Thankful for Friends

This week's link up at the Homeschool Village is about Thankfulness and sharing about a blogger that we're thankful for.

I have  1, 2, o.k. 3 in mind-  First off, my friend Tina over at Life of the Gilbert Gang. Tina is a hardworking homeschooler that is not only homeschooling her own tribe, but  others as well. She is a dedicated educator, an encourager and starts the best threads over at  TWTM highschool forum! Tina,  you amaze me with all that you do!

I am also very appreciative of Deanna at Materfamilias. Deanna has a great sense of humor (maybe I lol when I read her posts cause her sense of humor is so much like mine) and is another great encourager. Be sure to check out her girls blogs as well. Deanna, I always feel at peace when I read your blog!

Both of these bloggerbuddies have written encouraging words to me all year. They probably have no idea how much I appreciate them, their support and their dedication to homeschooling!

Of course, I love the blogs I've listed in my side-bar (especially my dd's- Serving Him Blind & Vermillion Road cause they are just interesting, wonderful people )  but wanted to draw your attention to 2, A Mother's Rule and Notice the Universe, both written by my friend Mary. Mary successfully graduated from a homeschool career when her youngest left for college 2 years ago.  She's is one of smartest people I know, is warm, gentle and humble, and has a lot of wisdom to share. I appreciate her writing because she gives me a lot to think about, puts words to my own thoughts and challenges me. I always feel blessed when I've talked with her, and my world grows when I read her writing.

While we're on the topic of thankfulness, I'd like to say how very grateful I am for those who read this blog, share comments, or let me know that what they've read has been meaningful to them in some way. I appreciate YOU, dear READER!!

Don't forget to stop by HSV and link up this week. We all have a lot to be thankful for!

It's good to meet you! I am hopping over from the homeschool village. :) I really enjoyed your post. I love those friends who just open their mouths and wisdom falls out. The Lord has blessed me with a few on my homeschool journey and I just love them to pieces. :)
