It's that time of year, but I should probably be taking stock of all I have to be thankful for more than just the week of Thanksgiving. I am so ridiculously blessed! And I don't say that to brag, but because when I look around this house and when I think about my life, I just can't believe how blessed I really am.
One of the things I am most thankful for is the blog community. My blog has gotten me in a little bit of trouble lately with some people, but blogging is by far one of the best decisions I have ever made. When I feel like I am the only person in the world struggling with an issue, there have always been people to say they are praying or that they understand because they find themselves in the same type of situation. Realizing you are not the only single girl in the world is pretty awesome. I know that there are trolls out there, but I have never really had a bad experience. I am thankful for every ounce of love and encouragement I have received.
On top of that, I get to glimpse into others' lives as well. I've been a people watcher all my life, which is basically a first cousin to the blogosphere. I certainly haven't met everyone I read, but I have gotten to know a few of you, and that's been a lot of fun! Blogging started as a way for me to get out the things that were on my mind. It was my therapy in the rough patches, and those posts serve as encouragement to me now. It's the ultimate reminder of where I've been and where I am, and just who has been traveling along with me.
Thanks for coming along for the ride!
