This morning it occurred to me that I have been keeping this blog for close to three years - I reflected how far I have come on the path to healing and wholeness and then I looked back for a moment to see my very first post.
It was three years on June 20th - as someone once said, "What a trip its been." I began blogging to record my grief journey for myself. I have journaled for many decades and still do so. For some reason, I was compelled to go online - starting the blog seemed a place that would stand witness to my grief in a very different way. I never gave a thought to the fact that anyone else would ever read it. I poured my heart to the keyboard and then some amazing, unexpected things began to happen. People started to leave comments and I began to visit other people's lives, opinions, triumphs and struggles through their writing and their blogs.
The blog stood witness to my journey and so have you. The support, the love, the encouragement, the love, and the friendship I have found here has been a major element in my journey to a new life. Happy Birthday Blog - in deepest gratitude and love across the miles - thank you my bloggy buddies.
