~ A BIG THANK YOU ~

Have I got your attention now ?? Guess what time it is here at "Happy To Be"

Why it's a very" Happy To Be "Second year of blogging for me...Who would of thunk when I hit publish 730 days ago I would meet so many caring and wonderful people here in blog land..

Reflections:
Of 2 years in the neighborhood :


I can now understand the computer more ha ha!! But just when I think I have blogger down pat they change it again and I have to relearn it all over...And dang it's hard to teach this old dog a new trick..


Blog land is a big neighborhood and there is something for everyone likes and dislikes...Kinda like having cable if you don't like that channel just go to another ...


Blog land has a calendar like a retail store every season is early here we are putting out fall decorations while it still 104 degree outside ha ha!!


If we do a linky meme party for Monday we better be there on Sunday or will be late to the party...


Also if you join in a linky party brew a pot of coffee , take a No-Doze pill and pencil in that day as gone as you will be in front of your computer for many hours while you visit all the other party goers ha ha!! I have also learned that my butt has spread from sitting way too long ..


I also have learned it's not about the number of quantity followers you have but the quality of the followers you have...You know the ones that will always come by just to say Hi!!


I have learned this is a very caring and sharing neighborhood..You my neighbors have lifted me up when I'm down have prayed with me and for me, have cried with me and even laughed with me...


I have learned NEVER leave home without my camera and when I get my 3 daughters together I can scare them to death just by getting out my camera...as soon as they see it they shape up because "Oh No she'll have us on her blog" ha ha!!


I have learned that you my neighbors don't care that I wear my old red robe and need to comb my hair and that I need to tweak my upper lip hairs ha ha!! You just let me come each day into your home and accept me as I am...


You my neighbors have shared my joy in the births of my Great Grand babies, Have prayed for my Len with his heart problems and have just taken the time out of your busy day to let me know your there and you care...What a GREAT Neighborhood I have lived in now for 2 years...


I have learned that women all over the world still have the basic need to make a warm and loving home for their family...

I have learned I hate word verification as I think sometimes I have left a comment and moved on and Poof I didn't do the word thingy...And with comment moderations you don't need the word thingy...

I have learned that this neighborhood knows NO age barrier...Your invited winkles and all ha ha!!


I have learned how easy it is to say a kind word to someone you never met or will never meet...Because sometimes maybe a kind word is just the life line that person may need for the day...I know many times your kindness has reached through my monitor and just touched my old heart...


I have learned I LOVE this neighborhood...And I would like to say THANK YOU for letting me be your neighbor...


Now being this is my second year here I would like to give away 2 prizes to my loyal followers..

I have a $50.00 gift card from Amazon.com that will be send to you...

And being this is Breast cancer awareness month and also my Birthday I have what every woman needs around the house...and No it's not a maid ha ha!!


Apollo 135pc. household tool kit is designed for the handywoman. A portion of the profits is donated to further breast cancer research making this tool kit a practical and meaningful gift. Perfect for the woman who likes to fix it herself the kit includes a 4.8V cordless rechargeable screwdriver plus a claw hammer 4 screwdrivers 8" scissors 6" longnose pliers utility knife 6" adjustable wrench 2" putty knife 12ft. measuring tape magnetic level ten 1" bits a 100pc. fastener set and a UL recharger. Tools are heat treated and chrome plated to resist corrosion. Comes in a convenient molded carry case that keeps tools organized and ready to use.


I love this prize because money goes to Breast cancer research...Don't forget ladies to have your mammogram this month it could save your life...



Now to enter you do have to be a follower and I will put your name in 3 times and if you want to become a follower I will put your name in 2 times...If you do a post about this give away I will add your name 4 times...But please if you leave me a comment let me know if your a new follower so I can add you to the hat...And let me know if you do a post about my give away...This is going to be fun as I'm lousy with math ha ha!!


I'll do the random number thingy to pick the 2 winners on November the first...


Good luck and again THANKS for making me apart of the neighborhood...


Until next time from my mountain to yours,


Hugs and smiles Glria
ps: Thanks for all of your prayers for my Daughter Dawna...Her surgery went well and she's as mean as ever once again ha ha!!

Hi Gloria welcome back I hope you had a good break. I always enjoy your blog. Happy 2nd anniversary. I agree with all you said in this post, people all over the world are very caring, I found that out when I was in the hospital this year. Have a blessed day. Madeline

Sandy said...

Welcome back neighbor! Now I would have to say if I would ever have the opportunity to pick my neighbors, you would be on the top of the list. You have brought me so many laughs since I have started blogging and even before, when I was just a stalker!!! I love all the information you give everyone on all your wonderful antiques and I feel as though I know your family. Thank you for just being there, lots of days you have just been that perk-me-up I have needed. Friend I would follow you if you never had a giveaway.

Oh gosh Gloria, I am a sobby mess right now. I laughed and cried as I read this post. I think you summed it up better than any of us could have. I haven't been the same since I started blogging and it's enhanced my life in so many ways. The friends I've met here, friends like you, are my friends for life and I'm so completely blessed. Thank you dear friend for being you. I look forward to many more birthdays with you.

bj said...

Happy happy Birthday this month...and if that is you in your header, you know, the one wearing the crown....you were adorable!!

