Blogs of Note

So my friend Courtney over at Storing Up Treasures started a Blogs of Note promotion.  Basically the concept is promoting your blog to gain readers.  So here is my attempt to self-promote!

I love Courtney's blog, her honesty, her rawness.  Courtney and I went to the same church here in New Jersey, it's funny we were not friends way back then, because I often tell her that if she was here or I was there we would definiteley be friends.  Our lives just didn't cross when she and the Rockstar lived in NJ.  I was more friends with her mother, Joy.  Her mom led the single mom's group at church.  Joy was a great support to me and my children.  We talked on the phone a few times and sorted things out. 

I remember when I first came to Grace (Grace Christian Church) I would often sit behind Courtney, the Rockstar and their small children.  Autumn was two years old back then and would often be found sound asleep on my shoulder.  I remember when they adopted Gayla and Mikie and I believe Courtney was pregnant at the time, I thought they were so cool :).  I thought, "Now that is how you serve God".  I admired them. 

Courtney soon left the chruch and then her mom did.  I never did get to connect with her or the Rockstar but by the fantastic world we call the internet we have connected.  I consider her my friend and often pray for her and her family.  I'm over joyed that her mother recently married.  I know it was the desire of her mom's heart to grow old with someone. 

So if you want to promote your blog, head on over to Courtney's page.  It might just be worth it!
