I had a chance encounter with a stranger yesterday....intrigued?
Here I was at the supermarket, daydreaming away while packing my goodies, when a total stranger came up and said "I just want to say how much I love your BLOG!"
HOW EXCITING IS THAT!!!!!
I must say....it felt super cool to be approached by such a lovely lady...who's name I have forgotten, because I am hopeless with names...and to be recognized for doing something that I love. At times I have considered giving this blogging game up. I think its something that we all contemplate, but yesterday when I was told how much enjoyment something I do brings to someone else...well that was the boost I needed to keep going for another year or two!!
As a parent I keep trying to instill in the kids that 90% of people are good and if they hang out with good people, then they will be able to notice a badie a mile off and stay clear. I think that is one thing that blogging and the sisterhood that it encourages, has installed in me. 90% of strangers are lovely, kind and gentle people. We do not have to fear EVERYONE but we need to be aware that unsavory types do exist. So if you do read my blog and you see me floating around in the streets and you don't have a axe in your handbag....come and say HI....I'm always in for a chat!!
So to the lady who I met and would love to catch up with again, heres a bunch of flowers for you. I hope our paths meet again and we can sit and have a cup-pa and cake!!
