I don’t want to make a big deal out of it, as I try to be humble, but I have just reached an unbelievable milestone:  6,000 followers!  It really IS beyond my comprehension how my little blog has attracted so many.  The funny thing is, I feel like I KNOW all of you!  That we are FRIENDS. Just chatting over a cup of tea.  About life and making the best of what life throws at us. Together.

Thanks for being there!  You are a blessing to me.

    You are a blessing to all of us as well!!!

  2. Wow! Praise the Lord. Your blog is an inspiration to me and to a lot of others (6000 others)!

  3. WOW! Congratulations on both your blog and your book!

    • I’m afraid my blog is more popular than my book…
      I once had a book agent tell me to shut down the blog because people wouldn’t pay for something they can get for free. Alas, I cannot stop writing…

      • My books are totally different from my blog, so I can’t even compare them. The blog is my creative outlet.
        If writing gives you joy, then do it!
        All best.

      • If you need ammunition against a book agent, tell them that at least one person, (me) bought an e-version of your book after connecting through your blog. It is not always about connecting with everyone, it can be about connecting with the right people. Keep up the good work, on blogging, on writing, on raising awesome children!

  4. Congratulations!! I was just mentioning this morning to a friend how humbled I am with 30 followers…I could not imagine 6000! WAY TO GO!!

  5. It has been such a pleasure to drop in on your family. You are certainly an inspiration to all of us. Congratulations on your milestone. Kupaianaha!

  34. Your blog is great! Congrats!

  35. I’m so glad I found your blog, you’re an inspiration! Well done to you!

  36. That’s a great milestone! I do wish sometimes I could do that. I know I have to try harder in getting to people but am doing a lot & bzasallgetout is a website I made which I am all over the place getting everything taken care of that I try to do. I have been working on a .pdf that is about health problems & remedies to take care of those health problems we all have. I have been experimenting with finding out about my 6 health problems & getting 1/2 way there right now in 5 years after 40 years of wrecking my body playing sports & working in most of the worst labor jobs my body could handle. It has been an honor to read your posts & dealing with what you have going on. Am now just catching up as I keep adding to my .pdf I am working from library books to get information after trying the solutions they have in them to prove they work. Keep inspiring & have a great day too!

    • It sounds like you are a busy guy! I am honored that you take the time to read my blog!

      • Yes, I am finally getting some ideas of what to say & get away from my blog sometimes to read to make comments because I was born with a slow mind. I have a woman who keeps me going & I am able to be inspired by her & then work on my blog putting new posts on & then have been checking my email to see posts I have missed too. I have put a few new posts on my blog & am trying to keep up with all the posts & reworking them to get others to read them more & more. Thanks for your comment which keeps me replying more & more.
        It has been great to read your posts & know what it must be like to take care of your kids that are disabled. I am 1 who has had like 6 different health problems during my life & work on all the remedies that I find in these books I get from the library that help me as I write them down along with adding anything that helps others too. This has been quite a challenge for me too.
