End of a Year

As I started trying to write our year-in-review letter, I realized it was going to be harder than I thought to sum up 365 days in one page. To get started, I read back over my blog entries for the past year and unlike my sister who thinks blogging is self-serving, I rather enjoyed reliving some of those days. For me, blogging has become a type of journaling, I suppose. Having a record of some of my joys, thoughts, struggles, frustrations, accomplishments, etc. and the mere act of putting them into legible words gives me a sense of clarity, sometimes relief, sometimes sharing.

I started blogging in April 2007, 278 posts ago. I know I have a faithful few who pop in regularly and comment, and then there are those who read but never comment, but it doesn't matter. I do enjoy the comments. It lets me know you're out there. It's always a surprise when someone says "I saw that on your blog . . ." and I didn't even know they knew I had one!

Happy New Year!

I love your blog and am glad I found it. I think if we met in real life, we would get along great! I hope only the best for you and your family in 2011.

I enjoy reading your blog and I write mine in the same way. And also, I hope mine might serve as a place where my children and maybe their children will get to know me a little better, if they so choose. I would have loved to read my parents journals, to know them on a real and deeper level, apart from being a parent. They didn't keep them and they died before we had the time to really communicate. Happy New Year! I love the bunnies too! Seems you already how a leg up on the next holiday!
