I just want to say thank you

As a lot of you may know, I have been going thru alot. I mean alot. If not for being able to express myself on my blog, I really don't know what I would do. I just wanted to say thank you to all of you who come here to offer words of encouragement, give great advice, and those who just lend an ear, to allow me to vent. It really means more than you know. This blog has brought me a lot of people who I consider to be my sistahs!!! People that I would have never met, if not for blogging. This is one the greatest of inventions. I have always been a person to journal, but I never allowed anyone to read them....Only I would go back and reflect on what I wrote. My feelings were documented, but never heard. Never validated. Never seen by anyone but me. I still journal, but this is much more effective and therapeutic for me. It is really amazing, that a lot of us go through some of the same things, share the same beliefs and values, the same hobbies, the same struggles.... Everyone wants to feel like they belong. That they are not indifferent. That they are people who go through the same things that I do. Wow, can't believe in just a year's time.... I have met some of the most wonderful people I know. We may have not met in person, but I feel like I have been knowing for years...People like Bonnie.. Adrienne, Toya, Hollee, Gina, Melanie, Nas, my crazy girl Justem (she makes me laugh so hard some times, Rolana, Melissa, Sophia and many many many more people. I am so glad that I decided to blog. I know that most of you will remain my friends for a lifetime and that there is no limit to how many other friends I will meet, doing this wonderful thing called 'BLOGGING'

Just wanted to tell you guys: Thank you for caring, sharing, and being there for me. Thank you for allowing me to be REAL, to be myself. For accepting me for who I am . I love you guys. I thank God for you guys. I hope that one day, I will have the honor of meeting each and everyone of your acquantaince...

Until next time...

Awww, what a heartfelt post! You are so correct: blogging is really liberating, and sometimes we are able to be kinder and gentler people than in person, strange but true. Have a great Monday! :-)

Bloggin *hugs*

Dana - I feel blessed that I came across your blog whilst blog-surfing not so long ago. You are such a special person, and OMG - I so wish I lived near ya - we'd do some cool GF stuff like shop up a storm at HL!

But aside from being a fun blog-sistah, you are such a genuine, inspirational and warm presence. My day always goes better after my visit to your Cafe!

Sending you love and hugs!

Dana, I have to tell you that I've been blessed to fall upon your blog from 2peas a few months ago. I was like you. Journaled for myself and reflected back on what I wrote. No one read it but me. Bloggin has opened my eyes and made me realize that their are others out there that really care and are concerned. I love sharing with everyone that visits my blog and I especially love going to everyone elses to see what is going on their lives as well. I hope you have a terrific evening.

I'm glad I'm not the only one who feels like some of the people I meet via blogging are like real friends or sisters.

Sometimes I get scared that my feelings will scare them away or make them think I am weird or something.

There are some people that you just seem to connect with even if you've never met....it's like you could see yourself being friends with them IRL or doing lunch with them that Saturday or something!! :0)

Either other people feel it and don't express it or me and you are two crazy women!!!
