Itís the Blogginí Love Fest!! By order of La Princessa and the Royal We (thatís me) todayís a day for spreading the love. Without further adieu, hereís my contribution, with my little wishes for my love.
Each morning I start my day with you. Click the little blue E, then Muse, and there are I amÖ in ThymeWise, land of my friend Kim. It all started on a Saturday night when I wondered if there were any pagan blogs, and you were excited about a town called Elkins. Do you remember?
Youíre as close to a blog-mother as I could have, because you opened up the world of blogging to me, and helped me find a deeper voice within myself. You planted the seeds that became the Thursday Theo-logue. You introduced me to new friends who have become loved ones. Iím not sure if anyone on my blogroll would even be there if there hadnít been you.
I love reading your stories, about your clients, your cats, your neighbors, your husband. I admire your commitment to the things that are important to you, the way you donít back down.
And I will never, ever forget that you sent me that bottle of DreamThyme when I couldnít sleep. I know it seems like such a simple gesture, but it still means the world to me and brings me to tears Ė you cared enough about ME to help me. I cannot tell you how much that means to me.
So, I want to thank you for giving me joy each day, and sending me the most divine chocolate truffles; for tales of cats and delving into the mysteries of toilet paper consumption; for sharing your husband when I email him random rants that I think only he can understand, and for guessing who Iím talking about in my ďsecret hateĒ posts (and for secretly agreeing, sometimes); for sharing recipes for soaps and tomatoes inspired by the Gods; for your passion for life and the things most important to you; but mostly, I thank you for showing me how blog-friends become true-friends.
I've written about my greatest wish for you before, and Iíll write about it again, Iím sure, but since my Auntie Zuly wish has to wait a little while I have two others Iíll wish for you: speedy, anxiety-free healing in the meantime, and a free-spending, ďwhatever-you-say-WOW-that-is-so-creative-donít-change-a-thingĒ client.
Blessed be, Kim.Posted by at January 14, 2003 04:58 PM

I'm touched and honored, Zuly, and the feelings are returned. I don't just check your site first thing in the morning, I stalk you obsessively throughout the day! ;)

Ooooh... stalking... You must hate Tuesdays when I don't get to the computer till the later afternoon, huh? ;-)
