Wow, I can’t tell you how much this means to me. Yesterday I woke up, opened up my computer, and…paused. Were my eyes deceiving me? I closed them and opened them again. I reloaded the page – was WordPress having a glitch?? Nope there it was in blue and white, my daily stats graph had gone off the charts! I jumped to the Freshly Pressed tab, not even daring to breathe.
HOLY COW – THAT’S ME.
*Insert Happy Dance here*
There are absolutely no words to express how much I am humbled by, and grateful for, every single one of you that took the time to stop by and read my blog. So many of you left the kindest comments, and wonderful words of advice. If I could come to each of your houses and bake you a batch of your favorite cookies and give you a huge hug, I would. But that would be kind of creepy because I’ve only just met most of you, so I hope you like chocolate chip!
Seriously though, I have spent a lot of time perusing other blogs and the Freshly Pressed page. I’ve read a lot of books. And there have been SO MANY moments where I’ve been amazed at a writer’s ability to articulate something I’ve thought or felt.
To have some of you say that I’ve done the same for you? I can’t even tell you what a compliment that is. To have people say that I moved them? It sent shivers down my spine.
So I would just like to say thankyouthankyouthankyou and Thank You from the very depths of my being. You made my week.
To all of my new followers – welcome! I can’t wait to get to know you! And I sure hope I don’t disappoint you…gosh, I feel like I have something to live up to now – it’s a lot of pressure! :P
And to all of my followers, old and new – I love you, you’re awesome. Thanks for taking this journey with me. It’s been breathtaking.
On a more serious note: I am totally overwhelmed by all of the responses I’ve gotten. I want to give each and every comment the time and thought it deserves, therefore, if I’m a little slow in getting back to all of you, I’m sorry! I promise I’ll do my best to get to everyone in time.
