Yesterday, I browsed through a few blogs, however, I did not leave any comments. I did not get a chance yesterday review the blog assignment until today. Anyhow, there was one blog site that really stood out to me, but, did not leave any comments. There were a few posts that I clicked the “liked” button. I found this blog because this lady “liked” one of my post and I decided to check out her blog. The name of her blog is http://thecraftyladyincombatboots.wordpress.com/ Immediately the title was very intriguing and read her about page. This “Crafty Lady” served in the U.S. military and is blogging about her current hobbies, interests, skills and etc. In addition, she has another blog http://thetravelingladyincombatboots.wordpress.com/ This “Traveling Lady” really grabbed my attention to the places that she traveled and for a moment I got lost in the moment. Visualizing myself traveling to those places that she mentioned; and I have visited few places that she mentioned. I have a DEEP DESIRE to travel the world and her site was very inspirational! I caught myself slightly living vicariously through her by the pictures that were posted; and the inspirational quotes about traveling/exploring the world and life. I felt like packing a suitcase and just go somewhere.
Also, another thing that I admire this ” …. Lady in Combat Boots”; It brought up my former job working with female veterans . Specifically, homeless female veterans and it kind of took me back to those ladies that I served. Remembering their stories serving in the military, places they have traveled, personal stories, and the circumstances that landed them in homelessness or “homeless” status. I really enjoyed serving those female veterans and have a special place in my heart for that population. I was grateful for the opportunity and was an honor to work for those who have served our country, sometime, it is unfortunate that some ( or most) veterans do not feel honorable when are facing homelessness. Working with female veterans was interesting experience, hearing stories from young to seasoned veterans. At times, it still amazes me how someone can go from serving your country to homeless… sorry for digressing.
Overall, I’m glad that I discovered this site and it is very inspirational and makes me want to travel the world!
