Worth It

Photo from the first entry to this site back in April 2008. Me with my nephew, Carson, only six months here and my late doggie, Annie. A precious moment.

Keeping up a website like this is a very fun and rewarding outlet for me. But, it can also be a little uncomfortable at times. It is a weird thing not having any control over who reads what I share here. I realize I could password-protect this site, but at this time, it is not something I've chosen to do for a variety of reasons. I try to focus on all the positive things about this site and try not to be too paranoid. I try to be real, but careful. Funny, whenever I am having doubts I get feedback like this:

Courtney, I really enjoy reading Jahjong. I look at it at least twice a week. Somehow, reading your accomplishments and journey makes me feel like I’m part of your family, or at least, part of something. I felt really disconnected this holiday season and, in order to keep me grounded, I looked at your blog (that was my therapy). I cried at times because there was so much peace and love with your pictures and other times I smiled and laughed but, overall, it gave me a deep sense of connection…go figure.

I enjoy looking at your little girl’s pictures – she looks so sweet and gorgeous - and all the recipes – yummy! I even tried your Candy Cane Lane Green Tea – loved it…You look very beautiful too, motherhood seems to be natural for you. Thank you for sharing that gift (blog) with other people.

Wow. Thank you "R". As I told you, what you shared made my day and touched me deeply. I don't get many comments on my site and I never really know who reads what, so feedback like this... Well, it just means the world to me.
So, thanks to whoever is out there taking the time to take a look at what I'm sharing today.
