Reaching out, connecting and acknowledging are very important and by hopping over each day to various blogs/websites and reading the Beautiful Posts written by others, our neighbors, I come across so many exciting, wonderful and/or thought-provoking pieces, I made the decision to share as of today, not just one, but several ‘Other Beautiful Posts’ once a week.
New in WordPress’ blogging-land is the lovely lady ‘Danicanallen‘, her first post is thought-provoking, but also includes an important message and in my humble opinion, a promise to future marvelous articles.
