I started blogging more regularly in Oct. 2008. That was 19 months ago.
It was a new venture for me... a way to journal out my thoughts and feelings, to express my hurts and my struggles. It was also a way for me to celebrate the memories. To talk about my precious Brayden and share the ways he has impacted our life.
I never imagined anyone would read my blog. I didn't consider that people would be interested in my writings.
I had no idea how much it would help in my healing and grief journey to blog.
Yet here we are... May of 2010. This is my 100th post.
I have friends, family, and even unmet strangers (I now consider friends!) who tell me they are encouraged by my writing. That our story has touched them as well.
I have people who "follow" my blog and check in to see the latest post.
That means a lot to me.
It's encouraging more than words could say to know that there is beauty in the midst of pain. That through my suffering, others have been blessed.
I pray that this continues... I pray that my story, my life, my pain.. will be used for God's glory and that he will bring it all together for the good.
I am so thankful for the opportunities to reach out. To speak encouragement, and to celebrate the bits of healing along this journey.
Thank you all for sharing this part of my journey with me.
