My Most Favorite Blog

Consider this a reading PSA: there is SO much data & information that presents itself to us every single day, and without intentional effort (sometimes even with it), it’s almost impossible to claim any real, quiet mental space.  When I was in California for 5 weeks this winter, I didn’t have my cell phone or my laptop and I didn’t miss either.  At all.  But this isn’t a post about “unplugging.”  It’s more about something an acquaintance of mine used to say, “Be greedy for the good things.”  She meant that we should search out the life-affirming, inspiring, uplifting things and claim them for ourselves, especially since so many other things claim us and our precious attention.  Today, I’m sharing one of the things that makes my heart lift up every day, in the hopes that it does the same for you.  The blogger is a young mother of four who survived a plane accident that left her burned over 80% of her body.  Her story, her spirit, and her fabulous style make this a not-to-be-missed site.  Click below.  You won’t be sorry.  I promise.

  1. This was an incredibly inspirational blog from Stephanie Aurora (Light?). I am blessed to have read it. Wow!
    I went for a long walk today, and I agreed with Stephanie, I understood the gift of our mortal experience. This was before I read her fantastic blog. At this time of year, I feel as if my spirit as well as my body awakens. I have had the song “Earth Angel” (5os) in my head for two days. Wing shaped clouds were scattered through the crisp blue sky. I said to myself,” This is it, this is life, pure and simple.” Stephanie is an earth angel; we all are. Thanks Leslie! Colleen


  2. When someone recommends as blog as something I will not be disappointed, I don’t expect to find a grammatical error and a misspelling in a few short lines. OK, I know I’m picky, and I’m OCD, and I was an English major, so I can’t help it, but I have to say — I was disappointed; those kinds of “gross illiteracies,” as my freshman college English teacher called them, distract terribly from whatever joy I might take from it.


    1. Hi Lynn,

      I know exactly what you mean. I’m intolerant of grammatical errors, even in other people’s speech–I blurt out corrections–I can’t help it. And, I’ve had similar reactions to Stephanie’s blog, but for some reason, perhaps the totality of her story, it doesn’t bother me as much as it usually does. Some part of me actually admires the lack of perfection in her posts because what she does offer is so extraordinary. Thanks for sharing!
