This post brings to a close not only another calendar year for me but rounds out eighteen months of blogging. How thankful I am for this endeavor.
Why I’m thankful for Seemingly Ordinary.
It’s kept me accountable when I wanted to stop.
It’s prodded me to be grateful when I felt like griping.
It gives me an excuse to sit at my computer, drink coffee and eat cookies.
It’s been an impetus for me to tackle something new and challenging.
It has continued to remind me of the brevity and preciousness of life.
If one post has brightened one person’s day then I count it as successful.
There have been collateral benefits as well. There was a huge learning curve for me before I ever posted for the first time. I had to become familiar with a whole bunch of things having to do with websites and URLs and links. The added bonus is that I also started a job this year where the skills have come in so very handy.
These eighteen months have kept me laughing at myself, MOMD and the hooligans.
I’m brought back to the fact that we are all uniquely created to impact our world in a positive way.
I like telling my stories. I’m happier than you might imagine to be able to do so tapping away on a keyboard as opposed to standing up in front of people to do so.
The fact that this year ends on a Thursday is just one more reason for Thankful Thursday.
Thank you for reading. Some of you have been with me through this journey for the entire eighteen months. Your comments have encouraged me. Some of you have come along in the last month or so. If you are fairly new I would ask that you go back and read some of the earlier posts so you can confirm what you already may have been thinking. I’m just a seemingly ordinary person who believes that gratefulness matters.
You are more than welcome to leave a comment below.
Happy New Year!
