My two best friends tell me they enjoy my devotional writings and they continue to encourage me to keep writing them. I hope she doesn’t mind that I’m sharing this, but I love this comment from one of my friends on a blog post from 2010. “Hahaha! I love it! I was following along, all whimsical-like, then that 'Focus.' just stopped me in my tracks. Wonderful words, beautiful message.” I also have a teenage “fan.” She is a fellow writer and was one of the handful of people who got to read the short story I wrote for the IWSG anthology contest. She has since approached me multiple times to say how much she liked it and ask how my current writing is going. It is both an encouragement and an accountability for my writing and I appreciate her enthusiasm. You know, it is hard to feel insecure about my writing this month after thinking about this question. A kind word of encouragement really does go a long way! It makes me think of a song Bing Crosby sings in White Christmas, which states, “If you’re worried and you can’t sleep, just count your blessings instead of sheep, and you’ll go to sleep counting your blessings.” Just think of positive reviews and feedback as the blessings :)
On a side note, I want to thank those who wished me a Happy Birthday on my Monday post! The last few days of Independence Day and birthday celebrations have been great and I hope to make some belated return visits soon, as things are getting back to normal.
