If . . . . Then

Do you remember back in high school or college when you learned about "If . . .Then" statements? They went something life this:

"If gravity is a constant force, then when I drop an apple from waist height, it will fall to the ground."

OK, that was pretty obvious. But somewhere along the line, we, or at least I, began believe statements that weren't so obvious.

"If you wish upon a star and don't tell, then your wish will come true."

"Premise: Good things happen to good people, and bad things happen to bad people.
If I live a good life, then bad things won't happen to me."

I think we all know that isn't true, no matter how much we want it to be true!

I bring this up because I am here due to the urging of a dear friend of mine, known to all of you as Juliet610. We worked at the same school for five years; she as the speech therapist, me as a teacher. We stayed in contact since she moved on, and because she raved about the wonderful people here, I joined this site JUST for the Blogging.

I love her like a sister, and don't understand why so many bad things have happened to such a good woman. But I want to be another bridge between her Blogging friends and her "flesh and bone" friends (in addition to Jason) and provide whatever strength and support we can.

I hope you will welcome me in my own right, as well as being Julie's friend. She has told me time and time again that there are no warmer people on this planet than those here in Blog land. I look forward to getting to know you.

"If you like Julz, then you'll like me?"

Remember the past but do not dwell there.
Face the future where all our hopes stand.

There are many warm and caring folk in blogville. I wandered across J&J recently and have been moved by their experience, love for each other and the spirit each has. YOU are very welcome in this place my friend just because you're here and reach out. Enjoy and explore yourself and others! There is a lot of heart and soul shared here. The blogging really is the best part.
