Hello, and welcome to my Guestbook!

I hope you enjoy your stay
enough to return again someday.
Don’t click off without fetching
a nugget of comfort or delight –
or perhaps even a sliver of insight. 
And just for you,
I made something sweet
to thank you for your visit.
Go ahead, grab a cookie,
it’ll only take a minute.
These gems were not
pulled from a box,
but mixed up by hand
with the best of ingredients
for creating something grand.
So, thank you again
for your precious time.
Your presence in my corner
has been absolutely sublime!

In Love & Friendship,
πŸ™‚ ❀️

        I like that! It is so YOU! Sweet. It is nice when one makes changes and others notice. tee hee. I have been busy on my blog changing here and there and still have more to do. I am having fun with it though. πŸ™‚

      2. Thanks and I just commented on your blog and love the new header and style! I’d like to make more changes, but so much to do and so little time! πŸ™‚

  1. When did you make this page? No matter, I love it!
    I hope you and your family are have a most blessed evening, Lauren!
    My prayers are with you and yours always! xo

    1. Earlier last week, Deb, just for the fun of it. I’ve always loved yours, so I finally did it, but I didn’t think anyone would notice it, so thank you! πŸ™‚ And thanks for your prayers! You are a sweetheart and the same to you, too, my friend! xo

    Just love your soft, gentle, kind and beautiful words of poetry, Lauren. I may not get to comment on each one, but I read them all and let your wonderful energy sink into my soul. Thank you for sharing your words and your friendship. Blessings to you, my friend. xoxo

    1. Aww, Angela, you are too kind, but I will admit your graceful, compassionate comment is a great start to my Friday! Thank you so much! I can “ditto” all and pass it back to you, too! Hugs and blessings to you, too~xoxo

    Lauren, I just saw this. How welcoming! How fitting in your lovely blog of words that paint such a gentle world. (((Hugs)))

  5. Wow, yet again you always bring wonderful inspiration through the beautiful haikus (my favourite), poems and other posts you put togther. May your creativity grow even more through your years!

    Thanks! The cookie was great πŸ™‚

    1. Aww…thanks, T! Your comment is so nice to come back to after having been sick for a few days…and I’m glad you enjoyed the cookies, too! I truly appreciate your most encouraging words and I hope you are well, too! πŸ™‚

    1. Hi J,

      Thanks so much for your message and your timing is perfect, as I’ve considered the same thing. I haven’t had as much time, lately, for blogging and have been overwhelmed with being behind. The decision hasn’t been made, yet, but still contemplating. Anyway, I hope you’re doing okay and just needing a little break, which is understandable…I’ll send you an email, too, but thanks again, and I also appreciate your continued blogging support! Hugs and blessings to you, as well! πŸ™‚

  7. Greetings Lauren, it has been a very long time … thanks for dropping by my blog again and letting me rediscover yours! I am glad to see you have continued to share your gifts and talent with “us”. I have a lot of reading and catching up to do. Take care.

    1. You’re welcome and I am so far behind in visiting all those I follow. I don’t like it, but I think everyone is in the same boat, most of the time.. Unless we blog 24/7, which I’m unable to do! πŸ™‚ See you soon and thanks for dropping by, too!

    Lauren, so glad you reminded us to visit your Guestbook … how did I not see this before? I love coming to visit and reading your lovely words … and virtual cookies are simply awesome, thanks – it tasted great with my morning tea, and no calories! LOL. Have a wonderful day, my friend. ~ Love and hugs, Julie xoxox

    1. With so many posts all over WP, it’s easy to miss a few, but thanks for stopping by, Julie! I’m glad you enjoyed the “no cal” cookies, too! Heehee! Love and hugs to you, my friend! xoxox

  9. Hey Lauren, I’ve enjoyed more than a year of this virtual but real friendship with you. We’ve seen each other’s ups, downs, and many expressions from our hearts about our lives. You’re a great writer and person in general my friend. In blogville, for me, everyone kind of feels like family so what would I be? A blogville brother, cousin, or uncle or something? πŸ˜€ Just had to say something silly with the serious stuff too.
    Much love and hugs to you and your family. Continue blessed always

    1. Aww, Scott, thank you! It’s been great getting to know you, too, and I agree with how our blogville friends seem like family.
      Your writing continues to fall off the charts! I valued your feedback from the beginning and still do. Thanks for the hugs, love and blessings and returning some to you…take good care of your daughter and your heart. xx

    1. Thanks, John, you just made my night, as I’m about to go off line. I really appreciate all your visits and “likes” too, and I love your writing, as well. Thanks again!

  10. Hi Lauren…I am going off the blogosphere for focusing on my editing work!! Meanwhile can you guest blog once or twice?? You can put up a post on your book and poems!!! I am inviting you to guest blog and if you can please accept that πŸ™‚ Thank You!!

    1. Hi Kruti, I’m so sorry I missed this comment. How that happens, I have no idea and now it’s been over a month. Will you forgive me? I’d be honored to guest blog if you still want me to, but you probably meant while you’re gone. I think I missed the boat! Sometimes, I just can’t keep up but if you still want me to guest blog, I’d love to and would be honored. Thank you and if it’s too late, no worries, I’m flattered you asked me and just sorry I missed this! πŸ™‚ Have a wonderful weekend!

