It's Been A Year

Tomorrow is the Anniversary of my Journal's First Entry... I cannot believe it's been a year already! Life. Oh, what a year can bring...

I started Journaling shortly after my guy decided to go back on the road. He's a long haul truck driver, and being so, he is gone a lot more than I like. I miss him so much it hurts. Being able to write my thoughts and feelings to him in my private Journal allowed me to feel closer to him while he was away. I eventually ventured out and started reading other Journals, and wanted a place to share my stories and own amateur photos.

Some of my favorite entries of the past year:

Black with Gold Trim ~ A story of Harley, my first Yorkie. Just a month after this posting, we lost Harley. He's now waiting for us at the Rainbow Bridge.

My Baby Girl ~ A photo collage of my daughter.

Peanut, Our Little Miracle Yorkie ~ Peanut almost didn't make it.

My Idaho & Puppies ~ Beauty in my backyard and Puppies all summer long.

For all my regular visitors, your comments mean so much to me. Thank You all. Sonya, thank you for the graphic!

Here's a current photo of Sadie, one of Lucy's puppies we kept. Sadie will be six months old this week.

Congrats! That is the kind of dog my mom wants when she retires next month although Dad is not too thrilled because he doesn't want to walking a dog. Ha!

Oh my gosh, Sadie is growing up! Such a cutie. I'm so glad I found your journal. Not only do you help feed my yorkie addiction with cute pictures, but you are a wonderful person as well. This is one of my favorites for sure. Congrats on the one year anniversary.

Hi there. I knew you needed that graphic!! LOL.
Glad you have enjoyed your journal. And we have enjoyed it as well. I hope this year brings you much happiness and joy that will replace some of the sadness in this past year - Harley, your guy being gone so much, your daughter being away and then the family thing around Christmas time. I think so much of you...you are a wonderful person and a real trooper.....and I enjoy reading your entries. I will never forget the time you ran down the UPS guy to find your camera. LOL. I think that was you wasn't it? LOL>
Hope you have a good week.

Happy Anniversary! Sadie is so cute. I myself has a travelling hubby so I can relate. I won't take that away from him though because he really loves to travel and he does love what he is doing... http://journals.aol.com/dcmeyer420/DearDiary/

I know how happy I was when my one journal made a year...I felt that was such an accomplishment, because I never thought I would be journaling so long...and now, not only has it been way over a year, I'm boarding 2 years...but I have many journals now...and a lot of great friends made thru it all....

My hubby used to be a long haul driver as well so I can appreciate what it was like to be without him. Found your journal through another and I shall certainly be back to read more.

I hate being away from my wife! It happens very rarely but it seems like it lasts forever.

I should have written more about that in my recent entry on silences in relationships but I focused more on separation from death, than physical separation or divorce.
