For the last few weeks I have been reading this blog every morning when I wake up. It is an inspiring blog written with emotion and honesty. I can not relate to everything the writer is going through right now as I do not have children of my own but so much of it reminds me of how and why I started blogging. I empathize with the writer as I understand what feels like will be an endless battle against the entire world. It makes me want to be there for them. To give them a hug and help in any way I could. I may never meet the writer to do those things. But, I know them in a way better than those that have. I can see a raw and unfinished side of them through the words. The picture I see is something wonderful. My heart goes out to them in their life struggle. I wish them the best and encourage them to continue.
Someone once told me they felt like they knew who I was through my blog. I understand how they felt now. I know there is more to us then what we but in our blog. Everyone has to censor some things when you know it is out in the public. I have posted my share of things that I shouldnt have and dealt with the fallout from them. It isn't easy when you want to pour everything out in to a puddle of words and let everyone see. But if not done carefully someone will jump in your puddle and make it all muddy.
I like having this blogging friend. You inspire me to continue.
