Today I received my first blog award. I am thrilled! I am still new to blogging but have found it really awarding. This is not a good time in life, unemployed and undirected for the first time in 35 years, trying to reinvent myself. The process is slow, unfortunately I have to deal with a recession and the government right now. For someone who's co-workers listed her as as a workaholic this is agony, but, I regress. The award is a bright spot in my day! It is nice to know the posts I put out there and the thought that goes behind them are noticed and appreciated. Thank you Val form Monkey's on the Roof. A truly remarkable blog! I have learned so much about another "world" from her site. If you have not gone there ensure you do!
