Your Posts Revisited

   A few days ago I asked if you would write which one of your posts was your favorite or which one sticks out in your head as being very important to you, funny, or has sentimental meaning to you. Thank you! I read them. A few made me cry, because they dealt with loss and the love that they shared. one  described a journey and coupled it with the lyrics to one of my favorite songs. One made me laugh out loud. One made me sigh with its sweetness. One educated me in something that I have always wondered about and one made me really really hungry!


Darlene over at ---->Things I'll Forget by Tomorrow  gave me a link to a hilarious post. I swear I could see myself in that situation too! Embarrassing moments are sort of My specialty and I'm so glad I'm not the only one with outrageous emabarrassing moments! Very funny! Here is the link--->
No, I am not trying to steal this car!

Anthony Stemke at ---> Grits and Groceries said that he couldn't submit a post because his blog is about cooking and recipes. He post some yummy recipes and the pictures are awesome. I was instantly drawn to his post below, because I love Etouffee and this post made my mouth water!

Beth submitted two posts . The first one was from her blog on
 Wordpress---> Beth Marie 
She wrote it on the day Her Beloved Husband passed away.
-->Today I Lost My Best Friend
and her other blog---> Day by Day with Beth Marie   
 her post titled---> Thoughts to live by   is awesome I say Amen to that!

Ginny over at---> Let your light shine  has an great blog. She has a great sense of humor and sees the blessing even in the tiniest of things. I love her pictures and how she ties in everything with scripture at the end. She sees God's beauty everywhere and that is a blessing indeed.
These are her favorite posts--->Ask The Ants and Tears in a Bottle

Miss Sally...(Sorry but I have to always call Teachers "Miss" ;o) )
Her blog---> Retired English Teacher Is sweet and honest and loving and giving and sometimes you wish you could just reach out and give her a huge hug.
 Her post---> Loss and Grief in the Technological Age Made me see technology in a whole new light. Her strength never seizes to amaze me.

Becca over at--->My Life wrote that she couldn't decide on a post. First, I love her blog secondly I love her poetry. It's sweet and sad and scary and mad and loving. She is one of the most giving Bloggers I've come across. She has a lovely personality that shines through. She's a Disney girl and I LOVE that!!!So I hope you don't mind Becca , but I chose my favorite....
I know you will love it too.--->Sleeping

Robyn at--->Life by Chocolate: Robyn Alana Engel's Blog 
Chose this post as her favorite--->California Dreamin' ~ A Repost
I think its wonderfully written piece of her journey to her new life. I met her through the A to Z challenge and I enjoy her style of writing. Its witty and strong.

Thank you all for submitted your post links. I have read all your posts and left comments and I have to say that I loved them all even when they were so touching that they made me cry. You are all amazing writers and amazing Bloggers! 

This weekend someone asked me what was it about blogging that was so interesting or fun. They asked it in the form of a statement rather than a question...thereby demonstrating a  sort of non- interest in this side of my life. All I said was that I loved it. But its much more than that. Here in this world of posts and comments is where I have found a deeper love of writing again. Reading people's reactions to words and sentences that were merely thoughts that floated around in my head is intoxicating to my soul and fills my heart with joy.  Thank you all for being a part of that! Blessings, Joanne
