2007 -- Mission Accomplished -- I did NaBloPoMo here and at Small Reflections as a "newbie"

With thanks to
at Part of Everything

for this badge

and this one too!

Who knew something like this could be so much fun?
Some day I'll learn how to make badges
that I can share with others.

I'm glad you like the badges :) Congratulations on making it through!

Really interesting site.

This quote:

"I know God will not give me anything I can't handle. I just wish that He didn't trust me so much."--Mother Teresa

is on my refrigerator :)

This one:

"Forgive yourself for everything you did not know in the past but do now. Don't waster any of your precious energy beating yourself, or anyone else, up. Your power to change your life is in the present, regardless of your past."
Dr. Christiane Northrup

is one that I REALLY need to learn because it haunts me. I know this intellectually, but not emotionally. Particularly in situations where the fault was someone else's but it was my decision to trust them.

And this one:

"We act as though comfort and luxury were the
chief requirements in life, when all that we need to make us really happy is something to be really enthusiastic about."
Charles Kingsley

is very true!

Thanks for the comment on my blog! Congrats on making it through November, what a great feeling! You have a wonderful blog, I'll be back!

Nope, Melissa is the creator, I was just sharing on my blog how I felt like Mary Tyler Moore finishing the NaBloPoMo and Melissa was right on it and created the badge---which I love!

It's fun to meet new folks in this virtual world and I'm happy to have met you both today through NaBloPoMo! Thank you both for stopping by and leaving comments here after I visited your Blogs.

I'm glad you found some "thoughts" that resonated. I love quotes and have them posted all over my house. I used to post a quote each day in the classroom (until I retired in 2001). I encouraged my students to copy them in their notebook and share the ideas with family and friends throughout the day. When I started my Blogs, quotes in the sidebar seemed perfect :)

Surrendered Scribe
Thanks for the compliments and for clearing up my confusion. I do like to get things "right" ... though I'm trying to surrender MY perfectionist within. LOL

Hugs and blessings to you both,

Melissa said...

Well if you *really* like to get things right... lol!

You have my URL correct but the name of the blog is "Part Of Everything" (no "A" at the beginning) Other people have made the same mistake (including me at first! :D )

I need to find an easier blog name for people to remember at some point but all the good ones seemed to have been taken! Next time I may use a word randomizer. That's how "Whopping Cornbread" came up with her blog name and how great is that!? :D

storyteller said...

Thanks for the info about your Blog name. I'll fix it and try to remember, but when you get to be my age ... "sometimers" strikes. LOL

You might enjoy a post on my other site (Small Reflections). There's a link in the sidebar just below the "kindblog" badge. I published it early in November with a title like "Oh My Lord, there's so much to do!" and in it I give the words to one of my favorite songs on the subject of perfection.
Hugs and blessings,

Thanks for stopping by Gratitude Practices, Storyteller. It's always nice to meet like-minded souls.

Blessed be!

I'm glad you ventured out to find me here and left a comment. I'm surprised each day with serendiptious connections in this "virtual world" and wish I'd listened to all those friends who've been telling me for years I belonged out here in the Blogosphere because I might have met all you interesting Bloggers so much sooner. :)
Hugs and blessings,

Monique Kleinhans said...

Hello Storyteller! These badges are really cute! (although I have to admit my ignorance on what Nablopomo is...but congrats that you completed it none-the-less! :)

ps...it's still snowing :)

storyteller said...

Thanks for returning to visit and leaving a comment.
FYI -- NaBloPoMo stands for National Blog Posting Month and as I understand it is an outgrowth of NaNoWriMo which stands for National Novel Writing Month (something I skipped this year but may try in the future). Being new to the Blogosphere, I figured 30 posts in 30 days on two Blogs was enough of a challenge for 2007.

If you click on the badges in the post, they'll take you to the NaBloPoMo site where you'll find lots more info. Actually, I found it by clicking on a NaBloPoMo badge on someone else's site several weeks ago :)
Hugs and blessings,

Hey, well done for finishind the month! It feels like such an achievement for me too!

And your blog is lovely, I'm sure I'll be coming by more often.

Suzie Ridler said...

I totally love that Hiro badge and congratulations for making it through November post challenging month!

storyteller said...

Thanks for stopping by and leaving a comment. Congratulations on finishing NaBloPoMo yourself! I took a swing by your Blog and left a few comments for you there.

Sacred Suzie,
Thanks for stopping by again. I appreciate your feedback and congratulations. Blogging is so new to me (read so much fun) that posting daily didn't seem difficult. Of course when my friends return from their RVing in 10 days, it may get harder to find the time for all these "virtual explorations" in the Blogosphere. It's fun to make so many new friends :)

I love this Hiro badge too. Melissa created it and I'm grateful she shared it and the Mary Tyler Moore badge too. I need to learn how to make them myself.

Congratulations on surviving NaBloPoMo!

Hugs and blessings,
