Pay if Forward

   My friend Holly from A Life-Size Catholic Blog has a wonderful way to support and encourage are fellow bloggers by "Paying It Forward."  So, this post is about one of my favorite and first blogging friends, Sue from Sue Elvis Writes.  Many of you know her, and know how open, encouraging, inspirational and kind she is.  Not to mention that she's a wonderful writer who has the ability to draw you into her stories as if you were there.  Her most recent post is about a miracle, her son Thomas and her friend Annie.  You'll get a glimpse into her heart as she shares her joys and pains being a mother, an unschooler and spare time writer.  If you do not know her, I would encourage you to visit her blog and she'll be quick to welcome you to her site and loves to hear comments.

God Bless,


  1. Noreen,
    I am sitting here feeling all warm and joyful. Thank you! What an unexpected gift of kindness you have given me today. I treasure your friendship and I am so glad I found you in this wonderful bloggy world.

    I have had times when I have wanted to abandon my blog, but your encouraging comments have always made me feel useful and so here I am still writing away... Thank you.

    May God bless you and your family. I thank Him for our friendship.

  2. I've just come from reading Sue's blog post, and I tell you I have not yet recuperated. What an courageous women and family. My heart is aching for their loss, but I am so inspired by her faith.

    I also added your blogs link to the linky. In the future you can just link up your blog. This way bloggers will come here first and then go to your highlighted blog/blogger. We get to meet more people that way.

    Thank you for sharing! God bless...

    Sue's name sounded very familiar to me. Then I realized I had added her to the Catholic Homeschooling blog directory! Thanks for reminding me of her wonderful blog.
    God bless,
