Friends, just wanted to add a note to this post:
I am sorry I haven't been commenting but I have been sick the last couple of days with the flu. I hope to be back blogging on a regular basis really soon. Thank you all for understanding.......:-) Hugs
I had set a post for last night but somehow blogger not only didn't print it but now I cannot find it.......when I went to publish it manually it went into cyber space. Sometimes I feel I wasn't meant to use a computer.
Over the past several months I have received gifts from all of over the world. I have e-mailed or sent thank you cards to these lovely bloggers who were so very thoughtful. Last nights post included links to each blog but I fell asleep worried that I may have left someone out.....perhaps this is the way it is suppose to be. They know how thankful I am for the their
I have received doilies, sachets, refrigerator magnets, several book marks, soaps and a journal. I have also read two published books written by two of my favorite bloggers, one was called Visions, written by Victor Semoubarak a favorite author of mine. Everyday on his bog, Time for Reflections he writes about a priest, Father Ignatius and his parish. After reading Victor's book I passed it on to my niece and great niece. My great niece who is 14 loved it and I loved how she learn so many life lessons in such a kind and gentle way. She asked many questions and gave me the opportunity to help her with certain life problems which she is experiencing right now. I would absolutely recommend this book for all those who are teaching Catechism classes. It is a wonderful tool to have on hand to teach young people about our world today.
Another favorite author and blogger is Rose Marie Raccioppi. Her blog is called Apogee Poet and her published book is filled with the most wonderful poems. I encourage all of you to visit Rose Marie and Victor. I am sure you will be pleased with their blogs and talents.
I sincerely hope I have not left a much appreciated gift off my list, if I have it certainly was not intentional. I do not blog to received gifts, if I say something that can help or encourage someone through a difficult time then I am happy. I share my heart and realize that I do not have a monopoly on human feelings, I am not the only one who cares for others.......I feel that each one of us would and do reach out and help others whenever we can. Bloggers have a special bond, a certain connection to each other that cannot be found in any other genre....we are all blessed.
