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!
