Once Upon a Time….


Comment Oops

March 30, 2019

Marlene, I love this post, that is straight from the heart.

I had to reblog. I do love your self expression! I can relate, I was never a child either.


I have a hard time with certain blogs I visit. I also have difficulty with groups I belong to when it comes to discussing childhood activities.

I was never really a child. I sometimes think I was born old in a tiny body. Well, not so tiny, actually. Does 13 pounds qualify as an infant?

    1. LIz, you are indeed lucky. Sometimes, often, being lucky changes everything, and to know and understand that you are lucky, says to me, that you came from a very loving family. Karen πŸ™‚

  3. I just don’t have words to thank you for your kind comment and the re-blog of my post. I’m delighted and amazed. You have touched my heart and I so appreciate that I’m not alone in this. I’m trying to read as many newer to me blogs as I can and get out of my comfort zone. Expanding my bubble so to speak. You are so kind and it’s much appreciated. See, I gush too much too. But I always mean it. Thank you. Marlene

    1. Marlene, no, you don’t gush too much at all. People need feelings from the heart expressed about how we admire, care about, and truly love beautiful written works and the people who wrote them. You are a beautiful person in all regards. I am fortunate to have you as my friend. Karen πŸ™‚

    1. KC, absolutely and that is what I am trying to do now. I am taking off Saturdays and Sundays to enjoy family and friends, instead of sitting at my laptop 7 days a week. Karen πŸ™‚
