Thankful for blogging communities

Thankful Thursday with A Parenting Life I know I have said it before and no doubt I will say it again, it never ceases to amaze me how quickly Thursday seems to sneak around each week. Though truth be told at the moment time feels like it is both flying and dragging at equal speeds.

Naturally the time that involves due dates and deadlines feels like it is going at double speed and arriving well before I am ready. While on the other hand waiting for our departure day still feels like it is months away.
I am thankful for an outing that let us see this
lovely fellow, for now though the details of which
which need to wait.

One of the things that has crept up on me this week was getting the post ready for the Digital Parents Blog Carnival. A fantastic collection of thirty odd posts from various bloggers. As time consuming as it was putting it all together I am super thankful to be part of such a wonderful community and be have a turn at hosting the carnival.

Another community which I am thankful to be a part of is the one taking part in Clairey Hewitt's Blog Every Day in May. It has felt great pushing myself to get a post out every day. Sure some haven't been as long as what I would normally write but it has felt nice coming to terms with the fact that that is ok. It has also been lovely having some new faces drop by. I am always thankful for comments.

The only downside to it all is that I haven't had a chance to get around to as many other blogs as I would normally like to. Thankfully though there is still time.

Today's prompt is I am inspired by.

Naturally I am inspired by people who go out of the there way to make a difference for others or to spread the word of a cause. People like Jimmy and Sam are perfect examples.

However those that really inspire me the most are the ones that just go and live the dream. Or even just try to. Giving something a go no matter how daunting or unachievable it may seem.

I am also rather inspired by the selflessness and dedication of mothers. Especially ones who are able to put on the bravest of faces even in the most dire of circumstances. Of which there are many amongst the blogging community. I am thankful that these amazing women go out on a ledge to share their story.

If I really stop and think about what inspires me the most though I think the answer is hope. Holding onto hope, even just the tiniest slither of it can bring about the most amazing of things. Not only is hope my inspiration but it is also something to be thankful for.

What is your inspiration?

And more importantly what are you thankful for today?
