Recently I was scrolling through the Catholic Mothers Online blogroll just seeing who is out there and finding new blogs to read...as if I need more. I'm SO behind as it is! Anyway, I just run through the names until I find one intriguing. I saw one called Braids, Curls and Hunting Squirrels. For some reason, I wondered if it was a mom who had two girls and a boy - like I do. So I clicked on it and was thrilled to find that, as often is the case (or so I try to tell my husband, haha), I was right! As I looked at the pictures of the kids I started having the strangest feeling that I had seen them before. I had seen them before. This family goes to my church! The mom and I were in a book club together for a little while until I couldn't go anymore and then it stopped meeting. Coincidence? I think not! Just kidding!
So I started thinking about it. I know of several people at my church who blog! Here are a few that I know of for sure. There are a few more but they are kind of share the family pictures type blogs and I don't know if they want to be displayed.
Happy Catholic - she stared it all. For me anyway. She told our CRHP group that she was starting a blog...huh? There was a huge question mark on my face - I had no idea what a blog was! But what a great way to learn, huh?
Veronica on the Verge - she was the next one I knew with a blog. I love to read her stories!
My Favorite Things - my new friend that I met at work this year. She also goes to my church and is in my mom's group.
and if not - Laura H is a new friend who I mainly know through blogging. Her dad and my husband were in CRHP together. My CRHP team put on the retreat for her mom's CRHP team.
Braids, Curls & Hunting Squirrels - the blog that inspired this amazing, wonderful, riveting post!
I'm sure there are tons more (give me a shout out if so). It's a huge church! What fun to be able to share our faith not only with complete strangers a world away but with our church neighbors just down the street! It just goes to show - we're not so alone in this world!
