Thank you

Here I am...1:30 p.m. on a snowy Saturday afternoon. Everyone in the house is sleeping. Husband. Son. Daughter. Cat.

I just ate some really tasty enchiladas (not made by me) and am about to enjoy a gooey, chocolately brownie (not made by me).

I'm tired, and my bed is calling me for a quick nap. But I have chicken pot pie fixings simmering on the stove (made by me) and something on my heart to blog about.

So here goes:

Thank you.

Thank you.

Thank you.

For what you might ask?

For reading.

For commenting.

For caring.

For following my story.

For be interested in my journey.

For praying.

For your words of encouragement.

I don't know what you're all looking for when you come here, but for some reason you keep coming back. I'm nearing 100,000 visits.

What?

What?!

Who are you people?

Obviously that does not mean 100,000 unique visitors, but still.

I'm in awe. And humbled. And grateful. And filled with a grand desire for God to be glorified through this blog, through our story, through our journey as rocky and unattractive as it may be sometimes.

Lately, I think to myself, "If this blog were any more depressing, I might need to shut it down." I don't even want to read it some days. And I certainly don't want to write some days.

But I write anyway. And you keep reading - even though there are plenty of other amazing blogs out there to read. Like Pioneer Woman. Or MckMama.

So thank you.

Thank you for reading. For visiting. For sharing your stories.

Thank you for trusting in the One who is writing your story.

Thank you for following the journey of my family.

And most of all, thank you for faithfully running your race right alongside me, even when your side aches, you're dirty, sweaty and smelly, and the end is nowhere in sight. Your lives and your stories inspire me to persevere and I'm incredibly grateful.

It's been a joy to read your stories and learn what God has done for you. I'm excited for what He has in store for me, too! :-)

I have loved keeping in touch with you via reading! But don't worry, ha ha, I do read the Pioneer Woman too. After all, she is my kind of gal, from Oklahoma and all. =)
