I am always surprised when I look at the number of readers that follow my blog.
I just realized I am over 300 readers, which is already more than half of the number of readers I left behind at the old blog after 2 years…and somehow, I have 300 readers in 9 months here.
I am glad you are here with me, sharing my unique journey.
This year – as much as it could have been an awful year – has truly turned out to be one of the best years of my life. I take all the sadness and misery along with my happiness and joy…I take all of it because it makes me uniquely me.
I feel blessed and grateful for my life – truly not something I have felt in the past.
Oh, and I can share one little (or big, call it what you will) lie that I have been telling way too long….and I can give you a hundred or more reasons why I lied about it, but it doesn’t matter, I have finally chosen to accept it along with all my other bruises and worts…..I turned 49 years old this past September (not 47) and that means next year is the banner year of 50.
I just figured, why was I going into an amazing year of my life telling a silly lie about my age? My mother did it til the day she died and somehow I adopted the practice. Bennett was the first person I was finally honest with about my age in more years than I can recall.
My friends all laughed when I told them and couldn’t believe I had kept the lie up for so long. I even said my age in front of my children, eventually they will put two-and-two together as well.
Anyway, thanks for always reading, commenting and inspiring me to think harder and more thoughtfully.
It’s been a wonderful journey for the first half.
