A Blog With Substance!
Mary, a new friend I've made at Life In A Small Town, passed this award on to me! Thank you so much, Mary!
I read a few blog posts of bloggers who also received this award and most of them questioned whether their blog was REALLY a blog of substance.
Wellllll.....in my humble opinion, if you are blogging about your life, family, the Lord, things that you love, past, present and future, you surely have a blog of substance.
AND I read about bloggers questioning why they blog or what should they be blogging about.
Well, I'm sure that we all blog for different reasons, but I look at blogging as journaling for me. I've always wanted to journal but have never been good at stick-to-it-tiveness. (my made-up term LOL) My blog has been my best attempt at journaling in my 58 years of living and I'm pretty proud of myself, though since little Jaylon entered this world and our home, my blogging/journaling has suffered a bit BUT I wouldn't trade that little bundle of love and happiness for anything! :-) AND I'll just have to blog around him and his cute little self! :-)
Okay, back to the award!
As part of the acceptance of the award, I have to sum up my blogging philosophy, motivation, and experience in five words.
THE FABRIC OF MY LIFE
That is truly what I feel that my blog is. You know. Like the old cotton commercials. :-)
All that goes on in my life from day to day weaves together to become the fabric of my life.
Okay....now onto the rest of the award. :-) (I'm slowly getting there!)
Next, I'm supposed to tag a few people that I feel have blogs of substance.
Barbara at Stray Thoughts
Chantell at Where You Can Find Me
Stephani at A Defined Life
Mr. and Mrs. Nurseboy at Poop On Jelly
Angie at Angie's Ad Lib
Nel at Fasteneau Facts
There you have it! I'm like Joyce at From This Side of the Pond, in that I am a bit hesitant to pick out certain blogs because as I said above, if I didn't think your blog was a blog of substance, it wouldn't be in my blog list! AND there would be many more blogs listed there IF I had high-speed internet AND more time to blog! Soooooo, I've narrowed my blogs down to what you see in the list because I looooove reading your blogs AND you!!! :-)
AND you didn't really think I could post and NOT show a picture of "you-know-who", did you? LOL
Well, here is a picture of said gorgeous young boy as he climbed upon the VERY narrow piece of wood in middle of the gate that is SUPPOSED to keep him out of our bedroom and bathroom!
I mean.....he had just the tips of his toesies on that thing as he balanced himself and started pulling out my lotions. Thankfully, I had my camera to snap this pic AND grandpa was right behind him to grab him before he made a REAL mess! LOL
Heavens, but he does keep us on our toes these days!!! :-0
