Hello lovely Batties, I started this blog a month ago today, so it seemed an appropriate time to express my appreciation of you all, for being such a big part of it. So, a big heart felt thank you to each and every one of you.
For those of you who have taken the time to comment on my posts, thank you. It is so encouraging to know that people are actually reading and enjoying what I write.
I have been toying with the idea of a blog for over two years. It’s mostly thanks to my son David who has been pestering me to do it for ages. David also set up the layout and other ‘technical’ stuff for me and made an excellent job of the artwork, which I feel gives the blog quite a unique look.
I would like to encourage you to chase after your dreams. Listen to the encouragement of family and friends and be that encouragement for others. It was David’s faith in me that caused me to
believe that I actually could do it. Now I’m wondering why I didn’t do it sooner?!! Though, I also know that it’s all about timing. When the time is right stuff just seems to happen, don’t you think?
Today I had the realisation that where my love of writing is concerned, this Battie has turned from a caterpillar, (keeping my writing to myself in my journals), into a butterfly, spreading my wings and letting the world see me (well, the ponderings of my mind, lol). I always knew I had wings being a Battie, but now with my second set of butterfly wings, I don’t just fly in the dark!
