A Five Year Blogaversary and a Giveaway

Today marks five years that I officially began writing this blog. I started it because my friend Barbara talked me into it! I dedicated the blog to my middle's little dog Tinkerbell that was ill with liver cancer. She passed away on May 26, 2010. It was a sad time, the previous Saturday before her death I lost a good but estranged friend Michelle. She was 47 and passed away suddenly from a massive heart attack. I did not know then that four short months later my friend and mentor from Princess House, Jonel would also pass away, at age 47 from a massive heart attack. Sadness. It slaps us like a brutal, cold wind on a wintery day.I started blogging about more personal things, my phamily more often than anything and occasionally striking out at various illnesses, diseases, and other topics dear to me. I like to laugh, I find humor can save us from just about any situation that is hard to understand. Then there is my faith. without it, I would be, empty.

Romans 8:38-39 For I am sure that neither death nor life, nor angels nor rulers, nor things present nor things to come, nor powers, nor height nor depth, nor anything else in all creation, will be able to separate us from the love of God in Christ Jesus our Lord.

 I am feeling sad today too. I was cleaning the garage with my hubby and Jeremy let his three dogs out! The two bigger ones tripped me up and I was hurting, You know when you fall and try to catch yourself, stop yourself ! Then I signed on to my Face Book account. Sadness. I lost my precious cousin Audrey today. We had so much fun visiting at FB and her loss saddened me tremendously. I hope you will pray for her phamily. They are going to be so lost without her. If you have a moment you may go to my FB page Anne Kocman Robinson and read my post.
I am very blessed..The reason I had originally wanted to post today  because it is my blogaversary and I am going to have a giveaway! Just a few surprises so please just leave a comment and I will draw the winner on Sunday November 9th after I return home from Kansas. I will put together a nice giveaway so please come join me.

It is true for me too, without my faith I would be empty. Happy Blogaversary. I hope you will find some joyful moments this week, during the sad times, and heal from that fall.
