7 Stamen Salute – A Thank You

Tuesday and Wednesday saw an increase in traffic to both this site and the sister site OgleOhio.com.  As a result, the likes and subscriptions increased.  So I decided to do a post thanking my long-time readers and my new readers for subscribing to my blog, after all this is still June and I am still participating in Lisa Ryan’s “5 Thank You’s A Day 30 Day Challenge.

I am going to say thank you the best way I know how – with flowers.  So this day lily, picked (with my camera) fresh from my front yard, is for you.   There are 7 stamens, you just are unable to see the 7th as it is hidden.

Whether you are new to this site, or a long-time reader, thanks for your support.

Have a blessed day.

“7 Stamen Salute”

Stay tuned as a new weekly series premiers on Monday 6/25 – Rommie & Michele’s Backyard Safari Adventures.  For those of you new here, Rommie is my golden retriever.  We have a sizable yard to care for and have some wild adventures in keeping it maintained.

Day 3 of the “5 Thank You’s A Day Challenge”

It is Sunday and I am working on day 3 of Lisa Ryan’s “5 Thank You’s A Day Challenge.”  It is titled “Spouses and Other VIP’s.”

Well there obviously is no spouse for me to write about.  Heck there is not even a potential boyfriend on the horizon.  (If there is, only God knows about him.)

So I will write about other VIP’s, in this case my friends.  So to my friends young and old, new, newer and newest, and everywhere around the world – “This One’s For You.”

Thank You

  • For freely sharing your smile and your hugs.
  • For not running away from me because I am a widow.
  • For not believing I have cooties because of being a widow.
  • For making me laugh and not being afraid to cry with me.
  • For understanding I am not a threat to anyone’s marriage now that I am single again.
  • For not dropping me as a friend when I get down but willingly help build me back up.
  • For supporting me in my job search, my faith journey and my blogging on JoyReturns and OgleOhio.
  • To my single male friends for knowing I am not out looking for a husband or boyfriend.   (Besides, I was raised the old fashioned way – men make the first move.)

Whether big or small, you have touched my life in some special way. Thank you my friends.

All God’s best to you and your family.
