How has blogging enriched your life?
Nola @ the Alamo has asked me this question for my blogaversary.
This is a very deep question.
As some of you know from following me from early on. I started blogging as a way to heal my self. I was recovering from a severe depression. By blogging every day and finding something positive to post. I could see life was not so bad. In fact life got better every day. I also improved my memory and writing skills a bit.
I found friends who have some things in common. So I did not feel so alone in this world.
I will tell you a little bit about some of my 4 longest blog friends.
I know I have learned allot. From Wendy she is a writer. She motivated me to want to paint a picture with words. My words do not sing like hers. But I can now say some things with out bringing out all the negativity that was involved. She is an inspiration to me. As we walk a similar path,,and have a many things in common.
I get to see farm life with Gail. She too is an artist with both words and paint.
She is fun, and entertaining. She can paint pictures with words very well.
With her blog, I can virtually live a happy farm life, with out all the work.
Sue Has been my friend from the beginning. She lives in Australia, This is a country I have always dreamed of visiting. She has read many posts, that I have deleted. And encouraged me with loving words.
Carla, Came in a bit later, but she went back and read every post I had left up. She makes me feel encouraged. I even was able to meet her and her wonderful family.
So we took our friendship to the next level.
Every one here has added so much to my life. I am very thankful.
That too is why I started the Thankful Thursday post with Grace Alone.
I have learned it is very important to be grateful for what you have. And not worry about things that are not meant to be.
With this weekly post, people encourage each other with kindness. Even though no one is really of the same religion. They have no issue with each other. Because we all believe in the same God. So it is not important what denomination you belong to.
Jamie is a new addition to my life.
She is a a professional creative self-development coach from Canada.
She enveloped my life with artistic life. Just by working with the Wreck this journal book. But it was more than the book. It was the community of bloggers. The power of amazing fun, that was shared. And I found an amazing amount of special people like Kavindra, & Lawendula. They make my heart sing with joy.
But now the group is fading away. A new one for another book will start Friday, September 18th. With the Joy diet. This book is very deep. So I do not know how this will go.
Like wish casting. I am afraid if I allow my self to wish and want too much.
I may be be tempted to be in another life. Or it will improve this one. This is my intension.
I am so thankful you enjoy my silly antics of raising baby chickens and the squirrel.
It is kinda. like show boring baby pictures. LOL. I do that too.
Jeremy is with us this week end. And he is wearing my rose colored glasses because Cheep E is a pecker now.
I am glad you are enjoying me learn to draw & paint too.
These 2 pages started as practice on learning to draw eyes better. And one turned into a kissing alien.
The last photo is from my trip in march. This is my sister in law and me on the edge of a cliff in Fort Pain Alabama. This was my favorite place of all. We had a log cabin in the woods .with our own porch swing. When we got there. I called home and told every one. I was not coming home. But no one believed me. Hubby said I knew you could not afford to stay there forever.
But a person can dream, right! See I told you.I have to be careful what I wish for.
Or I may be living in the swamp in Louisiana. And I really don't want to be around so many snakes. As they think I am a mouse.
Please do not be offended .if I did not say something about each of you. As I so could. But this post would be a mile long if I went on. Just know you are very special to me. And your comment is so heart felt.
If you would like to ask me a question. Please feel free.
Have a wonderful day and remember to laugh and play.
This is the golf of Mexico as we drove down the highway in March.
