Rambling through an "acceptance" speech.


I want to come here and say things that are profound and meaningful. I want my posts to resonate with meaning and insight. It's hard for me to post when I don't think I can live up to those expectations (which I'm totally aware I put on myself).


My last couple of posts fell into a provided category.. I just don't feel that creative lately, left to my own devices. Oh, speaking of my last couple of posts -


I was so honored to be Lynnette's latest "Getting to Know You" featured blogger. Lynnette was one of the first bloggers I found and followed after losing Seth. I appreciate her friendship a lot. Mind you, she featured me with GRANOLA! I hope that wasn't supposed to be a statement about me. Ha ha. I appreciated all the lovely visits from Lynnette's readers.


And with that "acceptance speech", one of my kidlets has just asked for the "bathroom bucket". I should go make sure he/she is okay.
Updated to add: Above mentioned child (nameless to protect the innocent ill) writhed and moaned on the bathroom floor for awhile, ulitmately throwing up. This morning un-named child is feeling MUCH better. Yay!

I'm so glad you have been working on your blog (and you've been WORKING!). You have so much to say, and since your experience with Seth was so much more recent than ours with Jeffrey, many of your posts remind me of things I'd like to share.

Don't ever think that what you write isn't relevant; it is for SOMEone :)

I also hope the bathroom bucket didn't mean a major catastrophe!!!

Oh the joys of mommy, and being able to provide the bathroom bucket. Thanks for bringing a smile to my face today.

Keep writing dear one, the world is reading.

Blessings from Costa Rica,

You know, I feel this ALL this time. I struggle to feel even the TINIEST bit creative...I feel like a blobby blogger (if that makes sense..)...

But DON'T stop!!! Your story impacts and encourages, even when you don't realize it...

Love,
Jess
