I am Thankful For...







I am thankful for... Angie at Children in the Corn and Linda at A Truckers Wife.



They both presented me with the butterfly award. I am also thankful for the Hot Blog award handed over from my other blogging friend, Grey Wolf at Two Old Cripples.


THANKS AGAIN!



If I wasn't so stinking pooped and stuffed from today's events I'd pass these along BUT since I like to break rules I will just end it in saying YOU ALL have wonderful blogs!



There are many blogs I read although I do not have time to visit them daily. I do catch up and read back whenever I get a chance. I read an array of blogs from homesteading, hunting, self-sufficiency, animal loving, parenting, and even some that are somewhat religious (although I am not the least bit religious per se. I do believe in prayer and God) I just don't get into following what one group feels is the "right way". I have my own beliefs and my own way of doing things. I do not need to go to church and kneel on the benches when I can go in my back garden and kneel on soft dirt while reflecting on my life. To me the outdoors is my chapel. Don't mean to rant, just my opinion! (Too many years in catholic school) What I am getting at is that we all are so different but we all bring something to the table and there is so much to learn from one another. That is what I love most about blogging!


Since I started blogging in March I have done and tried so many new things. I contribute it to the new path I've taken in my my life along with all the new things I've learned from my blogging friends . I just want to say... Thanks for being REAL. Thanks for the SUPPORT you all offer in hardships. Thanks for the ADVICE you give and Thanks for sharing all of your great IDEAS.


There are many more things I am thankfull for, my family, my friends, this farm, my health, but I share that with you throughout the year and today I thought would be a good time to show my gratitute to my fellow bloggers.



On a final note, THE WINNERS of my giveaway are.......SARAH so girl you best be going to get your ears re-pierced because those fish earrings will be headed your way via snail mail and MANDIE those colorful earring are all yours but there will be a slight delay as I am waiting for my headpins to arrive. If you both leave me a comment with your e-mail addresses I will contact you asap.

I too love reading different types of blogs. I find many interesting, funny, ispriring and they jsut lift me up. Hope you had a great thanksgiving! I enjoyed your thankful list. I feel we all have so much to be thankful for. ;)

warren said...

It may be a little cliche, but I do enjoy the way most people just "put themselves out there" in their blogs. I sort of feel like I know a lot of people (w/o even ever seeing their pictures) at a level deeper than I know the people I work with. That sounds dumb I know but so many blogs are more transparent than people would be in real life. Anyhow, I appreciate your blog as well!

HJust read yoiur post about sometimes folowing religious blogs but not being a religious person etc etc... I feel exactly the same way (I mean EXACTLY) so I was pleased to read your post. I think I enjoy reading religious blogs because they basically embrace home and hearth ideals as do I . Also they can have lots of children which a large part of me would like to have done, Or it could just be that a pychic once told me I was a nun in a past life!! Anyway having just discovered your blog Im real keen to have a browsew in due course.

I have learned so much from the blogging world too. I really enjoy seeing everyones different blogs.

GreyWolf said...

Kim, I wholeheartedly agree with your religious viewpoint. As another "brought up Catholic", I too have found most of my outdoor serenity more religious than any day in church. Especially reflecting on the beauty of God's creations while sitting in the woods hunting or on the riverbank fishing.
I thoroughly enjoy your blogs and look forward to reading them and I have to agree with Warren.
BTW your welcome for the award. It was as much an honor to give as recieve.

Country Girl said...

THANKS FOR ALL YOUR WONDERFUL COMMENTS, GREATLY APPRECIATED!

WARREN, THAT IS TRUE PEOPLE TO PUT THEMSELVES OUT THERE INCLUDING MYSELF. I PUT MYSELF OUT THERE NO MATTER WHERE I AM WORK OR HOME. I AM AN OPEN BOOK! WHAT YOU SEE IS WHAT YOU GET!

CC & GW GLAD YOU AGREE WITH MY WAY OF THINKING.

DON, THAT MEANS A LOT COMING FROM YOU!

Sarah said...

Whee!!! lol I'm so excited - those earrings are beautiful!

My 4 yr old is excited too. She's been bugging me to get my ears re-pierced for awhile now and I just haven't had the right motivation.

My email is hopelesscook at yahoo dot com.

Thank you!
