This week, The Homeschool Village would like us to dedicate our post to a blogger for whom we're thankful.
Seriously, if I did that, it would be a long, long, LONG, L.O.N.G. post. I am thankful to a ton of bloggers!
To my local blogging friends, I love to read your blogs! It's funny to me that I see you in person, some of you several times a week, and yet I find out a lot of what's going on in your lives via your blogs. Maybe it's because when I'm reading your blogs, I am focused on YOU and not thinking about what I'm going to say next, or (let's be completely honest here) I'm not trying to figure out how to turn the conversation back to me.
(Yes, I know. I really do. I'm working on my listening skills.)
(There is a certain freedom in blogging though. I find that I start typing and all sorts of stuff comes out. That's the real reason I usually write up my posts in advance. Sometimes I read the stuff I wrote later and think "OVERSHARE ALERT!!" LOL I'm betting that a lot of you have found out more about me via my blog than I've told you personally.)
To my long distance blogging friends, you have also blessed me. There are tons of times when your blogs are words fitly spoken to me. When I'm having one of those days, you know the ones, I can find blogs to make me laugh, or make me cry, or speak mercy to me, or give me a push in the right direction. I've had pity parties stopped and giggles started, or tears of repentance, or felt an arm of encouragement around my shoulders.
And not bloggers, but to my Christian Moms Forum buddies ... can't do a shoutout to long distance mamas without sending you guys a big huge cyber hug! I am so thankful for all of y'all! Again with the laughing and crying, the hugs, the kicks in the pants.
I am so thankful that the Lord put me in this circle. Both with my local friends and my long distance friends. I love you all, and thank you all for being such an encouragement to me.
