The previous were mentioned several times, but the following are some comments that really stood out, and I appreciate those of you who took time to write me a message.
I like reading your take on life. You bring a perspective from the life of a Northern girl (at least geographically) that this Southern girl (culturally and geographically) doesn’t read in the regular ole blogs of flips flops and big hair. I like when you weave your faith into your life. I read you as authentic. I suspect that if we lived closer, your couch would be the one I would plop on and dish about the perils of being a mom of teens and tweens, of the challenges of our economics, and of the joys that God gives in the midst of it all. So when I come to your blog, those are the things I like to read.
can’t answer that because I don’t see any improvement to an already fun and excellent blog. I would have to say the only thing I want more of is time to read the posts since I hardly get to ready anything anymore. From a mom of two of the same age (ok I am ,like,…6 month older) It’s sometimes the thing that brings a smile on a snowy day.
Anything you write is good, I love your honesty and your sense of humor.
More on faith, especially funny (ha ha) faith- not funny-strange. Also the faith series you did last fall was EXCELLENT. More of that.
More on your travels & the uniqueness of each place – loved your stories of Florida, Maine, and New York – with pics.
Funny Mom Moments
Faith in Action
I especially loved the funny faith, not strange faith comment. I’m right there with you. It’s all straight-up faith, minus the strange around here.
New Topics You’d like me to Write About
Again, I loved all your comments, but these are the ones who asked for something specific. There are some great ideas and I promise to address them.
No, I’m just using this space to ask you to please not give up your WIWW posts. I know you think they are awful, but as one thrift, Goodwill, hand me down, clothes wearer to another, you give a great deal more inspiration to my closet than those who are shopping Nordstrom’s every other Tuesday afternoon.
Yes ma’am! I don’t know how to even say this. And I’m not talking about you, I promise. I enjoy looking through what I wore Wednesday outfits. I understand style is very very personal. But sometimes some of the women (includes moms) dress like teenagers. I will look at the outfit and then at the face and the two just don’t go together. Maybe somehow you can address this delicate topic? How to dress stylish and age appropriate… On the other hand I’m not sure if it’s even worth addressing this topic, it has big potential to offend women… I will not be disappointed if you don’t.
I’d love to read about your take on relationships such as friendships & how you manage them with your busy family life. I have only a few friends and rarely get together with them outside of church. I’m really a loner and it takes so much effort to build relationships. I usually don’t try very hard.
And to the person who said you are praying for me – Thank You so very much. You have no idea how encouraging that is to hear. I am blessed to have such thoughtful readers and I don’t take you for granted.
A few of you asked me to hurry up and write a book. I’m like a turtle sometimes and I’m sorry. I get all caught up in self-doubt and the idea that I couldn’t possibly fill a book with my words.
Having said that, the gears are in motion. I’m working. Don’t expect anything too miraculous, but I’ll get it done….eventually.
Thank you for being patient and for believing in me even when I don’t believe in myself.
