To All of You

I'm thinking I need to get one more blog in before the new year begins. It has been awhile since my last confession...sorry bad joke or possibly a good one if you're as dorky as me.
I really do miss blogging/facebooking. I miss "talking" to all my bloggity/facebook friends out there. I miss knowing that somehow I am creating a sort of online scrapbook for my family. A journal of my thoughts, which seem to be more like ramblings, complete with pictures and most of all encouraging input from all of you. I miss reading your blogs. It was a part of my day that I cherished. A time where I wasn't thinking about my world and my family, but felt like I was a part of yours. Your stories, your everyday life that you have shared through this crazy thing called blogging/facebooking made a difference in mine. I miss getting on my knees and praying for your adoptions, your family, your everyday battles, your charities, your deepest heartache and celebrating your accomplishments, rejoicing with you when prayers are answered and learning from your experiences regardless of age, marital status, religion, having multiple children or none. Each of you has touched me, my heart and my spirit. I would love more than anything to personally acknowledge who I am talking about, but given my light hair pigmentation...yes..I am blonde and the fear I would inadvertently leave somebody out due to the fact I may have only visited your blog once or am not a facebook regular and maybe can't even remember your name....Just know YOU, ALL OF YOU have impacted me in some way. Keep writing. Keep blogging. Keep sharing from your heart. Be honest. Be real. Be genuine. You never know who will be reading...kind of scary and creepy in a cool way..huh ?
Your thoughts will make a difference. Your story matters. Your struggles are not in vain. Your everyday victories bring hope. Because you have a made a difference in my life and your story matters to me. I have learned from your struggles and your sweet spirit has brought me hope.
We are getting ready to not only start a new year but end a decade this next year. If this year has taught me anything....my goal is to not only strive to live simply, but to simply live.
May you know...really know and believe in the depths of your soul that you are loved and desired. I love you all. Happy New Year!!!!!
