My hundreth-postaversary!

I don't think that is officially a word, but I like it.

I looked at my dashboard thing, and it says that I have done 99 posts. 99 times I have sat here at my computer and shared how my day was, my frustrations, my joys, my kids messes... with my great family and people I love! 99 times of doing something other than housework. 99 times of kicking my husband off the computer so I could blog. 99 times I have sat here and thought about how grateful I am that Rachel was online at the same time I was and we chatted a few months ago, or I wouldn't have known about this little circle of closeness. I wouldn't have been able to see into your lives, or realize how even though we are all so far apart, we are all going through so much the same things.

And so, even though I have other thoughts and things to blog about, I am dedicating this one to another 100 blogs: insights into my little world, my challenges, ups and downs, and my inspirations. Thank you for reading, and for caring. It means the world to me...

You know what's kinda sad? I just checked my dashboard to see when I could celebrate my 100th post - and it turns out I've already got 109. Oh well.
I really enjoy having this community too. Since you're my sister, yours is one of my favorites to read. I love having this look into your life, more frequent and visual than our phone conversations (which of course I also love!), and knowing that you were the one who helped me set up my blog and enter this world of connection with you.

I know what you mean about the blogging cutting down on the distance between all of us. It's always fun to get on my computer and see that someone has something new posted so that I can go read what's happening in their lives. And I love getting on my own blog and seeing that someone left a comment for me :) Some days, I'm not sure exactly how I managed my day without the lift I get from sharing everything that goes through our blogs!

I'm with Calista. Even if I'm not always commenting on all yours, it is such a relief to hear I'm not the only one to have gone through this or that. Or to see how all our kids have grown and changed. Or just to have all of us 'closer' than we ever could have been growing up...(California for some, Texas, Florida, several other places...) I love the connections we have now!!
