I started this blog on a rainy day in September on a whim, a way to check off an item on my life’s bucket list. I had always wanted to write my own column or blog, but had never put a line in the sand and made it a priority.
I figured I’d post a few blogs and that would be it. However, once I got started writing I found very quickly that I got more out of the blog than I ever could have imagined. I’ve been writing the blog for only a few months, but I’ve already learned a ton.
For example, I’ve learned that the more honest I am with my thoughts and emotions, the more satisfied I’ve been with the end result. Like most things in life, the more you put into, the more you get out of it.
Looking back on what I’ve posted so far, I find it challenging to pick just one favorite. Saying that, I was pleased with one of my recent ones: the one I wrote about my mother walking away from the Amish church at a very young age. Despite ranking low in terms of hit totals, I also have a strong affinity for a blog I wrote right before Christmas envisioning the birth of Jesus through Mary’s eyes and my very first one, that started all of this and describes how I first started writing.
In any event, I hope you have gotten something from my blogs. If you have a moment, I’d love to know what you think. (I’ve included a short one-question survey below. Let’s hope my formatting works.)
I also continue to appreciate your readership and comments. The comments that I’ve gotten via the comments section or outside of the blog have meant the world to me.
In short, thank you for your feedback and well-wishes.
