Sometimes I really have to work hard not to totally spill my guts to the internet. As honest as I tend to be here and as much as I say that I really shouldn’t, there are some things that are just not meant to be shared. The really funny part is that if you met me in person, I would most likely not say more than "Um, hi." But, if I can type it and share it with the whole world over the internet, I’m practically an open book. I never would have thought that little shy me could talk so openly about my life with perfect strangers. Of course, you really aren’t strangers because I read most of your blogs too, so I guess I kinda know you in a weird stalker sort of way.
So, I have about a gazillion things running through my head right now but I can’t share all of them. Actually, I may not share much at all because in the time it took me to write that last paragraph I have forgotten the other things I wanted to write about.
While I try to remember the point of this post I will lead you elsewhere. Just remember to come back when you are done. During my morning blog readings I ran across a couple of things that made me very, very sad. Ok, so I cried. At work. The first one is here. That is what started me with the whole crying thing. After I finished wiping away the tears, I went here and saw what Amanda is doing and again, I was touched. I don’t have the extra funds today, but when I do I plan to go back and send in my donation. If you have an extra buck or two, I would encourage you to do the same.
It really does amaze me just how much you can care about someone you have never met in real life. When you read about someone’s struggles, hopes, fears, and even the mundane day-to-day happenings of their life, you get to know them. You start to care about them. They become your friends. This phenomenon still amazes me.
And now, I must rush away because I just got an e-mail telling me my baby is sick and running a fever. Hopefully I’ll come back and remember what I was planning on writing earlier because this totally drifted away from it.
