When I started blogging a little over a year ago, I never expected to have my life touched by people I have never met. I figured I would read some good writing and learn things along the way. I set out on this blogging adventure not knowing what to expect.
Now, after a year of blogging I have friends that I look forward hearing from. Today, as I started my routine of reading blogs my heart was touched by a variety of emotions. I truly did laugh and cry.
I read one post about sharing laughter. It made me smile and actually did bring some laughter into my life. This writer is a blessing to me. She encourages me and challenges me to do more and be more.
I read about ID photos. This one was very funny. I laughed and unfortunately could relate to bad ID photos…
I read about a mother going away for a week. A week to be ministered to. A week to be refreshed and renewed. She left her family with food, lists and knowledge that she loves them and cares for them even when she is away.
The most heart wrenching post was of a blogger who had just lost a member of her family. A four-legged member of her family. My heart broke for her pain. I wish I was closer to where she is. I would try to bless her somehow. I struggled with this post most of all since yesterday was our puppy’s eleventh birthday and lately he has been a bit more tired, a bit slower. Reading her post made my mind wander to areas I don’t want to think about yet.
I am grateful for all of my blogging friends. My world has been enriched by you all. I know I have written similar posts as this, but I had to write this one more time. It is good to remind and be reminded of how our words affect others.
Thanks for stopping by and I hope you will stop by these other blogs for some great writing. DAF
