Thankful for Our Little Blog Community

Ralph and I have been discussing “blog's” quite a lot lately.

Definition of the word Blog: *a regularly updated website or web page, typically one run by an individual or small group, that is written in an informal or conversational style.
We seem to have found some very wonderful places to visit and read. I am amazed at how attached I have grown to this little community we are building. There are interesting stories, humorous tales of life, touching saga's, hard facts and all sorts of incredibly helpful and sometimes even disturbing information.

We can follow sheep around their pasture, learn how to make colorful sauerkraut, see how to butcher a goat or even just smile at stories of a busy day gone awry. Ralph and I found the gas range of our dreams through a blog we love [yes thats you Frank and Fern]. I am going to be getting some wonderful roving as soon as we are moved, from Sandra at Clearwater Farm. The kindness of a big heart shows up at 'Begin Again' and the recipes from 'Mennonite Girls Can Cook' are pure heaven! Framboise Manor is simply a delight!

When Ralph gets home he has started to ask if I learned anything from the blogs while he was at work.

It is really quite wonderful to find people that have so much to offer, people that we can share some of our experiences and knowledge with. I have become so thankful for what Ralph and I consider “our” blogs!

Thank you all for your time and effort, your honest ways of getting your points across, your observations and ideas, your sharing of hopes and dreams and views of the world around you.

Yes we are very thankful for this community!
