One Year Old


I’m throwing a little celebration here on “small drop” today!  One year ago, on February 2nd, this little experiment began and I had no idea what I was doing.   I still don’t know exactly what I’m doing, or if I’m doing it right, or if it’s even worth doing!  I do know my little blog isn’t fancy-schmancy or in league with the big-girl bloggers out there.  But I’m content with a small space to articulate my small thoughts to my small audience!  So, happy birthday, “small drop”!  Let’s see if you survive a second year!

As I hit this milestone, some thanks are in order.  Plus, I’ve been watching those awards shows and have been making up my own acceptance speeches in my head.

Thanks to my son-in-law, Noah, who said to me one January day, “You should have a blog.”  Within a few seconds and a few clickety-clacks on the laptop, a new babe was born!  However, I was extremely intimidated and it took me a month to get enough nerve to publish my first post.

Thanks to my two girls, who encouraged me in so many ways. They assured me that I did, indeed, have something to say, and then told their girlfriends to read their mom’s blog.   However, if my darling daughters were the only ones who ever read this, it would be enough for me. 

Thanks to my son, who put a link on his facebook page to my “This Is Why” post and gave me the thrill of my blogging life when 78 people visited “small drop” in one day.

Thanks to my other son, who allowed me to write about his escapade in “Take Meat Out to the Ballgame”.

Thanks to PB, who doesn’t mind when I sit him down and plop the computer in his lap and say, “Want to read my blog?”  He loves me.

Thanks to my friends who actually stop by on their way to Pioneer Woman,  as well as readers who drop in by accident.  You have no idea how it thrills my heart to know you’ve been by for a visit!

Thanks to my producer, my director and supporting cast…..oops, getting carried away! 

One more:  thanks to God, who was the original Word that became flesh and lived among us for awhile.  And continues to live among us.  Amen!

    • Yes, sorry! You are a trooper and I love that the bad weather couldn’t keep you away! If school gets cancelled, then we cancel studies and youth group that day also.
