Bloggers are Amazing

Good Morning Friends, and indeed I can say that and BELIEVE in it also.

If you prefer not to read my personal junked up mess LOL!! Go to the bottom of this post and please read about how TRUE and SWEET and WONDERFUL and KIND others can be when the need arrives in a Bloggers life for some HELP!!!

ME post!!!
Let me share a little of why I feel that way, I myself do not have friends, In that I mean those that I spend time with, visit with on the phone etc. someone to go shopping with to laugh and enjoy good times with. I am a loner so to speak, I have not always been this way, when I was a single person, and working a job, I had lots of friends. I just made a move away from them all, met and married my hubby and since then I Have not had friends to visit with go places with, share with etc.

BUT I am blessed with many online friends, and I truly feel that, I have had so many emails lately as to where I have been and how am I. Yes I have been silent recently, Life just sometimes throws us those curve balls, YEP the ones that hit you in the face and HURT!! But hey I am okay I am a strong person, and I refuse to let anyone's hateful ways ruin that for me, so how do you handle things? Do you fly off the handle get upset, let things provoke you to a point of blurting it out? I don't, sometimes I think it would help. But I know it won't change things, so I will not share and say things I will regret later. I will contain myself and get over it LOL.

A very Wise and Sweet lady once told me *If you have nothing kind to say it is best not to say anything at all* And *If you allow someone to get you down, someone to tear your heart up, then you can only Blame one person and that is YOURSELF*

Just recently, and I will confess that I all too well know the worry that our blogging Friend is encountering right now. One Blogger spoke out for a little help, and I admire her, she is a Sweet gal and she so deserves some assistance. So another blogger started a Silent Auction, Please go over to Traci's blog
*****CLICK HERE***** Several other bloggers have jumped in with donations to help as well, There is a wonderful group of Items to be won by the highest bidder, But above that the satisfaction of knowing that you are purchasing the items and all of the funds will go to Help Someone!! And if you have never known that feeling that unselfish feeling of doing something to benefit someone elses needs, Oh I can not describe how wonderful it is. I could not bid when I saw the post because funds are extremely tight for me right now, as I am sure that most of you are experiencing as well with Christmas.

If you can not bid, no problem but you can share you can get the word out to many others that may not see it otherwise, that in itself is a way to contribute to the need. So please do go to ****York Mountain primitives**** And share the link with everyone you know. I have donated a handmade item myself for the cause, and my contribution is small but full of LOVE

And while you are out with you last minute running that last stressful weekend to purchase a gift, do me a favor, If you only throw a few pennies in the red buckets at stores, those add up. Or if you see a family that looks like they could really use some love at this time of the year, Stop and consider how fortunate you are, I see so many complain about funds and how tight things are, that share all the time all the purchases that they make, That have Christmas Trees with several gifts under them, if you have never experienced a Christmas without gifts, A week without funds for groceries etc. A need to go for medical care with no insurance and no money *Only to be shunned at a doctors office* then you are truly a Blessed person.
Because many of these folks that are hurting so bad, many that do not know what or how they will get by,
They still believe in HOPE they still have FAITH and many of them never complain!!

No KIND gesture, even to say Merry Christmas to a STRANGER, no simple ACT of kindness can measure up more then in the heart of someone who honestly needs!!! A True gift is not wrapped in fancy packaging a TRUE gift is not Tied with a pretty bow, A True gift costs no money 
A True gift is a simple act of kindness that may lift the spirits of someone who is hurting

Sorry this is long and I am babbling on, wishing you all a Wonderful Weekend


  1. I so wish I could be there to (((HUG))) you. I love you Brenda...I don't think I have EVER known anyone like you that has so little but GIVES so much.I pray that someday you will be re-paid 10 fold for all you GIVE to others so unselfishly and from the bottom of that BIG heart of yours...I am humbled to call you my friend even though there are so many miles between us......I had wanted this to be a BIG surprise for you.......BUT......I sent you some Christmas MAGIC well over a week ago and was wondering why I hadn't heard from you.....yesterday I had a message on my machine from UPS in OK saying they had my package to you and they can't deliver it....I have been on the phone w them all morning trying to resolve WHY?????? I believe I have your right address but unless you have run away with out me????? Please send me an email w your address........or I'm gonna be on the next plane out there trying to find that box of CHRISTMAS MAGIC for you!!!!

