LV's Achievement/ Pink Saturday

Pink Saturdays are always special, but today's is an unbelievable, remarkable occasion for me.  

Back in April,2009 I hardly knew what a blog was let alone a post.  It took me awhile, but finally succeeded in getting one published. It has been one of the best things I have participated in.  At my age, you need to keep your mind as active as possible.  Blogging has done that and allowed me to meet so many wonderful, caring people. This is my 1000th post today.  What better way to celebrate it than on Pink Saturday.You just never know what you can do unless you try. Trust me, I have had my trying times, but it has been worth it. However,  I was not sure if I could continue when blogger decided to make so many new guidelines. With all your support, help and encouragement, I persevered and will have four years in April.

You reached out to me and made me feel so welcome into your worlds. I will never meet you personally, but it as been a joy being in your blog homes all this time.  I truly have been blessed by your visits ad comments.

It is hard to believe that my last Pink Saturday had the most viewers for the day. With hundreds of participates, it was a shock and a great honor. I was so pleased that you took the time for a peek. Thanks to all of you that made this possible. It meant a lot to me.

Beverly would love having you drop by and say hello.

Hello, Miss LV! This is my very first visit to your blog. Even though I've been blogging for nearly 3 years, I joined Pink Saturday for the first time this week. It is a pleasure to "meet" you as you celebrate your 1000th post and nearly four years of blogging! I read your sidebar, and it gave me one of the biggest smiles of my entire week. I like a woman who does "what she wants when she wants it"!!! Happy 1000 Posts, and I wish you a very Happy Valentine's Day!

Charlotte said...

I feel the same way about blogging. My hubby started blogging over a year before I did and I wasn't the least bit interested in doing it. I didn't know what I was missing. I finally did start and never looked back. That was about 5 years ago. I was only 71 then. Now I'm 76. Where did those years go? Thanks for the nice comments you made about my dolls.

Kathy said...

Congratulations on your milestone - It has been a great pleasure sharing with you over the years - I always love it when you stop by. I hope you have a blessed weekend, and I'll save a Nutella Croissant for you!

1000th posts ! Amazing. You and I

are age buddies. I just turnes 71.

So we are nt too far apart to enjoy the past things in our lives and the moments of now. I have

participated on your blogs.

I have a sister in-law who is 90

years young. Pardon. I should say young right. So we are blessed to do

what we do. Many more blogs to come

for you. It is the best thing. Blog

and let the gingers do the walking.

It helps those fingers from going

stiff on us.

God Bless you Dear lady.

Glad I met you across the miles. Like

everyone has. You have been a

blessing to us as well you know. It

works both ways.
