Being kind is really so simple!
In a week where I seriously debated ending this blog...
there were such sweet offerings of friendship and love.
Of course these dear ones had no idea I had considered
taking Rabbit Run Cottage down for good.
Time to write and photograph a blog properly is
limited these days and I don't get to visit visit all of you
as I would like. When I do make my way around the blog world
I don't always leave a comment and for that I apologize.
So many of you have come to mean so much to me. Most of you
are supporting and loving and I have been blessed to spend
time with many of you...becoming real friends. True friends.
Sadly I have also seen the demise of what I thought were loving
friendships and that is always upsetting to me. I considered
ending Rabbit Run Cottage for many reasons not the
least of which was the absence of these friendships
in the blogging world as well as the world outside.
I must not have much to offer as a blogger I deduced or these
people would not have found it so easy to turn away.
It is true that I am not one to constantly change my decor
or blog about a design project and yes. This seems to be
what the blogging world centers on these days.
But then I received those kind words and encouraging
emails from dear ones and I realized why I blog.
I blog for me, for my close friends and family, for the friends who
I have met through blogging that hang in there with me loving,
gently supporting and making me feel silly for ever questioning
my presence in the blog world.
One may never know how their kind word, that smile freely given,
the words of encouragement offered may mean to someone but
never let that stop you from sending that love out into the world.
Be a blessings...be a good friend...take time to care.
I will keep Rabbit Run Cottage online because I enjoy this
sweet spot in cyberspace. Through it I have met some
wonderful people who have been so kind and I hope to meet
even more in the future.
I won't be the most popular blog on the block no, but that's
just fine with me. As long as I can offer my heart, my photography,
and my writing and have one person who smiles because of it, well,
I am successful!
My love to you all and a special hug to those of you
who are one of my blessings.
