Charlie Gibson said tonight on the ABC news that there are over 14,000 mommy bloggers out there. This recent fad of Mommy blogging has become newsworthy. It's interesting though isn't it? Women around the world are communicating the way women used to connect in a community. The web has provided a new source of relationships for those who might otherwise feel isolated in their small world.
I am glad to be a part of this growing community and glad to have found new friends who live miles away. I wonder, however, how many Mommy blogs offer eternal hope for those in the midst of the challenges of motherhood? My prayer is that my home here online would be a place for community and hope in the small details of life and in the huge wide world. What an exciting privilege.
Addendum: Funny, after I wrote this, Denise passed on the community blogger award. I hope that I have fostered a sense of community here as some of these other ladies have:
These gals know how to make you feel welcome by rolling out the red carpet, serving up the coffee and sweets and giving bloggy hugs if you come by. That's the kind of hospitality that grows a community (a family).
