A Very Kind Community...

 

 
This week has been a Good Week.....nothing out of the ordinary, nothing too special, but a good week. Time with friends, time with family, time alone....yes, it's been good.
 
It's a funny old malarkey this blogging business don't you think? I've said it before, but it really does feel like I'm just having a little chat with friends. So many of you pop by each day to have a peek in my world, and I often wonder why. But then I love peeking in on so many of your worlds, so I do understand.
 
I've had so much support since I started this blog. Something I never envisaged. This really is one wonderful creative community. And not just on my blog, I see it all the time, all over blogland. And isn't it wonderful......when there is so much sadness in this world, so many awful things happening.....it's great that in our own community, people reach out to each other.
 
Just lately I've received some very lovely parcels, gifts from people who wanted to show me they cared. A pin cushion from my lovely friend Penny, yarn from Annette, and the most delicious Liberty bunting from Clare.
 
Annette and Clare don't know me, but wanted to show me they care. Wanted to show me they were thinking of me. Penny does know me, and still wanted me to know she cared!!! This just bowls me over, makes me feel hopeful.
 
You may not realise it, but by stopping by my blog, letting me know you've visited, you've really helped me get through a very difficult time. So thank you, THANK YOU.....I feel like I've emerged through, a slightly different person because of the path I've travelled, but I've emerged!
 
I'd love to hear your stories, what has being part of this community meant to you? How have you been affected by this community?
 
 
Thanks My Dears, for reading, and for your support....
 
Amanda :) xxx

  3. Dear Amanda, I so agree with you. The kindness and words of comfort are so ample in this bloggy world. I have been so comforted this year after Mom's death. Please know you are loved and cared about here in my little corner of the world.
    Hugs,
    Sharon

  8. It's amazing and wonderful how supportive and kind this community can be. Including you! I remember almost three years now you left me a message when my mother was so ill and passed. You understood my pain and could feel my heartache. It's a good thing. Big hugs :)

  12. I mostly enjoy that there are so many different blogging communities to dip in and out of - craft, vintage, minimalism, scandi style, fashion etc - it's very inspiring!

    Blogland is an amazing place. I've received so many gifts and encouragement through hard times and good times. It is hard to not grow and emerge through this community. It is great to receive but it is also fantastic to give, so my pleasure. Enjoy!

    1. You've shown such kindness Annette, thanks so much! I'm not sure why PicMonkey doesn't work on here, it's a shame as I think I'd make good use of it! :) xxx
