It is that time of the week where I meet up with hundreds of bloggers for our five minute flash mob of free writing. Lisa-Jo Baker selected “grateful” as this week’s Five Minute Friday word.
Today is my one month ‘blogiversary’. For that I am grateful.
I read and researched blogging for a solid year before diving in and I explored the idea off and on for years before writing my first post. I am grateful for the internet that I was able to use as a learning tool, I’m grateful for the bloggers who have set the path, and I’m grateful for the books that have been written.
Some of the most incredibly supportive and encouraging family & friends are in my circle. For that I am grateful. There is a large community of bloggers just waiting to mentor and be friends; they are open to sharing ideas, offer encouragement, and share their wisdom. For them I am beyond grateful.
I am grateful for the people and the companies who have reached out to me to collaborate. I am overwhelmed by the interest in my little ol’ blog. And for the readers who click the link on their computer and phone that brings them to my home page I am humbly grateful. My one year Blog Views Goal will easily be met before my two month ‘blogiversary’ In fact, if the pace remains I will celebrate that milestone in three days and that is because of YOU – the person reading this blog entry right now. Thank you. I am grateful for you.
Finally, and most importantly, I am grateful to know a God whose presence reminds me that I CAN try things. I understand some of those things may feel like successful accomplishments and others like learning lessons but either way it goes those moments are part of my story. And I am extremely grateful that I am the author of my story in this life and of this blog.
Thank you for reading my blog…
