In just a few weeks, I will have been blogging for one year. I never could have conceived back then what blogging would come to mean to me. I didn't know that I would "meet" so many wonderful people or that I would come to care about them all so much. We share our joys, sorrows, highs and lows. We love seeing pictures of each others children and grandchildren. They make me accountable for my weight loss goals. These people inspire me daily. But....there are two very special blogging friends who I don't know how I've lived without all these years.
First, there is Rhonda. Believe it or not, we live less than 15 miles away from each other. Needless to say, we have met in person. She holds a full time job. She is a wonderful wife and mother and a very doting mimi. She is on the same weight loss/healthy lifestyle journey that I am on and she is doing so good at it. She is a total inspiration to me.
Second, there is Sharon. Unfortunately, we have not met in person. She lives on the east coast. I don't remember how we actually found each other, but I sure am glad we did. Nobody leaves a comment on a post like Sharon. Nobody writes on their blog like she does either. She brings tears to my eyes so often. She turned 57 a few months ago and has begun her 57 in 52. A few of her 57 so far have been skydiving, pole dancing, ice skating at Rockefeller Center and writing a childrens book. Needless to say, my inspiration.
Lastly, someday, someway, sometime, the three of us are going to be in the same place at the same time and we are going to have one hell of a time together. I love you girls!! Thank you for being my friends.
