Today over at Cate's Blog Every Day in May, Cate has asked us to write a letter. My initial thought was to write an open letter to my daughters. But I just don't seem to have the words in me today. But I was feeling this... so, I'm writing to YOU...
Dear Blog Friend:
I never knew when I started this blog back in October of 2008 that it would become a place of such personal connection.
I never knew that I could meet friends online who were just as real, just as supportive, just as wonderful as those who are present in my offline life. In fact, sometimes you all are even more here for me than some of the folks who see me in person on a regular basis. You GET me. Does that make sense?
I never knew that I would find a tribe of like-minded women from all over the globe with shared interests willing to open up their lives, their homes, and their hearts.
I never knew it would be such a lasting source of inspiration and fun and sharing.
And for all that I want to say thank you. Thank you from the bottom of my heart.
To acknowledge how often a comment you leave here has the ability to make me smile, feel validated, pull me out of a funk.
And to tell you all how much you are appreciated. And loved.
With big virtual hugs from me to you:
