Why I Blog
Every single day there are tiny little miracles unfolding all around us. I didn't always know this. I wasn't always attuned to it. I was sleepwalking. And then I went through a sort of crisis around the age of 40 or so, and thanks to a lot of prayer and the benevolence and grace of God, I woke up. Not all at once, but gradually, over time. It was like a veil being slowly lifted from my eyes, and ever since then I have seen it and it has changed me. I am not the same person I was before. I see things in a different way, and I most definitely think about things in a different way, and I am so grateful. I was not a happy person before.
Sometimes I ask myself why I blog. What is the point? It is one drop in a thousand oceans, one voice in a vast multitude, and sometimes I feel a bit lost and overwhelmed in the crowd. But today I think I realized why I blog. It's because I am so very grateful for what I can now see, and I want others to see it too.
