sigh.

This one really touches me. I'm not used to BEING an inspiration, but rather to being INSPIRED. Thanks and a big, sloppy, velvet-ribbon tied hug to you, Leanne [at Mixed Media Martyr].

Well, you're an inspiration to moi! I really didn't know much at all about blogs till I started reading yours, despite having been writing mine for some months. You have given me ideas on how I can continue my Blogging Life when I return home. :-)

One of these days, I'm going to head out on a plane and end up at your front door with a handful of flowers and the biggest hug ever...I'm serious !!
YOU are on my bucket list !!!

Thank you so much, Toni! You are on my list too!

I am at the start of this adventure called blog, so I am soaking up the new connections I have already made.

I pushed reset on my life about two months ago, you have no idea how much strength and wisdom I am drawing from my new friends here. You rockstar women are inspiring me to find my footing on this new path.

You just made my night :)

Thank you for the nod and like you I feel much more comfortable being inspired then inspiring. But, you girl, do inspire. Your writing is truly wonderful. Don't stop!

Thanks hugely Toni ... I feel I can only repeat or echo the words of the lovely ladies above .... stunned to be included in such "stellar company" ... rockstar women (I love that)... and I just might turn up on your door one day too! Sorry, a day of teaching Dance to teenagers as a sub (and Dance is absolutely not my subject) has left me without the greater use of my communicative faculties .... I need a hot bath.
