Just Me being...Me!!!

So... a few weeks ago I posted a graphic of a mom and her blog. Everyone was quick to point out to me that I do not look like this!! Thank you all very much for your love and respect in the manner you chose to point out that I am neither young nor...

But, I like the graphic because, I like to blog. I like to blog for different reasons:
1: I like to learn, I need to learn something new everyday or I feel as if the day was wasted. So when my daughter Jackie called me from Paraguay and said, "Mom, I have a blog." I did not like not knowing what one was. I checked her blog out. Loved it, and tried to leave a comment. Next thing I know, rather than a comment, I had my OWN blog! Still not sure how that happened!!!

2: I like to meet new people and I love a good debate. Not an argument, just sharing differences of opinion.

3: I love sharing with family and friends. Mine are spread all over the globe, literally!! Through this venue we all participate in each others lives in an active way.

4: I LOVE the Lord. This should probably be first, but half of my readers would have stopped reading at that point!! LOL tricked you! I want to share what God has done for me and my family even in difficulties in hopes of blessing others going through hard times.

5: I like to share the GOOD NEWS with people that might not normally hear it. If I reach someone through this blog, PTL. So many people are open if we present things in a way they can see and feel that the conviction is of God not from me.

6: I love HEARING from everyone who visits. PLEASE, leave a comment. Even if it is anonymous. Just let me know where you are from or whatever you feel comfortable with sharing. I have some LURKERS out there and I would love to know who you are and how you ended up here at my little blog.

7: I like to Journal, this is a way for me to record history, with world and family events to remember later...for myself, my children, and grandchildren.

OH!! I also love the graphic because the mom is drinking coffee!!



So this is me , the real Jungle Mom !! I am the mother of four and the grandmother of one, soon to be two, and a 40+ yr. old woman just wanting to TALK!!!

Hey Babe, I am not a lurker. You are my girl and I am glad our daughter got us into blogging. It is fun. Pam will tell you that you also meet alot of interesting people.

Pam said...

LOL,Clint! Especially "Cookie". I like him.

Rita, you look "beautiful" in this photo. What a neat idea. I THINK YOU LOOK A LOT LIKE ME! LOL

Pat said...

I think he (yekwana man) could be stalking you!! Notice the familiar term "babe"??

Ya'll are great!! I am enjoying getting to know you better, your heart, your life, your struggles, the current events, and your family....seems we have been friends forever...

Now Pam is a different subject....
she is a wild woman, but I love her dearly!!

And you each touch my heart and encourage me to be stronger and I know I am lifted up in prayer to my Saviour!! That is a great encouragement!!

Blessings to you!

Pam said...

If Pat only knew! bwaaah!

Sis. Julie said...

I want to thank you for coming by my site and leaving a comment. I wanted to come see your site in return. I'll be coming back!! Can I add your site to my list of sites I like to visit? I'll go ahead and do that and then if its not okay you can let me know to take it off. By the way....you look young for being 40-something.

Jungle Mom said...

Sis. Julie, thank you!!! Some one finally with good eyesight! Please fell free to do so. I do often ramble on and at times in spanish, but if you find my blog interesting, or at times helpful I would love to have you link it to yours.

Kim said...

I think I am one of those lurkers you wrote about! Love the pix, you look great! I am a faithful reader but sometimes I can't think of what to say! silly huh? That's why I don't talk on the phone. I'm more of a face to face person. My Mom has started reading our blogs, it is contagious! Can't wait till you guys are back in the states. We have LOTS to catch up on!

Here I am sitting amongst clueless people of a certain ideological type (You might know the city's name: it's two words, starting with an "N" and ending with a "K"). All I can say is I still have it very good compared with what you have to go through now.

Let me say that you are a very attractive person, even for a mother of four, and your husband is still very lucky to have married you. Please take it as only a complement as I'm a true gentleman and I respect all true matrimonial arrangements. ;)

Btw, if you don't mind answering, is your hubby an actual indigenous South American native or is the name given to him by the tribesmen there? Just curious for some reason.

It's a shame that what is now Chavezlandia has not reached its full potential and may not for a long, long time.

Jungle Mom said...

Kim, AND Janine,yes Kim you are the scariest type of lurker! I know you are busy. I have the ability to hop down stairs and
peck away at the computer sveral times during the day. You dont. So , I do understand. But Miss Janine!!! Please! Just one small comment?

TRANSIC, Thank You sir. After your and Julie's comments on my youthful appearance, I have decided to only appear on-line from now on, I seem to be much more appreciated here than in real world!!!

Jungle Mom said...

Transic, no my husband is only the proud bearer of the nickname given him by the tribe whith whom we lived and worked for over ten years.

Jungle Jayde said...

I am a lurker. I have found your blog and somehow found your house and your key to your house. I am in this house with you. I will get you...
When you least expect it...
The only time I flee you is when you're looking for me to do schoolwork...Or housework...Or clean my room...






I..





Am..





Your daughter!!
