My friend Darlene started her blog and asked me to check it out. She had already established friendships prior by commenting, and having been introduced to this "bloggie world" by her little sister Denise. I have to admit, seeing the blog for the first time and how it all worked seemed odd, and I felt as if I was intruding, eavesdropping on someone's conversation, or picking up someone's notes and reading them. It did not feel comfortable and I would get off the screen quickly, as if I it was something I shouldn't be doing.... obviously, I got over it.

As time went on, I witnessed the growth in the women who volunteered to do the mirror meditation. And also the encouragement, caring, positive feed back on a daily basis. I find it all so amazing!

In the last month I have gone from blog to blog. I am deeply touched and it has brought tears to my eyes to see the community of posts sharing Darlene and Marks plight and how it has affected them.

I want to thank you from the bottom of my heart, for being there for our friend. It means so very much to me. Please continue to pray, and meditate positive thoughts for Darlene and her family through this time.


  1. i've been following mark's story and have been hoping for recovery and healing. she is lucky to have you through this difficult journey.

  2. Thank YOU! for coming to my Blog and praying for my little angel! I'm so GLAD Darlene has you close by! That family will be in my prayers now to eternity!!! I love that picture, it's beauty full!!! xo, sweet dreams

  3. Yes, I found Darlene through another blog, and this is what happens! its like a snowball effect! and through Darlene I found you, who next I wonder! but I find it to be a great community, and everyone is rooting for Mark and his family, it touched me very deeply.

  4. I felt the same as you when I first started my own blog, too. I found it especially difficult to start commenting on other people's blogs - like I was interrupting an on-going conversation, but I'm getting better at it nowadays! ;)
    I'm so glad to know that Darlene has someone like you close by, and to have found you both! :)
    She & her family will always be in my thoughts & prayers over here in England.
    I love the photo, by the way!

  5. I felt just the same when I first found blogging. One link leads to another and another. I still haven't really found my own blogging voice, but it will come.

    It's nice to know that Darlene has such a loyal and supportive friend close by. She's a gem and it sounds like you are too.

  6. Hello....welcome to the blogging community. I've been so touched and moved by Darlene's story and I have my mom's church and my brother's church praying for Mark, as well as mine.

    I look forward to "seeing" you around! Welcome Again!

  7. Oh I am dancing for every success and for quick healing.

    Glad you are traveling about blog land.

    beautiful poem too.
