I started this blog back in March of 2008. It was a way for me to let my creative writing, my thoughts and whatever else I wanted out into the world. Little did I know this blog would give something to me. It gave me friendships. You may think, well bloggers are not real friends. They are just online friendships. That is where I will have to disagree with you whole heartedly.

On June 18, 2008 I posted “Oh Yes I Did!” and a woman by the name of Joy made a comment on the post. I think I wandered onto her blog first but on this day a friendship was started. A friendship which has grown for 5 years. I got to know her family and she mine.

Today is a sad day because after a long, hard fight with Chronic Myelogenous Leukemia she has passed away. I will miss our back and forth football jabs and I will miss seeing her posts on Facebook. Most of all I will just miss her.

This ones for you Joy. I’ll wear this hat when my Boys play the Vikings this year. Don’t forget we left a hole in our stadium so God could watch his team. I’m sure he’ll let you peek in on yours as well.


Love ya forever my friend.

  1. Oh no! I’m so sorry. This is heartbreaking news.
    I’m so glad you did become close with Joy. I recently got back into blogging, and Joy is still in my stats as one of the top commenters. I just can’t believe she is gone.
