My many thanks to Sally, who sponsors this day, she has allowed me to take lots of liberty with Blue Monday. Thanks Sally. So hop on over to Smiling Sally and see all the other blogger showing blue thingies today.
I was tempted to stop blogging or change my name so more people would come and they wouldn’t think I was just an old farm lady.
Well, I had the other life, 2 fashionable Boutiques, The Clothes Horse (It’s better to married to a clothes horse than an old nag), dressing up everyday, traveling to market in Dallas, New York, California, living what was considered the good life. But you know what, I wasn’t happy. One day I realized that life was too short to live just half way. So I moved to the beach house, got a divorce and starting look for a happier life. Don’t misunderstand, there were lots of good days and my ex is not a bad fellow, it was me. The best thing that came out of that marriage was my wonderful daughter, Tara.
Then one day along came this guy that liked everything I had never even thought about. Living in the country, raising goats, fishing, enjoying the outdoors and simply trying to take time to smell the roses. I fell in love with him.
We got married, have a beautiful home, 6 dogs, 5 cats, 10 ducks and about 50 goats .
I love my life and I am completely happy. I have friends and time to see them, I play bridge and bunko, take trips with Sharon and vacations with Roy. I have just about everything a lady could want.
Then I thought about why I blog…it was to meet people from all over and share my thoughts and ups and downs. Be a friend and support someone when they had a need and get the same in return. I have made some of the greatest friends and several of them said, the reason they started coming here was because of my blog name. So bloggers here I am, and I won’t try to fool you by changing my name or the things I write about. The old saying, If you have one good friend, you are blessed, well I have more than one and I am truly blessed.
The Purple Goat Lady is back and I will have a new look in a few days.
To my followers I thank you for helping me make my decision, you are the greatest.
Mr.Turkey is still here with Ms. Hen, I have a couple of sick goats and Roy is home from fishing. Life is good. The Lord has blessed me.
I am now a happy Blue Lady.
