Wow... a BIG thank you to Rebecca over at The Road Home. And to all of you who have offered your support, encouragement and prayers. This morning I checked my email to see a few more comments on my blog which is always exciting. As I read through them, I noticed a theme, people were coming over from Rebecca's blog. I thought, "Wow, I wonder if she added me to her blog roll. Cool!" But when I clicked over to her blog, I was moved to tears when I saw a whole post dedicated to my family. Thank you all again. I had a MUCH better day today and I know it was because of your uplifting prayers!
This blogging world is amazing and I feel truly blessed to be a part of it. My first real exposure to it was back in March when I went to the Behold Conference. I meant to write about it back then but never did. Now here's my chance! I traveled with a friend of mine who I knew long before either one of us had a blog. She is actually the one who really encouraged me to get going on my blog! Anyway, she was really excited to meet up with a number of her blogger friends. I can remember the joy and excitement in the room when two other bloggers walked in. It was as if they were neighbors who had just seen each other a few hours ago. They talked and laughed and reminisced about stories and other bloggers. When my friend and I were alone again later that night, I asked how many times they had met in person. "Oh, she said. This is the first time!" I couldn't believe it!! They had a deeper connection with each other than I do with many people who I have spent time with for years. I saw this same scenario repeated time and time again. When people would introduce themselves, the first question was about where I blogged. I loved it. So foreign to me. Now, I am swept up in this wonderful support group of bloggers, friends who so willingly give their love and support to someone who they have never met, but who they see is in need. Thank you, all, so much. And please know of my prayers and love for all of you!!
