This morning we walked. A long, hard walk.
And we talked about….You. He asked me what I’m grateful for and I said: God, Him, Home, Dog….and You.
You who come here every day and share your lives with us. You who come here every day and don’t judge me and my typos or my obscenely excessive use of the word “awesome” or my utter and total lack of cool. You.
You who take the time out of work, life, kids, laundry and school to stop by every day and tell us that you were here. To sprinkle a little love when you didn’t have to. And to quite honestly, make our whole day in the process. You.
If I’m being totally honest, I pray for you guys every day. I hope that’s not weird. :) But I do. I pray that you will be safe in whatever you’re doing and that your lives will be blessed with the same kind of happiness & abundance that you bring to ours. I don’t normally talk about those sorts of things. But today it just seemed right.
Because today, I am especially grateful for You.
Grateful and acutely aware that we need to be doing more to hold up our end of the bargain. See, I’m so grateful for the community that You have built here. Not us. You. And in the process I am also so, so aware that we need to be doing more to encourage that. Because I want this to be a place where anyone, whether you’re brand new just starting out with no idea what you’re doing or a seasoned pro who’s been in the game for a while and is in real need of starting over, can come and get answers without anyone making you feel stupid or small. Because believe me, we got more than enough of that when we first getting started to go around. A place where it’s ok to not have it all figured out. Because we certainly don’t. And we certainly don’t have all the answers. But I bet we can figure it out a lot faster together than we ever could on our own.
So we want to try something a little different today. We want to set this post up as an open forum of sorts. Whatever questions you have, whatever you’re struggling with….just throw it out there. We’ll be hopping on to answer as much as we can. But like we said, we definitely don’t have all the answers. So my hope for this, is that we will all start to help one another. That you’ll feel free to answer each other’s questions. Because that’s what it’s all about. Because we’re better together, we’re stronger together. And none of us is as smart as all of us. :)
