Just stopping in today to say THANK YOU for your continued support. I started this blog two years ago and never in my wildest dreams did I think that it would grow as big as it has! Thank you for stopping by and reading, leaving wonderful comments, voting for my blog on popular sites and sharing it with friends. Your support means the world to me and I am so grateful and honored!
If you've been following me since the beginning or during MDAs first year you would have noticed that my posts have become sparse and that I never share anything personal on here anymore. I took a break needing to go inward and needing some privacy to deal with all of the curve balls that life has been throwing at me these days. But I also choose to not write about my personal life because I wasn't sure how YOU, the readers of MDA, would respond.
I continue to find huge comfort and relief in others bloggers writing by knowing someone else had been through something similar and therefore removing the loneliness and frustration I've often felt as a parent and as a woman. Some posts have opened my eyes to things I didn't previously understand and have changed the way I think. Taking a break has helped me to understand that as long as I'm not going out there with the intention of hurting or offending there's nothing wrong with expressing an opinion AND that it's actually necessary where blogging is concerned.
I wish there was more time in the day and that I could say with great certainty that you will be seeing a lot more posts around here. However, spending quality time with my son and taking time for myself are still my greatest priorities and will continue to come first. I can, however, promise you, quality posts written from the heart that at times will be messy and convoluted like life. My heart is BURSTING at the seams with stories- about parenting, living gluten free, postpartum depression, abusive relationships, single parenting, weight loss and most recently my sons journey in diagnoses with what I believe to be Sensory Processing Disorder. Did you get all that?!
Seriously, I AM BURSTING with things I need to share and I hope that, you, my readers will respond positively. I also hope to hear your stories and feature some of them on here too. Sharing is a source of great healing and in doing so I hope that together can create awareness, inspire others and that ultimately this blog will be better for it.
