Four Years

Today is a milestone for me......four years ago on this date, I became a blogger.  Honestly, I didn't have a clue, Rick ( my hubby) pushed me into this.  I thought I would write a few months, maybe a year at the most and that would be it.  But something happened.......I found connections, I found a voice, and I found new friends.  I was so unsure of myself......yet I continued ........many times, I have thought about quitting.  But here I am, a blogger for four years.

I hope, I pray that my words or at least some of them have meaning.  I have tried to be open and honest, to share my thoughts and lift some spirits.  This has not been an easy path......especially after my treatments started.....that is when I really wanted to quit.  But this blogging in many ways became an extension of my teaching and that is when it began to click for me.  Not that it would become a yoga class, at least not one of postures......but that I could share how yoga has worked in my life and my students lives.  And then came the treatments......and I realized that how many people just in my world sat in those big green those chairs changed my world and everyone else who has ever sat in them.  I understood that it was ok to share the world of green chairs, it was ok to talk about it.

So for the past four years, I have shared thoughts (good and bad), yoga, music, and my life in the big green chairs........and you all, my readers have shared my tears and fears through the tornadoes that devastated our state, the joy and sadness of my yoga classes, the ups and downs of our music,
life on a small Alabama farm, the world of big green chairs, and everything else in between.
I am grateful tonight, that you read my words, that you share your comments and you lift me up when I am very low, and share my joy when it fills my heart.  I pray blessings of good health, joy and peace for all of you tonight.  Thank you for a wonderful four years.
