Inspired By You Wednesdays

This is my 200th post! (Bells! Mad Clapping! Fireworks!) I'd like to thank the academ...wait that's the wrong speech...I'd like to thank my sister-in-law Tiffany...there we go. Tiffany inspired me to begin blogging about a year-and-a-half ago. Tiffany thanks so much for inspiring this journey of exploring my soul through writing and recording my experiences.

This addiction habit, of looking at my life from the perspective of someone reading about it, has given me a new vision of myself, my emotions, my husband, my children and my mortal journey. Each moment, has become more important then my incessant guilt over the past, embracing what each moment is, has quieted the spinning speculation about an unrealized future. What peace and joy there is in fully embracing each precious experience of my life in the moment it unfolds.

My sister told me that I come across, "all Zen like", in my blog, "not at all what it feels like to actually hang out amidst all the high intensity comings and goings of the real thing", she would add . I know what she means because as I visit your lives through your posts you all seem so, "Zen like", even though I'm guessing you feel like a crazy person most of the time, just like me.

I look forward to visiting each of you, reading about your day or week, laughing at your humor, nodding along with your rants, aching for you in your trials, celebrating the moments of your wonderful lives. I hope as you read my posts that you receive a portion of the joy I receive from each of you.

Thank you for your comments and interest, thanks Tiffany and all of you. YOU INSPIRE ME!

WAAAAYYYYY too much 'zenness' for me being so tired.

I too rest in the thought that no one's life is as zen as their blog makes it sound... I am convincing myself that surrounding myself with boys is not as calming and zen as your bio seems to say it is. Can you tell I am too tired to think up any other word other than zen?

I need to go help a two year old put on a cowboy jacket.

How zen is that?

I am addicted as well. There are many reasons. I can't list them all here. Too many.

Happy 200th! Thank you for sharing your life and your walk with God with the rest of us out here. You are a beautiful woman of God, and a fun person to be blogger friends with. Here is to another 200 and beyond.
As feminine as this coment sounds, this is the Mr.

What a wonderful post ! Congrats...I am so glad I found your blog...

As for Zen, it's in the eye of the beholder ( as the Mom of 4 grown boys, I can think of anything except Zen when it comes to my boys)

You are amazing !

Congrats on post #200! WOW take a bow..oh you already did ;)
I love your blog, in fact reading other blogs as well as writing one is an addiction in itself :)
Nice to know we aren't alone in this journal journey huh!

What a perfect day to meet you! You're a delight. I cannot believe all those BOYS. I only have two (and my husband) and I already feel waaay out-numbered.

This is a lovely post. So true. I love blogging for these same reasons.

Happy 200th!

bravo, bravo! I love this whole blogging thing.. So glad I found it a couple months ago - I love talking to women all day long (a minute here and there) and not feeling alone as we technically usually are!

continue on Zen master!
