  1. This was a fun post to read. I first found your blog when you were doing the combined posts about yourself and your special kids. I thought the small graphics you sprinkled through the text were so fun, and that’s still a great addition to your writing…just makes it fresh and different. You find so many great graphics!

    Like you, I find that blogging has helped me define and refine my thoughts, and has connected me to a community of writers and readers…very diverse, and very interesting. And I learn so much from reading fellow bloggers’ posts. A good way to enlarge my world, from the comfort of my own sofa! ~ Sheila
