Prayers for Anissa

People often ask how I got into blogging. I originally started blogging to write about my family (with my 5 readers) and then branched out into the review blogging category. I have branched out even more to creating relationships with other bloggers in the blogosphere?

I am amazed at what a wonderful thing the blogosphere is. For example, yesterday, I began reading on different sites that a fellow blogger, by the name of Anissa Mayhew, had a stroke and was in the ICU.  I quickly saw articles on different blogs show up – it was like a wildfire through the blogosphere – amazing!

Suddenly, bloggers from all over the country have rushed to support her and her family and even her husband is updating her status online.  I don’t know Anissa personally but I’m learning more about her.  She’s in my prayers.  Please keep her in yours!

    Blogging has been a wonderful blessing for me as well. When my cousin suffered from Cancer the bloggers sent prayers to the family and they were the comfort we needed to get through it all. My cousin passed away just this past month and it was extremely difficult to blog, but I am doing it and the support has been amazing no counseling is needed when you have the friend connection all over the world.

    So sad… I will keep her in my thoughts and prayers.

  6. Like you, I do not know her, but saw a post from UPrinting, then several more on different blogs all over the country. I, too have added her to my prayers, and have been thinking of her family. Thank you so much for adding it to your blog as you reach so many more people that can add their prayers.
    The blogging world is a powerful place, I just hope we can do something for her and her family!
