Some days I wake up and feel like I never want to write another blog post
ever again. (I wonder if that happens to anyone else.) The desire to become an
ex-blogger doesn’t usually last long. As soon as the next ‘great’ blog post
idea occurs to me, I can’t wait to get back to my computer and start writing.
Yesterday I had one of those I’m-never-going-to-blog-again
mornings. Then I checked my mail and saw this comment from Lucinda from
Navigating by Joy
: “… I’ve given you a Very Inspiring Blogger award!” Well, of
course, I forgot all about not wanting to write. Become an ex-blogger? What a
silly idea that was!
Thank you so much, Lucinda for this award. You really did
make my day. I’m still smiling as I write this post. Blog awards are, as
Lucinda said, an act of kindness. They also encourage, they spread joy and result in smiles.
I ‘met’ Lucinda when she stopped to comment on one of my
posts, some months ago. I am not always very good at networking, so I really do
appreciate it when readers are kind enough to stop and say hello to me.
I am sure I’m meant to pass this award onto other inspiring bloggers. There is only one problem: I’m never any good at listing people for awards. I know I will miss someone out (by mistake) if I try and do that. Instead, I hope it’s okay if I just say thank you to all the beautiful women who have taken the time to comment recently. You have encouraged me to keep writing posts for this blog. Thank you for reading my stories and stopping to share your thoughts. I have enjoyed visiting your blogs and reading your own inspiring posts. We are all taking part in a ‘Great Homeschool Conversation’ (quote from Lucinda). Doesn’t that sound exciting?
I am in the process of putting together a homeschooling blog list which can be found in my side-bar. I hope you will take a look and then visit Lucinda
, and a few of my other friends. Stop and say hello. A comment, like a blog award, can be very encouraging. You might also discover some great ideas and be inspired like me.
Thank you so much, Lucinda!
