Tomorrow will be one year since I pushed launch on this blog. I won’t have an opportunity to write this tomorrow. This post is a thank you to all the people who have helped make this blog possible. I hope you all will indulge me in these thank you’s and know I mean them from the bottom of my heart. The first goes to God: thank you for my life and my gifts. I hope my life is everything you’d want it to be. Even when I doubt, you show up. Thank you for loving me through everything, but most certainly when I mess up.
Thank you to my parents who believe in me when I don’t believe in myself. I love you both dearly. Thank you for everything. A special shoutout to my dad without whose push this blog wouldn’t exist. He believes that my story matters, will help others, and I can make a good life for myself by telling it. Thank you, Dad. I’m proud to be your daughter and share your name.
The next thank you is to my brother/journey partner. You told me to write a book about my life. I decided to turn the book into this blog. You told me it would help people. I was scared, but I pushed launch anyway knowing you would have my back. Thank you for having my back every day since we were truly kids. Together the impossible is possible. I hope this blog makes you proud. It’s my pleasure and honor to be your sister by choice. I’m so proud of you too. To the rest of my chosen family: thank you all for the constant love and support everyday. Thriving wouldn’t be possible without each of you. I love being your sister by choice. It’s truly my pleasure. I love you all.
Lastly, thank YOU to ALL of you who read this blog and follow my journey. I’m so thankful to each of you. Together we are building the community I envisioned. Thank you for sharing posts and getting the word out about this blog. I’m so grateful to all of you. We’re only just getting started, y’all. I promise every one of you we’re just getting started.
