how you feel like you become friends with other bloggers. I guess because I never expected it. I've never been one to go on the internet and go to chat rooms or boards....just didn't care to talk to strangers.
But then I started my blog.....and I met other bloggers, moms, like me, mostly younger but still, strangers that I now actually consider my friends. And I guess I wasn't prepared because what happened was this.......their lives and what they post actually affect me.
One that I read daily has struggled to become pregnant, became pregnant and then mis-carried. I shed a tear when I read it.
One who was bidding on antique napkins on eBay....won the bid and man, it just made me smile.
One who had a baby......of course didn't blog for a week and then once back online, just made me happy to see her post again.
One who loves the Cowboys like me......and has a daughter with my last name!
Two who have quit smoking like me.......one going through menopause like me......so many who like to scrapbook.....even more who like to decorate. One I'm learning photo tips from and one who lives on a farm and teaches us all about it! And the ranch......can't forget Pioneer Woman!
One who is battling cancer and one who is struggling with a sick child. These are people I don't know but people who I hold in my prayers every night.
I truly believe that through blogging you do become friends. I really believe that if I was down in Alabama, Cheryl would meet me for lunch!!
So I guess I'm just saying it kind of took me by surprise....I'm glad I started my blog and if I read your's, just know, I think you're my friend, whether you know it or not! And I have not updated my blogroll in so long.......and if I did, it would take up a lot of space!
