Where Everyone Knows Your Name

So here it is my 1000th post. One thing I learned today: I don’t write well when I feel pressured to write. I have spent most of today trying to figure out what I wanted to say. Then out of nowhere this song came into my mind. I love this song and it is exactly how I am feeling. 2 ½ years ago I found my corner of the world and it happen to be on this blog. Each time I have changed the name and/or address of the blog; my loyal readers have followed me. Some of you have known me most of the 2 ½ years, while others have just recently pulled up a chair to hear my story. Whenever our however you found me, I am glad you are here.

This blog would not exist if it weren’t for each of you. Each of you has given me the courage to share my story and more importantly to keep hanging on. The love and support I get from each of you is priceless. And for those of you that don’t always comment, just knowing that you read means a lot to me.

My world is a very crazy place right now, but this blog has given me some calmness and feeling like I finally belong somewhere. We all want to have a place where everyone knows our name. That place for me is right here.

So now it’s time to hear from each of you. Please leave a comment and say HI or to introduce yourself if you have never commented.

And here’s to another 1000…………………

1000 posts is alot. I know this because I just looked at my blog (that's been around for nearly 3 years) and I'm only at 300 something. Hee!

I've been here awhile and am so proud of you for writing and taking care of yourself and doing what you need to do.

Brava and here's to several thousand more posts!

Fern said...

Congratulations! You remind me so much of myself and some things I went thru following my first marriage, then into a long-term relationship that ended after the guy cheated, then into some unhealthy dating relationships again... and then into a relationship so good I never thought I'd have anything like it. So I can't stay away, since that is right around the corner for you and it will be so fun to read about it! ;)

hey 1000- you know that is one heck of a batting average..... by the way, my name is shea, i enjoy blogs, long walks by the lake, and people who are real....oh yessss- and Elvis.... nice to meet you............*smirks*

Lynilu said...

HAAAAAAA HAHAHAHA!

I was once accused of making grand entrances! My friend(?) said the lyrics of this song fit me....

You walked into the party like you were walking onto a yacht
Your hat strategically dipped below one eye
Your scarf it was apricot
You had one eye on the mirror as you watched yourself gavotte
And all the girls dreamed that theyd be your partner
Theyd be your partner, and...

Youre so vain, you probably think this song is about you
Youre so vain, Ill bet you think this song is about you
Dont you? dont you?

Ya think??? LOL!!!
