Every day, here in Wildflower Junction, we feel your love in the ways you show your devotion and loyalty. It’s humbling–and magical. Could it be that Felicia kissed the Blarney Stone? That’s entirely possible. We once caught her kissing Jasper, her mule, and baking him a carrot cake. God love her.
Whatever the magic is, we love seeing you every day and reading your comments, telling us your stories and sharing whatever is on your mind. In this often uncertain world, it’s sometimes difficult to locate a bit of cheer, but we do find it here and hope you do, too.
Thank you for spending part of your day with us, for reading our blogs and taking a few moments to comment and share your thoughts. Sometimes we fillies get bogged down with our deadlines, social media, marketing, and WRITING. We end up tired and burned out, but knowing we’re not alone makes a huge difference. We’re all cruising on a two-way street. You don’t know how often tears fill our eyes when one of you reveals how you’re hurting or alone and we pray you find relief.
This is one world and it’s the coming together of hearts–laughing and crying. For twelve and a half years, Petticoats & Pistols has been a gathering place of hearts. We’re all just people who share a love for reading, of history and the West. It’s a simple concept. No judgment, no censoring. Here, we can just “be.”
Blog sites routinely keep track of the number of times a person leaves a comment. For us, two people in particular stand out. One has written 1,234 comments. It’s pretty safe to say that she has been here from the first. Another runs a close second at 1,020 comments.
We think that’s pretty darned amazing.
So thank you for “being” with us and making us part of your day. More importantly, you’ve made us part of your family. Our hearts swell with gratitude, and we love you all dearly.
