My five favorite blogs are going to be an easy post to write. If you follow my blog you will see the blog roll down the right side and there are a lot of them. I wish I had the time to read them all but I only follow a select few.
I am not sure when I started following The Accidental Cootchie Mama written by Andra Watkins. I believe that my friend Michael Carnell introduced me to Andra Watkins, during one of the Lowcountry Blogger Meetups that Katy and I started attending many moons ago. I look forward to reading Andra’s blog posts every day. Andra Watkins is a master when it comes to captivating her audience and drawing them into her stories. Her blog post titles are a true master piece. I can only imagine how many hits those get on Google.
I also love to read blog posts from my friend Angie Mizzell. Katy and I met Angie at one of the Lowcountry Blogger meetups in West Ashley at Mellow Mushroom. I love to read Angie’s blog posts because they are very thought provoking. There are days that I read her blog post and I have to put it aside and think about it for a while. The blog posts challenge me to examine myself and my view points. For the most part I can identify with what Angie writes about and I look forward to reading them when she posts them.
I love to read the blog my friend Michael Carnell writes. Michael and I have a lot of things in common and we have some things that we have differing view points on. At the end of the day we can agree to disagree and focus on those things we have in common. Michael and I both have technology in common. I love to read Michaels blog posts about his Model Trains and Toys.
I love The Colorado Adventure which is written by long time friend Liese Carberry. I met James and Liese Carberry years ago in Houston Texas. I worked for James at his software development company and we became life long friends after that. We have gone our separate ways but thanks to the communications of the Internet we stay in contact on almost a daily basis. I love the stories that Liese tells about her homeschooling journey and the awesome photos that go along with it.
I also follow Our Fathers World through Cannon’s eyes. Kimberly is Cannon’s mom and she writes about her faith journey and the many trials that comes with raising a child with Autism. Kimberly will always have a special place in our heart. We met Kimberly through Camp Happy Days and Special Times. Kimberly was our Jessica’s camp counselor when she attended Camp Happy days 12 years ago. The year that Kimberly was Jessica’s camp counselor was the last time Jessica got to attend Camp Happy days before she lost her battle with cancer. Kimberly kept a journal of her experiences with Jessica and we have those on our blog at lightourworld.com It is needless to say that Katy and I can relate to the struggles that come with a child that has a childhood illness. No, Jessica did not have autism but we can relate to the daily struggle with regards to raising a special needs child. There is nothing that will shake your faith foundation more than to have to live through this sort of thing. It will either destroy your faith or it will bring you closer to God. In our case and in Kimberly’s case it has served to draw us closer in our faith walk.
