Learning To Fly



This is my first post, and have Dawn Edmonson from the The Feathered Nest to thank for its creation. I am humbled as Dawn has given freely her encouragement, calm mentoring, gentle funny friendship, and sweet true southern hospitality to me; a kindred spirit she has never met in person (not yet anyway). I am so grateful Dawn, and when we do finally meet, I may never stop hugging you dear one. Starting a blog is exciting and scary. I have much to learn, and look forward to the journey, wondering what it may bring.




I am a baby bird learning to fly.

I will probably come back to the nest now and again as I get stronger,,,,,and one day, I will surely take another under my wings, and pay it forward.

Hi Marcie! Your banner is absolutely beautiful! I'm looking forward to seeing more from you. I'm pretty new at this too, but I've already found how wonderful all these women are. It's a great community. And if it makes you feel better, I think most of us are scared about starting a blog. So you're in good company!

Welcome!
