This post is to say thank you to all the wonderful women who have been reading and commenting on my blog entries lately. I have to say, I did not think there would be people who would be interested in my life and times. When I started it was an experiment really, and a bit of an indulgence, as I really love to write.
But now, well, this blog is a link. It links me to other mamas out there that are learning the ropes along with their little ones. It links me to women who have given birth to twins and watched them thrive and grow and change and become little people. I use these links as connections to the world out there, to the world of parenting. I love seeing it done so well by so many out there. And I have to admit it helps to know other mamas are losing sleep (duh), worrying over their babies and their actions, but also reveling in the joy of this strange phenomenon of parenthood.
I want to tell all of you that when I read comments my heart feels glad and full. I know I have never ‘met’ most of you, but I feel connected and wish you lived around the block so I could drop in with the boys and say hi and kiss your little ones. Or in the case of Ava, hang out with her beautiful daughters and maybe hook them up with one of my attractive brothers (really great guys, I swear, Ava.)
I think in the future I would love to get to know all of you even more…and find ways to connect. I wish I had more time to write and comment back, I try to find time to shoot a few replies out there. But I just wanted to say thanks to you all, Ana, Bea, Kaitlyn, Steph, Ava, Eva, Rae, Jennifer, Gabrielle, Sharon and so many others. I am not kidding when I write that you are making a huge difference in this experience that we are in. Sending you great big bushels of gratitude and, really truly, joy. You are all awesome women and I look forward to watching as your lives grow and change with your children. Thank god for mama-blogging. It rocks my world.
BTW: Kaitlyn, thanks you for the Rockin Girl tag. I have no idea how to pass it on because certain computer related things pass me by completely. If anyone wants to take a little time to explain how I can send that little button thing to other mamas out there, I would be most appreciative. Smiles.
Yep, already trying to model this behavior. Hey, since I am not planning on any more and we have no girls, I have to get one to follow in my fiber footsteps.
