Let's Make Them Smile


I have some of the most amazing blogger friends in the world, some of whom I don't know what they look like, maybe don't know their real name, and don't know where they live. But there's something that connects us. We're friends. We have smiles, laughs, and beautiful words that we share together on our blogs. It's a kind of bond that's different from anything else.

I think sometimes we don't appreciate these awesome people enough. There's so many there for me... I can't even mention them all. Everyone always surprises me with their kindnesses. And I just wanna say... you're all amazing. You're all the most amazing people in the world. God's used you in such amazing ways in my life. I love being here with you. I love talking to you. I love reading your words and replying. It's just something that I love so much.

This month, this November, I've heard people talking about counting one thing that they're thankful for every day. That's a lovely thing. But what if, along with that, we made a sort of resolution.

Up until Thanksgiving, let's comment on every blog post that shows up on dashboards. (Unless it's like offensive or something to you in some way.) Let's show those people who have been so amazing to us just how amazing they are.

I think that sometimes we get caught up and just treat one person that they're the most amazing person ever, you know? It's really hard being on the other end of that, I know from personal experience. It just makes me think, "Oh, great, so I guess I'm chopped liver." And the truth is... everyone is amazing in their own special way. We don't have to feel bad. Blogging isn't about getting followers, getting comments... it's about sharing and making friends and being the person that God calls you to be. Some people who have like 5 or 10 followers have the most amazing words. Just because you don't get comments doesn't mean you're not read or that you don't have good things to say. You're all special. You're all amazing.

So, this month, let's spread the love. Hashtag #letsmakethemsmile in a comment below if you're with me.

Let's make them smile. :)

Be a hero,
Anna

P.S. You all make me smile.

  7. Whew! It's takin' a long time to post comments on every post that comes up, but it's worth it to make people smile, even if I can't see it. It's fun to surprise people when they don't think they're going to get any comments:)

  9. Yes. And you said that all so beautifully Anna. I've been thinking along those lines, the past few days, especially, I'm so grateful for blogger friends. :) I do try to comment on every post that comes in my inbox, but I'll try harder this month (though with school this kind of thing is hard) because I think you have a special and very lovely idea. <3
