Five Hundred

This little group of words represents my 500th post.

That's a lot of words, especially since I can be known to use quite a few words at any given time.

The funny thing is that you could look at this as some sort of accomplishment or really just a massive collection of minutes of my life spent on something fairly insignificant. The ironic thing is that if it is an accomplishment, it isn't really because of the effect it's had on anyone else.

Don't get me wrong, if any words I've written have touched anyone or had an impact in their life than I am truly humbled by that. But as I look back at the last 2+ years of writing I realize that this blog, these words, have had the greatest impact on me.

I've also been blessed beyond measure with some great friendships through this little piece of internet real estate. It makes me laugh that I said to a friend recently, "You know I'm going to be travelling to two weddings this spring all because of my blog." Who says stuff like that? Me, I guess.

So post #500, you mark a lot of deep thinking, laughter, tears, friendships, self evaluation, spiritual growth, good conversation, two years of my life, and a suprisingly vulnerable picture of who I am.

Close friendships from a blog? Pshaw... I'm not buying it.

Two weddings? Whose? I only know of one.

Oh, wait. Memory lapse. Oops. Wheeeee! Two weddings!

(I think it's kind of weird that three times in a row now I've had to write the same word verification, but all from different blogs. Is that weird to anyone else? I actually kind of like it.)

Who are the bloglander lovebirds? That IS kind of cool.

Since I started blogging, two---count 'em, TWO---couples (I've known the girls personally here in town) have met and gotten engaged/married through their blogs. Pretty crazy.

Here's hopin'... :) Just kidding. Kind of.
