Happy 100!

It is official. I have joined the club. Along with New Year 2008 I can celebrate my 100th post!

One hundred entries of my life, some sad, some ranting and raving, some longing and painful, many happy ~ read by friends and family.
I enjoy being a part of this new family ~ you, my bloggy friends who read about my life, whose lives touch me and I enjoy reading about, who care enough to stop by and share a virtual moment or two, who come to visit me often and leave me with comforting and encouraging thoughts, helpful hints or opinions. I appreciate each and every one of you and have learned a lot from you and your own blog writing.

Earning the top slot of my Resolution list this year, after some toggling with the more normal and very boring promises one makes at the start of a new year, is the promise to myself to become a better writer ~ more learned, more expressive. I have always had a passion for reading and writing, and I am going to devote a part of each day in this new year to enhancing that part of myself, to strengthening and nurturing the ability to write the words I know are inside my soul. Hey, maybe it will take the place of my chocolate fix each day...yeah, I don't think so either.

Did you make any out-of-the-ordinary resolutions for yourself this year?

Congratulations! I reached 100 a couple months ago and I was shocked that I had 100 posts worth of things to say.

My new years resolution is simply to stop leaving my house in my pajamas so that's not too unusual or inspiring. It's actually kind of pathetic, but hopefully by setting my standards low I will have success.

I am sorry I haven't been around here much, but I admit that it made me all warm and fuzzy to have been missed. :) Happy New year to you my friend!

I stopped making new year resolutions a long time ago. I find that resolutions can be made all year through. Nevertheless, every year I hope that it brings a lot of positive and happy things as life is hard enough, :)

Congrats! I just passed it to, but totally forgot about it :)

Love your resolution! Good luck with it (not that you need it... :))

Happy 100! I don't remember how I stumbled my way here, but I'm sure glad I did. I look forward to the next 100...

As far as resolutions, I didn't make any. I'm not that kinda girl. Besides, trying to give up my chocolate addiction would mean first having to admit I have an addiction, no? And that, I am not yet ready to do. :) Oh well... I try to stick with the dark chocolate, which I'm told is healthier.

Happy 2008. :)

Joy--you must have very cool PJs. I wouldn't be caught dead out of the house in any ofmy ole' jamies. Hehe. Like that resolution. That made me smile. Definitely very unusual.
