Some blog love


I did not plan this post. It just came to me as I was checking out some of my comments. As many of you are aware, there is a gigantic blog giveaway called One World One Heart (scroll down for details). It has brought together bloggers from all over the world, and has made me discover people I would not have 'met' otherwise. It really became clear today, as I was looking through various blogs, that we truly are connected.

There is no separation between people, only perceived separation. I look at the pictures on blogs, and am struck with the fact that these people could be my friends, and neighbors, and family. I look at a face, and think, yes, we could be best friends, if we only lived closer. We all face struggles. It is only natural to think that only we know what we are going through, and we feel alone. But reading some blogs today I came across a woman who wrote a beautiful, heartfelt tribute to her beloved father who passed away many years ago. She showed pictures of all the grandchildren he never knew. I came across a blogger whose husband was dealing with cancer. Another lost her job and her family was dealing with uncertainty. I could go on, but you get the picture.

We really are not alone in this world, there are many that face the same issues as us. Maybe it is time for us to reach out just a little bit more. Maybe by doing so, you can give some comfort to someone who feels alone. And don't be afraid to accept a helping hand. Maybe we could create a more beautiful peaceful world if we just open to the idea that we are One.

One world, one heart.

Have a blessed day!

It is so true, I have made a number of friends through blogging, and share in their joys and heartaches, despite the distances between us, we are friends. I love your artwork, it is divine and I'm so glad I came across is because of OWOH.
