For several years now my life has been little more than epic peaks and valleys with portions of peace coming at the oddest times, and, usually, when needed most.  “If it weren’t for bad luck, I’d have no luck at all….” does seem to fit the situation.  However, through the massive peaks and valleys, there have been some constants, some mountains supporting me through them.  And, not just me, but The Husband, Cheyenne and Sniffles, my Sisters, Father, church family, dearly loved friends, and the list could go on and on and on.

Through all of these peaks and valleys I’ve relied on so many people to help me get through.  Several people I’ve come to know through this blog have been instrumental in giving me smiles when I didn’t believe smiles were important.  Not only the people I’ve come to know and cherish, but the blogs on WordPress are equally important for those same smiles, laughter, shared tears, and so very much I simply don’t know how to describe!

Sometimes it feels as if, for me, at times; you never know if your blog makes a difference to anyone, and I am here to tell you all just how important many of you have been, are to me and my physical recovery as well as pure writing encouragement when there felt as if there wasn’t a drop of creativity left in my soul.

God has genuinely blessed me with you guys and your blogs and I just want to say, “Thank you.”

I don’t believe it’s possible to list everyone, but thank you…

There are many more of you I should list, but the list would be too big making this post too long to read.  Thanks for helping me to keep going when it felt impossible to put one foot in front of the other, or one word after the other on the page.

EDIT:  One more to add because it didn’t make it through the “publication” button:  Books and Such, tpolen


About Henrietta Handy

I have returned home to the mountains. No more am I "a mountain-girl far from home." Diagnosed with rheumatoid arthritis at 2 1/2, I understand pain, fatigue, laughter, joy, and love all while on crutches and in wheelchairs. This blog is just about me, mostly the writing side, but there are forays into so many different topics. I am married to a wonderful husband who puts up with my writing, knitting, yarn, with the love of a saint. We have fur babies, and one cat who rules us all.

    Thank you! 🙂
    And I’ll try to get a new story started soon. This long hiatus is the result of a family medical problem and having to prepare two new courses for my adult education classes, all at the same time. I’ve a few ideas kicking around, but none have been written out far enough that I feel safe to start them.
    Meanwhile, I hope your own writing supports your spirits through all the expected and unexpected medical issues.
