BLOGGER TEMPLATES AND TWITTER BACKGROUNDS

Reading other blogs...

I was wondering how many of us who have blogs read others on a regular basis? My Capt came in last night as I was reading my loooong list of blogs and started laughing at me. He asked me what I find so fascinating in reading about the every day happenings of other peoples lives. He said this as I was searching for tissue just having read a post about a woman traveling behind her daughter and grandchildren on a curvy road..her daughters car went over the edge. Every one was fine but you could tell she was shaken by it and my heart went out to this woman even though I've never met her nor talked to her. There is a simple kinship between mommas. So I've been thinking about why I read blogs and this is what I came up with...I like two kinds of blogs. I love ones that have to do with quilting and also I love the ones who write about their adventures in "momdom". I love taking a peek at the quilts other woman are making..who they are making them for....why they are making them even tools they love the best. I love laughing and getting teary with other moms as they go through their days just trying to do the best they can. It's nice and also comforting in a way to know that there are other women out there who "get" it. You know what I mean?? I love blogging to keep track of our adventures here in Korea and being able to have an outlet for some of my feelings. Some things are easier typed then said. :) When someone leaves a comment it's the icing on the cake for me.
I find myself being honest in myown blog. Maybe I've shocked a few people at how open to new ideas I am. Why this would shock anyone I have no idea. You don't survive as an Air Force wife unless you have an open mind and heart. My being a Christian is in no way harmed by this only enhanced. I do know that friends I've kept in touch with over the years have suddenly stopped being in touch with me. I am wondering if this blog has something to do with that. I've even learned things about myself keeping a daily diary of my life. I can tell you that I have enjoyed it immensely and will continue to do it for as long as we are here in another land. If you do read blogs remember to keep an open mind. Enjoy it for what it is...a peek into someone else's life and then feel honored to have been given that chance. It's fun! Okay...just some things I have been thinking about..heehee I'm off my soapbox now and taking my daughters out for some shopping and the library. Look out Korea I am about to leave my house and who knows what will happen out there today!!! :)

I love reading your blog....look for new updates EVERYDAY!! As for the Capt..he's a man and just doesn't understand how a woman thinks. I can say, mine would be saying the very same thing.

Love ya! I also hope to continue to keep in touch with you once you leave this wonderful abyss we are living in!

I totally can relate...I have a long list of blogs I read too and get caught up in what is going on with who...it is like a big circle of girlfriends, some we know well others we are just getting to know.

BTW...everyone is OK...physically and emotionally. Thank you Jesus!

I think most of us read lots of other blogs. My bloglines list is at 172 and still growing. I'm sure glad everyone doesn't post every day - I'd never have time to quilt!

My heart goes out to your family and your son - what a hard lesson to learn. Sounds like he's going to be fine. Keep telling yourself that people like this father mostly hurt themselves and their own family - I can't imagine how less rich my life would be without people of "all" kinds in it - different races, different religions, different ethnic background, etc. I feel so sorry for those people whose narrow viewpoints cause them to miss some of the most wonderful things life has to give us.

I find that I have to take a day or so leaving my entry as a draft sometimes, to let me read it with fresh eyes again. Blogging becomes like a confessional/diary sometimes and I forget my family reads it!
I enjoy reading your blog. I have a dear nephew in Korea, a very infrequent writer, so your entries help me picture his surroundings too!
