This Blog O' Mine (TTT137)

It's Thursday- the day I focus on gratitude. For 137 weeks now I have been posting my thankfulness each Thursday.

Today is also the kick-off of the 3rd Annual Blog Hop Carnival at Pensieve Me.

What is the BlogHop Carnival?
The blog hop was created as an at-home opportunity for bloggers to meet and greet during BlogHer's annual conference. Bloggers are invited to write a short introductory post about themselves and their blog to introduce themselves and broaden their online community. Intro posts are linked to the Blog Hop site and participants are encouraged to hop around and "meet" as many new friends as they're able to!


Gravity of Motion

Why Gravity of Motion? The reason for my blog title is that I find busyness heavy. When I am involved in too many activities (even great ones), I cannot excel at anything. Constant busyness weighs me down. I struggle with this constantly. My blog title reminds me that constant activity can be a burden. This post explains why I started my blog: The Weight of Constant Activity

Listening, Learning and Laughing

I write about what I hear and learn in every day situations. That includes a little bit of fun from my kids and lessons from Motherhood, recipes I enjoy, challenges and triumphs with food allergies and asthma, and musings about faith and life lessons. I share what I hear and what I learn. I share what makes me laugh.

I write for the fun of it. I write because it's therapeutic for me. I write because I love words.

I ramble. I speculate. I document life.


I'm Thankful

Thank you for stopping by. I am thankful for this little space of the internet. Blogging is what I am thankful for this Thursday. This is my Thursday Thanks Tank.

Hi Jane Anne! Thanks for hopping by my blog; it's great to get a chance to hop your way. I love the premise of your blog. We let life get so chaotic that we don't even enjoy it; it's good to slow down sometimes. That's precisely what I'm doing today, hopping from blog to blog and meeting great people along the way!

Hey I'm so glad you stopped by my blog and I really appreciate your comment. I was pleased to discover when I clicked over that I had already found and loved your blog through TerriLynn a couple days ago! I even forwarded a link to my BFF who is struggling with food allergies. Her blog is: http://babyfoodsteps.wordpress.com/

Hi Jane Anne,
Thanks for coming to by Blog from the Blog Hop. I came by and could not stop reading.....wow, you are a very brave and strong woman. My son has Asthma but last year we had a child in his class just like your son, Asthma with life threatening allergies. I was so glad to see all rally around him and try to make it safe for him. We need people like u to get the word out with personal stories that make you cry. Good Luck

Oh, at last, another blogger who isn't an obsessive Twilight fan ;) I tried to get on board that train, but yeah, it is just not for me. The Help is an amazing book though, I agree. Thanks for stopping by my blog!
