SITS, How Do I Love Thee???

Let me count the ways.....
I love thee to the depth and breadth and height...
My soul can reach, when feeling out of sight....
For the ends of Being and ideal Grace....
I love thee to the level of everyday's...
Most quiet need, by sun and candle-light....
I love thee freely, as men strive for Right...
I love thee purely, as they turn from Praise....
I love thee with a passion put to use...
In my old griefs, and with my childhood's faith....
I love thee with a love I seemed to lose...
With my lost saints, I love thee with the breath...
Smiles, tears, of all my life and, if God choose...
I shall but love thee better after death....

(With apologies to Elizabeth Barrett Browning)

Ummmm ... after reading some of the comments, I need to clarify something. I didn't write the above poem. It's one of my favourites from Elizabeth Barrett Browning. I just added a word to it, hence my apologies to her :-)

It really does sum up my feelings about SITS.

I found SITS in June of this year. Until then I'd been sort of floundering in the sea of blogging, not really knowing what I was doing or where I was heading..

Can't say that I'm all that wiser about where I'm heading as this blog is sort of an ongoing creation...

However, through SITS and many wonderful bloggers that I have met on there, I'm getting a better idea of what I'm doing. I have a better grasp of HTML, I've figured out how to add colour to my posts and lots of other fun stuff...

I feel as though I am part of a community of women, with diverse interests. I can and have learnt from them and I think that maybe they have also learnt things from me..

I love their sense of humour. The obvious love they have for their families. The way they are ready to share their themselves, their quirks, their strengths and little known facts about themselves ...

Amongst those women are...

Kat from SUNSHINE AND LEMONADE


Suzanne from AT HOME WITH THE FARMER'S WIFE

Angie from JOHN DEERE MOM

Mrs 444 :-) from HALF -PAST KISSIN' TIME

Debbie from THIS IS THE LIFE

There are so many others though ... HEATHER TIFFANY LULU LORI RHEA JEN JEN B TRESSA IM

They have all enriched my life in one way or the other...

So have a great BLOGATHON today, everyone. There are some wonderful prizes to be won.

For those that want to get in on the actin, the rules can be found HERE !!!

Look at all of you writing poetry today. I am so glad that the assignment was not to write a poem. Or god forbid a haiku. So, I did what I do best. The term paper.
