When I started this blog I had so many hopes for it...not that it would go all famous or that I would become one of the chosen. Not even thinking that someone else would read it I began to put things down that I wanted my children to see (someday). I didn't get very far, they don't like this blog thing.
I had hoped to find out things about myself, and I have, some not so pretty. I had hoped to touch another life in a good way and time will tell, time will tell.
I had hoped to find my lost faith, the part that I struggle with every day, and what I have found is that everyone else is struggling too.
I found DIY blogs and thrifting blogs and got inspired to try some things in my own home, and I have, but I don't often share them and I should change that.
I found strength and courage through watching you all live your lives with both. And I found inspiration to try new things and be who I really am, someone I have just recently learned to like.
I have found a new-found love for some incredibly strong, talented, gifted, amazing women and the words they've left behind. And in doing so I have found an inner strength that surprised even me.
This bloggy world is a strange and wonderful land. It is wrought with imperfection and it's own particular kind of troll. But if you look beyond that and reach out just a little the kindness you will get in return in immeasurable. Thank you. be well my friends, cherish is the word.
