Breaking My Own Rule – Again

Dear Friends,

I have a self-imposed rule about posting more than once during any given day. On occasion I have broken that rule for what I felt was a good reason. Also, I know that the people who both follow and comment here are some of the most kind-hearted in the entire world universe! For that reason I am asking you to visit (bombard would be a better word) a new-found friend’s blog.

She has an illness that she has written about in her latest post, Illness, and I think it would great if she could receive some encouragement and friendly conversation from other bloggers. She is still in high school and I encourage mothers, and other bloggers in her age group to head on over there (27unspokenwords) and say hello. I’m going to assume she is still in school right now and it would be a pleasant surprise for her when she visits her blog this afternoon or tonight and sees the outpouring of kindness. I thank any of you, all of you who stop by her place. And as for you guys are concerned; have a great weekend!

Friends & Neighbors

Does anyone remember a time when you or your parents would bring a covered dish, perhaps a dessert to the new neighbors? I do and I think it is a tradition that should stand, providing you are a good cook (smile). I got the idea for this from a friend who just today had a neighbor borrow some sugar. I thought that was so old skool that my mind came up with this post.

In that same vein, I would like you to welcome a few of our WordPress neighbors to our little family here. It would be difficult to provide any sort of edible gesture, but if you could visit, welcome and leave a comment, I for one would be most appreciative and would jump through hoops to try to show you just how much I appreciate it. Not all of the blogs/bloggers listed below are new to WordPress. Some have been blogging for quite awhile but they are new to me and perhaps you too.

Visiting these blogs could prove both beneficial to the new neighbor and to you as a new friendship could bloom. I will try to do this once a month or at least as the neighborhood grows. Also, the below listed blogs do not account for the total number of blogs I have been blessed to visit. I did not know I was going to do this so there are those I have inadvertently left out. Please feel free to include yourself in the comment section. No doubt I have the best friends on WordPress and they will be most happy to visit you too.

Next time I hope to keep a more accurate account. Two of the fine bloggers mentioned below have already agreed to guest post for me! Information included with the blog is from their about page. If they don’t have one, I did not write anything. Let’s not all pick from the top! I can’t help thinking about Mr. Fred Rogers.

Friends & Neighbors

Turner Watson – Full-time radio idiot.  Seriously, they pay me to be an idiot.  I’m also a part-time writer/blogger.

MikeThompkins – Aspiring to become either a broadcast journalist and anchor for television news or a child/teen psychologist/guidance counselor.

Diary of a Sagittarius – A wife, mom & lover of life just trying to survive like the rest of you.

Fay Moore: I Want To Be A Writer – This blog records the journey I am taking from novice dreamer to professional author. Just moved into the neighborhood from Blogger.

Thoughts From A Jaded Heart – Having few people I trust to disclose my inner thoughts fully to, I chose to start a blog.  I hoped that by making my words public (albeit anonymous) that it would help more than just writing notes to myself.

FireAndRabbits -It’s sort of become a journey of healing for me as I try to accomplish my goals and obtain wellness in the face of bi-polar disorder.

PhotosDesignsWritings – I photograph. Design. Braid. Write. Sometimes I think way too much. I Laugh. Smile. Love. Learn. Grow. I bleed just like you. Could we judge less and embrace more?

MissMichelleXie – I’m 20 and have absolutely no clue of where I’m heading.

Bunny Ears & Bat Wings – Mom and wife. Freelance writer and editor. Book reviewer. Tea drinker. “The Walking Dead” fanatic

Southern Cricut Lady – Vanessa. Remember that show “thirtysomething”? Yeah, I never watched it either but it’s a good description of my age. I’m from the “South”, I’m a “lady” as in a “getting up there in age” female, and I enjoy making cards with my Cricut.

PsyKoilogy – I am not psychotic but I have tendencies to talk to myself and see things in a different way. I like to call my “psychotic” moments as conversations with the wall. I like talking to the wall…it does not talk back.

Snotting Black – I dream of moving to San Francisco and making a living writing things in English, my mother tongue. I would also like a unicorn puppy that poops butterflies.

Hot Pink Underwear – It’s just that I REALLY want to mention my attractive “unmentionables,” and while I’m at it, I’ve got these scandalous stories lurking in my mind and imaginary people carrying on at all hours about this and that.

TheBlogOfAnnaRae- As you would guess, I enjoy writing as well as photography and music. You could say they are my big three, however, my real number 1 is Jesus Christ. He saved my life and I try to live for him everyday. I mess up daily in my walk with him but he never leaves me. You could say I’ve found my true love!

This Is Just ME – I am just an ordinary girl who loves to talk, to travel and to make people laugh. I am also a girl who seriously falls in love with someone who deserves my heart.

Ladies, Ladies, Ladies; Your Advice & Opinions Are Requested

Ladies, ladies, ladies. I had a very disturbing conversation with a blogging friend. First, let me say that I am honored that people feel as though they can contact me and share intimate details of their lives and second, it can be a bit daunting! Indeed, it is daunting and a huge responsibility, and that is why I am enlisting the aid of the wonderful female type persons that read this blog.

Help me please. As I stated, a blogger shared with me that he has friend (a woman), who is married. She is married to a man who is well liked, even loved throughout the neighborhood and he has a position of authority in their community. They have been married for more than twenty years. They have four children, all teenagers. One day while she was disciplining one of the children he just came out of the blue, grabbed her hair and dragged her down the hallway, then picked her up and threw her across the room. As near as we can guess, he did this because she was yelling at their child. More things transpired and she was so fearful that she asked for him to kill her.

Ladies, now it is your turn. You don’t know the full story and neither do I. Also I did not get permission before I posted this so please be tactful if you respond. My friend has already given his words of comfort to her but I would like to see what you’d say.

I am not seeking direct advice for her and I’m not trying to advocate divorce. I simply would like you to place yourself in her position and clearly and without any threats of murder, describe what you would do/would have done. Stay, leave, forgive and forget, call the police, grin and bear it… While this is directed for feminine expression, men you can respond too and say what you would do also in her situation. I won’t be replying to your comments because this is not about me, however I do thank you for your comments..

Saturday will be the first guest post of the new year by a nervous Te’Kia Miller. She is a wonderful poet and her works can be found on her blog, Tekia’s Blog. She is in the process of writing a short story. Short stories are in fact, her first love and Te’Kia’s favorite genre is science fiction. Her latest, The Fall of Gild City was originally scheduled for December 29th but was posted on January 1st. I was hooked and I’m not much of a reader (I’d rather watch the movie}, but this story is great so far.
