There are days I read some of my favourite blogs and could weep for the pain and sorrow people are enduring. And all I can offer in the way of comfort are words. It feels so inadequate.
And yet…I must keep in mind how the words of others can make my world right again – make me feel connected to people who care.
Those who blog may not be able to offer comfort in a physical sense but the comfort we receive from the words of others manifests itself in a physical way – a smile, a happy sigh, a loosening of those tense shoulders, a sense of belonging that can lift your spirits.
Just a “Welcome back, Darlin’” can do it for me.
I belong to a community of people who share – their stories and their concern - and who care.
It’s a nice place to hang out.
Apropos of the above, I am the recipient of a Blogging Blessing from not one, but two bloggers – Sherry and La La.
Well, bless my soul! A double blessing… My thanks to you both.
The blessing is as follows:
The idea…it’s a game of tag with a difference, rather than looking inwardly, we look outside ourselves and bless, praise and pray for 3 blog friends. By participating in this endeavour we not only make the recipient of the blessing feel valued and appreciated, but we are having some fun too. We’re going to see how far the bloggin’ blessings can travel around the world and how many people can be blessed! Recipients of a bloggin’ blessing may upload the above image to their sidebar if they choose to. If you receive a bloggin’ blessin’ please leave a comment on this thread here so that we can rejoice in just how many blessings have been sent around the world.
I am passing this on to:
These ladies already possess great spirit, humour and the capacity to delight in the world but I figure an extra blessing (or two) is always welcome.
(No pressure as to joining the “tag.” Simply consider yourselves appreciated and blessed by me – for what it’s worth.)
