One of the greatest blessings of blogging has been "meeting" all of you. I feel really lucky to "know" you guys. There have been so many times where you have touched my life. It may have been through a comment or a thoughtful email. It may be just getting to know you through your blog. I love feeling connected you - knowing that we have so much in common.
As I've gotten to "know" some of you I am so impressed with the bright, shining spirits you have. I learn from you a whole lot. And sometimes I ache with you as I read about your struggles. And sometimes I want to reach through the computer screen and hug you. I know it may sound silly, but I believe that as women that we really need that connection and that we can an amazing ability to uplift one another.
Today's What I Love Wednesday is about a reader who is so kind. Her name is Ko. I started reading her blog a while ago and I just love her sincerity. She and her husband have two boys and feel very strongly that they are supposed to adopt a girl from India. They have been saving for a long time and they were recently accepted into the India adoption program.
Ko has an etsy shop to help raise money for the adoption. She sells really cute stuff at killer prices. (You should raise your prices, Ko :) Anyhow, I thought it might be fun to spread the word about her shop to all of you and see if we couldn't rack up a little extra business for her. She didn't ask me to do this, but I thought it would be fun.
See how cute her stuff is? I think I'll do a little shopping for the baby there.
And because I know there are a lot of you out there trying to do good things (even though I can't write about all of them) please feel free to link to a cause you're involved with or a shop you have. Maybe we can all help each other out a bit.
Thanks for reading.
