{ Thank You! }

2009_06200057

I was puttering around my blog earlier today and came across my list of followers. Usually, I don't take much notice, I mean, I do see the followers and all the pretty faces but I don't take note of the number.

Until earlier today!

Good Golly Miss Molly, I have the most amazing readers. Thank you all, all 313 followers, truly, from the bottom of my heart, Thank You!

You know I started blogging 4 years ago, just on a whim, I had been blog reading for a while but never quite felt comfortable enough to open my own space, to write anything, I mean, I'm just a simple woman, a mom, a military wife, a homemaker. Who would be interested in anything I have to write?

But over the years I have come to love my little corner on the web.

I have met amazing women and men of all walks of life, of all different ages and different cultures but bonded by one thing in common, the love for our families.

And I'm always amazed and touched when I post about my life and my days and are met with so many wonderful comments, so many words of encouragement.

I don't think I've ever truly thanked you all for the time you take to stop by and say hi, even when I have nothing interesting going on.

You inspire me. You make me want to keep blogging about everything and anything, and if by some chance I give even just one person out there, hope or motivation or a simple smile, then my time is well spent.

Just know that every single one of your comments means the world to me. You guys rock!

Its not so easy to find military housewives that are settled and really happy to be just that. And who love being at home with their kids. Sounds like a crazy thing to say but its my truth...and why I enjoy stopping in and visiting with you pretty much daily.
