I get a few messages a month about our blog and they're always so encouraging and wonderful! A reminder that our blog does reach other people besides our family and friends. Here's one I received tonight:
I found your blog on some random website one night, and am in love with it. Your postings are so tender and full of love and hope for this life and your family. You've inspired me to fill my heart with love and share it with those around me. Your daughter is adorable. I've hipped my boyfriend to your page, and I spied him reading through it the other day. Shocker. I think it's opened his mind to the possibilities of a happy life and having a family, too. Thanks!! You and your hubby are so young and taking on so much, but are definitely on the right path. I wish I had been as brave as you are when I was your age. I've always been afraid to struggle with motherhood, because I remember the struggles that my Mom went through to raise me at a young age. You are blessed to have such a loving and supportive family. That truely makes a difference. It's also cool to read about how integral faith is within your life. You will truely succeed. You and your husband are such a cute couple. The two of you exude a certain type of freedom and funk that is vital to living the best life possible.
Its a big deal to me that our faith is evident through our postings and the way we live. Its always nice to hear that people can tell that its important to us and to the way we raise our family. I received a message earlier today that really hurt, and this message came at the right time. Hallelujah!
