This week (well, every week, but especially on this milestone week), I'm also thankful for my bloggy friend Jane Anne over at Gravity of Motion. She is celebrating 100 weeks of Thursday Thanks posts today. She's how I got started with Thursday Thanks, she taught me how to put a link into blog comments, and she's a fellow mom to a PA kid. Each week, I look forward to seeing her Thursday Thanks (coffee usually makes an appearance), and I look forward to sharing mine because I know she'll stop by with a sweet comment. Writing this list helps me stay mindful of all of the gifts I have in my life, and gives me an opportunity to reflect on them during a few quiet moments when I write.
Aside from Thursday Thanks, Jane Anne has written some other beautiful posts as well. I encourage you to visit her blog and check out these posts:
Without Fear: Telling My Story of Thankfulness - the story of how she got started with Thursday Thanks posts
Rocks in the Sand - the most recent of several of JA's Musings
Catch and Release - my favorite Musing (so far!)
What I'd Like for You to Know: Dealing with Food Allergies in a Child - Jane Anne's guest post over at Rocks In My Dryer - it's the first time I encountered JA in the blog world. As you can imagine, I could really relate to her experience. I headed on over to her blog to comment, and then kept going back.
To celebrate her milestone, JA is having a contest. And it's not a little contest, either - there are 10 prizes! Head on over to congratulate Jane Anne! If you leave a comment telling something that you are thankful for, you'll get an entry into her contest. If you tell her that you found her through Mom's Magic (or RLR's blog), I'll get an entry, too. There are several ways to enter, so be sure to read them all! Most importantly, though, keep going back - it's simply a wonderful blog and you must read more!
One more thing I'm thankful for - each of you that stops by my blog. Oh, I'd still post even if you didn't - but it's so nice to know that others are stopping by to catch up on our news, to know what Works for Me, or to see what I'm Thankful for, or even to ask questions. (Hey, everyone who commented while we were gone, I will respond to you!) The blog-o-verse is such a nicer place to be when you know others out there are stopping my your little place in space. Thank you!
Congratulations Jane Anne!
