It's a happy BlogHer Friday!

4 years ago

Today's mail delivered a heaping dose of joy, affirmation, excitement, and hope... in the form of nothing more than a piece of printed paper folded and tucked into a thin white window envelope.


Joy... because this is the very first time I've ever been paid for my writing.

Affirmation... because something I wrote was, in someone else's eyes, worthy of payment for publication.

Excitement... because I FINALLY get to deposit something into my cobweb-gathering business bank account!

Hope... because maybe, some day, something else I write will have the same fate.

My day has officially been made. What an amazing way to start the weekend!

Thank you, BlogHer... for this and so, so much more.
