Did ya know?

I have some amazing people around me! When I have a bad day, they are always doing something to make me smile. Lately the days seem to have more negative than good, so much to think about and consider, but I'm trying to keep it all positive here (as much as possible).

There are so many of you that don't comment much on my blog, but are always encouraging me. Granny in Mexico, Nana, Mom (aka Gramma Owie), Rebekah, June (Grammy)... the list goes on. (Dana is one of those non-commenters, although he does read regularly)

If you do read my comments you will see that Mrs. Mordecai and I both have sons the same age, and Ann's daughter and Mo were born just days apart. Mom's of two year olds can always commiserate together (they really are so much fun!). Kelli comes by and always makes me feel good. She has hundreds of people reading her blog, but she takes time to stop in and say something personal.

The commenter that has really been making me smile lately, Jennifer! We often have conversations in each other's comments. She always has something sweet and funny to say to me! I really appreciate that!
I lifted your photo, but it's always easier to ask forgiveness than ask permission!

There are many more of you that I didn't mention, but I just had to say Thanks for the smiles!

You know about reaping and sowing, right? Well if I have been sowing smiles over here I have just reaped myself a big old grin in return!!

Seriously, you know what? This is an affirmation of what friendship is and I think we are doing a good thing. As Sisters in Christ, we are supposed to be encouragers of each other and that has been the part about blogging that has stunned me. I thought blogging was about writing but I found that, as is life, it was really more about people. And really without love and friendship, wouldn't our blogs just be a bip heap of words?

I could try to act all coy and say "Awww, you shouldn't have" but, NAAAAHHHH! I'll just take the Blog Love and run!

Thank You TJ!


*I can't believe you would bloglift a photograph. Gosh I'd never do that. :)

Mrs. Mordecai said...

Thank you! You're always so encouraging to me.

I think you're amazing, by the way. I can't believe you hold down a job and take such good care of your house and kids.
