As you know
I am not a big promoter

I don't advertise on my blog.
I don't sell things.
I don't join link parties.
I am just kind of a dinosaur
in a road runner world. 
I will sometimes put out
prayer requests and 
 I do believe in helping and
growing people.

That is why I want you to
take a little trip over 
to this blog if you have the time.
coco interiors and floral design
Laura has quite a story...
we are bound together by 
many things including the
loss of a child in the family.
Her son.
Her Sam.
Her angel.
Her life has been lived in a different way
than she ever expected.
 Laura is a strong woman
and has moved forward.
She went back to school to
get her degree and is now
in the business of 
Interiors and Floral Design.
She had an earlier blog that she
gave up when she went back to 
I think you will love her style.
  I know I do.
So, if you can spare a moment
please sign up as a follower and
help her grow her blog.
She will appreciate it and you will
be the one that reaps the rewards
of being a follower.

Oh- Yeah-
One other thing?
She is from Australia.
You know, the land 
So make sure you use the words
G'DAY MATE  and maybe, just maybe,
she will invite us all over for a
BARBIE with all the other COBBERS.
We'll have a nice YABBER and
I expect she'll be serving CHOOK!
Good Day, friend.  We'll be invited to 
the BBQ with her other FRIENDS. We'll 
have a nice chat
and find some CHICKEN on our plate);>)

She'll be STOKED!
No-Not STROKED, silly-
......and I will be, too!

Good Morning Diana, You never steer us wrong when you send us to a new blog. I get to see more of the world through the blogs of other. I have a friend coming to the states from down under in May. I just wish I was closer to where they are going to be to see them. The sun is coming up, but it is cold. We still have the cold wind chill. Have a wonderful day. Hugs and Prayers from Your Missouri Friend.

You are such a lovely person. I stopped by her blog and it is gorgeous. I love how you shared her story. Now I will go back and follow her blog.

It's no wonder you have so many blessings, because you spend so much of your time blessing others.

Have a beautiful day.

Hi there, I feel like you do about ads on blogs etc-I just don't do it. So I guess we'll be old gals together, ey matie? I will definitely go visit your friend and sign up to follow her. I'm always amazed at how people get hundreds and thousands of followers. Maybe those ads do pay off.
Have a good day.
Love, Noreen

I have a good friend who's an Aussie-I worked with her two summers in the Yukon. Here name is Barb, but she pronounces it Bawb.

joanne said...

will do. There aren't very many people that I will do for but you are at the top of my list. You helped me out with my grandson, you shared your story of losing a grandchild with me when I mentioned I had lost my first child, you've prayed for me and laughed with/at me..thank you. I believe that if we can help out another blogger then that is the best reason we have to be bloggers is the first place! Sweet dreams.
