BLOGGING

I started blogging in 2008.
My DIL's had blogs and I enjoyed reading theirs so much.

I use it to write,
express my opinion and show off photos of my family
and other things that interest me.
I've printed my blog into a book each year.

I didn't expect to have so much fun.
I have met so many women who have the same interests,
teach me awesome things,
and make me laugh.

There are those I haven't met but still have such a connection with.

Saturday, one of those women lost her husband.
Very unexpected.
My heart hurts for her.

Tammy, you inspire me and have made me laugh.

You are in my prayers, dear friend.
You are far too young to have to go through this.

Send her some love.
Then hug your own.

Such a wonderful post Tauna. I too have become friends with Tammy through blogging but have yet to meet her in person. My heart is heavy with saddness for her and her boys.

I have been blessed to meet such wonderful people as you too through blogging, I always look forward to your posts and hope to one day meet you in person also.

I'm so sorry for your friend Tammy. How so very sad to loose the love of her life so suddenly. It must be so very difficult to adjust to this new reality.

Her faith and God's grace will be there for her through her family and friends and she will find the strength to go on. Sending prayers for courage.
Hugs,
JB

Very nice tribute and such a very sad situation. This "sister in Zion" will be in my prayers tonight.

Well said Tauna. For the exact reasons you stated is why I still blog. I have made such wonderful friends.

I too can't get Tammy out of my mind. I wish we were in the same state so that I could go over and do anything to help her.

She is facing my biggest fear (as you know). All I know is that there is a higher power and I am in awe of Tammy's testimony of the church.

Sweet post Tauna.
It's amazing how much we come to love each other, these peoplewe haven't even met.
I have cried so many tears for Tammy these past couple days. I just keep hoping that the sadness we feel for her somehow lightens her burden.
