Welcome to my new blog!

Well I've done it! I'm a blogger now!

This past year has brought so many new things. Some wonderful some difficult but a blessing none the less.
My dear Mom passed away on February 20th. She had been living with heart failure and Parkinsons for sometime and she gave up her earthly body for a pair of wings. My sister, brother and I will miss her dearly but I know she is always close. She jumped off that hospital bed and straight into our hearts where she will always have a home.

I am working on developing an online store. I have always wanted to have my own resale shop. Those of you who know me know that The Good Will is my second home. LOL I love rescuing things from a life of no use on a shelf to a good home. Now I am taking it to the streets(or the Internet ).
I read in a Cottage Living magazine about a site called Make Mine Pink. What a blast that has been . I have become the new girl on the block with a bunch of lovely woman who are running on line stores with that Shabby Chic touch.
This a great community where excellence and customer service are not things of the past but the nature of the day. go ahead and check it out. To all my pinkettas HI!
To start my blog I wanted to post a poem I wrote for my 50th birthday and just say welcome. more to come soon.

Woman in Full Bloom
by Lilli Blue

20, 30,40,and 50
These are numbers not definitions
I define myself.
goddess, diva, or beam of light
I am spirit having a human holiday.
Tan blond, chestnut brown or auburn red
I am a rainbow and bring color to the world.
I don't need age defying make up
I defy age!
I believe a diamond is a stone
not a goal.
Men are our fathers, brothers ,friends and lovers
Not the question or the answer.
I am a healer
healing myself.
I am a passionate flame
igniting my own fulfillment.
I do not burn
I blaze!
I am deep wet kiss on a hot summer night.
I am not easily forgotten.
I am the sun, wind, moon, and stars.
I am worth your reach.
I won't walk behind you.
I will stand beside you.
I am not a flower
I am a woman in full bloom.

Well that's it for today. Bloom sweet ones into every good thing you ever dreamed.
Blessings, Lilli

Lilli, I am so happy you have a blog. When I first joined MMP it happened to me the exact same way it did for you. I opened up a magazine, saw the ad, ran to the phone and bought a LPB. You are a treasure to have as a pink sister and I look forward to getting to know you better. Good luck on your new blog and with your soon to be website.
