I received a comment from my daughter yesterday saying, "Mother, where are you and why aren't you blogging?????" So....at the risk of being ex-communicated from the blogging world I decided I better let ya'll know I'm still alive and kickin' out here!
I have just not been able to "get it together" lately. I was "tagged" by several of my sweet blogging friends recently and I have just simply not had the time to sit down to do the memes and awards, but I want you to know that I WILL!
I have not had very much to blog about in recent days, but I did have something exciting happen to me last week. I had a very stressful day at work and when I finally got home that night it was dark outside when I went to check my mail. There was a box in the mail from a company that said "Kritters In The Mailbox"! I'll be honest -- I was a little nervous about EXACTLY what MIGHT be in this box! I'm not usually real crazy about "kritters"!
But, when I opened up the box, I found the sweetest gift from one of the sweetest people I have "met" through this blogging world, Dawn. She had read one of my previous posts about one of my favorite things and had remembered it. This is what was in the box:
The cutest little pewter owl pin!
And the cutest owl socks you have ever seen!
How precious are these guys!!
I'll be honest -- it just lifted my spirits so much! Isn't it wonderful how God will use a friend to lift our spirits at JUST the RIGHT time! I think that's what I love so much about blogging! Many of you have no idea what an encouragement you are to me after a stressful day when I come home and read your posts.
Just know that God uses you in so many ways in my life and I thank each one of you for the encouragement that you give. Even when I don't have time to leave a comment on your blogs or post on my own, I am still reading your blogs and are so blessed by them!
Please don't give up on me! I promise I'll be back in the swing of things very soon!
