I am sitting here wishing I had something totally fun and profound for my 1 year anniversary post, but I got nuthin’! Yup, a lot of nuthin’.
I am ever so thankful for blogging. It started as a fun hobby to share pictures and random thoughts and support some blogging friends. It has become so much more. I have “met” some fantastic people through blogging. And gained some amazing prayer support from those other bloggers.
The Lord has also used the blogging mightily as I walk through postpartum depression. It was one of the things that became a struggle to continue to do as I withdrew into my darkness, but also became a path back into the light. It started with the Saturday Snapshots over on An Ordinary Mom’s blog and from there I found other blog hops for inspiration and ideas. I will be forever indebted to these bloggers and the encouragement they were to me.
Blogging has also become my way to share some information. While I was expecting Patrice, I shared some information about breech presentation babies. I am hoping it helps other mamas if they end up in a similar situation and then when I decided I would share about the PPD, I hope other mamas will find my posts and maybe it will help them walk through the darkness. I have benefitted greatly from encouragement from others in the on-line world and hope I can contribute the same for others.
Overall, I see this blog as something the Lord has used in my life and I hope He will use it for His glory as I continue sharing here.
Many blessings to you on my blogaversary!Survive til you Thrive!
