The card I picked had several different high-heeled shoes portrayed across the front. Inside it said, "Some days the only thing left to say is, 'What shoes go with this stress?'"
I loved that card so much that I bought every one that the store had in the display pocket. I was shocked to find that the one that I sent to my friend the other day was the last of my stash. Do you know what that means? I have too many stressed out friends! Truth is, I debated whether or not to send it to her because I thought that I might need that card for myself someday! I took a chance and put it in the mail. Only a few hours later, when things began to get a bit stirred up, I was wondering if I should have held onto it a little while longer! ; )
Like the thrill of being able to send that card with just the right message, so it is with being a citizen of bloggy world.
I love words! I love reading them, singing them, praying them, speaking them, and of course writing them. Blogging is a means for me to swirl some words around, mix in a bit of thought, prayer, and put it all out there in the wide open for all to see. Blogging is a way to stir my creative juices. Sometimes, when it is time to push the 'publish post' button, I have the same feeling that I get right before I take off on a roller coaster ride. I say to myself, "Okay, here goes!" I push the button, then the ride begins! It really adds to the rush of the ride when the comments begin to come in.
The most wonderful part of bloggy world for me has been the fellowship. I have made some sweet, sweet friends who are also some my most faithful prayer partners. My heart has been softened by the ones who have been on their knees for me and those that I care about. I love to visit the blogs of others. I have gained much wisdom as they have opened their storehouses to me and generously shared their portion.
I read a quote by C.S. Lewis the other day that I think sums it up well:
"Friendship is born at the moment when one person says to another, 'What! You too! I thought I was the only one!'" C. S. Lewis
This week one of my faithful, bloggy world friends, Daveda, is hosting a blogger appreciation week. She is the sweetest thing and so wise! You must stop by her blog (just click on her name above) and glean from the riches of her 'pen'. There you will have the opportunity to meet some other very special people who are joining our celebration this week.
Daveda asked us to include a couple of our favorite posts from our past pages so here are a some of mine: Dad's Letter Jacket
Thank you so much for stopping in! You all come back now!
