I can't believe its been a year since my little trembling fingers started clicking on the keyboard in hopes of trying to release the frustration filled days that had become my life and to help with rebuilding my writing and expression skills.
When I first started blogging March 1, 2010 ~ I had no idea/belief that a year later I would still be clicking away on my keyboard. Nor had I imagined the impact that blogging would have on me. Looking back over this past year, I can say without a doubt that blogging saved me (there were some very dark times that I did not share, perhaps one day).
I may not have realized the power of BlogLand but my Angels sure did ~ they always seemed to connect me with just the right BlogFriend who was writing about something that I needed to read. Or sometimes I found myself sharing more about me than I had expected ~ and then I would get a comment or email from someone saying how much that post had made a positive difference to them.
This past year BlogLand has reached and touched me, when psychologists failed; given me encouragement and support, when family and friends could not; forced me to look at the half full glass, when all I could see was emptiness; but most of all it has inspired me to give back, stay postive, stick with something and the desire to move forward.
Blogging is something that I would not have entered into pre-accident ~ after all I was busy with my High Heeled Life. But, Blogging is certainly part of my post-accident life and I hope that with help from my Angels I will inspire others to keep going no matter what detours their lives may take.

P.S. I would like to thank Mr. G. for being the one to remember that I started blogging a year ago! and for encouraging me to write when I can't even get my butt out of bed (he literally brings my lap top upstairs,sets it up on the bed and keeps checking until I start clicking on the key board.)
