Every night before I go to bed, I lie in bed with my iphone or Nathan’s ipad and I visit my Google Reader subscription. I open the page with joy, excited to check in on the world of so many families whose lives I follow. Sometimes I am met with amazing news, other times I read prayer request for sick kiddos, other times I find out about interesting new treatments or developments. Often I feel like a leach for I read but never comment.

I never comment on other people’s blogs because I hate typing on the iphone or ipad – it takes too long to type what I want to say. Plus usually I am unwinding as I read, ready to check out on another day.

But I read. Every day of my life I read every word they write. Regardless of where I am in the world or what is going on with my life, I never miss a post written by any of the blogs I follow.

I also follow several Yahoo groups. Same as with my blogs, I read EVERYTHING, but hardly ever post. Sometimes I feel terrible that I am such a lurker, but it’s the only way I can do it, it’s the only way it makes sense to me. I read everything as I lay in the comfort on my bed, then when I finish reading, I saw prayers for everyone needing prayers, and drift to sleep.

I thought you guys might be interested in learning what blogs and groups I follow. I share them all on the FRIENDS page. If your blog isn’t added here and you’d like me to add it, please leave me a comment with your URL. I love meeting and following new families. I learn from everyone, and love cheering for your kids and learning from you.
