I was thinking and sometimes that's dangerous :-)  
I am coming up on a year with LJ in August. I was just think about this the other day. I have 45 LJ friends more or less. These are all people that have come into my life during the last year, yet there are some that I feel like I have known a lifetime!

I am basically a shy person. Relationships come hard for me in person, and I am pretty much a loner. Here in LJ, it's been a bit easier and I have gained so much by sharing in all of your lives. I think we've all grown quite a bit during this year. I know I have and I can see the growth in all of you too. If LJ should go away tomorrow, there would be a big hole in my life. I pray that LJ is here to stay for at least a while longer.

Why am I writing this now? I don't exactly know. I just felt like telling everyone how much you mean to me. I enjoy being a part of your lives and having me be a part of yours - both the good and the bad. God bless you all (even if some don't believe in Him :-p).

I can definitely relate to the shy part.

My daughter is softspoken just like her Mom and I am trying so hard to try to push her to be more assertive.
Easier said, than done....:-)

I began my journal on the 27th of Sept. 2000.
Although, if I recall correctly, I never posted till October.

You have always been the voice of reason for me.
For that, I thank you!

Your friendship means the world to me.
So......Stay right where you are, Don't touch that dial(remote){channel}!!!!*smiling* LOL

Re: What a blessing....
I try to see the possibilities and potentials in people and hope they will do the same with me. Usually, it works. God bless you!

Re: lemony, ligerish ducttaparian
Thanks Ldy! {{hugs}}

I was just looking at your nom de plum there. I can guess it on the lemony and I think ducttaparian may have something to do with tear ducts, but I haven't the foggiest about ligerish. :-)

Re: lemony, ligerish ducttaparian
teehee : )

Actually, it comes from this post (or, more precisely, from darkbloom's lovely compliment in the comments beneath it).
