Food for Thought…

This week I have asked Matt if he told his co-workers about his awesome weekend and he said “not really”….I was like “why?” and his answer was “I don’t like to brag” and those words got me thinking……

I have been thinking I sure hope no one thinks that is what I a doing. For me we all know I am boring 99% of the year but when we do something fun I want to share it with you all, that is the point of a blog….no? And I feel like there is a HUGE different between bragging and being proud. For me I can’t wait to share with everyone how proud I am that I pulled off a surprise. Truly, you all know that I say … giving for me is partly selfish….I just LOVE making someone (usually Matt) so happy. I mean knowing that something I did is what has made Matt happy….I just beam with pride. So I sure hope that all my FB friends and Bloggy friends know that about me and know that I am not a boastful person.

Secondly, I do know some blogs that ARE very boastful……the purpose of some blogs is just to brag and show off and I hate that. So I hope that when I talk about something I have done for Matt or I share with you all that we got to do something exciting that I am NEVER bragging but sharing with you all something that makes me happy.

Kapeesh? Ok, I will get off my soap box!

    I don't think you're bragging at all. This is YOUR blog and you should express your excitment about this fun adventure with your husband. Let's be real…it's not every day that you get to go to the World Series.:)

    I have never thought of you as bragging. I love hearing the ideas you come up with for him. I need to take lessons from you and do more stuff like that for Tony.

    honestly, this is your blog and you may tell us anything you would like. You're excited about something, so you should shout to the world! It's not bragging in my book because you don't have that personality and you're not telling us so we can feel sorry for ourselves and wish we were in your shoes. It's not like that at all. I'm going on a cruise soon and those pictures will be ALL OVER MY BLOG! 😉 but thats not bragging to me, thats sharing. Don't ever think you brag or anything like that. You're a good person and don't have the heart to be mean so don't think like that.

    I'm a little late on this one. I've been out for about a week and am getting caught up. I never think you're bragging when you share your stories. I love reading about your adventures and all the things you're involved in…it's what keeps your blog interesting. You have a great heart and that shows through all of your posts!!!
