** Friday Night Announcements **

** I've made the decision to attempt to respond to everyone's comments via e-mail. (I realize I've said this before, but hopefully I will follow through this time!) After my day or two of "commenting like crazy", an idea came to me. I want to make it as easy as possible for anyone who takes the time to leave a comment for me, to see if I have acknowledged them! Because, how can we all remember where we left comments? And THEN, go back to those blogs to see if our scathingly brilliant comments received a comment back from the blog owner?! Too much time! Too crazy! And none of us need any of that, do we? SO, I'm definitely NOT discouraging leaving comments. No, please do! I read every one of them and they...and you....all mean so much to me. This way, you just won't have to stop back by unless you want to read something new, etc.

** I stumbled across another (new to me) blog this evening.  Here is the blog of Lynda Schab's "On the Write Track".  She has many publishing credits, and also provides links to various writing sites. Those of you who are interested in Christian writing, she has links for those, too. She is having a 12 Books of Christmas Contest/give-away, beginning this coming Monday! I'm definitely not one to rush Christmas, and reading about this contest didn't make me feel that way whatsoever. It just perked me up and made me happy! More books! More books! Oh and guess what? She has the books background that I had until I recently changed to my autumn leaves. SO, she must be a wonderful gal, don't you think?

** I heard absolutely no news concerning my sister today, so that tells me she must be okay. I'll definitely call tomorrow to see what the latest information is. Thanks for all your kind comments and e-mails. I so appreciate all of you.

** Have a wonderful, blissful weekend!

  2. My reply-to-comments policy is that I reply if the commenter has asked a question or raised a specific point that needs further discussion. It works for me. Wishing you a brilliant day :)

  5. hope your sister is on the mend. It's difficult when you live far family and things pop up. You do the best you can. I applaud you re your effort to contact people who comment on your blog. I think we need to hire a time management person to help with this issue of maintaining contact with other bloggers.. I feel bad as I can't keep up making contact with bloggers.Have a good weekend. Rose

  6. Hi Becky - behind on my blog reading. I'm sorry to hear about your sister. Hope all is well, you'll (both) be in my thoughts and prayers.

    I can barely keep up reading blogs much less commenting. I have no idea how you do it.
