This post is dedicated to my followers of all ages! I love sharing my life with you all and I appreciate the constant love and support that I continue to receive. These sweet (and silly) girls in the pictures above inspired me to write this post. All the way from Charleston, they love Midwest Charm with Anna. How sweet is that?! Great family friends, they ask about the blog often and I love telling them about it. There’s so much to be said about trying to see this life through the eyes of a small child. They have such a joyful spirit and their energy is contagious. The girls made me these signs which I now keep on my desk at home as a reminder to do whatever I do with all of my heart! You never know whose life you are impacting and like I’ve said before, if I can impact just one person through sharing my story then I deem it a success.
I find it incredibly rewarding to know that you’ve touched someone else’s life. Whether your impact be mammoth or microscopic is, in most cases, not important. In my opinion, the sole fact that you’ve made a difference is meaningful. As most of you know, I started this blog as an outlet, as a hobby, as a way to allow myself to write and share all of the thoughts I usually keep stored away. As my blog continues to grow and transform, I am learning that it has reached more people than I could have ever hoped and I am so grateful. You all inspire me each and every day with your interest, your comments and your genuine curiosity.
For reference: this weekend I attended the wedding of one of my very best childhood friends who married the man of her dreams. Such a crazy sense of emotion to see a friend that I used to bounce on the trampoline with go from shorts and a t-shirt to a wedding dress! On this beautiful bride’s special day she had the kindness to go out of her way to squeeze my hand and tell me how much she has enjoyed reading my blog. With her other hand over her heart her authenticity was unmistakable. I teared up at the thought of knowing someone so near and dear to me is pulling for me through the chaos of this crazy life.
Whether you’re an old friend, a new friend, a young friend or a perfect stranger, I find it so special that you have taken time to invest in my writing and my story through this blog. The feedback I get most often is that my posts are inspiring and I hope you know that I am thinking the same thing right back. Your kindness is inspiring! Wholeheartedly I would like to say thank you! I hope that you can continue to find something that interests you here on www.MidwestCharmwithAnna.com!
