Zz is for – Zippidy Doo Dah…

Well, here we are at the end of the Gould’s “Family History Through the Alphabet” Challenge and I made it! Many thanks to those who’ve read my posts and wrote encouraging words to help keep my “nose to the grind-stone” and “shoulder to the wheel.” A most un-comfortable position indeed. 🙂

Congrats to those who took up the challenge and have made it all the way through, from A to Z.  For those who can see the end in sight… know that I’m right there with you and cheering you on.

If you’ve had to pause, or stop, because personal circumstances have changed, and made it impossible to continue, I send lots of positive/ healing energy your way. Hopefully you may be able to pick up the challenge later when matters improve.

Last, but by no means least, thanks heaps to you Alona for setting up this Challenge, for commenting on everyone’s posts and also finding time in your busy life to write your own most interesting posts.

In closing, all I can think about right now is a favourite childhood song of mine which I hope you enjoy too. It’s title is:

  1. I’ll toddle off to bed now Susan with happiness in my heart. Thankyou! … Was a bit worried that the “Zippidy Doo Dah” might now be considered offensive. Hopefully not. Thanks for enriching my life 🙂 …

    • It certainly has been a great experience, Fi and I’ve loved reading other contributions. I got to “H” and wrote “Hump Week” because the realisation of the challenge I’d taken on had just hit me 😦 … Phew!!! Don’t reckon I’d have made it through without the wonderful comments and encourage-ment. Am always surprised when others also enjoy my family’s stories. Lovely to hear from you… will see if can get through on your blog too, now that you’ve got those cheeky internet faeries sorted 😀

  2. Aww thanks for the lovely comment Catherine. Congratulations to you for reaching the end of the Alphabet Challenge, and thank you for participating. It’s been a pleasure to have you join in. And I’ve certainly loved your posts. Later this week I will be doing a Round Up/Overview type post of the Challenge, and in that I’ll have some special images that you can use (if you wish) for those who particpated, as those who completed the Alphabet Challenge.

    • Thanks Alona. Has been lots of fun… along with some pain thrown into to mix 🙂 Am still amazed that I made it through but couldn’t have happened without all the encouragement and support from others.
      Your encouraging comments, to all of us, has been a joy to witness. Many thanks, always.

    • Thankyou Sharon and Congrats to you too!… I absolutely LOVE your Z post and every single one I’ve read has been a pleasure … looking forward to reading many more. Thanks for enriching my life.
