being vulnerable...

i just reposted something that makes me really vulnerable. i wanted to say thanks to my readers. i have only been posting on this blog since October 2008. I know, it looks like longer. I created this blog as an addendum to my family blog. i needed a place free and safe to vent, and to share positive light moments. my family blog is great, but I don't get a lot of feedback there, and hey, let's face it. we all need attention, good positive attention. i am really liking the world we live in. one where we can feel so lonely, alone, and as though no one could understand how we feel, and then this.....[and i still love my family blog, i just don't get as much support there, so i do it for the enjoyment of my kids. THEY love when I post about them. ....so proud to hear them say, hey Mom, blog that, blog my story, blog my game, etc....yes, fun!!!].

so thanks, to all of you who read, and follow, and COMMENT - woo hoo,
for letting me know that I am not alone in this big world, and in the feelings
that I have and in my experiences.

No one cou
ld have told me back in October, when I was feeling so lonely, so needy, that I would be where I am now, feeling noticed, not alone, and thankful. for you.


For this venue that allows us to reach out to one another. Hey, i am facing it. i write because I like you. I like hearing from you. And i like reading about your lives as well. thanks for being here for me. even when I am not as good about getting around to comment. I do care that you are here, and i will try to do better. please leave me a comment if you are coming here. i want to repay the favor by reading and I don't want to miss anyone. thanks.

Here is a couple of awards for all of you.
Take one, two, all three, you deserve them!!!!

EVERY ONE OF YOU who COME READ. THANKS!!!!

What a sweet post. I feel the same way about blogging, I love the positive attention and getting to know so many different people! I love how I can count on some to make me laugh, some to make me cry, and some to teach me new things.
Thanks for stopping by my blog.

You expressed exactly how I feel about blogging too. I started my blog for my family across the country to read. They told me they enjoyed reading it but I never got any comments from them. I have thoroughly enjoyed all the wonderful people that I've "meet" through blogging. lol Thanks for the awards and congrats on the awards. Have a great day!

Congrats on your awards! I started blogging in October too but I'm only 84% addicted. I feel so much better knowing that your addiction is worse than mine!

Hi In Time Out,

on marriage

'Will you, um, marry me?' I haven't seen you in weeks! You don't look happy or excited about the prospect of our marriage! You're asking me to give up my - my freedom, my joie de vivre for an institution that fails as often as it succeeds? And why should I marry you anyway? I mean, why do you wanna marry me? Besides some bourgeois desire to fulfill an ideal that society embeds in us from an early age to promote a consumer capitalist agenda?
