As with anything that we bloggers put our minds to, I figure that if 700 is a milestone that this post should have some "muchness" to it. But what should that muchness be? How do I determine to make this post different? I've had lots of ideas...
On KLOVE yeserday they were asking listeners to call in if someone blessed them over the weekend. So yesterday I was going to write about how you all have blessed me through blogging. On Sunday I was having lunch with my mom and we were talking about the miraculous healing of my sister. So I was going to post about miracles and how God has healed the relationship between my sister and I during the time that I've been blogging. The day before that I was shopping and found all sorts of things to use for creating. I was going to post about how bloggers inspire me to be more creative... even when I feel dried up. On Friday I caught a precious moment with my 12 year old son. I was going to post about being captured and honored and near tears as we both sang along to a praise song on the radio.
It's only now as I sit here putting it all in front of me on the screen that I'm realizing that you and blogging have permeated my everyday. All that I do becomes a topic for the blog. Every moment is a possible post. Every photo I take is with you in mind. I'm not alone in a homeschool victory or defeat any more. Every book that I devour in the quiet of the night... I dog-ear the pages that I want to share with you. When I'm awake, praying in the night, I know that one of you is out there doing the same. It's because of your presence here that I put some extra thought into my day... choose to make lovely not just make due... remember that I'm held accountable... that it's all a gift from God... that blog friends ARE real friends.
YOU are the muchness of this blog!
