This year, in March, the world has put on hold. COVID-19 has caused a huge pause in our everyday life. We are on social distancing. Families and friends are separated unless they live in the same household, of course. Instead of strengthening our connections, friendships, and bonds, the dangerous virus forces us to separate.
We can’t meet, we can’t go shopping, hang out in the sun, enjoy spring… We cannot go to church, and even though the strict instruction to stay at home is not followed by far too many people… and the unexplainable grocery-hoarding some people are practicing make that time for the reasonable people very difficult.
But soon, it will be Easter, and I am not going to let this just fall under the table. I will be home, yes…. I will be all by myself, yes… but I will remember the basics of this holiday. That’s how I grew up. I will remember, I will pray, and I will be grateful for the man who sacrificed Himself on the cross – for me… for all of us.
New beginnings are often disguised as painful endings.
– Lao Tzu
Thank you all, authors, readers, followers, visitors, and friends, for making blogging and writing to me an exciting and thrilling adventure, for being a part of my life and for supporting and encouraging me!
Let me wish you and your loved ones now
A successful, exciting, thrilling, enjoyable, positive and amazing NewYear!
Many of my friends, followers, relatives and readers, are amazing and wonderful Moms. May 12 is their day of celebration and happiness. A day where we tell our Moms ‘Thank You’, and we’re happy you’re in our life.
For our 2019 Mother’s Day I wish all Mom’s out there:
But I don’t want to forget the readers, relatives, followers and friends who are not a human baby Mom – but a fur baby Mom. They also worry for their ‘boys & girls’ and take care of them.

March 11, 2015 my first blog post, “Welcome to the Writer’s Treasure Chest” was published. This was exactly 9 months ago. Since then this blog has made far better progress than I ever had dared to hope.

This blog has made significant progress. In the meantime I could celebrate by far over 200 followers, 1,000 likes, over 8,000 views, 2 blog awards and December 9, 2015 I got this:
Each visit is making me happy, each comment is making me proud and each re-blog is a huge honor for me!
