Devotion

There are lots of kinds of devotion. There's undying devotion, there's devotion to a cause, a devoted servant, friend or employee. There's even devotion to a blog. I have faltered recently in my bloggish devotion, due in large part to my unyielding devotion to not only the survival, but the strengthening of my small business, and the ability to pay my mortgage. I have missed my Monday Movies review this week, I have slacked off on reading and commenting everyone else's blogs, and I feel TERRIBLE about it.

My life has made a lot of demands on me this past week, and I have been home late, exhausted and completely empty in the creativity department. I hit the blog-wall. I did however answer my phone one morning before I left the house, and heard from the local florist, that they'd been trying to make a delivery for several days. I did notice some tire tracks belonging to some ill-prepared vehicle attempting the steep and snowy ascent that is my driveway. I stopped at the shop de flowers on my way through town, and they pulled a gorgeous bouquet out of the cooler and placed it before me.

I checked to make sure it was really for me. "Who loves me?" I wondered. I grabbed the flowers and took them to the privacy of my vehicle to read the card. Ah, my dear friends kj, and jb, a thank you for helping them out. Aren't friends the best?

The blogs will always be there. Blog friends understand when you take a break, just like I did recently.

What great friends you have but then again, so are you (I heard).

WHHHHHHHAAAAAAAAAA the TATTOO! Hhahhaaaa. I think it's mostly hectic everywhere at the moment and most are devoted to being ready for Christmas Day :) The flowers are beautiful, Red Mojo!!!

Normally I don't like tattoos, but this one is awsome ;-) Beautiful flowers from two lovely friends, that is what you needed, RM. Writing blogs is just fun, not work, mind?

Ces, Thank you for your kind words. I missed you during your break.

Anon, You're right. I have so much to do!

Wieneke, I think the tatt is cool too. The blog is fun, but can feel a little demanding sometimes. I'll try not to let it nag me! :)
