Well, I did it! I wrote every day from early October to New Year's Day 2010. Now I will write for fun when I feel like it and see where that gets me. Cheers to all my small-blessing-appreciating friends!

Last Post?

This is my 90th day of posting a small blessing every day. It is the last day of my commitment to write every day till the New Year. Sometimes it has been a burden, other times a blessing in itself. It has made me more aware of the abundance of good things around me, the large blessings as well as the small. The discipline has also been worthwhile.

I have five official followers of the blog. I know of perhaps a half dozen more who read without signing up. I wonder if there are many more? It made me smile to hear the passage read about John the Baptist  - "a voice crying in the wilderness".  It feels very empty out there in the internet. Some bloggers have a way of counting visitors, but I don't.

Will I continue writing without the vow. I haven't decided. Maybe I will write intermittently. Will I be lazy and give it up, or will I miss it and make a new promise? Those of you out there, both the known and the  anonymous - care to comment? Has it made any difference to you to be reminded about some of the good things we tend to take for granted? Is it worthwhile?

So today's blessing is you out there. That you would spare a few minutes to read my daily musings gives me a warm feeling of connection. I wish you all love and abundance of blessings in the new year!


  1. I enjoy reading your posts, though I rarely comment, and haven't signed up as a follower, since I read them intermittently (though I do read all of them). I would encourage you to continue, at least sporadically, if you feel it has been rewarding. Contrariwise, maybe there is something else that would be equally as rewarding to which you could devote a little time each day. Whether you decide to continue or not, I do appreciate your efforts, and they have made me appreciate my small blessings more.
    Love, Mary Ann

  2. I had written a comment about soup and shortbread and how writing in the blog is something to do just for you, (even though I enjoy it), but I must not have pushed enough buttons to get it to stick, so i'm giving it another go...
    and Happy New Year!

  3. Thank you Leslie - you are right, of course!

  4. I enjoyed them--it's important that we always express gratitude for oure many blessings, both large and small--there are too many to count, and they can easily be overwhelmed by the negative and evil things we hear too much of. Thanks for sticking with it! Good job!
