The Best Followers

I’ve had a rough week or so. Yes, the move was stressful. What also bothered me was that I didn’t have the time to write my blog posts and had to reblog older posts. By older, I mean from July, not too long ago. I originally thought I would pepper in some reblogs after I had been doing this for a year, not just a few months. I apologize for that.

What amazed me is that you people still reread the old reblogs and responded. Most of you still stuck with me and you’re still here. I know I’m not the best writer, but apparently I put out interesting enough stuff to keep you reading. This really pleases me and I’m very grateful to all of you for still reading.

Almost all of the comments and messages from you guys are positive and supportive. I’ve let you into my life and you’ve responded with empathy, love, support, laughter, and whatever other emoji they let us use. I am honored to have found you and extremely happy that you found me. I will continue to try to give you a product that intrigues you and hopefully gives you a better day. I know it makes my day better.

I’ll finish this blog with a joke that a wonderful lady told me. Some of you may have heard it, but here it goes anyway.

Forrest Gump went to heaven and met St. Peter at the Pearly Gates.

ST PETER: Well, Forrest, to get in you have to answer some questions.


ST PETER: What two days of the week start with the letter “T?”

FORREST: Today and Tomorrow.

ST PETER: Um, ok, not what we were looking for, but still correct. Next question is, how many seconds are there in a year?

FORREST: Twelve.

ST PETER: Twelve?

FORREST: Yeah. January 2nd, February 2nd, March…

ST PETER: Ok, ok. Last question is, what is God’s name?


ST PETER: Andy? Where did you get that name from?

FORREST: Momma used to sing to me when I was little. She would sing, Andy walks with me, Andy he talks with me…

ST PETER: Just come in.

I hope you enjoyed the joke. When she told it to me, she was very weak because she’s suffering through stage 4 cancer. I just appreciated that she could take the time to tell me a joke with all the suffering she’s going through.

There’s a valuable lesson for life in all of that. Even when it’s dark, there’s still room for humor.
