When blogging began, I didn’t know a thing about it. What was a blog? How do you write one? Who are all these people writing blogs? Then I started reading some blogs, Posie Gets Cozy, Pioneer Woman, Attic 24, Henhouse, Tales From the Coop Keeper and others and fell in love with blogging. I wanted to do it too, so one day I set up my own little blog and started to write. It was about two years ago this summer. I wrote and wrote and learned how to post pictures and wrote some more. Then people started reading it and it amazed me. Then, something horrible happened. David was doing something with the pictures on our computer and for some reason, all the pictures on my blog went away. I almost cried. Then my son set me up with this blog and I am merrily going on my way writing and posting again. He tells me this site will hold more pictures. That’s good, because the last time David checked we had over ten thousand pictures backed up on our computers! You can still read my old blog called I Love My Dogs which I changed to Snicklefritz later, but there won’t be many pictures.
Sometimes I wonder about the people who read my blog. They are all over the world now, which kind of boggles my mind. This little country farm girl who likes to write has people from other countries reading her blog. Hi, all you people. I am so glad you are here. I really wish I could meet every one of you.
I wonder about where you live, what you do, are you married or single? Do you have children? What’s your day like? Do you get up every morning and go to a job? Are some of you stay at home mothers? Or fathers? Do you live in the city or the country? Some of you live in the some of the most beautiful places in the world. Places I will never see except in my imagination. Do you appreciate just how beautiful and wonderful are the places where you live? Sometimes we get so busy with our lives, we forget to look around us at the beauty that is right under our noses. I live in a beautiful state in the United States. My husband and I have traveled to nearly all fifty states and I am always happy to return to Indiana.
Do you travel? Or are you pretty much happy with where you are and don’t go many places? I want to travel to England. I have always wanted to go to England. Some of my ancestors came from there so that is probably the reason why I am so drawn to it. But then I think of exotic places like India and Nepal(where a friend and her family are now doing mission work) and I think I would love to see places like that. It’s a beautiful world we live in. Are you living where there is strife happening? Some places in the world are not very happy places to live right now. Why do men have to be so bad? I see people suffering in other countries and it just makes me know how blessed I am that I live in a country where, at least, I feel safe. I pray for all of you who may be suffering under very poor conditions in your countries right now.
I picture all of you in my mind sitting at your computers, reading my blog and I just want to say thank you. There are thousands, if not millions, of blogs out there and you chose to read mine this day. You are a blessing to me. I hope your day today will be happy and blessed. God loves you and I hope you know Him. I believe in God and His Son, Jesus Christ who came to this earth two thousand years ago. He lived and preached and was crucified on the cross for every single one of us. He took our sins upon Himself. He arose again and sits at the right hand of God, His father. One day He will return to judge us all. He’s my personal Savior. I don’t know how you believe, but I wanted you to know what I believe and that God does love you. He loved you enough to send His only Son to die for your sins. How great a love is that? It’s hard to comprehend.
Well, I just wanted to thank all of you today. You are very special people to me. Sometimes we don’t know how we can affect others, but I hope my blog makes you happy sometimes, makes you think sometimes and sometimes it probably bores you to death, but I will keep writing because I love to write and even if no one was reading this blog, I would still write it for my children and grandchildren to read one day so that they will know their mother and grandmother better.
Have a great day all you people. I love you all and pray for the best for all of you. Bye.
