Dearest Button another beautiful comment sitting in the pending folder. It is beginning to become my enemy. he he I think you can only accumulate so many comments and then they get thrown by the hair of their head into this pending folder. Thank you for your kind congratulations, I really appreciate it and I am hoping that people will begin to submit work to Peter for review. Sending you again, my love and appreciation, Love Honeybun xoxoxoxoxo
Thank you so much Peter for having me on your site, what a blessing an honor for me. Thank you for this publication and my first ever published work. I will always be grateful. Hugs, Joni
That is a wonderful photograph, Joni, and it would have to be this beautiful to be placed next to your words! Another vivid and brilliant piece, you always capture me! 🥰💗
Oh Tiffany thank you with all my heart for this very gracious comment. You are so kind as I know you are busy to not only read me but send such a beautiful message. It has been held hostage in the ominous pending folder. It successfully eats my comments up. Just kidding but I do think it only allows you so many comments and then it must automatically shot them into this folder. Thank you Tiffany for being so wonderful. Sending you lots of my love sweetie xoxoxoxoxoxo
Your writing is spice and sugar, Joni. There’s so much to be discovered and appreciated. Sparks of excitement. Congratulations! 🙂
