I Thank You

They say time flies by, but I’ve noticed it’s more like a track meet at the long jump competition where they dash to the line and jump an enormous amount of feet in the air.

While some days it feels like time is a perpetual turning on clock hands that never stop, sometimes time flows as swiftly as a river’s current on its way to other places.

Today when I opened up my notifications, this picture greeted me! Four years of blogging! FOUR YEARS!! What? Who? When? Where did four years go?

I thought about where I was four years ago today. Back then, a few days before, I had been released from a week long unexpected hospital stay and was sent home thinking I had the possibility of having something pretty catastrophic wrong with me.

In the wee hours of this anniversary night four years ago, I hid in my closet and somehow figured out how to set up a blog! I was one of those “I’m never going to blog” girls, but sickness and the thought I might not have much time to spare, shifted things very quickly.

I had no idea how to blog, so I bought “WordPress For Dummies” and I figured it out step by step. Pure determination.

So, today I’m going to celebrate the fact that they were wrong about me, that I’m still here, and that I’m so grateful for this blog. I’ve made a lot of friends by blogging and it’s been amazing adventure of creativity and self expression in my writing and photography. To be able to share things with the world is such a gift.

Whatever your part in my journey has been, I thank you. ❤️

  1. Well Jessica this is a wonderful. I wish you another 4 years and much more. I have found in my dealings with doctors and illness – that they underestimate the power of God and prayer. Love n hugs to you blogger friend.

    • Hey sweetheart, thank you so much! I’ll gladly accept those next four years plus many more. ❤️ Sounds like you’ve had some experiences of your own. I agree with what you said and I’ll even throw in Angels, for good measure. 😇 Thanks for being my friend, we go back a few years. Your blog posts are inspiring, thought provoking, and uplifting!

  2. Four years is a long time. Congratulations on the anniversary and for sticking with something. I know a lot of people quit over time. But I’ve come to learn, this is a pretty great place to be.
