I need to thank you, the truly caring, wonderful people who have visited my blog and left a footprint. I just spent the last half hour reading comments from a new follower which made me revisit my own writing and comments that others have left.
I started this blog for reasons other than self expression and connecting with like minded people. I also dipped my toe in the shallow waters with a bit of reticence, not completely on board that this forum was for me.
What a stupendously beautiful surprise that I feel so happy to be a part of this caring, nurturing community. This is a place that has magical corridors that weave intricately to a place where everyone can find the place they are supposed to be. I want to dive into deep waters because I will see more, learn more, experience more, with you.
I feel so blessed to connect with what others would call complete strangers, and yet what I would call dear friends. I have never met you in the physical realm, yet I know you. I know you better than some people who have been in my life for half a century.
A pleasant surprise, yes. That is what I feel. And when we have those moments in life, where we are pleasantly surprised, we need to stop and take notice. And we need to be aware that sometimes the very things in life that we shy away from, the things that we are not so sure about, are the very things that have been presented to us as a gift.
Explore the gifts in your life. I plan to read about your adventures and to leave my footprint in your world.
