Time Flies When You're Having Fun!

Well, I must be having a blast, then! It's my 2nd Anniversary
today, Friday the 12th! I have met incredible people
who I consider my friends all over the world. Men and women
who have changed my life forever. There certainly is a
connection between us, isn't there? Non-bloggers just do
not understand, do they! LOL.
So, thank you so much for taking time to chat with me
every day. We've laughed and cried together and
I appreciate all of you! Thanks, especially for your
encouragement to me in raising triplet sons with autism.
Yes, it's a tough thing to do but your sweet comments
and emails to me are so special! I also love learning
about you and sharing in your lives!
Thank you so very much!

  3. Happy Blogoversary!!! It's been a fun ride, hasn't it?

    (I recognize the bottom pic, but not the top one! heh-heh)

  4. Congratulations on your blogaversary! I never imagined what a wonderful world I was entering when I started a blog. It is such a great ride and I'm glad our bloggy paths have crossed. You inspire me each and every day and I look forward to many more...Jj

  5. And we all admire you, Betsy---and enjoy getting to know you also!!!! I love having a friend with the same name since there are so few of us out there!!!!

    Congrats on your Blogaversary!!! You are right in saying that non-bloggers do not understand. My best friend does not know why I love this so much!!!!


  6. Amen to all of that...I feel the same way and so glad I have connected with such a good woman as you! Have a good valentines weekend..come say hi :D

  7. Congratulations Betsy. Your blog is always such a calming place, even when you're posting the "bad". I'm sure it's not as easy as you make it look. My MIL always tells me to be a duck ~ calm on the surface even when you're paddling like heck underneath. I'm afraid I get my feathers ruffled quite often! LOL!
    Here's to another great year!

  8. Betsy. Thank you. I can say in absolute truthfulness : "it's been a pleasure".

  9. HAPPY anniversary! I can not believe it is only your second one, you strike me as such a very experienced blogger.;)
    To many more anniversaries to come.;))
    Have a lovely Friday as well,

  10. Congrats on the 2nd Anniversary -hope you have a great big celebration.
    And, you are so right about how non-bloggers simply don't get, don't comprehend, the friendships that begin and thrive via blogland!

  11. Happy Bloggoversary! I'm so glad you are here. I always enjoy my visits here.

  12. woo hoo congrats on number 2! time does fly and so glad yo have met you as well. got your email the other day...sorry, been a bit hectic. will drop one back this weekend. thanks for the prayers.

  13. Happy second bloggy year, Betsy! And hey! that bottom pic does look familiar ;)

  14. Congraulations on your 2nd blog anniversary. We have learned so much about what you go through and have truly enjoyed the things the boys do. You are a very special person.

    God bless.

    Love to visit...it is fun to meet new people all over the world but also stay connected with those that live 3 miles away!!!
    This is a wonderful place to "hang out!"
    Have a great weekend.

  16. Subby ~ haha..yes, remember that butterscoth craving??

  17. you have a way with words an images that i find so comforting . humorous and real . thank you for your special blog !

  18. You are a blessing to me! I'm so glad you started blogging and I consider it a privilege to view glimpses of your beautiful life.

  19. Happy Blog Birthday to You!

    When I talk with people who don't blog about my experiences of writing and reading others words of wisdom, their eyes quickly glaze over and I can tell they're not at all interested. They just don't get it!

  20. Happy Blogoversary! It's always fun to stop in here...you give off lots of shining light!
    Thank you and best wishes for another fantastic year.

  21. Awww, how lovely. Wel, the same can be said right back to you. You too have enriched our lives with all you share here and who you are. I am very glad I found you here. Here's to many more yours of mutual blogging and such, eh?

    And you are so right, non bloggers really don't get it, but then I don't get facebooking which they might be into. So, here's to a very very happy 2nd anniversary!! I can't believe you've only been at this for two year. Whoa.

  22. Betsy...it was because of your blog, I decided to blog! You were my inspiration. When my son was born this past September, one of the first things I did when I got home from the hospital was check your gorgeous blog. I always find a wonderful place to relax when I visit.

  23. Happy two years, Ms. Betsy! We are all inspired by you and if we give you even a fraction of that support and caring back ~ it's good!

  24. I'm the one that feels blessed to have this window into your life. You've met the challenges God has given you with grace and patience and your own special panache. You're an inspiration to me and I appreciate your willingness to share the good and not so good of your life. You've raised 4 extraordinary young men. Well done Mom!

    All that and you're an excellent blogger as well.

  25. Happy Anniversary, Betsy! You're a treasure!

  26. Happy Anniversary, Betsy! I always enjoy your posts because you are so bright and sunny...a breath of fresh air. And thank YOU for being so supportive when I started blogging. You are a dear "new" niece ; )

  27. Happy Anniversary dear Betsy! I love your blog and am so blessed that you share it. Your ups and downs are true inspirations. Hugs and lots of dark chocolate to you, dear friend! xoxo

  28. Congratulations, Betsy!

    I get tickeled everytime I hear about something your boys have done.

    Take care!

  38. Long list of comments, but I do agree - Betsy, you're an inspiration. I don't know whether I'm more amazed at your ability to mother your sons with such love and grace, or whether I'm more envious of your cookies! I do know I'm glad I found your blog and you invariably cheer me up and spur me on. Many happy returns!

  39. Congratulations.... What a wonderful two years you have shared with us.

    Wow, 2 years already? Whoa, crazy fast huh? It's been a pleasure to call you Girlfriend among my circle of friends. Wished we all lived closer for a party to celebrate!

  44. we love you so much!! happy anniversary!

  45. Betsy...your are one super mom.
    I count you among my personal heroines! It was just a year ago for me - I think it was actually last Saturday on Feb. 8- that I first stumbled into your sister's blog. I had never really stopped to read a personal blog before. That is when it all began for me. I read along for over a month before I ventured one of my own. I am so glad I found her & then YOU! Congratulations on two years!

  46. Wow! Happy anniversary! I'm so glad I met you. Whenever I see my broom I think of you. Seriously, and not in a bad way :)
    Remember that broom standing up trick? I keep meaning to try it on any given day but I never do. *sigh*

    Oh well. thanks for being you.


  47. Happy Blogoversary - you<re twice as old as I am - and I don,t get to say that too often!
