I seem to have this great talent for disappearing off the face of the planet. Then I get lonely and think that no one likes me and I have no friends... where really I am more to blame than anything/ anyone because I don't return phone calls, emails (though sometimes this is because I change my email address because the spam people found me) or letters. And sometimes it's because I've moved. But regardless of the reason, I still find myself sitting at home and feeling friendless, unloved and reciting Dora.
So today I went on a blog that I like to frequent and got inspired. Quincy Cottage wrote a great piece on friendship and what it CAN mean. So I have tried today to touch base with people on facebook and different blogs that I have stopped by. I've thanked them for their friendship and/or told them that I appreciate them. Thanks Quincy Cottage! Those who have stopped by here, please go visit Quincy Cottage. Hopefully it will inspire you and the world can be a more positive place.

I also got a blog award from a rekindled friendship the other day and have been trying to figure out how to post it all. Thanks again Chrissy!

  1. That's so sweet Jamie! Thank you. You are doing a great job with your blog. It takes lots of time to build up a readership so just keep it up. It's a great way to keep a journal as well. You can print it into a blog book when you have enough entries.
    Have a good weekend and have Joe take you out so you aren't quoting Dora all day for gosh sakes!

  2. Great post Jamie. Good for you on reaching out to people! You and Joe should definitely go out together and do something fun. You are doing a great job with your blog!


  3. Joe just got the keys to his new building on Friday. I haven't seen him much and have been told that I won't for at least a week.... But I would love to go out! I am tired of microwave meals! ;)
    Thanks for the comments

  4. Thanks Jamie for your kind comments and link to my post. I am much like you in that I have to force myself to be outgoing. But it is worth it in the end when you connect with wonderful people who become your frineds. You are doing a great job with this blogging. It still is frustrating to me. I have to have a lot of help and must wait for Jen to put the award on my blog but Thanks so much! Keep posting!

  5. So I am a little slow at this blogging thing, and I just found where you did the award. Thanks!
