Ultimate Blog Party 2011

Welcome all!

This is my second blog party and I hope it's a huge success for all.  Success, meaning I hope everyone makes lots of new blogger friends!

I am not a very consistent blogger yet, but trying to get there.  I do book reviews and write when I'm really passionate about something, as opposed to sharing my everyday life.  I don't have children at home and my husband works out of state, so that leaves me and the dogs.  They don't talk much...I'm trying, but can't quite get them to (just kidding - I haven't gone off the deep end yet).  My 83 year old father lives with me, so that makes things pretty interesting at times.

I am a Christian, stay at home wife, with fibromyalgia and chronic pain.  I would love to work out in the world again, but I don't think that is God's calling for me right now.  My husband and I have been married 24 years and look forward to many, many more.  We love spending time with family and friends, and each other.

I'm looking forward to the spring and warmer weather so I can plant flowers in containers for the yard to add color to our Cedar Rapids, IA home.  We didn't have a bad winter, not a lot of snow, but still ready for the warmer weather!  There are always more activities in the spring, summer and fall months, too.

I'll try to do a better job of sharing this year, maybe I'll pick up the camera this spring...

Happy Blog Hopping!!

Until next time,
Keep it from the heart,

Hi, Nan. I'm stopping by from the UBP - I'm #73 (Being Made New - http://tinahollenbeck.blogspot.com) on the Christian list. Very glad to read a bit about you...and hope you might be able to stop in at my place, too. :^)

Following you from UBP. I love the warmer weather, too....so I can decorate my balcony with pretty flowers (and cilantro).

It is nice to meet you, Nan, through ubp. I am sorry to hear that you deal with chronic pain and illness. Glad to hear your dogs don't talk. :)

Hi Nanette, thanks for visiting my blog. I love the butterfly in your header. So sweet!
My mom has fibromyalgia as well. It's such a hard road. Hope you're blessed and encouraged along the way.

Nice to "meet" you at the UBP!

I also have fibromyalgia and chronic pain. So sorry you have to deal with this as well.

God bless!

The Lord is the stronghold of my life - of whom shall I be afraid? Psalm 27:1
