When I started this blog, almost a year ago, I had no idea that people would actually READ it!
It started as a way to keep people up to date about how we were doing after Sweetpea's dx.
It became a way for me express all the feelings I have about this disease.
In one of my first posts, I put something like "If you ask me how I'm doing, how we're doing - I'll say fine. But THIS is where I'm going to tell it like it is. I'll be like that old person who when you ask "how are you feeling?" will go on and on with a litany of complaints. In person - I'll say fine. But HERE is where you'll get the real story."
And I found that the more I wrote, the better I felt.
The more I wrote, the more I felt at peace with this life.
And then I met other D Mamas.
And it became more than just me and my computer....
And it was incredible. INCREDIBLE to find other people who "got it". Other families going through the SAME things. Other people who spoke my new language.
And so I read, and I wrote, and I cried, and I made new friends....
And I LOVE it!
My blog is one of my favorite places to go.
It's where I feel like ME.
It still surprises me that people actually READ it! And that people LIKE it!
So I just wanted to say ...
Thanks for reading! Thanks for commenting!
I see you all out there.... reading from places that I know and places that I don't.
I see people reading in the city I live in. I see people reading in other countries.
And I always wonder about you...
Who you are. How you found me. What YOUR story is....
I LOVED that, in addition to my faithful commenters (who I love so very much), I had some new folks introduce themselves on my last post.
If you've been out there reading - I'd love to "meet" you! Say Hi and introduce yourself!
I'm honored that ANYONE reads this blog! And I'm incredibly honored when you read it and you like it and you connect with what I've got to say.
Because it's not just MY story. Or SWEETPEA'S story. It's OUR story.
Thanks for the love!
