Giving Thanks ~ The Village That Raises My Blog

Today I took a moment to marvel at the goodness of all of the people that support and help me in my blogging. Recently I’ve been going through a roller coaster of “Why bother?” and “OMG, today was an awesome day! How did I do that?”

Well, how did I do that? Obviously I think very hard about the content I write. I obsess over it a bit. Well, more than a bit. I share it on social media and any other way that I can. But I am a little blip in the world of technology. There are plenty of people out there offering advice, why would anyone choose me to listen to?

They listen because I have an amazing group of people that help to spread my word!

Who Is In This Village?

1. My family

Sure they think I’m a bit nuts. It’s okay, I pretty much agree with them. In this “simple life” I am actually doing things harder than they would be if I just followed the norm. I take on a million different tasks that the average person wouldn’t think to do. But I know that they love me, support me and brag about how crazy (in a good way) I am.

2. My Husband



Well, yes Nick is my family, but he’s more than that. He gets to see the crazy full force and he still chooses me. He helps in my homesteading en devours and listens to me talk about stats, and groups and all the things that I get excited about . In reality I very well could be boring him out of his mind, but he doesn’t let it show. He lets me know he’s proud. And when the next crazy project comes around he does what he can to get it done.

3. Fellow Bloggers

I have been fortunate enough to stumble upon some truly amazing fellow bloggers! They have been so supportive and I feel like I tell them thank you so often that it may seem hollow. Let me tell you that it is by no means hollow. The tips they’ve given me and they way they read and share my work, adding input on what they think, are invaluable! Honestly, they are invaluable!

4. You!

I was going through stats, (yes those pesky numbers that bore Nick) and I was awed at the people reading what I have to say! Thank you for taking the time to read what I have to say, thinking that what I offer is worth something.


With out this village, I couldn’t do this. I’d have to just get a journal.

I don’t want to do that. I love this blog. It’s not perfect. It’s ever evolving. But so am I, and again I thank everyone of the people in my village. I am truly humbled.


What are your thanks? How are you blessed?
