Bloggy Love

Each day on my way to work I see a cute little mom walking her three kids to school. I love seeing her because she always has a smile on her face as she is talking with her kids. The kids obviously love being with her because they are usually laughing and smiling too.

The first day I saw them I just sat and stared. I was waiting at a light and they were walking through section of road that is under construction. The kids were listening intently to something their mother was saying. Then came the smiles. I tell you - each day I see them it is the same scenario! And it warms my heart. I look forward to seeing them each day. I sometimes have the urge to pull over and give her a hug.

This is how I feel about my blogging friends!

I can't wait to read your posts. I love hearing of the fun and exciting things in your lives. I laugh when you share embarrassing stories and funny events. I hurt for you when you are hurting or experiencing hardships.

Each one of you brings something to my life. I love all of you and your blogs for so many reasons. You inspire me. You make me laugh. Really laugh! You make me stop and think about the important things in life. You've even made me cry.

So, if your name is on my sidebar, you inspire me. You make me want to be better.

Thank you!

So, gather 'round everyone for a great big group hug - redhoodoo style!

I was thinking about you today. A friend of a friend is moving to your neck of the woods (mountains). And.....it made me think of you. =D

Probably about the time you were thinking of us. 8:30ish this morning. Did your nose itch? Or whatever your body does in response to someone thinking about you?

I love reading about my friend's lives, too. {{hugs}} in return!

you should really let that mama know some day. You never know it may really make her day on a crummy day. Just have a little note card ready and you can pass it out the window to her.

Phew! I'm on your sidebar! You are one of the best things I have found in the bloggy world--I am sad when you have to be a responsible grown-up and don't have time to blog.

Mechelle said...

I agree with MG. It would be wonderful for you to tell the mother how much you have enjoyed her.

I was talking with my visiting teachers about blogging... they were kind of poo-pooing it and I got a little emotional and told them all the wonderful things about blogging-- the friends I had met... and then when I realized they were staring at me like I was crazy, I ended my little speech with "that's my testimony of blogging. In the name of jesus christ amen". They laughed, but I think they still thought I was nuts.

So, Amen to your post. I feel the exact same way!

You should tell that Mommy. Really. It will make her day!

Oh Red, can I just tell you how much your comments on my blog lifted my spirits?!? Just that little "I miss you!" made my day! Thank you, thank you, thank you! I so feel the same way about my blogging buddies. Did you ever think that having a blog would bring such blessings through the people that you would meet?

How is work going? Are you juggling everything ok? Have you gotten your first paycheck? Wahoo!! Happy Day!

Hope all is well
