Suicide, that is.
No, I’m not going to link you to the definition, because that might include ways people commit suicide, and that could be a trigger for someone who’s struggling.
I just wanted to share with you something that one of my friends shared this morning.
The parents of the boy who took his own life have posted a video about losing him, and about suicide in general. I’d encourage you to take the 5 or so minutes out of your day and watch it. I was just about in tears earlier this morning.
Yes, this does maybe give you an idea of where I live. (If you’re paying attention.)
No, that doesn’t bother me as much as it would’ve a year ago.
Just don’t come stalking me or anything.
Also, yesterday was the one-year anniversary of when I started blogging.
Blog-i-versary, as it’s called by many.
And I missed it.
Oh well! 🙂
Three hundred and twenty nine (330 with this one) posts.
Over 900 comments.
When I started blogging, I didn’t really care about number of “followers” or how often I would blog or how many “hits” I’d get every day or anything like that.
I was just blogging to blog.
Just writing to share my thoughts and my heart.
And look how far it’s gotten me!
Three hundred and thirty posts. That’s almost a post a day! 😀
In a year, I have shared a lot.
I’m not going to list everything here, because I’m in a bit of a hurry (helping someone move today!) and I have no idea how I’d categorize all of these posts, so I’ll let you look for yourself.
But to think.
Without this blog, I might not have learned some of the things I’ve learned.
Without connecting with some other bloggers, I might not have grown as much as I have.
Without sharing my thoughts and dreams and frustrations here, I might have kept them all hidden inside.
Without this blog, I might not be the person I am.
And you had a hand in that!
So thank you! For encouraging, for sharing, for long, for praying, and of course for reading!
I appreciate it all.
