First, I want to say thank you again to everyone who has entered the Give-A-Way. I truly thought maybe 20 people would enter and after the 3rd day with only entry, I thought, well this is going to be easy, but on day 6, here I sit with hundreds of entries.
I think it is remarkable how many of you are taking a proactive steps in defense of your life and freedoms. You rock!!!
Second, I really want to apologize. This blog thing is kicking my butt. I had no idea how many emails I would get from so many of you.
I love it.
I love not getting an ounce of sleep because there is something about me, that has compelled you to want to share part of your life’s story with me. I promise you I am reading them all and I care very much. I am humbled and blessed by each of you. I am trying to respond and to visit everyone’s blogs, but sometime I read one and think I will get to it, but then more pour in and I don’t back to it. I need a better system.
Let me tell you that it never, ever, not once occurred to me that anyone would read this blog. I was woefully unprepared for the way it has exploded over the past few months. I am trying to balance my real life with my virtual life. I have made real friends through this blog. People I have connected with and who have impacted my life on a deeper more personal level and it is important to me that I nurture those relationships. I want to give back by commenting on their blogs, sending emails, and just being there for them. I also have a ton of kids and a hubby who need me plus I am still trying to learn all things guns. So, if I have not gotten back to you please know that it is an oversight. I can not guarantee I will get back to you, but I am trying. I appreciate your comments on this blog and through email. Really, I do.
Thirdly, to all you bloggers out there…sorry again. I am realizing(I kind of suspected) I don’t know what the heck I am doing. If I have forgot to credit you or ask your permission or broke a rule, I really didn’t mean to. Thank God for North sending me emails from time to time to tell me how jacked up I am and telling me how to fix it, or this could have been even uglier.
Basically, what I am trying to say is that I am all kinds of whacked, but I am having a blast and trying extremely hard.
That is all. Carry on.
