... Just a Comment!

 Leave a comment, when you visit a blog and notice zero or just a couple of comments on their posts.

Leave a comment, when what you see makes your heart dance. We too often take everything for granted- behind those posts there's so much time, love, and hard work.



Leave a comment, if what you read inspires you and pulls at your heartstrings.

Leave a comment, if you perceive fear, feelings of inadequacy or sadness between the lines.

Leave just a teeny tiny comment, just a quick hello if you don't have the time.
A single word of appreciation can brighten someone's day and can make a GREAT difference in their lives!

I've been away for a couple of weeks, but am home again and enjoying your beautiful, floral post. The wind is whipping outside and the snow is falling. I'm curled up, snug and warm, enjoying your thoughtful words and romantic photos. I'm happily choosing to "leave a comment", Monica

Lovely photos as always, a nice reminder that better weather is hopefully on it's way and I have to comment on how well trained your dog is because there is no way those biscuits would have been safe that close to my dog. LOL they would have been gone in the blink of an eye.

koralee said...

I adore your photos today...and wise words because comments are always such a blessing. xoxo

Custom Comforts said...

Great words of wisdom and kindness. I seldom leave a comment if they already have 30-40 because so many of the smaller blogs get very little attention, and as you said, a lot of work goes into each post. Thanks for sticking up for the new and little blogs that so often get passed over for the glamerous ones.
Cindy

BECKY said...

Hi Sweet Friend!
Love the whole concept of nurturing the blogging community through sharing inspiration and encouraging words in the form of comments. It is a rare thing for me to visit a blog and not comment, and I am always puzzled why so many do just that.

Beautiful post...just so lovely.
You always inspire me.
Big hugs,
Becky

Susan said...

Oh it's all so true, Monica. You've really pointed out what blogging is all about - SHARING in our love of friendship and the beauty all around us. It is important to comment, even if it's a quick few words, to let bloggers know we're thinking of them and grateful for their presence here.
Thank you for reminding us all!
xo, Susan
