Giving out some blog love

I wish this were the post that says I am feeling so much better. I'm not. I am still quite exhausted and drained but I am still here and I guess that's a good thing. Instead this is a post to say thank you...thank you...thank you! Thank you for listening and understanding and for caring and for your encouraging support. It means a hell of a lot to me that someone listened. Even though no one can fix how I feel, it makes me feel a whole lot less alone.

With that said, I also want to mention that I love reading your blogs and the many others that I try to visit each day as time warrants. I don't always get a chance to comment because that is way too hard with one or two children on my lap. I picture your blog, like it's your house and when I visit your blog it's like I am visiting your house. I get to visit you without having to pack up 3 kids and put them in their car seats. Reading blogs puts me in contact with other human beings and helps keep me sane. There are a lot of amazing blogs out there...some of my favorite blogs are those with very few readers or commenter's and although I occasionally read some of the "big" name blogs, honestly none of them are my favorites to read. Dare I say, that I don't think the best writers are those that are well known? I'm not saying that their not good writers...I'm just saying it's my opinion that there are some brilliant writers out there and not all of them are well known.

Some blogs make me laugh...some make me cry...some are very deep and make me think...some are informative and I learn something new...some just make me feel "normal" because they are so open, honest and real about day to day life. In the short time that I have been blogging and reading blogs I have come to realize that everyone blogs for different reasons and purposes. For whatever reasons people blog, two things stands out to me and that is we like to write and we all have the need to be listened to.

Anyways...I just want to send out some blog love to all of you that make my days bearable and keep me sane...for making me smile and laugh and think and yes, sometimes cry. Thank you for sharing your life with me. I think your great!

Ha...your "about me" caught my eye today and I was thinking of what MY Mom's would say....."50 this year and Mom to 9....two teenagers still in the house....grandmother to 10...still working hard as a CNA in the Psych ward of a hospital and I'm really glad I have the keys because I have a lot in common with my patients"!!! Thought that might be good for a laugh!!! have a great day!
