First, I want to thank Joy of Cupids Charm for hosting this Beautiful Blogging Party.
The people, the beauty and the hope out in blogland encourage me.
I’m not the best writer or the best photographer, but blogging has given me a greater awareness of the world and the way I view that world through my camera lens. The view is more hopeful than the nightly news or rumors of the next tragic happening. Yes, ugly things happen, but main stream media seems to fixate on these things and the beauty of our world fades away, leaving us with a view of fear and despair. Blogging brings hope.
Have you ever read a fun post when you were feeling down, and then realized you’ve laughed your bad feelings away? Have you ever been inspired by the beauty of people’s hearts and the passions that drive them, especially when they are facing insurmountable odds? These have been my experiences with blogging.
Lately, I’ve been thinking about the people who always take time to visit my blog and leave comments. Though I’ve never seen most of their faces, I realize that those connections mean the world to me. My readers are people of substance with beautiful hearts and kindred spirits.
Joy’s party has presented me with an opportunity to say to all of you, from the very bottom of my heart and soul . . .
Thank you for the encouragement.
Thank you for the joy.
Thank you for the tears.
Thank you for sharing your hearts.
Thank you for your kindness.
