In Appreciation: Three SoCS in One!!


Now that I’m present and accounted for–I’m back from holiday–I have no excuse not to blog. πŸ˜€

See what I did there? The above sentence is a culmination of all three wonderful SoCS prompts presented to you by my three lovely guest posters. I’d like to take this opportunity to thank them all for filling in for me while I was away.

I’ve learned a lot from each of my guest posters, but none more than Helen Espinosa. Here’s a lady who has been through so much in her life and yet has managed to keep a positive outlook. Her brave dealings with cancer, during which time she relied on the love of her family is so inspiring. Helen has shown me what it is not to give up, and to live life to the fullest; her philosophy is one I aspire to. Please visit her blog often. You can find Helen here:

Pav. What can I say about Pav? An English teacher by day, a dedicated dad and husband, a tireless runner, and an author any chance he gets, Pav has a unique sense of reality. His humorous posts are a never ending experience in eyebrow-raising entertainment, spackled here and there with a lesson in what it is to be a little bit of everything all the time. Any time you need a smile, go and read Pav’s blog at

For our last but not least of the SoCS prompts, we were blessed with Leigh. Speaking of busy, Leigh Michaels defines the word. Mom to five incredibly lucky children who have survived the foster care system, she seems to be a full-time everything, including the author of no less than four novels. To me, she is a lesson in what it is to give of oneself – inspiring doesn’t begin to cover it. Visit Leigh here: to read her blog and find out where you can purchase her novels.

So with that I’d like give my warm appreciation to you, Helen, Pav, and Leigh, for taking time out of your own busy schedules to keep SoCS going for everyone while I was away.

Please join me once again in paying tribute to three incredible bloggers!!

This post is, in part, a SoCS post.

  12. I missed a couple Saturdays Linda. I still love ya… just seem to have too many things going on right now. I will see you for the new year. Merry Christmas to you and your boys. ❀


  13. Welcome back Linda! now we can set off the fireworks party because WordPress just isn’t the same without you. I did enjoy the thought of guest posts for the SoCS maybe you should continue to do that every now and then.

  14. Bonus points for using the word “spackled” in your description of my writing, for I am typically spackled with all manner of baby fluids. Thanks for letting me stand in. Those dents in the hood and the scratches in the upholstery were there when I got here.
