Guest Post # 2- Sybil

Here is my friend who agreed to doing a Guest post for me while i am on Vacation 

Meet Sybil- she blogs over at Peace it all Together 
It's such a small world. Have you ever had anyone say that to you? When you walk into a birthday party and one of the other moms is a good friend of your sister. Or, you go to a company event with your spouse, and it turns out he works with someone you went to elementary school with. Or, you join a blog hop, only to find someone who participated in the same ornament swap you did, on an unrelated site.


Hi, my name is Sybil. I blog over at Peace it all Together. I entered the blogging world earlier this year, in April. This is only my second guest post, ever. Thanks to Terri for allowing me to share her space.

When I began this adventure in blogging, I really didn't know much about it. I only knew I wanted to write. I thought of blogging as a safe way to "publish" my writing. I didn't have to get anyone's approval, yet my writing would be out there, in cyberspace, for anyone one to see.

What I didn't realize was how many bloggers there are and how many different types of blogs exist. From fashion to decorating. From faith to random ramblings. And, everything in between.

Although there are so many of us out there, we seem to stay connected. Whether it's through blog hops, link ups, the person who designs our blogs or leaving comments for each other, we make this large space, in which we all belong, seem very personal, very small.

Over the past few months, I have wondered where I fit into this blogosphere. I am a mother, does that make me a mommy blog? I write about my faith, my family, my son with special needs. Lately, I've found myself wanting to share photos of my home, how it's decorated for Christmas, and just day-to-day stuff. So, what is my category?

What I've found to be beautiful about blogging is that I really don't have to fit into one category. I don't have to just be a mommy or a Californian or a Christian. I can be all of those. The only limits that are out there are the ones I place on myself. I can swap ornaments AND share my deepest fears. Although, not likely in the same post, I can do both, in the space that I've created.

Have you ever been on the It’s a Small World ride at Disneyland? When I was a kid, that was my mom's favorite ride - actually it still is - so we had to go there first during every visit to Disneyland. I'm still not sure why she likes the ride so much, but as I was thinking of writing on this topic, I decided to look up the lyrics to the song, which plays over and over again as you ride the small boat through the attraction. Here are the lyrics:

It's a world of laughter, a world or tears
It's a world of hopes, it’s a world of fear
There's so much that we share
That its time we're aware
It's a small world after all

CHORUS:
It's a small world after all
It's a small world after all
It's a small world after all
It's a small, small world

There is just one moon and one golden sun
And a smile means friendship to everyone.
Though the mountains divide
And the oceans are wide
It's a small small world

Although the sheer number of and variety of blogs in cyberspace still boggles my mind, these little spaces, where we each pour out our thoughts, fears, faiths, and fashion and decorating advice, we can connect, from all over this small, small world. Pretty cool, huh?
