Thanks to You...

Just a note to let you know that I'm still here...

I've been so busy lately I haven't had a chance to post the good, newsy, thoughts-of-my-soul, sort of post I've been longing to. I love to hear from you...for me, there is nothing quite like the thrill I get when I see an email proclaiming "you have received a new comment" sitting in my inbox waiting for me. The honest-to-goodness reason I have comment moderation enabled is not because I am worried about inappropriate comments, but is because I am afraid of missing one! *blushes*

I'll be sharing more about my life can count on it! Even if I'm the only one reading it, it does wonders for my soul to tap out the thoughts that are stirring in my head and refuse to be quieted; it's somehow heartening to see them neatly typed out and in print.

Thank you so much for the support and encouragement you continually give to me! Truthfully, I've considered abandoning my blog a good many times...mostly because of how time consuming it can be, and as embarrassing as it sounds, if I get an idea in my head that my writing is boring and not up to par, or that I have no one caring to read, I can easily get discouraged and think that it's not worth the effort. I'm always encouraged to keep going, though, by your sweet comments...I think I'd really miss writing here if I ever decided to stop. Who knew blogging could be so much fun?

Much love,

Emily, good to see you back! I'm so glad you're still keeping up the blog. I understand those feelings of not being sure if what you write is of any interest to anyone, but please know... you're such a beautiful, eloquent writer, and I'm always inspired by your blog. Please keep it up!

Oh, Emily, never, ever be discouraged or disheartened about your writing! It is amazingly wonderful!!! Keep writing! Don't stop the fingers flying over the keys or the thoughts flying through your head. I know they inspire you as well as they inspire us.:)

Blessings galore!!

Thank you so much, Clare and Emma, for you sweet words...they mean ever so much to me coming from such two lovely ladies, who just so happen to be two lovely writers themselves. ☺

You'll never know how much you have touched me today...

I love you both,

I know so well what it is like to find blogging/writing discouraging, Emily. I've been working on the same story for more than five years now! And as for blogging -- it is so easy to let days or even a week go by without posting something new that sometimes I feel like I'm just failing completely and should give up. Like you said, though, blogging is so much fun, and it helps put a different perspective on things to write about them. It helps me notice the little things about my daily life and remember things I might have forgotten. I have enjoyed reading your blog so much! You make it so interesting with all the pictures and quotes from old movie stars and your own eloquent writing. Don't give up!!
