Edwin Way Teale once said:
The world’s favorite season is the spring. All things seem possible in May.
The month of May has monumental significance to me.
- Leo was born in the month of May.
- He came to me in October, and by his first birthday (during the month of May) the birth of a blog began.
That’s right – Groovy Goldendoodles™ is the brainchild of a Doodle named Leo.
Although Harley is a character all by himself, it was the two of them who inspired me to write and share (the best that I could) all the joy and laughs they created together.
When I started, I knew nothing about blogging.
That first year – I just wrote.
The second and third year I continued to write trying desperately to find my “niche.” By the end of year three I had a rhythm, I felt as if I had a beat to dance to. #sortof
But by year four, my muse was gone, and I struggled to write.
I never intended to quit, because “that” would have been like quitting on Leo. #nothappening
I just needed to know how to continue.
I’ve learned a great deal about myself these last eleven months and I cannot believe my favorite month of the year is back and I’m smiling.
I’m smiling for all the lessons learned, the courage found, the strength to continue, and most of all – the incredible memories.
This Friday marks Leo’s fifth birthday, and I plan to celebrate his life with a very special GIVEAWAY.
So please join us, its gonna be grand.
Gotta go now, I want to hear Harley tell Jax this story…
