On this day in 2006...

Today is the anniversary of when I started my blog, and I wanted to write something meningful to thank my friends for being there for me through all the hard times; losing my sight, losing my Oriental cat, Myskanco "Chance" Silva flame, and all the other losses. And through all the happy times too. But I've been trying to do it for more than half an hour so far, and I just can't find the words. So, instead, I'll say this: On this day in 2006, I started this blog. In that time I've made a lot of friends. Some of them have turned out not to be who I thought they were; some have turned out to be wonderful friends.

To those who turned out not to be who I thought they were: lies and deception get you nowhere in life, and I can only hope you will some day learn the error of your ways, and in doing so that you will turn over a new leaf and - perhaps - find it in yourself to be the person I thought you were.

To those who turned out to be wonderful friends: Thank you! Thank you for being there for me when I needed a friend, and for... Well, for being you!

Happy Anniversary, Tori! I've enjoyed reading about your life since we've met. The hard parts (such as your losses) were hard to read, but you're a very strong person and you keep plugging forward. I like that in a person.

And you're welcome. :) *hugs*

Happy Anniversary!!

A lot has happened in those 5 years! And yes, some good and some bad and some... just difficult.

I hope you find the next 5 years to hold more good than bad!

Happy Anniversary, Tori! I'm so glad we've "met"!

We haven't known each other all that long, but I am glad I found you thru Iggy. :)

You made me go look. I started my blog June 10, 2006. So, we were pretty close together on the time we started blogging. ;)

People who lie and deceive are not friends and never really were.

I just checked mine and I started blogging in March of 2006. I deleted a lot of entries one time due to some problems with some people in my life, but that's been a few years now.

Happy belated anniversary to you too then! :)