  11. Lauren, everytime i visit your blog I smell those choclate chips cookies and could not understand from where.. I have decided to turn your blog upside down… and guess what… they are here right infront of my eyes… Each time before I turned up to read what you are baking, I’ll put the kettle on bring cup of green tea with me and enjoy your nxst great writting with a free house cookies πŸ™‚

    1. Hi Doron!

      You made me smile with your comment! I hope you enjoy those cookies. They’re pretty good if I may say so myself! πŸ™‚ Hope you’re doing well and I’m very behind on reading blogs, but will see you soon! Thanks for stopping by! πŸ™‚

      1. Lauren you see it is great, so many day and it is still great Sunday we are talking about… Apology for late reply but I spend very little here now a day but it always great to come and see you around. happy Sunday my friend xx

      2. No reply is late in my book, Doron. Blogging is like a game and most of the time, we’re losing. It’s so hard to catch up, but we all do our best. πŸ™‚ Wishing you a peaceful Sunday, my friend..xx

  12. I’ve enjoyed reading your poetry, particularly the one of the ‘carousel’. Any little girl would love riding that one. (I have a darling little 3 yr. old granddaughter, youngest of four grandchildren.).

    1. Thanks so much, Joyce! I appreciate your kind words. I write a mixture of poetry, spanning from encouragement, romance, passion, nature and children. I hope you continue to enjoy during your visits and my daughter was just a little older than your granddaughter when I wrote the Carousel Dream. They are precious! Take care, Lauren

  13. Thank you for supporting my blog Lauren. I have now stopped blogging on WordPress, hoping to discover new things πŸ™‚ Thank you for sharing you awesome poetry!!!

    1. You’re welcome, Kim and thanks for the update. I wish you all the best and I enjoyed getting to know you through your blog, as well. And thanks for your kind words! πŸ™‚

    1. Hi Don,
      I’m humbled by your words. Thank you so much, and I’m truly glad you enjoy your visits here. I always love reading your thoughts and feedback on my poetry, as well! And although I’m late in reading yours, I feel the same way! Take care!

    1. Well, it looks like we’re both fans, and one can never have too many cookies! πŸ™‚ Thanks for visiting and for following, John. I hope you enjoy each time you return.

  14. Hi Lauren,
    I just left a message in October but wanted to come back and let you know how much I enjoyed your work in 2017. I am not your first follower nor will I be your last but want to continue. All the best for 2018. Thanks for the cookie. (I confess I took two)

    1. Hi John,
      First of all, thanks for popping over here again, and secondly, I really appreciate what you said. That makes my day, and I’m glad you’ve enjoyed my posts so far. Thanks also for the new year wishes, and please…take as many cookies as you’d like. πŸ™‚
      I’m enjoying your blog and writing, as well, although keeping up with the posts is always tough. I do my best, though, so please know that…
      Hope the beginning of your 2018 has been positive and will continue to be, too.Thanks again!

      1. Thanks, John. Whew! That’s always been the tough part because I want to read them all. But it’s humanly impossible if you’re following a lot of people.

  15. Lauren, a delight to pop by and wish you a very happy seventh blogging birthday – congratulations and a great achievement!! It’s been lovely to meet you here, read your posts and chat…here’s to the next seven years! πŸ˜€β€οΈ

    1. Thanks so much, Annika! I’m glad you “signed” my Guestbook. It’s a fun addition to the blog. Yes, seven years with several breaks. But, it’s been a wonderful, learning experience, and I’ve enjoyed meeting so many great people – You, being one of them. I’ve enjoyed your writing and blog, too, so Cheers to more inspiration and great reading! Hugs ❀❀❀

  16. Happy New Year, Lauren and congrats on your seven years of blogging. I’ve enjoyed our friendship over the years and look forward to many more years of conversing via our blogs. Lots of love and hugs.

    1. Hi John! Thanks so much for checking in. All is good here. I joined a local writing group earlier in the year and have ventured into writing personal essays, stepping out of the poetry box. I’m slowly working on another book also that will have essays and a small group of poems. I’ve really enjoyed the group, so I’m not sure when or if I’ll return to blogging. But I miss everyone! Hope all is well with you too!

    1. Thanks so much, Erica, and I invite you to visit my β€œAbout Me” page too. I’m just returning after a long break and I’ll be over your way soon. Take care, Lauren

    1. Aww, that’s wonderful to know, Jane, and I feel the same about you. I appreciate your visit here, and I hope you grabbed a chocolate chip cookie on your way out. πŸ™‚ Hugs, dear friend! 🧑🌻🧑🌻

    1. Oh, Carol Anne, I am so touched by your kindness. I truly am. And I’m also happy to meet you. That’s the beautiful gift of this blogging community. Thanks so much for buying my books. Each has its own purpose and I hope you enjoy them all. I will watch for your reviews in the future. And I will also visit your blog soon and look forward to doing so. Thanks again! ❀️❀️

I appreciate your thoughts!
