The truth as I know it:

We witness a miracle every time a child enters into life. But those who make their journey home across time & miles, growing within the hearts of those who wait to love them, are carried on the wings of destiny and placed among us by God's very own hands. ~~~ Kristi Larson

Not Me Monday

Okay, I'm participating in this carnival blog at MckMama's site for the first time. I've been stalking these other Not-Me participants for a while, but my not-me's seem pretty boring in comparison (plus, their embarrassing), but it's more fun if you get in the game, so here goes:



This week, I did not stalk everyone elses blogs and find about ten more that I am now addicted to reading.

I did not almost miss the bus today because I was reading other Not-Me posts and I did not have to run in my barefeet to meet Liam so he wouldn't know I forgot him. Nope, not me, because that would make me a really bad mom, right?

I did not lay in bed sick all day yesterday and make my husband stay home from the Titans game to take care of the kiddos. No, I would never do that.

I did not get inspired by all those other new blogs I found and go change the title of my blog in hopes of finding some new readers. That would make me a copy-cat and I am never a copy-cat... not me!

I am not at all jealous of all the bloggers who get like 250 comments a day on their blog, Not me, that would be really lame if I was jealous of someone's blog, right?

I am not now totally ignoring my kids so I can finish this post. I mean, how ridiculous would it be to ignore my children just off the bus to post to my blog? That is NOT ME!

I am not dying to see an updated photo of my friend, Nicole's, new baby girl, just home from Russia on Saturday.

I am not praying for my friend, Karen, whose little girl is waiting for her in Russia and in need of surgery. That would not be very much like me to be praying for someone who is in turmoil about their child in an orphanage.

And, finally, I am not hoping that all of you who read this will leave a comment, because comments on the blog are just no fun at all. I don't like reading them anyway and don't stalk my own blog hoping someone has stopped by. No, not me, because that would just be pathetic!

I am also a blog stalker, and I must admit that your new catch title made me want to read yours. It's lovely.

Amy said...

Thanks for my Monday laugh - as always.

Maggie said...

It took me a minute to understand this(imagine that)but I thought it was fun. I miss you all so much and wish you and I could spend more time together. Have I told you lately how proud I am of you? Kiss the clan for me. Maggie xxxxx

I will leave a comment because as a new blogger with no comments I understand the need to know someone is really out there, and the number on the counter isn't just going up because I keep checking my own website. I'll pray for your friends and their adoptions.

I found you though MckMama, and I gotta say that your last "NOT ME" definitely was the reason I'm commenting...because I'm just as "pathetic". :)

Love your Not Me's and I haven't sat through half the night and all day today reading all the other Not Me posts and commenting on 90% of them in an attempt to get more than one comment on one of my posts! That would be insane, right?!

My kids are really getting used to me being on the computer.. I neglect them regularly to blog.. ha ha.

Found you at MckMama's and wanted to say Hello.

Jennifer said...

LOL, I certainly hope you didn't do all those things!

Michelle R said...

That's ok, I Did NOT let my husband put all 4 kids to bed while I read blogs for hours and I still haven't made it through all of them... Not me.

Katie said...

Just had to leave a comment... I too covet the comments. I mean I know I am supposed to be blogging for me right, but sometimes you just think, "is anybody even reading this?" I love that you have three adopted children! You've already won a place in my heart. I'll be back keep 'em comin!

Kristen said...

I am not leaving a comment on your blog because I desparately want comments on my blog. :-)
And I am not checking my blog repeatedly looking for those comments...

Ashley Griffin said...

blog stalking...who does such a thing... the title of your blog is very cute. i only wish i had thought of it first!

Karen said...

Ok.... I feel compelled to leave a comment. Love ya,
Karen

hthr said...

Let's go get over-caffeinated together some morning.

Heidi said...

I totally don't check my blog often looking for comments...who needs to do that. Not Me!

I would never check sitemeter multiple times a day to see if someone visited and then see where they were from and where they found me, etc.....

I am sooooo NOT with you on this one.

Loved your "Not Me's"! I've been keeping up with MckMama for a while now - - and now I may be addicted to this one, too! Gee, I don't know if I should thank you or if I should blame you for MY laundry not being done!

Keep up the good work!

Love the blog, love the title, love that you want to glorify God. By the looks of it you already do.

Donna said...

I am so NOT affected by the sight of "0 Comments" at the bottom of my posts...nope, I do NOT rate my own worth as a writer based on how many people take the time to leave a word or two. NOT me!

And I am NOT a MotleyMom...www.motleymoms.com.
