Ha! It is so not what you think!! What I really need is help…therapy… I have begun to be obsessed over how many "hits" my space here is getting… I had so many when I was featured, and I still seem to get several visitors (those who don’t leave notes, that is… I know of and am grateful to those of you who actually let me know you have visited, and I try to visit you as well). Somedays, though, the numbers are so low… and I get to feeling "does anyone care? Is my blog getting dull?". I have to remind myself that I did not start this blog as a popularity contest, or to become famous, so I just need to get over myself! Why does it matter to me? I know my life is rather basic, not like some wonderfully exciting novel… I mean, I like my life, but no one else needs to be interested in it…. Do I need recognition, validation so desperately?? Hmmm….maybe. And that, my friends, is rather sad, don’t you think? No, seriously, I am just fine… I am a happy person, which is amazing to me when I think about it. Because I was unhappy for so long. A woman I know from church, she is a counselor and does a lot with marriage ministries in the area, she was talking to Alan and I about doing a class, and she said how far I have come since she first met me a few years ago… how I now "smile with my eyes", and I had such sadness when she first met me…. Alright, so that said, what is my problem??! Perhaps my problem is that I am normal. We all want to be recognized, noticed, heard.…don’t we? So, I will just take a moment to laugh at myself, and get on with my blogging for the reason I began it… "just because". (Would it kill you to sign my guestbook, though??!!) Just kidding! Sort of.
