I’m not certain where these words may find you. Perhaps you were scrolling through your Facebook page when you saw one of my posts appear. You may have been lightly browsing your Twitter timeline and clicked on a link to one of the entries I have written. I may have shared my thoughts with you, hoping that my insights provided you encouragement. Perhaps you are like me, finding a few moments to yourself in an otherwise busy day, your children, significant other or pet commanding your attention in the background, even if they are not asking for you directly. It always seem as if those who we spend most of our time with (our children, or others), never fully want our attention until we are immersed in something else, doesn’t it?
If you have been reading my posts for any length of time, you may notice that when I write to you, I call you my friends. If you are new to my page, and are reading for the first time, I want to welcome you to our community. You are my friend as well. I am happy to have you here, and I hope you find encouragement and peace in these words.
When I first started this blog, my primary intention was to write for myself. In a way, this very public forum was also a way to express my private thoughts. As I wrote more entries, the blog became less of a process, and more of a way to connect with others. Since I have started, I have been incredibly fortunate in the fact that not only are others reading my posts, they are also sharing them with others that they know. I am beyond blessed to see my network of readers and followers continue to expand, and for that, I want to thank you all.
You see, this is why I call you friend. In building this community, where we share grace, encouragement and hope, we are coming together in a mutual space, to share our thoughts, our feelings, and our experiences. As you continue to support me by reading, we are sharing a mutual bond, connecting over these words. While some of you may be my friends in real life, some of those who are reading these posts I have never met in person. However, I want you to know that our connection is still the same.
I am so grateful that I am able to write to you on a daily basis. I am happy that I have been able to reach others and impact them directly. Each time I receive a message stating that a post spoke to a person, I feel reaffirmed that what I am doing is truly empowering others, which is my sole intention now for continuing to write these posts.
Friend, thank you for being here. Thank you for allowing my words to fill your screen. I am blessed by our friendship, and I hope you feel the same.
