Grateful For Being Here
Eleven months ago I pressed the published button on my first ever blog post. As a generally quiet and private person, I was nervous and apprehensive. But the longing to feel more closely connected to family and friends via this space outweighed the nervousness.
Just this week I posted my 100th post, and I am so truly grateful that I had the courage to start this blog in the first place.
: One hundred conversations that I may never have got to have.
: Photo's that may never have been shared.
: Stories told of me and my family, through words and photo's that may have never been told.
: The simple every day happenings of my life, and the extraordinary.
I hope there have been post's read over a coffee or wine. There have definitely been posts written with them!The comments that have been left, the posts that have been read, and the real connection and closeness that I have felt, has left me humbled and deeply grateful.
Grateful that I have done this, but more so grateful that I have you. My family, my old friends, and my new friends You have made many a day with your comments and words, and I thank you for that.
I am also grateful for the endearing Bron. My first ever linked post was a grateful post at Bron's place. Again, another big step for me to link one of my posts. But through Bron and the wonderful people that she attract's, I have met* a whole other group of like minded and women, who continue to inspire me and offer support. I have yet to form a good support network where I am, but these women, gosh, I have no words. They've got my back like they are the oldest of friends!
My Grateful posts have not been as regular as I would have initially liked, but I would not have missed out on this reunion of Gratefuls at Kidspot. Go take a look and see!
* You know, I've not actually met any of them in real life. One day!