  2. Hi Brenda,
    What a wonderfu heartfelt post.
    I loves ya sweetie.
    I was amazed this morning when I check Tracis blog and saw the out pouring of donations!!
    And what amazing goodies they are.

    Hugs to you my friend,

  3. What a beautiful post, you are always so generous and kind! Thank you for being a part of such a wonderful act of kindness. Wishing you a Merry Christmas! Hugs, Lecia

  4. Truly wonderful post, my friend....and so well said. I'm sorry that you had to experience whatever it was that made you "retreat" - seems like there is quite a bit of that going around these days - but I truly think it helps to realize that it says more about the needs of the hurtful person than the one who has been harmed. Wishing you healing though - and sending you big cyber hugs.

    And, yes - it is amazing what Traci and all of the others involved - including you - are doing. Aside from the help going to the very worthy friend, it goes a long way in restoring faith in the kindness and caring of others.

    Wishing you a joy and blessing-filled weekend....Smiles & Hugs ~ Robin

  5. I think it is a wonderful idea, and a nice way to help one of our online friends.


  6. Hi Brenda,
    What a great thing to do for a fellow blogger. Love your donation creation.
    I am wishing you a Happy Holiday and a fabulous New Year!!

  7. Brenda, I guess there seems to be a rash of unkind people in cyber land. You are most generous with your talent and please don't let a few bad people hurt your spirit. I also want to thank you for your generous donation to Traci's auction~ I know my sil will appreciate it.
    Blessing to you and a Very Merry Christmas.

  8. You are so sweet for being part of this Brenda. You have so much going on as do others and to take the time to care about our fellow blogger's hardship is in the true spirit of
    Christmas. I hope you heal from your
    hurt soon. You are a treasure to me Brenda to have as a friend.
    Merry Christmas,

  9. Brenda, I'm so sorry that you're hurting right now. I'm a bit of a loner too, so I know how tough it is when you're feeling knocked down and need a good friend to help build you back up. Big, big hugs to you, Sweetie! You can always email me if you need a sounding know where to find me. ;o)


  10. Wow, guess I've missed a bit the last few days and I'm sitting here with tears running down my old face. Tears of sadness knowing the hurtful and unkind acts that take place and tears for a friend in need and wanting to make it all better. Tears for the joy that comes from knowing that I am among so many wonderful loving and caring people, most of whom have never met that want to help another "friend."
    Brenda, I don't know you personally, but what I have come to know of you since following you and being a customer, you are a most loving and generous person that anyone would be proud to call a friend. I know I am!
    hugz to you,

  11. Me and you Brenda :o) I'm a loner too, no physical friends, just wonderful online friends. This is a most challenging time of the year for most of us. Hang in there and keep the faith. Make things happy in your life and space and forget about the bad ogres out there, because it's not you with the problem, it's them.
    Hugs & love! Carol and Tim

  12. I haven't been able to keep up with blogging (or anything lately LOL) and just learned of the silent auction - thanks for donating one of your wonderful creations and for your words on acts of kindness - so many are hurting right now. Wishing you peace for YOUR heart, Brenda! ~*~Lisa

  13. Brenda~

    A very thought provoking post indeed. Very well said. Love your donation to a very worthy cause. The best gifts are gifts given from the heart. Bless you. I am so glad I "discovered" blogging~so many kind & generous people hang out here.

    Have a Merry Christmas~Becky

  14. Dear Brenda, boy, you hit the nail on the head with your me Post paragraph, I can so relate!

    This time of the year is always difficult for me so I tend to "hibernate" but I wanted to wish you a very Merry Christmas and all the best for 2012.


  15. I can't believe how this community loves and cherishes each other. It has been a pleasure getting to know everyone and each day I am more impressed with the talents, and kindness, and actions of others. -Steph-

  16. Oh Brenda, I am humbled by what you wrote here...I hope more of us take heed to what you said and help someone even if it's just a greeting or a big smile. It does feel good.
    Merry Christmas
