  • Meet my blogroll: Rocks in my Dryer

    Rocks in my Dryer was a well established blog by the time I found it. It’s author, Shannon, created the Works for Me Wednesday carnival, and is a huge name in the women/mommy blogosphere.

    So I feel a little silly highlighting Rocks in my Dryer here, because you probably already know it. But just in case you don’t, I hope this post will inspire you to go visit, because no other blog brings tears to my eyes as often as Rocks in my Dryer does. And I mean tears of the good kind – read this post about her sons, for instance. I got teary with hope that my own boys and I will have such moments.

    She hasn’t been posting the “What I’d Like For You To Know” series much lately, but those posts were often tearjerkers too. They were always insightful and thought-provoking.

    But what I love the most are the glimpses into Shannon’s life. It’s so clear that she wants above all to be a good person, and she’s brave enough and willing to share her journey with us. I’m honored, and I think you will be too.
