Ten years ago I discovered the world of blogging and I was mesmerized. My friend Anne, introduced me to the world of blogging all those years ago and through her links, I discovered a few more blogs. With each week that went by I found that I really looked forward to reading each and every post on these blogs...such a treasure! It was such a new way to share and read my love of fiber and knitting. Back then, I think that I may have been following 10 blogs and one of those blogs was the blog of someone I so love to call "friend" now.
Margene and the Zeneedle blog.
Over the years we grew up a friendship that I have grown to love.
I have visited her home in Utah and she has come to New England to visit with our close-knit group of friends here, and each time we visit, it's like we have known each other all of our lives. It's a friendship that I treasure, along with a few other of my blog friendships.
Margene always commits to handwriting notes to friends in February and I love that I am a recipient of one of these notes most years. Like Margene who says she has terrible handwriting (not so much), I have handwriting that is challenging to read as well, so I completely appreciate and love the effort that she puts into her February notes. When I opened up the card from I received from her this week, I could only smile.
"Sparkle" was what I saw first and it did indeed make me smile.
When I discovered the world of blogging, it opened up a huge new world for me living way up here in the North Country of New Hampshire. Through blogging, I have met what I now consider to be my best and closest friends. We have supported each other through the highest highs and the lowest lows and I know we will continue on doing the same.
Thank you Margene...you are a huge sparkle in my life and I am so happy to call you friend!!
