Dear Friends, I hope you have had a good week. This week has been an exciting week at Ivory Spring in that we passed the 1,000,000 mark in page views on this blog! I want to thank you all for your visits and comments, and more importantly, your encouragement over the years!
I have enjoyed meeting all of you, and having you as friends! So many of you have become fixtures in my life. I start worrying about you if I don’t hear from you for a few days.
Many of you write me in the middle of the night just to share a word of encouragement – words cannot express how much I appreciate those middle of the night emails when I am up alone working away. Many of you write to share prayer requests – I feel honored that you entrust me with your prayer requests. Many of you just write and share with me your life story – I love reading your stories! Many of you send pictures of your work – you know I just absolutely love to see what you are working on.
So many things have happened since I started my blog. I became a mother, and on top of that, I became a full-fledged quilt designer. Many of you have been so dear and sweet toward me almost from the very beginning, and have seen my life morph into a chaotically busy mess. My “bloggy” inner circle continues to expand as I got to know more and more of you. I want to thank all of you for being a part of my life! I count you as God’s blessings in my life! Again, THANK YOU!
