...and I would write 1000 more...

I had the whole beach to myself!
This is my 1000th post.

I can't believe I've hit "publish" a thousand times any more than I can believe that there are any people out there who want read what I have to say.

I started this blog entirely for myself in a dark and lonely time.  I stumbled across another blog that was so refreshingly honest about single motherhood that I felt like I might not be alone in how I was feeling.  I felt like it might be okay to write and tell the truth about how crappy my life was.

Then things got better.  I wrote about that too.

And then after "better" life kept going.  So I wrote about that.

By then it was a habit, but also an outlet.  I couldn't stop.

Getting to know people entirely through this venue has been a wonderful gift.  It has helped me to have a starting point for conversation with people already in my life.  It has helped me to get rid of the Crazies.  I'm grateful for the connections I've made.  I'm grateful for the opportunity to write every day.

I'm grateful that my blog has helped me discover what I want to do from here.

So now I'm going to go away forever.

Juuuuuuuuuuuuust kidding.

But I thought 1000 warranted comment.
