Making the most of my "Dash"

I’m a guest!

A guest blogger, that is!  Wow, can you believe it? Yeah, me neither… But, ’tis true.

When Deb from The Monster In Your Closet asked if I would do a guest post for her FTIAT (For This I Am Thankful) series, I was thrilled! I was also shocked, scared, overwhelmed and feeling unworthy.  So, I put it off. Then decided I shouldn’t do it at all.  Until an encouraging comment from Deb on Facebook made me realize I was letting my self-doubt keep me from this new and challenging experience.

Reflecting on what I was thankful for was a wonderful exercise in appreciating things in life.   In appreciating MY life. There are so many things I have been blessed with, it’s difficult to name them all.  A wonderful, loving, supportive husband.  Great kids who are bright, loving, and kind (mostly… they ARE kids after all).  A kind and supportive church where we can worship as a family.  A  beautiful home, and reliable cars (a very important thing for me, based on past experiences).  Living in a lake-side town where people come to get away from the cold during the winter, and spend summers vacationing.  Yet, to truly appreciate these blessings, I had to delve deeper.   Head over here with me to Deb’s, and let me share with you what I am thankful for.

Deb is such an amazing woman, who inspires me with her courage, frankness, and beautiful expressions of  kindness, compassion and love.  I thank you, Deb, for offering this amazing opportunity!

  1. Yay! Looking forward to reading it. Gotta grab some joe first, then I’m all over it. 😉

  2. I was starting to develop withdrawal symptoms, haven’t see a “Dash” in my emails for awhile…glad to see you today! Gonna go read your latest as soon as I post this one!

  3. Loved your post on Deb’s blog and love what I see on yours, as well. Don’t know why you imply you aren’t a good writer. I think you’re great–am going to subscribe!

    • Thank you, Kathryn! I suppose I never really considered myself a “writer”, but this latest exercise in writing has me thinking a tiny bit differently! I am so glad that our paths crossed yesterday, and I have subscribed to your blog as well! I love what I have read so far, I hope for more time soon to get lost in your blog! 🙂

  4. Congrats on your latest victory! The sky’s the limit, as they say!

    • Thank you! I saw your blog yesterday from the wonderful comment you left on Deborah Bryan’s page… And I couldn’t stop reading! You had me laughing for about an hour straight, although I’m sure some of those experiences you shared did not have you laughing as they did me… I had to subscribe, as I simply could not miss out on any more of your adventures!

      Thank you for stopping by the blog, The Hook! I appreciate you taking the time to read and comment!

  5. Sorry I haven’t been around much lately, but my book, The Bellman Chronicles, will be FREE to download on Sept. 10 – 11! Check it out on my Amazon Kindle page.. You won’t be disappointed. And if you can slip me a review, I’d be forever grateful…

Hey there!! Tell me what you think...
