I am only very new at this blogging hobby but felt I would like to post on how wonderful so far blogging has been for me. Today I did not have too much free time and this evening I decided to read through some blogs that took my eye and I must say running through all the themes I read about there was for me a current of goodness and hope running through each one I read. One blogger reminded me of how simple gestures of kindness can change someone’s day and when I read this it got me thinking if that persons day was changed for the good and their mood lifted to gratitude then every person they encountered that day would also probably benefit from that goodness and so the circle would continue.
Another blogger shared their gratitude for the simple pleasure of being in a position to nurture her children and watch their development with a heart full of gratitude for being able to do this and also acknowledging that not all mothers would have the luxury of doing this owing to all the different circumstances that sometimes make simple things like feeding children difficult. By highlighting the joy of being able to take care of her children and also make her reader aware that this joy is not always accessible to some parents because of many different things including poverty sickness mental health issues etc she managed to relate to us her readers a deep gratitude for simple things in life to be grateful for that we may at times overlook and in the same breadth she also made us gently conscious of our responsibility to others.
So yes for me blogging and reading others posts has opened a whole new world to me and so far I have not only been able to enjoy writing my own posts but I have been nourished and uplifted by posts from others and for this I am grateful.
