And here we have the Birthday Girl gift tags for July through December. Click the PNG file (bottom of the two) if you want highest quality, but choose the JPEG file if space is an issue, such as on an older computer or flash drive.
I've had quite an awakening since I returned to blogging a little over a month ago. It seems to me that many bloggers are hugely talented -- much more so than when I "left" five years ago. I'm humbled by the wit, writing skills, and by the very lives and strength of so many bloggers.
In fact, I have been so impressed, going from blog to blog (and constantly finding new blogs on their sidebars), that I almost haven't been able to post. I can barely choke out a post, and mine seem dull and stilted compared to the gems of writing and thought I encounter. I used to be carefree when posting, dearies, and wrote anything that came into my head. It was never a labor! And it was always such fun.
But now, I'm full of anxiety. That's not how I wish to be, however! I don't compare others against each other, or look meanly at the efforts of others. Why am I bending such an unkind eye on my own little efforts?
I do know I am happy to have found so many blogs that enrich my life, even though we are far apart in miles and experiences, and connect only through words.
