So, for the past couple of weeks I have been hearing a little whispering voice that has told me that I need to stop blogging. Of course I have been ignoring it (much like I ignore my kids, husband, and anything else that gets in the way of my blogging.) Well, the little whispers are getting louder and louder ( in the form of a 7 , 4 and a 40 yr old voice and one who is a little bigger and older than that). This time I am listening.
Ladies, I just LOVE LOVE LOVE blogging and all of the friends both Christian and otherwise that I have met. Most of you have made me laugh, cry and just realize that we are all human and trying to live life to the best of our ability. And that with God, all things are possible not through me alone but along with him.
For me, I started this with the intent of having far away family be able to feel closer to us. I grew into what I would consider to be a more Christ like Wife, Mother and Friend because of all of you. Now, my challenge is not to write on a daily basis about what my family is up to but to spend the time with my family. These days are short and I do NOT want my children to remember mommy as someone who is always on the computer.
Believe me when I say that I am so thankful for all of your blogs and for you to continue to blog. In a world where there is not a lot of positivity, this is a positive forum that should be broadcast to the masses. The message of connectedness and sisterhood as God intended us to be.
I will occasionally stop by all of my friends to leave comment love (duh, that is so important) and I will not be done with my blog until I have completed my PAY IT FORWARD from McKrackensX4.
I ask that if you have been following me and you do not currently follow He & Me + 3 that you will check out my cousin because she will continue in the blogging world and has some great insight and humor as well as love for the Lord (and her kids might be on the cute side)!
After discussing this with my oldest son and husband, the words that my 7 year old said..."Thank you Mom, I will love having you back." Gulp Gulp, Kleenex please. I am doing this for them, NOT for me!
So, to end this lovely little post with an 1980's power ballad...which by the way just seemed appropriate (you can thank me later).
Please feel free to keep in touch with me, I will delete the blog once I am done but my profile will still be up.
Thank you so much for all you have taught me and God Bless all of you and your families.
