A Blog Six Pack for AOL Editor Joe

Here is a six pack of blogs as per AOL Editor Joe's Request!

Here is his blog: Magic Smoke - AOL editor Joe

I decided to list 6 blogs that inspire me!  Some I have listed before and some are newer to me.  I would have to do a 'case of blogs' to list all of the one's that inpire me, but here is my list for today!

I hope everyone visits them at least once!

LUANNE'S LIFE LIVING WITH LUPUS Lu is a good friend who is really stuggling with her disease as of late.  Please pop in and give her a hello!
Imaginary Ramblings Susan is an army wife and she also suffers with Lupus.  She was awol for a while, but now she is back!!!  YaY!  
Karyl's Glimpses of Eternity--  Lupus and Life Karyl has the darn Lupus too, but is full of verve!  She has this amazing porch garden that she does each spring and into the summer... please, go check her out and beg for pictures, like I do!
She Said WHAT? Andi just had surgery on her back.  Again.  And she has a bunch of medical problems but the most amazing sense of humor and love for life! 
Sometimes I Think Krissy and her husband John are going through a scary health crisis right now.  John is battling MDS, a bone marrow cancer.  Yet, they both have a positive attitude, amazing faith and let us share in the love that surrounds their lives and marriage.
DUST BUNNY CLUB OF NORTH AMERICA I am linking you to Dorn's main blog, however, check out her list on the side bar.  She has her own photo blog, her hubby has a photo blog and a link to movies that she makes!  And, the link to one of the most inspiring blogs around,  LETTERS TO GABE letters to Dorn's eldest son serving the US Army in Iraq.  I know, a link within a link.... I cheated.
But here is the thing.  You need to go to Dust Bunny to truly get a sense of the wonderful mom that Dorn is and how much she loves her husband and kids.  Through the Dust Bunny journal you get to laugh and live and love with the whole Oompa clan!  Dorn, her hubby, Dickidoo and the five Little Oompa Loompa kids!!!
I can't go through a day without getting my daily dose of Dornbrau!  LOL 
I am also so inspired by her grace in handling her son's Iraq tour.  Gabe has lost comrades and had to see some horrible things.... yet, his mom's ability to provide him support and love, have never waivered. 
Mom to mom, I am so grateful to see the grace and wisdom that she uses daily to get through it, even though her worry is palpable, like the love, the example will never be forgotten by me.  Someday, one of my son's or both, may serve.  One never knows.
So, there you have it.  My six pack and a bonus.  lol
I know you will forgive me!
Be well,

My Dad pours himself a coffee in the morning, turns on his computer, and visits Dorn's blog before he visits mine!

Thank you for including my journal.  I think your's inspires me so much.  I've read Karyl's.  In fact, I know her well.  Krissy's is on my reading list too.  Her and John are constantly in my prayers.  The others I will definitely visit.  Hugs, Lu

Thanks for peeking at my journals!!!  Now for a quick note ... After God made me, He wanted to experiment with something new ... different ... he then created Dorn ... and quickly destroyed the mold ... WE should all THANK HIM ! ! ! !  The world is not ready for more than one Dorn :D
