The strange world of blogging

Daddy wasn't sure about his son being dressed in a crochet sweater and toque, but I thought it was very cute (and even cuter when he was sleeping in it). Yesterday we went to Regina to do some shopping after church. I thought it would be a fun family outing and I had several things I wanted to accomplish. Kellen was not in his best form though beginning from our first stop at Superstore (who does enjoy shopping in that place I guess!?) So, we resorted to taking turns running into a store while the other continued to drive around to keep him sleeping.

I have been thinking about blogging lately. A friend of mine commented on how she felt like she has been in touch with me lately because she checks my blog. Strange thing though, its only one way communication unless you post a comment! But, I realize how many blogs I check without leaving a comment. In fact, I now check, through other links, people that I hardly know. Sometimes I feel like I'm reading a personal diary that I shouldn't be. However, there are so many people that are so inspiring. Considering my limited one way communication with my son, it seems to be my new social life to check blogs. I should be having lunch, doing yesterdays dishes, vaccuming, or doing laundry...or the many other things that need attention. However, here I am checking blogs and posting. Anyhow, I have decided to try to not let it become an obsession and to try to have some face to face communication with people. I will also comment on blogs. And, if you check my blog, (that's great, you are not reading a personal diary) but please leave a comment, I would love to hear from you.

I've been reading and enjoying and thought I would add a quirk we've found with blogging. The Lord has brought meaningful relationships into our life through it. I would definitely say that Brian and my lives are being changed as we find people with the same desires and heart about the poor, ministry... Brian has personally met at least 5 people because of his blog, all with an affinity to us, 3 of whom are in Abilene! This seems to be becoming our true spiritual home. All because of blogs! I'm not sure I'm 100% for that way, but that is what God seems to be bringing us for now. WEIRD huh?

Hi Janet,
I love seeing your updates, Kellen is so cute! I've started checking blogs a lot lately myself, but I thought I had to sign up for an account to comment. Now that I know I don't, I'll comment sometimes.

How much gas did you spend on keeping Kellen asleep? Must have been a rough day. But it's kewl to hear what you have to say day to day.

Andrew, well its a good thing we drive a diesel golf, otherwise it would have been an expensive afternoon. Glad to hear you enjoy the blog.

It is such a gift to see and hear of all that is going on. Kellen is so precious and I find that I too go in search of news from lives of my friends and family. So keep it coming!
