MY SINCERE APOLOGY

I have neglected this blog completely!

[image credit]

I totally was committed to at least sharing

MONTHLY AWARENESS

each month

but

I failed

I hoped that this would keep me

Motivated on Sharing

more on

MISSIONS

Coming here to update

I am so sorry that I have not kept up on this blog

MISSIONS

is so very important to me

and

at this point

does not seem so

BEING AWARE

of

MONTHLY AWARENESSES

also

where we share what is important in the world

staying aware of 

the many issues

the many needs

the many health concerns


Please forgive me

If you came here, looking to read something

and

found

NOTHING NEW

NO FOLLOW THROUGH

to

my commitment or mission

to our

GREATER GOOD

I did make it through April ... in posting

MONTHLY AWARENESSES

but

{yeah, right}

I missed February completely
and
even January
I just shared one of my main concerns

{this is very disappointing and sad}

if  I can, I will try to complete more of the months

Hopefully in

2016

I will be better at blogging here on

MISSIONS

{probably not on Monthly Awarenesses but you can check back archives}

This has been the least amount of posts ever posted here

of all the years, so once again,

my sincerest apology.

2015
2014

Although many of these are interesting and sometimes entertaining, I was hoping, I guess, to share more of the Health Awareness Days or ones of major importance as a Nation and a World (Internationally) ... but thankfully, there are sites that do share these as I noted at the end of March. So check out those links, if you are looking for more. I guess I did not realize that there were places where you could find all of these already available when I decided to do this. I should have known better with all the technological advancements.

MARCH MONTHLY AWARENESS LINKS

Since the end of last year (about fall time), I set up "Monthly Awareness Link" posts with the intention of sharing at least one each month and I have failed already at doing this as I had hoped, but they are still set up. 


I am a little late in this one but I am still posting it because at least this one day just took place this week, on March 30th, 2015. Better late than not at all. It is/was:


"The vision of World Bipolar Day is to bring world 
awareness to bipolar disorders and to eliminate social stigma."


I came across "Bipolar Bandit" blogger, who shared a very informative post on the right day (March 30th) with a great list of others but her entire blog is also wonderfully done. Psych Central also has "Top Bipolar Blogs"  along with many other mental health issues and articles because our "mental health is as important as our physical health". I'll get another chance at sharing this in May (if I remember) for International Bipolar Foundation Day (May 9th).

I have set these up now for every month, hopefully so I won't miss them ... and I remain AWARE of each one that concerns me personally and should for the rest. If I become aware of more I will try to add them here (the 1st of every month).

[Of course, looking at some of the events or those listed at MRE, I would not have posted or included them here, but at least you can be better aware by visiting them].

Mission 4 Monday sadly ended last year as a meme, but I continue to share here and I know others also share various MISSIONS, especially the people above. Check them out!!! Encourage and perhaps join us.
Since my life is a MISSION, I share whenever I can. There are many of you, who do community involvement/church events, volunteer opportunities or know missionaries that you could share to motivate others. Motherhood and Homeschooling are MISSIONS and callings!!!
Each of these are MISSIONS and important to encourage others.
If you are doing something or share someone's MISSION on your blog, please leave your info in the comments anytime! Hopefully others will notice & come visit. THANKS!
