Thankful Tuesday!

Hello everyone! I hope everyone has had a great Tuesday. I just wanted to take a minute to express my appreciation and thanks for all the wonderful friends and followers who take the time to read and comment on my posts. When I started this blog, I really wasn't sure how it was going to work out. I wondered if anyone would bother to read it, much less take the time to post such sweet, supportive comments. I get so overwhelmed sometimes just reading the comments you guys leave for me.

I have never had much self confidence. When I was in school (many moons ago!), I was the wallflower. I was very shy and insecure. I preferred to stand by and watch life instead of jumping in and living it. Although I had plenty of friends and made good grades, I always felt like a failure. I guess I've carried some of that feeling with me throughout my life.

I have made some improvement in this area but there is still a lot of work to be done! As Joyce Meyer would say, "I'm not where I want to be, but thank God I'm not where I used to be!"

So, I just felt the need to let everyone know that a simple, kind word left on a blog post can really make someone's day. I know y'all have made me smile on days that I felt more like crying. Thank you for your friendships. I treasure each one of you!

Until next time. . .

  4. Oh, Donna, as a child in grade & high school I was always very shy, stand backish, inward ... very insecure. I now where you are coming from ... now I am out in the front of everything, but inwardly I still think about the inward me ...

  6. Donna, I'm still a shy person..but not quite as shy as I was in school.. I was very insecure and had no self confidence whatsoever.. It does take time for one to get over that's for sure!

  8. Donna~ What a great post and so true. None of us really realize the impact that a simple word of encouragement or support will have on the person it is intended for. You have brightened my day many time by your nice comments on my blog and the CS forum. You are a talented lady! Never doubt that! ~Dan~

  9. Girl, you are so sweet! I love and appreciate all the friendships I have made in blogland this past year. I feel so blessed and I thank God often for my blog friends. Thank you for being a follower of my blog and always leaving sweet comments!!

  11. Donna, you have a lovely blog and you're a lovely person. I'm so happy to be following you and you've given me some inspiration as a new blogger myself. Have a wonderful week! ~ Tracey

  12. It looks like the "wallflower" has blossomed. Your blog message today is so true. Kind words are a simple thing to give and they leave a wealth of good. I often read the comment of others on blogs and have to say that most people in blogland are caring supportive people. I, too, enjoy your blog.


  13. I couldn't agree more, Donna, and I know just how you feel. So thanks for commenting on my blog and rest assured I love visiting you!
    Best wishes

  14. Oh my gosh! You took the words right out of my mouth! I have felt the exact same way and especially with regards to my blog. I don't really make crafts...I write a mean check though! I just thought no one wants to read what I have to say and what do I want to say?
    Joyce Meyers is an excellent read! I have many of her books and she is such an inspiration. Keep up the bloggin', I love to read what you have going on!

  15. I've been following your blog for awhile and I wanted to say that I just love your blog. You are such an inspiration. Thank you for being who you are.


  16. Donna, your Blog is so lovely and your today's post is so sweet and true!

    I'm still a shy person.. (...I have not yet had the courage to post on my Blog something about me, but I'm sure one day I will find the courage... LOL! LOL! LOL!)


  17. I absolutely agree...I have even thought about shutting down my blog due to lack of comments. Just like getting comments makes your day, I feel that not getting them bums me out a little. BTW, thanks for stopping by and leaving a comment. And I too, became a follower of yours!!

    Hugs!! Carrie♥

    I'm very new to blogging and would like to invite you to come visit me sometime. I will become a follower and add you to my list of blogs if you would care to do the same perhaps.
