Ramblings from a would be writer


A good friend of mine has a blog.  I hate to log into things, so I started leaving comments signed, DAF.  I told her I would always be her Dear Anonymous Friend. Thus, the name of this blog.

I love honesty and sometimes I am too honest.  I am human, what can I say?

I have had a short story published and it was one of the highlights of my life.

A wife, a mother of two beautiful daughters and a grandmother of a precious grandson and granddaughter, I am not too young, except at heart.

I love our Lord and want to be a reflection of His grace and glory in me.

I hope you enjoy my blog, and I thank you for stopping by.

Feel free to leave a comment or two, and know that I appreciate your time.  Enjoy, it’s nice to meet you, DAF

  1. Hi there DAF,
    Thanks for stopping by my blog today. It’s always nice to see new faces, especially the ones who have a feel for where I am in my journey. Congrats to you for getting your story published! Hopefully some day I’ll get to that point… for now I’m just tapping away on the keys. I look forward to reading more of your work. 🙂

  2. Yours is my first comment! Thank you so much for stopping by and commenting. It’s been several years since my story was published and it is also my dream that it will happen again. I enjoy your blog, and am looking forward to seeing more. Thanks!

  3. I love the notion of a work in progress. I very much feel that way too. The minute you think you have one area licked, along comes another one that needs work! Looking forward to reading more.

  4. thanks so much for checking out my blog. It is a work in progress, as am I. I appreciate you reading my blog and also for leaving a comment. Again, thanks!

    Since I still don’t know what I want to be when I grow up, I can relate to being a work in progress. I don’t know how you found my blog, but I’m glad you did, because now I have found you. Think I’ll keep you.

  6. you are just too sweet. I found your blog recently while looking comments and blogs of others. Can’t even remember how. the name of your blog caught my eye, as we lived in CA for 27 years. At one point when my husband was considering a job transfer I told him that was great as long as it was east of the Mississippi. The east coast to me is the best place in the world. I am glad I stumbled upon your blog and I am enjoying reading it and getting to know you via your posts. Thanks!

  7. How lovely to “meet” you, and find your blog. I had a really wonderful time reading your posts this morning, thank you 🙂

  8. Nice to meet you also! Thanks for stopping by, I am glad you enjoyed my posts. DAF

    To my DAF,
    Thirty-three years ago I opened the door of my home to find my dearest friend standing there! We sipped tea, shared from the heart, raised our families – and dreamed. Congratulations on your new blog! Words and dreams. May God richly bless each and every one. Thank you for sharing your journey.

    Always and Forever,
    Susie ~
