Forever 17

I quietly sneak up on you, knowing you are always there. Your intriguing stories pull me in like a warm hug. My mind sometimes scattered , I search you for the answers my heart and mind are asking. I often come to you when I am in need of guidance, I often visit in need of a friend.

When we first started this I was very lost , a woman trapped in her own thoughts wondering if I was truly alone in the world. The everyday life that sometimes gets you down has found a new light . Anonymous strangers glimpsing at moments in my life with encouragement and kind words. Nameless faces with Posts that are written with such talent I only hope I could one day possess.

This community of online friends, supporters, mothers,  sisters ,all of the above, have sincerely changed my life. The courageous tales and heartfelt truths have not only helped heal me but have helped me find me.

At every turn you find an amazing story that might make you chuckle, might make you cry, might give you an idea for dinner or maybe just maybe, might change your life.

You may not know I exist , you might disagree with my comments. I may have shared a relatable story , I have been completely honest with who I am and poured my heart into every post. This place has become my solitude and my therapy. I’m not a writer or some super smart Guru with all the answers, but what I do know is I am a BlogHer.

So as I continue down this path, I pray and I hope that one day I will be fully engulfed in all that this Blog truly offers, And if I have one reader or a hundred, I am so grateful to be apart of this community. I thank each and every one of you, because without even knowing it, you have made my life a better place.
