Sacred Life Sunday - Reflecting

Blogging (and other) Blessings

1. Receiving the "You Make My Day" award from Annie, sharing it with others, and receiving it a 2nd time from Karen so that I'll be able to share it again with others who make MY day ... something I intend to do early next week.

2. Watching an exciting series of highly competitive matches during the past two weeks of the Australian Open culminating in surprising semi-finalists in both the women's and men's draw.

3. Hitting the Milestone of 100 posts on each of my blogs and beginning a list of 101 Things About Me while reflecting on what I've accomplished and what I plan to do next in this virtual world.

4. Discovering new friends in the Blogosphere and introducing old friends to one another.

5. Receiving two other awards from fellow bloggers to proudly display and to pass along: The Blessin' Buddha from Mary P. Jones at A Room of Mama's Own and the "Your Blog's a Treasure" award from Sandy at Momisodes. I'll share these soon as well.

6. Hearing from an old friend several times recently on the telephone and planning to meet for lunch next week to catch up.

7. Connecting with my Writer's Retreat Buddy to celebrate progress and encourage one another on our next challenges.

Thought for the Day

but in the dialectic between the two."

this is a great gratitude posting.I warms my heart when I read them on any one's sites.
Being greatful for what you have or accumplished is a great and I thank God for the things that I'm greatful for.it may take me quite a while to reach 100 blog postings and that is OK,the most important thing is being alive to make any posting at all and being able to post a comment is gratifiying as well.
Any one who knows me either in person or who have visited me st http://mjgolch.blogspot.com Knows that I am greatful for many things.

I love how easy it is to feel grateful for our lives, when we stop and actually think about it!

Yertle – I love gratitude posts too. It’s wonderful to stop and think about the blessings in our lives. I write 5 things daily in a journal before sleep … formed the habit more than a decade ago after Sarah Ban Breathnach’s 1st book on Gratitude (though the title eludes me right now). Life changes when we alter our focus.

Sandy – Thanks! I appreciate sincerely the Treasure Award you passed along to me and had fun deciding with whom to share it myself at Small Reflections yesterday.

Eve – Thank you! What a nice thought to share :) So when can we expect YOUR list?

Mike – I so appreciate you visiting so often and sharing your thoughts so consistently. You may be surprised how quickly 100 posts accumulate on your blog. If you post daily it will happen in less than 4 months! I’ve got your blog in my reader … and even though I’ve not left many comments, I do enjoy what you share there so keep up the fine effort!

Karen – Yes … stopping to take it all in IS key isn’t it? It’s so easy to miss out when we’re rushing hither and yon trying to do too much … and yes I’m listening to myself as I type this. LOL

Thanks again everybody. Finding comments is always a delightful surprise and I hope you all check the little box to receive my responses in your email box. If not, please start doing so. I wish Blogger gave us information like Typepad and Wordpress that includes the real email address with comments instead of “Blogger@NoRelpy.com … Perhaps we do get what we pay for (or don’t).
Hugs and blessings,
