I can’t believe it. The “Be the Next Beliefnet Blogger” contest ends today. I’ve blogged every day for 31 days straight. I wasn’t sure I had it in me. But the “they” in “they say” say it just takes 21 days to develop a habit … .
I’ve had great fun telling stories and (hopefully!) entertaining you, my readers, in the process.
And now, some famous last words … .
– Yesterday I was bemoaning the fact that we had to leave Florida following such a wonderful vacation. “If only I could have one more day here,” I thought, as we waited in the airport for the plane. As life would have it, there was a problem on the plane and we ended up having to stay one more night in Florida. More pool time, a chance to discover West Palm Beach a little… .
God really does listen sometimes.
– As wonderful as the vacation was, however, I missed my garden rather a lot while we were gone. What’s more, I was concerned that the combination of severe heat and lack of rain would kill everything. To my delight that was not the case. After dropping off our suitcases and getting squared away at home today, we headed out to the garden where I was greeted by peppers, tomatoes and cantaloupes.
So, whaddya think of my melons?
– Finally, one serious note. To the contest sponsors, judges, my readers and those who encouraged me to participate: Thank you. The opportunity to share tales (all true) styled to make you smile has been a thrill. Occasionally it was a challenge, too. But, ultimately, I was inspired and being part of this venture has made me a better observer, thinker and writer. I have an even greater appreciation for life around me now and I have, indeed, developed the blogging habit.
No doubt about it. With God, all things are possible.
