We never truly know who is 'watching' or 'observing' us. We never truly know how far reaching our choices and actions will carry. I often find myself just going through the motions of daily life. Unaware of the impression I may be leaving. Until recently.
A dear friend contacted me a few weeks ago and thanked me. She was touched by a certain post that really meant a lot to her. This came as a surprise. I was actually considering shutting my blog down. Turning it off completely. I'm so glad I didn't.
It means the world to me that she found comfort. There isn't a greater compliment than that. Just to know that my words helped her feel like she wasn't alone.
I really don't think I'd still be posting here if it wasn't for her letting me know that I had made a difference. Which got me thinking how many times have I walked away from a blog post without commenting or letting the author know how much I appreciated their words? What events could unfold by my not expressing gratitude or vice versa...expressing my gratitude? I'd rather not leave that to chance.
