My Name Is Snickerdoodle: On a serious note


On a serious note

My blog isn't my journal (by any means).
I try not to have downer posts or try to make you believe I have this fabulous life. (At least I hope you don't interpret my posts to be like that.)
I've gotten over the whole how-many-comments-have-I-gotten-today obsession.
This is a place where I can just type away (mostly incorrectly) and just be me.

Occasionally, I am blessed with a new blog friend which I absolutely love. They are strangers who I find out have some of the same common interest and for some reason keep coming back to this little blog of mine. Over time we build a wonderful web relationship and still hope that one day I will be able to meet these wonderful ladies.

Sad to say that one of my blog friends passed away from cancer this last week. I have never met Shauna, but through her inspiring blog I got to know what a sweet, honest, and loving person she was. Being touched by a "stranger's" death has made me step back and think about some things. You really don't know who's lives you touch just by being you. The good you or the bad you. We all have a reason for being on this earth so why not make the best of it. You never know who are you inspiring to be better themselves. I am completely grateful for the people in my life and for them inspiring me to be a better person. The other thought I had goes out to our family members who are having physical trials right now. We can never know what they are truly going through, but we can definitely keep hopes high for them.

So my suggestion to you, no matter what faith you belong to, say a little prayer right now for those who are in your life that are struggling. I think they need all they can get!
