I stumbled out of the gates just over a year ago, my pockets full of laughter. Until then I'd lived in a gated community, surrounded by familiar folk living happily ever after.
We were a fairy tale of characters, our lives led by the enchantment of our well-being. Then one day, we were exposed and tempted by the taste of uncharted water.
And the spirit of those who came before, ghosts of time long past, shadows of dreams conjured up in youth, overcame us: me, myself and I. Among us we decided, the braver cut from the threesome.
So, I rose to the occasion, the delicate two remaining, shepherds in charge of lessons, matriarchs of refuge, and valuable sources of comfort.
And with merriment fitted for the moment and joy enough to feed hope, I stumbled out of the gate, my pockets full of laughter.
On that date my life began in a Blog Land occupied by a colony of characters, brave and bold in this new world, foraging for nourishment. And I have profited ever since, from the food of their minds and goodness of their hearts.
Dear readers, followers, friends old and new,
Thank You for picking the laughter from my pockets and filling my heart with gifts far greater.
May the blessings of the season fill your pockets full of splendor, and I'll be sure to stop by and relieve them of the happy sound of laughter.
Peace and Joy and Mingi Love as well!
