also wishing you a beautiful week ahead. Let me know how your doing and try to stay cool. The heat index is already way to high. Incredible for only May.

This coming Friday is when Christi and I are starting the Eat to Live diet.
Love to all
