This morning there are a couple of nice posts on other blogs I read that you might find interesting.
The first is on a garden blog I just found yesterday, written by someone in my area. She has posted some good photos of our local flooding, which I have yet to capture with my camera, and also gives some perspective on what farmers are dealing with here. Check them out at at Prairie Rose's Garden.
I also appreciated a nice post on Morning Ramble about the importance of speaking words of encouragement and praise to those we love. This blog is always breath of fresh air, and I appreciate her desire to invest in her family.
