This whole blogging phenomena is quite phenomenal. 

When I started my blog in February 2010 my main intention was to get my thoughts down.....much like a journal.

Being in the process of recovering from a severe concussion/brain injury, I thought that it would help if I expressed myself about anything and everything.

My, or should I say, our lives were brought to a complete stand still. I could not work or do pretty well anything  that involved lifting, multi-tasking (OK  ladies, I know 'guys' are no good at this anyway), talking for long periods of time, being in large groups and driving a car.

Our life had changed drastically in a second from a fall backwards while skating on a lake with no helmet.

I was very unsure of myself and where I was headed (no pun intended!). So my husband, Ron, had to leave his job to look after me for the first year.

I had no idea that I would be 'meeting' people from all over the world who actually showed an interest in what I was saying.

It has been so good for me.

So what was I to do. Well, nothing for a while. But I very gradually began to feel that I could and wanted to do things again. And blogging was one of those things.

So in a way, blogger friends, you have helped me, whether you knew it or not, in the recovery process.

So in that vein, I would like to thank all of you who take the time to read my blog. It's been very enjoyable on my part learning about CHICKENS, donkeys, goats, horses, dogs, cats (feral ones too), snakes and lizards, and labyrinths, Australia, Wales, England, Oregon, Tennessee, California, New York, Edmonton, Rhode Island, Montreal, Los Angeles, the Carolinas, Texas and all the other places where you all live and visit.

My sister Jo-Ann told me a week after my accident that 'things happen for a reason'. I have held on to that thought and am realizing what has enhanced my life over the past couple of years. And you, bloggers, are certainly a part of that 'reason'. Thanks.
