You Have Blessed Me....

♥ I wish I could give you all a sweet bouquet ♥
 Do you know who you are as a blogger?
 I'm an amateur when it comes to decorating, 
gardening, photography, and cooking, 
 but love reading and seeing all of these things on your blogs. 
I'm a mom of 6, and a homeschooling mom for 16 years,
but rarely post on the how-to's of homeschooling or motherhood,
yet you inspire me in both of these. 
I'm not a writer either. Writer's block is a way of life for me. 
I wing it here my friends.
I really have no idea who I am here in blogland :-)

 One thing I do know...
that the world has become a smaller place since I started blogging. 

You have allowed me to become a world traveler.
You have changed how I view your ways of life,
your countries, and your beliefs. You have taught me so much.
You have encouraged, challenged, and blessed me
beyond anything I could've imagined.

{{You}} are also who I think of when devastation hits your part of the world. 

It's an honor to call you *friends*
 ♥Thank you♥ for sharing your world!
 Blessings,

Isn't this just the best hobby ever. I think as a blogger you offer a respite, a peace and calm when I visit your blog. You are like me, we like the simple things in life.

Hi Marcia -- it sure doesn't sound like you have writer's block to me. A beautiful post that gave me goosebumps. And I only get goosebumps when something is real and honest and straight from the heart and soul! That's who you are in this blogging world. Simply and beautifully YOU! Thanks for sharing a bit of you with us. I never want to be anything other than what I am meant to be! :) Best wishes and blessings, Tammy

You don't have to be a great writer or wonderful photographer. Just little note about you and what is going on in your part of the world is what makes it interesting. Like you are a homeschooling mom! I did too. They are grown and the house is way too quiet now. You are so right, it amazing to learn about our world through the friend we met through blogging. I always enjoy the nice thing you say in my comment boxes and love checking in when I see you have written something new on your page!

Have a blessed week
<><

I love this - I have often asked myself the same question. For me too, it's the sense of community that keeps me coming back, and the freedom of creative expression.
I love your photos!

Janette@Janette's Sage said...

Oh I ditto this post...and yet I have to say I see you as most of these things you mentioned you are not! Thanks for allowing me to enter your world, learn and be inspired by you.
Blessings from this home school mom of six who doesn't post on either much also.

Janet said...

I certainly agree that blogging is an amazing thing to connect and share with others that share the same interests. I feel quite intimidated when I visit other blogs, and do not have the time to post as much or leave as many comments as I would like to. Homeschooling and my family take up most of my time. I think everyone has something unique to offer though... and obviously you do!
Blessings,
Janet

bibbitybob said...

I've just found your blog, and what a wonderful first post to greet me! x

Sarah @ Modern Country Style said...

Hi Marcia,

What a lovely, lovely post. Wow! Homeschooler for 16 years. That's really impressive.

I think what I love about blogs is that most of us *aren't* professionals. It makes it such a friendly, loving place.

Oh...I'm your newest follower!

i don't think many of us are writers, but
we are learning as we go. i've learned so
much about being a better friend from
reading the encouraging comments on
people's blog.

yours is so full of light and cheer.

Cinnamon said...

Hello sweet bloggy friend~

I enjoy coming here. It's like taking a trip to sunny California and sitting out in the sun sipping cold lemonade with you :-)

You are a blessing to me~
