"Why I Love Blogging" Party

Joy at is hosting this wonderful blogging party! The participating bloggers are to share what it is they love about blogging:) I love blogging for a multitude of reasons!
I love blogging because I have met so many wonderful friends around the world with such beautiful individuality just like the different types of goodies found in a box of chocolates:)
I love blogging because I am able to reach out and share my life and the lives of others.

I love blogging because it takes me on paths to places worldwide, places I would not normally get to see.

I love blogging because it shines light into my life and provides an opportunity to share that light with others.
I love blogging because it gives me a chance to relax and contemplate.

I love blogging because the friends I have made add beauty and grace to my life.
I love blogging because it wraps me in the artistry, inspiration, and creativity of amazing people.
I love blogging because it is like the rays of the sun warming my soul with the kindness and faith of others.
I love blogging because it leads me to the lives of wonderful, treasured, talented, and creative, individuals that I am blessed to call friends:)

Wow, I think you said it so well. The pictures you paired with your statements were perfect.

I love blogging too, I look at like a quilt that is being stitched in time in the hearts of friends I have met along the way and in my own heart. It's a quilt of laughter, inspiration, thought provoking words, stories, smiles, sighs, highs, lows, the extraordinary and the little miracles of everday life.

What a sweet and mindful post about the real reason that we blog: to find the beauty in everyday life, record it and share it with new friends. Superb.

All this talk of velvet and lace,
Where is the horsewoman with mud on her face? (That was mud right?)

I can take no credit for your poetry or prose,
but please give me some for the fantastic nose!

I'll go now before your friends get upset or mad,
Just please explain to them it's just DAD.

Can't wait to see you.

Love Dad

PS: Why is there no spell checker on this thing??!!!

Lovely photos and thoughts....Love Tiina.....

dragonflydreamer said...

Hi Kim, Your blog is stunning and delightful and I may never return to the real world as I find such lovely places like yours. I share each of your perfectly articulated reasons for blogging. All of the photos on your blog are gorgeous and I share many things in common with you; my jack russell is named Roxy and she can destuff or destroy anything in minutes, I also love roses, Victorian homes, blogging, spirituality and much more I'm sure I will find when I return to dig in deep with a cup of hot tea. Hope you've had a great party day and May Day!

Andrea said...

Kim, this is such a beautiful tribute. The pictures and your lovely words are wonderful!

I completely agree! And that very much includes you! You're a dear friend, and I appreciate you.

God bless.
