blogiddy blog business

I'm like a billion years behind in all things Blog. That's what happens when three of our four family members with colds ends up with ear infections. And, sadly, it's looking like another virus is hitting us again this week. More to come on that later.

So, first up, a Great Big Hug and Thanks to Onedia, who gave me a Blessing a couple weeks ago. That was before the vomitfest and days upon days of crying and the sleep deprivation.

This is something first started by Ukok. We are each to bless three people, as she explains:

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 endeavor 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!

And, she wrote:
This is my wish for you:
Comfort on difficult days, Smiles when sadness intrudes,
Rainbows to follow the clouds, Laughter to kiss your lips,
Sunsets to warm your heart, Hugs when spirits sag,
Beauty for your eyes to see, Friendships to brighten your being,
Faith so that you can believe, Confidence for when you doubt,
Courage to know yourself, Patience to accept the truth,
Love to complete your life.”

I want to pass this along to three others.

Candace
Laura
Carey

Also, storyteller from Small Reflections, gave me an award telling me that my blog is a treasure! That was so nice, so thank you. There are so many wonderful treasures out there.


Here's a few treasures who are also new to my blog roll as well. Be sure to visit and tell them I sent you.

Bullseye, Baby
The Elmo Wallpaper
Halushki
She She
Having Enough
In Pursuit of Balance
Mama of Letters
Mama's Village
Sunshine's Blog
Writing in the Water

So, there, you little treasures, you ... be proud!

Next up: Michelle at Thebeartwinsmomsden tagged me a while back for a meme, which you probably figured out I don't typically do -- only because I write what moves me and most of that never fits in a meme.

But, I'm trying to change my ways.


Thank you for visiting today.

Shawn - my daughter Aviva's Hebrew name is Simma, which means treasure in ancient Aramaic. We're all treasures. It's an especially special word around these parts, so thank you. I am psyched to check out these other treasures I hadn't discovered yet...

By the way, I posted an Obama video today and thought of you, with respect for your passionate support of Hillary. Believe me, if she wins the nomination, I'll be stumping!
