12 Days of Thanksgiving, Day Four
I began blogging nearly two years ago in January 2007. I had spent numerous hours reading blogs and I was addicted. I decided I should try this blogging thing as well. So I did and "Don't Give Him Crackers" was born.
I didn't expect to develop friendships along the way. However, I have and it has been a great unexpected bonus.
The friendships I have made have been great, but it is the friendship that Hoss has made that warms my heart the most.
This past March I began blogging on Bluegrass Moms, a website run by our local newspaper. In April, Natalie moved to the area from out of state. She posted a message on the board stating she was new to town. She mentioned she had a son, nearly three years old.
Hmm, I have a son around the same age. I commented to her that we should have a play date. She agreed. Fast forward six months and the first play date occurs. Hoss and Daniel are now friends. They have been able to play several times and despite Hoss' silence on most occasions and their choices to often play with other kids around, they seem to be friends. Hoss talks about Daniel's cat, which we have never seen and Natalie reports Daniel draws pictures of him and "Hoss."
I'm so thankful for Hoss' friendship and I am thankful for mine as well!
