All day I've struggled with what to write for this day. I spent the morning reading lots of posts. Several of them touched my heart. But, still I struggled.
I loved the post listing"10 things you don't know about me". I felt that would not be a fair post because The slicers don't know me and I don't know any of the slicers, personally. I do remember their blogs from reading and commenting the past 2 years and throughout the rest of the year, I follow some of them on my blog.
I read the post about living in numerous cities abroad. It was an amazingly unusual tale for me to read, because after age 9 I never changed schools. I even taught there for 29 years. I've lived in my current house for 28 years.
I read posts about working closely with great staff , which I did for 29 years. In my current job, I work more in isolation. Today I visited a scheduled event and everyone was so friendly. It is just that I'm not often involved with these events.
And I read posts about raising young children. It is true they grow up way too fast! Our son lives 150 miles from us. We are planning lunch with them next week after a doctor appointment.
I can live vicariously through these blogs.
