good morning.

i've always wanted to be a writer....
some kind of writer.
i literally have probably almost every piece i've ever written since about 7 years old or so....
but i also wanted to be a doctor.
well, chances are, i won't be a doctor.
too much school,
not much bedside time.
on call far too much.
i'd rather be a nurse than a doctor....
i think.
but i'd still love to write....
i became a fan of BlogHer on Facebook some time ago.
i love the blogs they share.
There are close to 6,000 followers on there.
I just realized YESTERDAY, after ALL this time, that i didn't have a BlogHer account....

so i made one.

I'm totally unfamiliar with the website and i am DEFINITELY no professional writer, so the whole thing is a bit intimidating for me.

I didn't have anything posted on there, and well, i couldn't just make an account and not post anything on there.... so i posted "flight line and teardrops" (an older post of mine that is probably one of the most powerful pieces to me.... i can re-read it and cry nearly every single time. my chest gets all tight. i can hear the sound of the jets. i can fell the rumble beneath me. it's like i live that day all over again every single time i read that post....)

so anyway. i post that to my account, so at least i have something up there. now, again, i'm not too familiar with how this whole thing works and maybe this is really no big deal, but i woke up this morning to find a link to my entry on BlogHer's Facebook page.
someone liked it enough to send it out for other people to read too?
a lady had commented on it and how her sons are serving in the military and are overseas right now, and she was appreciative for the post.
THAT warms my heart....
well it really warmed all of me.

(if you click on the BlogHer link that i posted, you might have to scroll down their page a bit to find the entry but yay! it's really there. )

maybe they post links to everyone's blogs. heck, i don't know. =)
whatever, just let me be excited that that post was sent out to almost 6000 people via BlogHer. =)

i don't brag about much (except about lucky i am to have snagged such a great husband, but that was a wonderful start to my Wednesday.... 'Wonderful wednesday' it shall be called. Good morning everyone. How was the start to your day? anything wonderful happen for you?

Nope, nothing wonderful here. Just waiting for someone that needs my dogsitting services, feeling used and under-appreciated. Someday, I'll learn to say NO!

Congrats on being recognized on BlogHer.
