This past weekend, I had to say goodbye to a very dear friend. He was an incredible man, much like a brother to my husband, and treated our family with so much love and respect. I am having difficulty dealing with his death, and as such, I have not been writing, nor visiting WP as often as usual. Please bear with me, as I work my way through these emotions. Thank you ❤
I woke up this morning, which is definitely a great thing, signed into WordPress, and my jaw dropped! Over 3000 followers and over 200,000 views! I’m at a loss for words. Can you believe it?!
All kidding aside, I cannot thank you enough for sticking with me over these last four years. Your encouragement through tough times, your compassion when I was able to express those times through my poetry, and of course, your friendship, is the reason I am still sharing my poetry. This is a community of wonderful people, able to share stories, relate life experiences and yes, become friends outside of WordPress. I am proud to be a member of this group!
Thank you, again, so much, for making my day that much brighter and so much fuller than I could imagine on my own!
Love to all
Narf finally met his bride to be
Sitting under a magnolia tree
Let’s go out on a date
Won’t get you home late
I promise, he said, wait and see
“Cowabunga!” Narf cried, with joy
A slap on the back, “Atta boy!”
Came from his dear friend Snarf
Who really wanted to barf
This friendship, a girl did destroy
Seems Snarf was just being screwed
By a so called pal, who was rude
Cared not for his friend
And, so this was the end
Of the adventures of two gnarly dudes

I hope the day is bringing you much joy!
Today, I celebrate four years since publishing my first piece of poetry on WordPress. What an amazing journey it has been for me, I have met the most wonderful people, have been inspired by so many more, and look forward to what 2018 has in store for me.
Technically, I began my blog in October 2013, but didn’t share any poetry until January 8, 2014. So does that make today my Poemversary or my Poetday? lol
Thank you, to all of you, for your love and encouragement. I know I’ve said it before, but I hope you all realize how much it means to me. Your comments, likes and friendship, make my heart sing ❤
