I think one of the reasons blog friends can be so real is our ability to be open and honest with our stories. We feel less alone, stronger, sometimes if we allow it... even loved.
Emma Lou Thayne, author and poet shares her feelings about our stories.
"...our stories are what make the difference,
and if we can tell them honestly
we can hope to help each other.
In the end, we have nothing to offer
each other but our stories. "
I love my blog for the reason of having a place to share my story, my struggle, and my heart. Sometimes I think I love it even more because I love sharing in others' stories. I take great courage in every story I read here in blog land. There are so many HEROS out there.
We can make it through, one day, one hour, one story at a time.
I know the struggle is worth it, I know it with every part of who I AM!
