Have you ever thought about quitting blogging? I hadn't until this last week. This is my favorite time of the year, and my busiest time of the year. Aside from being busy, I had some really disappointing news delivered this week. So feeling discouraged and overwhelmed, I considered quitting.
Just when I was getting serious about giving up the blog, I went to my friend Bo's blog. On Bo's Bowl, he had made and posted my Pretzel Toffee recipe, and just like that, the little cloud of sadness that had been hanging over me every since I received the bad news, seemed to lift.
Bo's kind words were just the encouragement I needed. Is there someone you know who needs a few kind words? I know I was praying for something to happen to make me feel better, and I am sure if we all look around we will find people who need a little encouragement too!
A very special THANK YOU to Christine of Cristine's Pantry for giving me a Food Blog Award! Please visit Christine's wonderful blog; she has a Coconut Fried Chicken recipe that I can't wait to try!
