300

300 - that is a huge number - especially when it refers to blog posts.  Its hard for me to believe but this is somehow my 300th post - I was honestly surprised when I made it to 100, and lets be honest, by the time I was at 200 things were slowing down and I thought the blog was going to die a slow death.  Instead I got my blogging mojo back - thanks to Andrea's goal of a blog post every day in the month of February which inspired me to get to work.  And now here it is my 300th post.  It's taken almost 2 1/2 years to get here - but I love blogging now more than I did when I started.

I have connected with some great people through this blog who I never would have come across in real life and thanks the surprising number of real life friends and family members who also blog I am closer to them than I ever thought possible.  I love that through this habit of sitting down at the computer and sharing I know my cousins better, I know what my friends are doing in their jobs/lives, I know how their kids are growing, I get to share milestones in their lives, I'm able to share some of the places I visit - and in some ways I feel I have a group of free therapists who listen to the (sometimes) confused ramblings of my mind and are kind enough to write back and let me know I'm not alone.  I have a creative outlet and a reason (excuse) for spending countless hours listening to music to discover those songs that move me.

So, a big thanks to all of you who take the time to read my posts and, for those of you who comment, a double thanks, I never would have made it to 300 posts without your encouragement.

I thought I'd go back to where I started - with the song from my very first post.  A song, I'm glad to say still ranks up there with my all-time favorites - and still seems to apply to me and the way I live my life.

I LOVE your blog. It's for sure one of my very favorites. I am grateful you brought it back nd have breathed a new life into it. Keep it going!! P.S. You are the best commenter.
