Hello…I'm Back

Hi Everyone,

I know it’s been a while since I’ve made a blog post. The road’s been a bumpy one the past few months, but I’m back. Life is a series of returns 😉


/ Drawing by Shel Silverstein /


I have a Band-Aid on my finger,
One on my knee, and one on my nose,
One on my heel, and two on my shoulder,
Three on my elbow, and nine on my toes.
Two on my wrist, and one on my ankle,
One on my chin, and one on my thigh,
Four on my belly, and five on my bottom,
One on my forehead, and one on my eye.
One on my neck, and in case I might need ’em
I have a box full of thirty-five more.
But oh! I do think it’s sort of a pity
I don’t have a cut or a sore!

    Welcome back Michele!!! We are so glad to have you back and missed your blogs. And who says that band-aids aren’t a fashion statement? I think you look beautiful as always. 🙂

  2. Hi Tricia,
    Thanks for the comment and a good laugh! I’m getting my purple polka-dotted band-aids out right now, one for my right elbow and one for my left big toe. A new fashion trend :-0

    Hi Michele! I’m so happy to get an e-mail from you!!!!!!!!!! I’m so sorry about the “bumps” that you have experienced. But here you are returning………It’s so funny because I thought of you a few days ago. I was wondering where and how you were. I had been hoping to receive a new article written by you. And then puff…..I saw your e-mail and couldn’t wait to read what you wrote. Your writings are always so insightful. They bring me to a magical place where all my inner beliefs and thoughts are shared with people like yourself. There is this stick similar to chapstick that is for children. It’s called a boo boo stick or something along the lines of that. You put in on your sores, scrapes, cuts, or anything that hurts. It makes it feel better or go away. Anyways, wish I had one for you:) Keep returning, it doesn’t matter how many times you leave. Thank you for your beautiful writings and I wish you well, blessings. Christine

  4. Hi Christine,
    Hey, it’s great to hear from you. I miss you too. Blog posts are only a piece of the pie. It’s what other people add — like you — that makes it a whole pie for everyone to enjoy. I miss your insightful thoughts, and the good energy you bring. Oh, and thanks for the boo boo stick. 😉
