Thank You, You are the BEST!

In honor of almost hitting 65 followers, I wanted to give a big old thank you to the blogging world.

I started this blog Almost exactly 6 months ago and I never imagined it would be as therapeutic as it is, that I would meet so many wonderful ladies who would encourage me every day, and that I would have YOU reading my crazy thoughts and what I thought were boring life events.

I have been wanting to write a post about how blogging has changed me, and I think now is a good time.

1. Blogging has helped me see the positive. Since starting to blog and basically have a continuous journal I have realized how important it is to be positive and look for the opportunity to be positive. There is something about the thought of my attitude making my day un-bloggable that sickens me.

2. Blogging has encouraged my spirit. You all are wonderful and for that I am so thankful! You know how it says on my comment box that your comments make my day... Well they do!! You see, {honesty alert!!!} I have actually felt very lonely this past year when it comes to my local circle of friends. I have some beautiful christian friends, but I have also felt very lonely at times, but some of the friendships that I have made on here have encouraged me beyond what you may realize. THANK YOU!

3. Blogging has kept me busy going on adventures, looking for the next blog post, and making my hubby join in on the fun! {which he has actually become more and more a part of}. I love that it gives me a drive to be creative.

4. Reading your blogs has driven me to be healthier, more loving to my husband, resourceful, thoughtful, etc.. I guess you could say that you all have made me a better person! :D

Thank You! Thank You!

  1. Hi Clara! Just found your blog today, and what a fun little visit I've had! Loved this post about why you blog. I, too, have found myself lonely this past year, and am soooo grateful for the friends I've met through blogging. Isn't it wonderful that we can be a part of such a creative and supportive community?! Hope your weekend is a good one...
