Today is the one year anniversary of the beginnings of Blackberry Rambles.
I had no idea just where blogging would take me when I began, but I have to say it's been a wonderful adventure and a very real blessing.
It all began last year with a blog called "Eyes of Wonder" written by a lovely lady named Jewels. I was so inspired by her blog that I began one of my own. Jewels is no longer writing, but several of the blogs I found through hers are still ones I read daily:
A Little Bunny
Coffee Tea Books And Me
And of course I found more blogs through those blogs. :) As the year went on my mom and sister even started a blog!
When I began this blog, I had no idea that my health was going to go even farther down hill and leave me bedridden for three months and house-ridden beyond that. Once I was well enough to be on the computer, it became my only connection with the outside world and my friends. Blogging was definately a gift from God at just the right time in my life. Nearly all of my friends at church write blogs too, and so I was able to keep up with them even though I wasn't seeing them in person.
I would never have believed that my health would recover to the point I am now, and yet I still find the blogging world a wonderful place of inspiration, friendship, and encouragement even though I can now go out of the house.
Thank you to all of you that share your blogs with me, and for the encouragement you have been in the past year. And thanks to all my readers for your lovely comments and inspiration.
PS: I did post the Roasted Veg Summer Pasta recipe for those that were asking.
