Have you ever stopped to think about how much power your words have? I love this quote by Maya Angelou –
“People may forget what you said…but people will never forget how you made them feel.”
I’ve always tried to think about what I say to people as to not hurt their feelings. Sometimes I’ve succeeded but other times I have failed miserably. I hadn’t thought about the impact of the written word until starting this blog. Once you put something in writing for the whole world to see every comma, phrase and saying is now up for interpretation and could be taken a hundred different ways… It is always our intention for you to smile, laugh, learn something, be moved or on some level inspired after reading our blog.
Today marks the 10,000th View of the blog and this will be our 133rd Post. Our little blog has been viewed in 26 countries around the world including Ireland, Korea, Italy, Kenya and Singapore. And our ‘little’ family has grown to 113 followers. This is amazing to us and very humbling. We want you all to know how much we appreciate the support, the advice, the encouragement and we cherish the friendships and above all the LOVE we feel from you on a daily basis. This little blog started as a way to keep in touch with friends and family near and far while we travel. It has turned into much much more for me. I never expected to fall in love with the blog like I have. Corresponding with you is one of the greatest joys of my life. I’m constantly thinking about what to write to you next, which pictures would you like, what stories you’d want to hear. I always envision us chatting over coffee, the very best of friends.
So Thank YOU!! Thank you for coming along with us on this journey, for welcoming us into your lives and allowing us to share our world with you.
We love ya!!
Chris and Kristy
