What you’re doing matters

I saw this video clip on Colour Me There last week and just fell in love with what was said… So – two things, if you’re a mom… open the video clip and listen the the words, you’ll love it, and secondly, pop over to Colour Me There‘s blog – she’s my blogging hero, the reason I started blogging, she loves colour, she shaves her hair to support kids with cancer, she’s a real real mom and put’s it perfectly when she describes her blog as “bright and happy and colourful. But what I like to share most of all is happy.”

Blog Love

13 Oct

Since starting my blogging journey I’ve gathered a number of blog sites that I visit on a daily, weekly or monthly basis… Or when I see an RSS feed coming in!

I couldn’t decide whether to list  all the blogs I visit, or just a few and so decided to list mostly the South African mamma’s that I’ve come to know over the past months. I’m always amazed at how you can really start to feel like you ‘get to know’ these mama’s from their blog posts and of course tweets. I’ve laughed and cried reading so many of the posts, stood in admiration of single mom’s who not only raise their children single handedly, but who then manage to fit in blogging on top of it. I’ve judged some of the moms, and I’ve wished that I could be some of their ‘best’ friends in real life… They will of course be some that I miss on the first draft of this post, but I will continue to add  to this post as I go along this blogging journey and  meet new friends and find new inspiration.

Thanks to you all for including us in a part of your lives…
