Every day I look forward to sitting down at the computer and going thru my Friend Feed - seeing what everyone is accomplishing and reading new blogs. This truly is an amazing site with some of the most generous, caring people on it. I talk about a lot of people I've met here to my husband and sometimes he gets this look trying to remember who "so & so" is... and then I remind him- spark! He doesn't quite understand how I can feel like I have friendships with so many people I've never met :) But he doesn't realize the depth of support that is here. Comments, mail, goodies - just taking the time to encourage someone can go a long way in the battle to lose weight, get healthy or keep spirits uplifted. We all know life can be so hard. I've read too many blogs of women losing their babies, or people will ill family members, family losing jobs ~ and yet through it all, there is still hope. I guess that's what I love so much. We live in a world with so much negativity and unhappiness & yet, here is a place where people care about you for you. It doesn't matter if you're overweight and feeling ugly. No one cares - it's about each of us being a person. Not being defined by our weight or our status in life.
So, I'm feeling overwhelmed with joy this morning b/c I have met some amazing people on this site. I'm thrilled for all of the members who reach out to each other with love and encouragement. To anyone who reads this blog today, please know that you are special to me. I care about each and every one of you. And I thank you for ALL of your kindness and support. I hope everyone has a great week. Merry Christmas & Happy Hannukah (Sorry, no idea how to spell that). Love you all!!!
