I'm SOOOO excited!
Today I got my first piece of fan mail! This is amazing. I started this blog because of all the awkward situations that first year of widowhood. Who knew anyone else would even read the words. It didn't matter. It mattered that I got things off my chest.
Somehow blogging is now my hobby. (Secretly, I always wanted to keep a diary but it never lasted more than two weeks). Why it is sticking now is beyond my thinking. I was always encouraged by one of my favorite bloggers, The Misadventures of Widowhood. She still leaves a comment every day. Through her I've met a great group of widow bloggers whom I follow and read every day. I've become friendly with them outside of blogging (email and Facebook and online games).
To receive a complimentary email from a total stranger has just made my day! My year!! Nothing short of another grandchild! Thank you Judy from Venice.
