First Post Challenge

I am taking up Edwina's challenge today. It is a timely request and will help me break my writers block.

Here it is: A Special Place in Heaven

It was an introductory essay - why I was starting, and a bit about who I was.

This post reminds me how how far I have come, how much has changed in the past seven years, and how much has stayed the same.

My husband did retire a year after this post was written.

So did I three years later.

That play did go on, and it was wonderful.

And my blog has been a way for me to stay in touch with others and myself.

That trip to Florence was amazing.

And yes, I still believe that there should be a special place in Heaven for teachers.

My life is still clickety clacking down the straight line track.

It came apart this year.

It is coming together again.

And so it goes.

Anyone who wants to join this first post challenge should - I nominate all and sundry!

Here are the rules:

Copy-paste, link, pingback or whatever way you want to, your first post.

State what type of post that was. E.G. Introduction, Story, Poem

Explain why that was your first post.

Nominate 5 other bloggers. Five because I know the pain of opening a lot of tabs at once.

    1. Thank you...are you going to play? (I went and read your first post ever ...) You should play!

    2. I wanted to nominate you Wendy but was not sure what you were doing about your blog at the moment. I would love it if you had a go too :-

  2. That was a wonderful first post, and yes it is good to see how things change or evolve over time. Here's to the next 7 years! :-)

  3. Teachers definitely should have a special place in heaven. It's good sometimes to look back so that we can appreciate how far we've come :) Keep on clickety clacking!
