Old Friends and some New Friends

Since I joined the wonderful world of blogland, I have been so impressed with how so many people from other sites are here and I consider them old friends. Then there are those that you get to know quickly and soon they feel like old friends. Silvia at JUST THE BEGINNING has become one of those friends. I have only know her for a while, but her warmth and inner beauty just makes you feel like you've been friends for a long time. I was so honored when she recently gave me this wonderful and lovely Friendship Award. I hope all of you will visit her and get to know her. She is truly such a lovely person, and so talented. You will love her blog. She does the most amazing vignettes. Thank you Silvia, I count it such a blessing to have you as a friend.

I have also stumbled across some other wonderful blogs that you might like to check out. Most of these are fairly new and they each have so much to offer. Below is a list of some of my new friends. Please visit them and welcome them to the world of blogland. You will be blessed.

I so remember when I first started my blog how all of you were so generous to become followers and encourage me. I do thank you all and I am glad to call you all friends. Hopefully you will visit all these wonderful ladies and find new friends too.

Thanks for stopping by and I do appreciate and look forward to your visits.

Hugs, Marty


  1. Hello Marty, :)
    I do see you now and I thank you very much. I agree it is a mystery as to why you never showed up before now. I think Blogger has a few quirks now and then.

    Congrats on the sweet award from Silvia! It's such a pretty one too.
    She is a very kind person and I will pay a visit to the bloggers you passed it to.

    Have a wonderful weekend.
