To me, all of you are my penpals, this is what blogging means to me. We reach out and share our thoughts, emotions, cares, fears and joys.

I had a penpal when I was younger, she lived in Iowa and for the life of me, I cannot remember her name. Lydia from Writerquake had a penpal and she hopes to find her again. And I hope she does also.

But, I was thinking (god, help us all) that blogging was like having that penpal when I was younger. I may never meet any of you but I have enjoyed getting to know all of you. I have enjoyed every story, every point of view, every picture and all of the laughter.

Thank you for brightening my little corner of the world.

I totally agree. I had a pen pal when I was younger, too. My pen name was "Kit." (grin) I can't remember anything else, except it was a lot of fun.

Blogging is a lot of fun, too. I have met so many wonderful people here. ((hugs))

I had a penpal too, as an adult, her name was Linda and she lived in Birmingham England. We lost touch after we both had children. I would love to find her again someday...perhaps I will. I agree...blogging is a lot like having many penpals. I really enjoy it.

I never had a pen pall when I was younger. I am learning what I missed. Thank you for being my penpall now.

Beth, you look like a Kit, that name fits you perfectly :)
There are a lot of wonderful people in blogland, you and your family are at the top of the list.

Inchwormart, hi! Oh, it would be wonderful if you found Linda. I'm with you, I enjoy blogging too :)

MaryContrary, you may not have had one when you were younger but now you have tons of them :)
Thank YOU, for being my pen pal. I really enjoy all the things you share. You are a bright wonderful person :)

I never thought about it, but blogging is like having lots of pen pals. We have them all over the world now and that's the best part. If the whole world blogged and we learned about other cultures and lifestyles there would be no need for war.

Darlene, that's what I enjoy about you, you have beautiful insight! You are right, what a beautiful world this would be :)

It reminds me of the song by John Lennon "Imagine"

I said the same thing in an early post. I had a German pen pal; we lost touch after school. It would be great to hear from her again, but in the meantime, I now have many "pen" pals in the blog world, for whom I am very grateful!

Judy, great minds think alike :)
what's the name of the post you did, I'd like to read it.
I hope someday you reconnect with your German pen pal :)