I know you took a break...hope you are feeling rested. I, on the other hand, have just about run myself ragged this week..hair cuts, company, Christmas shopping, more company....but it's all been fun.

So glad to hear your daughter is doing so good. I know it's a worry off your mind.

Congrats on your 2 years blogging. Gosh o'mighty...where do the time go so quick?

Now, I have to tell you this is a MIGHTY generous giveaway, sister friend. You have just about outdone yourself on this one.
I'm plumb ashamed to say SIGN ME UP because you have already sent me so many pretty things. But, I sure could use the 50. gift card and the pink set is something every woman NEEDS. Thanks, dear one, for the chance to win.

I have followed you since this all started..and would follow you to the end of the earth!!:))

Will put this on my sidebar.

LV said...

Best wishs on the second year of one the best times of your life.I agree with everything you said about our fellow bloggers. It has been like an extended family to me. I had my two years in April this year. There is so much I do not understand about the features of blogging but I have managed to get my post up. I found you from your comments on BJ's blog. She and I are friends. Your writeup on blogging is the best and so true. You think you are a senior, just pay me a visit. You have another follower now.

laurie @ bargain hunting said...

Oh Gloria, this post is just PERFECT! You said everything I would have said, but you said it better than I would have said it. Blogville is such a wonderful and amazing place. (2 yrs ago, you & I would never have thought we'd still be bloging 2 yrs later!). (We also probablly thought we'd still be visiting RMS 2 yrs later, but that hasn't happened). Great post, and OF COURSE, I am a follower. (You just reminded me that I had a 2 yr anniversary too - didn't do a thing about it-Yikes! I'm getting sooo old; can't remember anything anymore). Happy Anniversary sweet friend in your old red robe. laurie

xinex said...

I am so happy Dawna is doing well, Gloria. You are so funny. That's what I say about ma too, She is getting better because her bad habits are coming back, lol. COngrats on your second year and what generous give aways! And of course I am a follower! If you have a chance, please come back and go down one post. I would really love for you to see my ancestral home. Thanks...Christine

Sue (Someone's Mom) said...

I love what you said about blogging. It is something that is so hard to explain to people who don't do it.

I am so glad you are here. You have become a favorite friend. Your kindness and support have really helped me get through the worst time of my life. I'll never forget it.

Of course I'm a follower...and I've already had my mammogram!

You are such a lovely person and it has been nice getting to know your great family through your blog. I am so glad that Dawna is on the mend and is back to being fresh! Ha-ha!

Way to generous, but whomever the winners are will be grateful, I am sure. Well, happy anniversary again, my dear Gloria!

You welcomed me with open arms and tons of help when I started my blog about a year ago. I would not have stayed with it had it not been for you. I'm not a technical person at all but you had the patience to help and direct me. And yes, this ding dang Blogger keeps changing! :-)

Bill said...

Hi Gloria,

I know I say this every time, but your posts make me laugh out loud like nobody else's. Then, just when I think you're headed one direction, you throw in a remark that tugs at my heartstrings and has me getting all teary-eyed. I think that makes you a very good writer, or maybe just a very good person who touches everyone you meet in Blogland. I'm glad you're you! Happy 2nd Anniversary!

Fondly,
Bill

Mystica said...

Diann said...

First of all...CONGRATS on your 2nd anniversary!

What a great post! You so hit it right spot on with everything you said. Who knew we could meet so many amazing women all over the planet and feel like they are our neighbors! We spend wonderful hours in each other's homes weekly, we have been to each other's family get togethers, we have prayed for one another, we have laughed at each others stories, we have helped each other bring a smile to our faces when we thought we didn't have any smiles left. It has been a wonderful journey and I hope it continues for any years to come!

And I am thrilled to have you as one of my neighbors! Hugs and congrats again on 2 years!

(of course I am a follower!)

Cass @ That Old House said...

Hi Gloria!!!

happy 2nd birthday in Blogland. But how DARE you take a picture of me in my sexy lingerie and put it at the top of your post? :-)

Of course I am a follower -- and one of your biggest fans. (And I agree with you about word verification -- and now even moderation isn't needed if you use Blogger b/c their spam filters are SO GOOD now that you almost never get any spam and when you do it goes into a separate folder and you can dump it b/4 it's on the blog.).

And OF COURSE I am a follower? Anyone who isn't one of your followers is missing out big time.

Love you, kiddo -- for your sense of humor, your zest, and your many kindnesses to me and to others ...
Cass

Dawn said...

Gloria, I can't tell you how much being your "neighbor" has meant to me! Congratulations on your 2nd anniversary! Love ya girl!

Hi Gloria Sweetie...
I have read and re-read through here as I just knew that I had added a comment. But nope I can't find a one, however I remember reading everything. So let's give her another try.

I am definitely a follower sweetie. We have been through so many things together. I love, love, love your writes. They are always precious and breathtakingly beautiful. You have the gift to share.

It has been such an honor to share with you over the last 1 and 1/2 years. I have been blogging that long now, and I remember you being one of my first visitors. I was so tickled. I still get that feeling every time you pop by. Thank you for allowing me to call you friend sweetie. It brings me great joy.

I hope you have a beautiful Halloween and will pop back by again soon. Many hugs and so much love, Sherry
