I have been fortunate enough to 'meet' some of the most amazing people here in Blogland. Some of you, I found on my own. Some of you found me (probably by searching for 'idiots and nutcases'). I'm grateful for every one of you... for your humor, your honesty, your positive spirits, and your validation.
Every now and then, though, someone touches my heart in an especially profound way. Several of you have done that, certainly (as you know), but today I want to tell you about one particular blogger... Tabitha, or Tabby, as she often refers to herself. Her blog, I Choose Bliss, is one of the most uplifting, inspirational ones I read on a regular basis. Not only does Tabby indeed choose to live her life in a state of blissful gratitude, she does everything she can to pass on her positive vibes to everyone she meets. I find her truly amazing. You will, too. I guarantee it.
In addition to her regular blog, she has one for her family's non-profit organization, AFiveOh4Uplifting. They collect items to make 'goody bags' for kids in hospitals. Their collective goal is to make as many children smile as they can. OK, how cool is that?! Today they're on a mission to have items purchased for bags that will go the hospital where a fellow-blogger's baby is battling a serious illness. I'll be purchasing some goody bag goodies tonight and having them sent directly to Tabby (pursuant to her request)... I hope you will all check out the instructions/link on either of her blogs today and do the same. We all know how good it feels to make someone smile... but kids in hospitals? Count me in!
