You know, the next time I’m feeling down I should just check out all the bloggy love that sits in my spam box. People I don’t even know complimenting me and my blog, or asking for my help. Here are a sample:
“Every weekend i used to visit this web site, because i want enjoyment, since this this web site conations actually pleasant funny data too.”
“Yߋu actuаlly maκe itt ѕeem so easy with yօur pressentation ƅut ӏ find tҺis topic to Ƅe гeally somethng that I think I woul nevеr understand. It seems too complex ɑnd very broad for mе. ӏ’m looҝing forward fߋr youur neҳt post, I’ll try tо gеt thе hanng of іt!” ~~ Asian Women Dating Services
These know how to make me feel helpful:
“Hmm is anyone else having problems with the images on this blog loading? I’m trying to find out if its a problem on my end or if it’s the blog. Any feed-back would be greatly appreciated.” ~~ Felon Clothing
“I know this if off topic but I’m looking into starting my own blog and was wondering what all is needed to get setup?
I’m assuming having a blog like yours would cost a pretty penny?
I’m not very internet savvy so I’m not 100% certain. Any tips or advice would be greatly appreciated. Appreciate it.”
All kidding aside, I was touched by the outpouring of support I received after my The end of Johnny & Ann?! post. THANK YOU. To all of you who wrote comments of encouragement. To those of you who reached out to chat, who followed up the next day and the day after that, and even today, just to see if I was okay. To those who took the time to use my “contact me” page to send me emails with kind words.
All of you. Thank you.
It’s been a really hard few days. I’ve been in a fog, crying or just staring off into space. I had stuff to do at work that has been ignored. My son has been a good distraction but I have this weight of sadness that just won’t lift. My son is off with his Dad now (his first weekend back from his job), and I can’t tell you what I’ve done with the last three hours.
Johnny and I did talk on the phone last night. It was a sober conversation. I’m not recounting it here…but we are talking about what is next. How to move forward. How this has changed things, and what to do about it.
One comment on his blog last night used the hashtag #TeamAJ. It brought some levity to our conversation and for that we were both grateful.
