Zing! The A to Z Challenge The Letter Z

Blogging from A to Z Challenge
April 2016
This month I will be participating in the “Blogging from A-Z Challenge” 
What is it?
Blogging every day.  It begins on April First with a topic themed on something with the letter A, then on April second another topic with the letter B as the theme, and so on until I finish on April thirtieth with the theme based on the letter Z.   The theme of the day is the letter scheduled for that day.




"Zing Went The Strings of My Heart"
---------------------------------------------------------------------------- 
heartstrings                                                                                 
                                                                                                      
 The deepest feelings or affections: a tug at the heartstrings.     
-----------------------------------------------------------------------------------

So here we are at the end of another A to Z challenge.  This is the fifth one I have participated in.  I feel the same way at the end of this one as I have at the end of the other four.
One feeling, of course, is relieved.  I'm not going to lie, it is a challenge.
I also have an overwhelming feeling of accomplishment and exhilaration!

But most of all I have the deepest feeling of affection for the A to Z Challenge






Thank you to all who visited and commented on my A to Z posts.   You gave me the incentive and encouragement to keep on going until the end :)

  1. Congrats on making it. My last A to Z... No, wait. I got stuck on Z for Unicorn Bell, too. So, I have one Z post going live in about 9 hours and my final post (on my blog) going live in 11 hours.

    Such a relief to make it this far, isn't it?

    1. Thank you, Liz, for always visiting and leaving nice comments, even when it isn't the A-Z.
      Are you saying you're not doing another one?

  2. You'll read it on my blog, but every year at the end of the challenge I always say "I'm not doing this again" and then I eagerly sign up when the next year rolls around. There is just something special (and nerve wracking and stressful) about doing it. This completes my 4th year. I was already talking to hubby about potential letters for next year :)

    Congrats!!! We did it!

  13. I am glad you did the challenge again--it definitely helped ease me back into the habit a bit to have a familiar face to visit. :)

    It definitely was more of a challenge in some ways this year than it has been previously--I think my schedule with work and school made it much harder for me to do as much commenting and visiting others as I would've liked.
