Don’t you love surprising someone? I do. And I love to be surprised. How often in your life are you truly surprised? Not very often…which makes it so special! I received a lovely surprise 2 weeks ago when the SITS girls contacted me and told me that today was my special day.
I’m their featured blogger today. I’ve been waiting for over a year and can’t believe today is finally my day. I love SITS because that is how I found many of my favorite blogs…and some of my regular readers found me that way too. It’s a wonderful organization of over 10,000 women bloggers dedicated to supporting one another by leaving comments. How awesome is that? If you’re not a SITS girl yet, be sure to head over there and read more about it. You won’t be disappointed.
Now back to the surprise party! I’ve made chocolate martinis, a few tasty appetizers and cleaned the old toilet bowl in honor of today. I hope you feel welcome! Today also happens to be my 700th post. Who would have thought when I started this blog 700 posts ago that I would have so much to say. It started as a way to provide hope to other parents with children diagnosed with Cri du Chat syndrome; it has grown into so much more. I hope you’ll leave here inspired, seeing the glass half-full and with a smile on your face.
Here are 3 posts that I feel sum up what my blog is all about. I hope you enjoy them and I hope you’ll be back even after the surprise party ends. Thanks for stopping by on my special day!
When you worry your child might not have ever have friends…and then you learn that she will have the best of friends…you must say thank you to those girls.
When you’re frustrated with feeling crappy about yourself all the time for no good reason…and you just want to let go…you must say “What If?” to yourself and the universe.
Finally, when you need to reflect upon what’s good in your life instead of what’s bad, you’ll see that It’s a Wonderful Life.
