100th Post, Thanks, and Updates


After nearly a year of blogging, I've made it to 100 posts! My husband suggested that to mark the occasion I should give away a Swiffer, since I love mine so much. :o)

Since I didn't think of anything cute or creative to do, I thought I'd use this post as an opportunity to say "Thanks" to all of you. My previous post was a difficult one to write and you guys were incredibly supportive, as always. I really don't know how to properly thank you for all of the comments, e-mails, and prayers. Please know that I appreciate every one of you so much! Your words of understanding, encouragement, and support were amazing. I've gone back to read them again and again.

I have been doing pretty well over the past few days. We enjoyed a nice Easter weekend at our house with my husband's sister. My husband's brother and his wife welcomed their baby boy on Good Friday, so we have a brand new nephew! We haven't met him yet, but hope to in the next few months (they live in another state). We will be very busy over the next couple of weeks with visits from my sister and from Chuck's parents, as well as another trip to Louisiana before the month is over. Busy is definitely good for me right now.

One thing I've learned is that the best thing about this blog is the community of readers and other bloggers. I love getting to know you through your blogs and comments. So if you're reading this, be sure and let me know! If you've never commented before, now's your chance! Leave me a comment. I'd love to meet you.

Happy 100th post! I'm not sure what number I'm at....but since I just started back in Jan 09...I've got a way to go. I'm glad to hear you are feeling better. I think keeping busy (but not stressed out busy) is healthy and keeps me in a better mood too! When I'm home, I do a lot of little things around the house and I read or study. I really haven't felt bored in a long time. That is great that you are visiting family too. I'm sure they love the visits as much as you do. I also want to thank you for the prayers you have given me and the support. I truly feel this is a place where I can let some of those "inner" feelings of IF out. Since I've been blogging...I feel less of that darkness. Since I've been blogging...I've been praying the rosary more too. I'm looking forward to another 100 posts Stacey! God Bless you and your DH.

Happy 100! I agree, the community is wonderful. I am a newby to the blog community world, but already I feel it has changed me, opened me up. I aspire to reach 100 as well!

Yay!!!!!!!!!!!

Woohoooooooooooooooooooo!!!!!

Congratulations on reaching 100!!!!

Blog posts that is ;-)

When it seems no one in the "real world" gets me, I always know I can log onto my blog type out sentences that seeminly make NO sense and I know SOMEONE will get it, understand it and relate to it and make me feel a little less alone in this journey!

Isn't it great?

Yeah to your 100th post! I am so glad you are in better spirits. I know a few months when I was in complete darkness, the words and prayers of the other bloggers brought me so much hope. Glad we could do the same for you! Big blessings going out your way with lots of prayers too!

We are begging God that the next 100 posts include prenatal appts and swollen ankles! Thank-you for your continual support and prayers as well. I've often wondered if I am struggling with some sort of depression, so you are not alone...

I have been following you for some time! Congrats on 100 posts! I just set up a blog this morning and am eager to see where it takes me! Have a great day!

beth ewing said...

happy 100th! i didn't comment on the last post but i know those feelings all too well. i had a month on clomid where i was exactly where you are. when i finally realized i might be depressed, i went off the meds and came back to normal. there is nothing wrong with admitting that something might be off. i'll pray God continues to heal you.

Connie said...

Yay! Happy 100th post, Stace. What a tremendous blessing this blog has been to so many (as well as to you)! You are such an amazing writer! Remember when I wrote that "book" when I was in junior high? Remember who I dedicated it to? All I ask is that you return the favor when you write your best seller! :) I love you!! XOXOXO

It seems like just yesterday you were kicking around the idea of a blog. I knew that you would do a fabulous job, but I had no idea that God would turn it into such a ministry. I am so thankful how God has blessed you with many great blogging friends to encourage you. And I know that you have done the same for them.

Yay for 100!!! That is a lot of thought, time, stories, tears, laughs, pictures, recipes...you've shared so much of yourself with us. Thank you for doing that, Stacey, and for being so welcoming to this big group of people who, although slightly "broken" at times, just love to make new friends. We love you!

Becky said...

Congratulations on your 100th post! I just spent some time catching up with your first postings, I can't believe I had not done that until now. It made me want to go back and read every one of your posts up until the point when I found your blog. I am definitely looking forward to the next 100.

Praying for you!

Abby said...

Wow, 100 posts! I don't think I'll ever make it to that point. Stacey, your blog is fantastic!!! Whether you make us cry or make us laugh, I love it. You bring hope to all of us. I appreciate the honesty in your posts. I really like that you keep it real and express what many of us would like to, but can't find the words. Your blog is a great accomplishment and you are a true inspiration to us all. You will be rewarded, I know it!

Many Hugs!!! Abby
