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.

True Friends Get Naked With One Another

Dear Friends,

I want to get naked with some of you. Together, alone; just us two.

In my lifetime I have had numerous times when I wish I had someone to share things with. When I was way up on the mountaintop filled with happiness and when I was way way down in the valley very sad and depressed. Nobody likes feeling like that and no one wants others to feel that way either.

I’m happy to say that almost from the start of this blog I have been able to be that person for many people. The one I made public was Anne from the Philippines. All others have been private and of course will remain that way.

This post is written simply because if you ever find yourself in need of someone to talk to or someone to just listen to you, I am that person. I give good advice and I am a great listener. It does not mean everyone takes my advice and certainly not everyone agrees with my life philosophies, yet still they come.

Awhile back I received an email from a young lady who loved reading my blog but also had some issues and stopped reading it. I posted her letter and she still doesn’t read my blog as far as I know, but I do get frequent emails from her whenever she needs to talk. I get emails from people as young as 15 years old and as old as or older than me. It feels good to make new friends and be able to be there for others. Use my email address or my contact page and we can converse. If you don’t mind being naked with me according to how I defined it in the graphic below, I’m here for you.

It was mentioned once that I should start an advice blog. I just laughed!

“I was born with an enormous need for affection, and a terrible need to give it.”
Audrey Hepburn
