Older Blogger

I don't have an exciting blog to write about tonight (not that I EVER have a really exciting blog to write about ever) but since Kelly is having her Friday's SUYL theme "Older Bloggers", I figure I fit right into this category!

I have been blogging for several years now.  Kelly got me started when Hubs was on one of his long trips to India and I would be alone for awhile. (He just home tonight from Nicaragua!)                

Through blogging I have "met" some wonderful people and feel like it is sort of a personal journal.  I have even forgotten some of the things I've done when I look back over the archive of the past years of blogging.

I know Kelly has people who read her blog that range in ages from high-schoolers and then all ages including us grandmas!!  What a wonderful way to connect with other women of all ages and learn from each other!

Thanks to all who stop by to read this "older blogger's" post from time to time!  I would love to hear from any of you!

I discovered your blog through Kelly's and I enjoy reading it. I'm a SAHM with two small daughters (1 and 5). It's fun to read about the daily life of someone in a different stage of life than I am in.

Older women are our mentors!! I have learned a great deal from these mentors in my church and family. I just have a feeling God has used you and worked through you to mentor to those around you. Blessings and have a very Happy Thanksgiving!!

I love your blog & Kelly's! Sometimes I feel like I know your family a little just by reading.

Hi Judy,
Well how fun is this?????? I have been reading Kelly's blog for a few weeks and not even sure how I found her! Ha.... but she is just precious and adorable! You did good Momma!
I am 52 and going to be a 1st time Grandma to a granddaughter in February so I'm super excited. With those 2 adorable little girls you can probably give me some advice! ;0) I even had to show my daughter your grandgirls and said "Look at these adorable girls!"
So I'm tickled "pink" to meet you and get to know you! And I need to thank Kelly for giving me the chance!
Hugs and blessings,
Tanya

Diane said...

Your blog stories are cute. :-) I am a young mom (26) of two kids, but I like seeing your perspective as well. Keep on keeping on!!!

I love that blogging is like a journal, I have had moments like you when I had forgotten about little details in my life until my blog reminded me of them. Ever since I started blogging I feel like I make more out of each and everyday because whatever project or recipe I am working on might end up on it. Have a great weekend!

All I can say is you never know who is affected by the simplest things you might say. God works in mysterious ways, His wonders to perform!! :)

I have mentioned (several times I imagine - ha) that I thoroughly enjoy your blog and Kelly's. It is fun to read about Kelly and her family, remembering my years of having babies and raising children. Things change, but I think the objectives are still the same.

God bless you all. Happy Thanksgiving!

I do not have a blog, but wanted to tell you how absolutely precious your daughter is to me. I love her strong faith and her humility. I love her sense of humor and the way she is just so real. No pretenses or trying to embellish stories or impress others. I know you and your husband are so proud of her.
Your granddaughters are gorgeous. I love to see how Kelly dresses them so cute. I am so sorry that Harper had such a rough start, but I would have never 'met' Kelly unless someone asked for prayer for little Harper.
I am 56, I love Jesus, am happily married for 30 years with four twenty- something children. Two are married and two in college. One 7 month old grandchild, Luke. LOVE him!!! Nothing like the love I have for him. :)
I don't comment that often and read only about 10 blogs, but I just had to tell you how very special your daughter is to me.
Happy Thanksgiving!

Joyce said...

I enjoy reading blogs written by women of all ages. That's how I like my real life too : ) I don't know your daughter in person but she certainly comes across as a lovely genuine young woman with a heart for Jesus. I'm sure you had something to do with that : )

I'm not quite at the 50 year mark yet. I thought it would be fun to visit other grandmama's in blogland.

Stacy said...

I love Kelly's blog, and am so excited to find yours! I am a former teacher and a pastor's wife. Can't wait to learn from you about how to better "do" that!!

I enjoy your blog very much. I found your blog by reading Kelly's. I enjoy your comments about your church and the activities in which your are involved. I am a retired teacher, lover of Christ, and Nana to 7 year old Olivia and 8 month old Harper Rae. Yes, we love the name Harper. F. Moore in Indianapolis

Hi Judy, fellow "older mom blogger!" ha ha. I love being who I am though, so that's okay. Thanks for stopping by and to answer your question: I see the youngest sons 5 children frequently, and the others not as much. And when the other family of 5 arrives to visit, the 5 in town come to play and it is WILD. The family with only one son (so far) may feel a bit overwhelmed with all the chaos! ha ha. But things will change for them next month when their 2nd child arrives. I love to visit your blog; sort of feel like I'm getting to know you too. Have a blessed Sunday tomorrow!

Jeanie said...

I enjoy reading your blog and appreciate your love of dogs. Of course, I read Kelly's blog, too.

Samantha said...

I love reading your blog. I have 3 children a son who is 8 and two daughters 6 and 4. I stay at home with them and love every minute!

Diane said...

I've been reading your blog for awhile, finding it from Kelly's blog, but thought I would let you know I am reading! I'm also an "older blogger" and one of my granddaughters is the same age as Harper so it is fun to see how similar they are. I love your blog and Kelly's.

Joy said...

Hello, I feel like I know you. Somehow I got to Kelly's blog when Harper had just been born and was still in the hospital. I have clicked on it everyday since then. I seldom comment but love to read about your family. I am also an "older blogger" and often joke about my boring blog. My daughter and DIL have blogs and it inspired me to give it a try. I love blogging just for myself. I am going to start reading your blog. Good to meet you in the "blogging world"

What cute granddaughters you have!!! I have 4 grandchildren and am almost 53! Yikes...how did that happen! It's the best time in my life....happy to meet You!!

Judy,
You just have no idea how great an impact you have & can make through your blog. You are truly an inspiration, and all us Mimi's (and Nana's and Gramma's and Nonny's!) enjoy reading what you have to share.
Blessings,
Sara

Lori Alexander said...

Hi Judy ~

I am an "older" blogger also! I have used my blog to train younger women to love their husbands. I love how God gives you ministries in unexpected ways. You sure did a great job raising Kelly. She seems to really know how to love her husband which is very rare these days. I am happy she is so popular because she shines Jesus in the way she lives her life and the words she writes.

Blessings,
Lori

Happy Thanksgiving to your precious family!

Betty G said...

Hi there! I've been reading Kelly's blog and found yours through hers.

Hubby and I moved from Okla. City to East of Memphis this year to live near the majority of our 14 grandchildren - with one more on the way. During this year we have welcomed our first Great Granddaughter on 4-5-11. Life can't be any better.

We have found our new church and love it. They had confidence in us and selected us to be in charge of all Senior (55+) Activities. We are enjoying our new "mission field."

God bless you and all you and hubby do!

I hate I missed out on sharing over at Kelly's blog for this post. But, I too enjoy blogging & meeting others through this source of communication. I met you through her! :)) Have a great week.
