So, I've got time on my hands. Time to ponder life's great mysteries. That, and other peoples blogs. All I can say is y'all are a lot funnier than I am. You're better looking too. And you have perfectly, wonderful lives. You never say things like you wanna tear someones head off. You seldom moan about life's little disappointments. You post the most amazing recipes and photos and you make me envious of your talent.
You're just too much I tell ya, too much.
I'm thankful for what you write. Sometimes you make me laugh so hard that coffee comes out my nose. Really. It does happen, although I admit I've learned to control that reaction. Cleaning coffee off of a monitor and paperwork isn't nearly as much as it sounds.
There have been times I've been moved to tears by one of your heart wrenching stories. Some of the things you folks have lived through, well, it just amazes me.
Some of you write about faith. There are times it makes me feel small because sometimes my faith is small. Sometimes I don't understand things and I wonder and I feel lost. Your faith writing is heartfelt. It springs from a soul that is right with God. Dude, it's sooo good.
Then there are those of you who are snarky and sarcastic (can I get an amen?!). You think like I do. Sorry, but it's true and it tickles the wicked little girl in me.
One thing I'm having trouble finding though, is the mom who is in limbo. She doesn't know what to do with herself. I find no middle age anxiety, no empty nest syndrome, no identity crisis in this little blog world of mine. But I know you are out there. I know because you have to be out there.
You write about politics and cars. You post about gardening and crafts. Sometimes you blog about your family trip across Europe...and I follow you, vicariously living your adventure.
Most of us will never make a dime blogging. Sure, there are the "chosen" few, but most us simply report the weather, the babies growth, the daily grind, the life lived.
And whether you know it or not, you touch a life every time you publish a post.
So keep writing!
