I love parties and we at LDS Writers Blogck have plenty of reason to celebrate. Some of us are having an anniversary this week. I posted my first blog on April 26, 2006. There are others in our group that joined us in the beginning. C.L. Beck wrote the first blog on April 21. Heather, she isn’t with us any longer, wrote her piece on the 24, Darvell posted on the 25, Nichole on the 27, Danyelle, and W. L. Elliott who aren’t with us any longer posted on the 28, G. Ellen on May 1, G. Parker on the 3, and Karen on the 7. Keith has to wait a couple of months to party because he didn’t post his first blog until June 24. We were all anxious to have him join our group, and in June, we will have another celebration.
Did you know that one year is a paper anniversary? That is really fitting since all of us use lots of paper. I wonder if that means someone has to send me some paper. A two-year anniversary is cotton, followed by leather, linen, wood, bronze, copper, and tin.
The birthstone for April is diamonds. I like that concept. The zodiac stone for April 26 is emerald. Another good thought. The flowers for the month are dahlia, and sweet pea. There is a separate list of assignment according to the day of the week of your birth. My day to post is always on Wednesday, which means Cat’s eye (Chatoyant Chrysoberyl). I wonder what that means.
In the book “Secret Language of Birthdays”, it says, “The Day of the cultivator”. I think I’ll pick, and choose the things I like. Having new ideas and implementing them is only the beginning as far as April 26 people are concerned. April 26 people have stamina for the long haul. Having begun an effort, they will keep moving ahead day after day, week after week, and year after year in the same direction.” I think I’ll stop there. Unless you read the book, you’ll never know what else lies in story for people born on April 26.
If C. L. Beck were writing this she’d probably write a song, but I’m not going to try that. Is this blog about writing? Sure, I’m writing this aren’t I?
