I count yesterday as being a very good day. OK, I wasn’t feeling too spry but that isn’t the only way to look at any individual day.
I got to spend some time with my niece Sara. Sara was away last year having won a scholarship to attend a university in Germany. She enjoyed the experience so much she decided to return this year in a part time teaching role. She was in fact back here in Winnipeg for a visit over the Christmas break. Sadly, today she is back on a plane for Germany.l I am both proud and consider myself very lucky to have such a wonderful young lady as my niece.
Yesterday, I was doing a little poking around here in the blog. I have been watching with fascination as the number of hits continues to rise. I don’t pay nearly as much attention to that number as I once did but I do check it occasionally. Somehow yesterday it hit me differently. I saw 238,000 hits. It came to me, that is almost a quarter of a million hits. That realization really sat me back in my chair. “whoa, a quarter of a million, there has to be some mistake here”. I actually, signed out of the system and came back to check it again. There it was the same number again, well actually it was 4 hits higher.
I truly can’t seem to get my head wrapped around this whole thing. What am I doing to warrant so much attention. I know many carefully research what they are going to write about, spend much time writing, editing all all such.
I do nothing, I treat this as my journal. I simply sit down and write what ever thoughts are in my head at that time. I just write what ever comes, when I am finished up it goes exactly as it, no proof reading nothing. OK, I do spell check but that is it.
What I do have is a routine that I always follow before writing anything. I say a little prayer asking for guidance. For help in finding the words that may help or inspire someone out there, anyone out there. I then call upon all the Angels in the Heavens to gather around me to help me hear and understand Our Father’s Message. Credit should be given where it is due.
