Best of A Bushel and A Peck

I love this man - just had to say it.

My son Rusty worked on my blog today and created a “Best of A Bushel and A Peck” page, which I hope you will enjoy.  There is a new tab for it next to the RSS feed button in the nav bar (or so Rusty calls it).

I got smacked with a virus on Thursday night which altered all of my ambitious plans for the last two days.  We even had a fellow blog family coming through town to visit us and I had to cancel – so sad!  Hopefully I’ll wake up tomorrow feeling great.

The good news is — it’s almost Sunday!

Let me introduce myself. Russ and I are the parents of twelve children by birth and adoption, and sometimes more through foster care. I'm the creator of One Thankful Mom which has been as much of a gift to me as to my readers. In 2011 I became a TBRI® Pracitioner* and have lived and breathed connected parenting ever since. I'm deeply honored to be the co-author, together with the late Dr. Karyn Purvis, of The Connected Parent; it is her final written work. I love speaking at events for adoptive and foster parents. I'm also the co-founder of The Adoption Connection, a podcast and resource site for adoptive moms. I mentor and encourage adoptive moms so you can find courage and hope in your journeys of loving your children well.

    So, I have to tell you my thoughts as as I read your post. First, I can't wait to re-read the "bests"! Cool! Then, you said you had a virus. I thought "OH NO" thinking computer virus. Then, I realized it was you who had the virus–and true confessions–I thought, "oh good, it's only her with the virus." Then I thought how horrible it was for me to think that way–being happy that my favorite blog would still be accessible to me because it didn't have a virus–it was "only" you! LOL! Then, I realized that if you are sick there will be no blog posts, so either kind of virus is bad. Hope you feel better soon and sorry for my selfish desires! LOL! Spend time recuperating as we can all re-read your bests!

    Oh I LOVE this! Thank you (Rusty I think) for including it! It really focuses the image of who you are, which is a lovely tool for us bloggie fans.
    And STRANGE coincidence, I just did this for my blog about 3 weeks ago! Like minds? It just makes me sad to see some things so buried.

    Hope you are feeling better soon!

    Look forward to having a moment to read the 'best of ' posts.

    Maybe see you in a few weeks. Going to try a quick trip up to watch a race and and early morning church service and then back home. Nothing like 10+ hours in a car each way on a long weekend to visit that college freshman!

    I'm confused…every post is a "best of" in my opinion. 😉

    Seriously, that is a great idea. I might need to do that for my blog too, so the deep stuff doesn't get lost in the piles of posts.

      Thanks Julie. It was fun creating that page. Eventually I would like a "best of" for each category: My Learning Curve, Schooling, etc. For now, I'm happy we got this done.
