Thursday Thirteen # 4 - How Bloggin' is A LOT Like Chocolate!

Photo Sharing and Video Hosting at Photobucket"



I'm sayin', Ya'll! It IS. Check this out:
  1. One blog is NOT enough!

  2. Some blogs are just sooo good, you gotta share them with your friends!

  3. Bloggin' is sometimes a guilty pleasure!

  4. Bloggin' is good with coffee!

  5. You definitely have to make sure you get plenty of excercise if you indulge, or you'll be sorry!

  6. Some you just want to keep all to yourself! Like a stash, (oops, did I say that outloud? I don't really keep a secret stash of chocolate, no never!)

  7. Very rarely, but every so often, one looks good on the outside, but then you get to chewing on it, and you just want to spit it back out!

  8. Most chocolate (oops) most blogs are sweet! A great treat!

  9. It takes discipline to keep the habit in check!

  10. You have to decide ahead of time how many you are allowed! Like deciding how many pieces of choclate you are allowing yourself at any given time!

  11. You like to find out about new ones!

  12. Bloggin' is a univeral language heard all around the world - just like chocolate!

  13. And best of all...some blogs have nuts...but mounds don't!

Free-That is an AWESOME list!! How very clever you are!

Karen,
I feel the same way about yours! What a wonderful thing bloggin' is! And don't get me started about chocolate! :) I have been very good just lately! I have settled for a little squirt of Hershey's syrup in my French Vanilla coffee, with a shake of cinnamon! Is that like Niles and Frasier Crane or what?! At least I make my own, and everyone else's! LOL! Anyway, it satisfies my choc craving!

Suchsimplepleasures,
So funny! You are fortunate to not have the chocolate craving gene!....trust me! :)

Ya'll are great, thank you for coming by!

I think I might have seen that before, but it is very cute!

And sometimes you just let the m&m (I mean blog) sit in your mouth until the candy coating melts off and you allow the experience to last as long as you can. From your fellow Mommy Monk!

Karen said...

LOL...you crack me up!!

Karen said...

I can relate to every one of these:)

You're right - Bloggin' is a lot like chocolate!!! :)

What Does it Mean Anyway? "Free to Fly"...

Well, it's like this: Here are some of the Webster's Dictionary definitions of Free: a : having the legal and political rights of a citizen b : enjoying civil and political liberty c : enjoying political independence or freedom from outside domination d : enjoying personal freedom : not subject to the control or domination of another2 a : not determined by anything beyond its own nature or being : choosing or capable of choosing for itself...having a scope not restricted by qualification 7 a : not obstructed, restricted, or impeded ...Now, here are some of the Webster's Dictionary definitions of Fly:1 a : to move in or pass through the air with wings b : to move through the air or before the wind or through outer space c : to float, wave, or soar in the air ... a : to take flight ...6 : to work successfully ...Examples which apply from Websters: fly high : to be elated - fly in the face of or fly in the teeth of : to stand or act forthrightly or brazenly in defiance or contradiction of

What does this mean in my life? This means that in life we are meant to be free. While historically mankind has not always enjoyed the opportunity to fully appreciate what that means, we are so indescribably fortunate as to live in a time of the greatest spiritual, physical, financial and political freedom ever known. Freedom doesn't come cheap, nor does it come easy. But the best things in life don't come that way do they? As I write this I am struck by how this sounds like a political statement, and for me this is much more of a spiritual thing, but, same goes for that (political that is). Freedom doesn't come easy. And it's worth whatever fight you have to make to overcome in your life in order to live a life that succeeds. Now the questions is - what is success for you? What is your standard? In my mind what is needed is a definite target - because you can't hit and maintain a moving target. A stable, rock-solid, anchor with no variable, yet multi-faceted. Something pure, just and worthy. If you look at any web page of news you can see that our society is certainly lacking in this area. What a great time to live as a rebel! Nowadays to be a rebel, all you have to do is be willing to engage in the battle of life, while anchored to Christ!
