Collections Of My Heart

I will try and keep this short and sweet as the grandkiddos will be here in an hour and I am still in my jammies. I can't believe that I started my blog at the busiest time of the year. I am unprepared with all the wonderful holiday cheer here that I see on all of your blogs. My Heart Friends here come from all walks of life as I have visited, commented, and collected them into my life. I thought I would just list them to give you an idea of my "all over the place" postings I will be making from time to time, along with the usual contentment with my life postings. I hope to gather my friends here so you can meet them too. Wonderful people, everyone of you. So, here is a partial list of the hearts I have gathered up so far:

Mothers who have lost their babies, toddlers and older children too.
Many of these same mothers carrying new babies.
Friends who have lost their husbands.
Friends with cancer, life threatening illnesses, depression etc.
And I seem to be collecting new grandmas, I just love us grandma stories.:)

I want to encourage anyone who comes here and comments to write what you want, even if it doesn't follow the post. You can ask for prayer and I think alot of my friends will pray, just feel free to Share what's on your mind or heart. I am not a structured person, not me. I'd like to be but it doesn't seem to be my forte. God seems to use me when I am all over the place so I am going with it.

So, as I said, this is not Christmasy, I got on the bus too late for this year to get creative here but I wanted to let you know that you all are welcome. My door is always open and the coffee is hot and waiting. I gotta go get dressed and get ready for my favorite hobby of all, my kiddos.

Be a Blessing to Someone today.
Love and Hugs, Laurie

I love to visit and read so don't feel like you need to only make one post a day. Wish I was close enough to enter the real door and share that cup of coffee. Love you dear, dear friend.

I feel the same was as Cathy. I seriously wish you lived right in my town, so we could spend face-to-face time.

I love who you are in my life, a constant source of encouragement and a steady prayer warrior.

Love you.
