Yeah....I'm finally posting another Daily Blog Review. I have really struggled with these lately and I think it's time to change some rules.
Of course, you've all heard enough about my assorted Internet and computer problems, so I won't go there again. But the end result has been a real limiting of my computer time. (Which may not be a bad thing, I'm finding, and a bit hesitant to admit...)
Limited computer time means not a lot of extra time to randomly search out new blogs to share. When I started the Daily Blog Review, my idea was to have a certain type of blog highlighted each day of the week. This worked well for several weeks. And then I began to find great blogs, but not necessarily on the right days. So, I'd try to post ahead, or bookmark the blogs. Soon, I discovered it was becoming a chore. *sigh* Don't.need.extra.chores.
So, from this day forward, I will share Daily Blog Reviews when I find great blogs, period. Every day will be a surprise! I still want to do this every day, but once again, I think my limited computer time may get in the way of those plans. I'll do my best!
Now, for today's blog....
About a month ago, I became a contributor at Deep South Moms, a regional blog that is a part of the Silicon Valley Blog Moms Group. If you haven't heard of this organization, I urge you to click the links to learn more. There are SV regional blogs all over the country.
Anyway, just a couple of days after my bio was posted, I received an email from a fellow mom blogger. It just so happens that we have a lot in common and she wanted to introduce herself. Sophia and I share an art background with a love of mural painting. We both have homeschooled and public schooled our children, have sons with Congenital Heart Disease and Autism, and sadly, we both have lost our oldest boys due to their heart conditions.
Sometimes it is really nice to know that you are not alone! Even if the circumstances are less than favorable. At the same time...It's hard to know that others have lived your pain.
Sophia shared with me about her past experiences as a public speaker and encourager to those living with grief. And she shared her blog. Now, I'm sharing Sophia with y'all.
Dare2Shine is the name of Sophia's blog. On her blog, you will find everything that Sophia loves: her art, her family, her encouragement, and information on her son's condition, IDIC 15.
Sophia has also written a book called Shiny Things~Lessons I Learned From My Wild Boys.
Sophia's book is an encouraging word to women who need a lift from the daily weight of marriage and parenting. Click the link on her right side bar to read more about her ebook and to purchase your own download.
I think y'all will really enjoy getting to know Sophia and learning more about the many topics that hold her interests.
Until next time~
