because...you just never know!

i just have to say to all of you bloggers out there, whether you be family, friend, acquaintance, or stranger, KEEP IT UP! you guys rock!

this whole blogging world has amazed me from the time i joined ranks and started my own blog! i've made new friends that i may never meet face to face, i've come to know a different side of those friends i see weekly, and have learned things about them i probably never would have learned were it not for the blog! i've been able to stay a little more connected to my sister who lives on an island in the pacific that i talk to weekly, but still miss dearly! i'm able to share more pictures with my family than i ever was able to before! i've laughed, i've cried, i've rejoiced, i've pondered, i've resolved to be better as i've read so many, of your posts. i've gained so much from each one of you, whether you know it or not!

then, just last week i received a comment from a perfect stranger. he thanked me for my blog and told me that me and my blog had really made a difference in his day. then, this morning i received another comment, this time from his wife, in which she thanked me for being an inspiration for her.

so, i mosied over to their blog and found this (mind you, this is from someone i've never met, and probably never will meet)!!

in short, your little blog could make a difference in the lives of one or many! so, keep plunking away on your little keyboards and sharing your lives!

because....you just never know!

Hey, wait a minute. The above blog was supposed to be from Elizabeth, not Lester. But I'm sure Lester would think it sweet, too! :-)

Wow! How cool. I jumped over to the link as well and it was nice to read his blog about you.
It motivates me to write more meaningful things in our blog as well as frequent others blogs more regularly for inspiration & to be uplifted.
How cool.

That is so cool! I've heard of a few things like this happening and I think it's amazing how the internet, and specifically blogs, can connect complete strangers.

I'm just one of those moochers who does not take the time to create her own blog, but enjoys spending time every day reading other peoples'. Your blog is so sweet; it is definately on my bookmarks. I not only enjoy reading your posts, but I like to keep your music playing on a loop in the background once I move on. :) I feel like I know you even though we have only met a few times. Thanks Mahina
