The Year in Review
It’s my first blogaversary and I’m ready to celebrate with an Amazon Gift Card Giveaway! This week a year ago, I took the plunge, went self-hosted and started writing to you from my own little piece of the great big Web. I want to take a moment to thank each of you who has visited, commented and made me feel like a part of a welcoming community. I’ve learned a lot, met some great new blogger friends and enjoyed sharing my small victories with you every step of the way. So, from the bottom of my heart, thank you for reading.
Thanks and Praise
I write in the hopes that I help one RA patient find hope and a new perspective on dealing with RA. One person who enjoys a good book to read and discuss like we’re old friends chatting over a cup of coffee. One person who finds a delicious recipe to feed their mind, body and soul. To you all who have commented and sent me kind words through email and social media, I give my sincere thanks. You keep me blogging! Here are some recent compliments that warmed my heart, the small victories that make my day. So keep on commenting, I treasure each one!
“Loved what you have to say! Have had RA for 40 years. Although the treatment gets better, it is by sheer will power that I, too, have managed to raise my kids, work full time, and survive. I love your positive approach, so much more empowering than some of the “poor me” blogs out there right now. I wish you good health and happiness. For someone with RA, every day is a small victory! ~Rosie
“really beautiful. I couldn’t imagine doing it all w RA. You have so much strength.” ~ Allison @godansker
“Thanks for stopping by my blog! It’s nice to “meet” you My aunt was diagnosed with RA when she was in her early 20′s and I know how hard it can be to manage day-to-day life let alone raising children when you have RA. Small victories are definitely something to celebrate! ~ Hannah at www.supermommyornot.blogspot.com
