Nearly three years ago (has it really been that long?) I started Lulu’s Musings at the suggestion of my daughters who knew I enjoyed writing and that I had a ton of photos that were never shared. OK, I thought, a blog would be a great way to keep in touch with friends in Houston and Rockport when I am away from each of those places. While that has happened, something else has occurred that I never anticipated. New people began reading my blog and just like that I was in touch with people all over the globe. What an absolute gift that has been!
In Blogland there are a number of awards that are passed around. Though I don’t post those on my site, I am so grateful to be included among some really wonderful blogs and grateful to the readers who put me in tall company. Just today I heard from Cultural Life that my musings are nominated for Blogs on Fire. This blogger was drawn to my posts on Maine, and I am very grateful to know they are enjoyed and worthy of the recognition.
As with all these awards, I am to tell you something about myself. Hmmm, that is not as interesting as some of what I write about, but here are a couple of tidbits.
I view life as a tapestry made up of threads of many colors and textures. Each one has a special significance or represents a memory I hold dear.
While in college, I was in the FSU circus. If you ever have a chance to visit during the spring performances, it is a treat to see how accomplished these college performers are. It’s the real deal!
I have 8 children, only 2 of whom are my real and adored daughters. The others are young people from Europe, Asia and South America who spent a high school year in the States. Each one is special, and I treasure the relationship with them.
Part of receiving an award requires nominating other blogs for readers to discover. That’s the hard part because there are so many wonderful ones out there. Today I am listing several that are very well written, offer good tips on a variety of subjects and have wonderful photographs. I hope you enjoy them as much as I do.
Thanks to all of you who read, follow, comment. You are much appreciated and are the reason why I will continue passing on the threads that weave together the tapestry of life.
