I never really wanted to be a blogger but I am so glad I became one. It never fails to amaze me how much encouragement I receive from my blogging friends. And one of the world's greatest encouragers is my blogging friend Loren who is celebrating her birthday today. This is my birthday wish for her.

                                                 A BIRTHDAY WISH

I do not wish you joy without a sorrow,
  Nor endless day without the healing dark,
Nor brilliant sun without the restful shadow,
  Nor tides that never turn against your bark.

I wish you love, and strength, and faith, and wisdom,
  Goods, gold enough to help some needy one.
I wish you songs, but also blessed silence,
  And God's sweet peace when every day is done.
                                                Dorothy Nell McDonald

I agree with you Clif about our blogging community. They are such an encouragement to me too, including your wife Charlotte.

Thanks for sharing that birthday wish for Loren. I think that's my blogging friend Loren too. :) She is special!

It's kind of cool that you blog Clif. You are one of the few husbands who gets this blogging stuff. LOL.

I think this is one of the best parts of blogging is being able to reach out virtually and "be there" for each other when we need it the most.

I know Loren will be deeply touched by your loving words for her birthday today.

Love and Hugs ~ Kat
