A Little Bit of Awesome

September 1, 2010

Because we all need a little bit of mid-week awesome. Right?

And there’s one more thing, more awesome than numbered paper clips and pantone boxes and polka dotted pears.  Last week I posted about 17 year old blogger Rachel.  She desperately needed a few words of encouragement, and to those who went to visit her blog, thank you.  I have been checking up on her each day since she was Love Bombed and you would not believe the difference in her life in just one short week.  It gives me goosebumps to see how a few sentences from a relatively few people could be such an amazing force for good in her life.

”   What I wanted to say, was that your comments couldn’t have come at a better time. I’m ashamed to admit it but I planned on coming home and hurting myself, and well, I wasn’t too worried about the outcome.  When I signed onto my blog to find over 400 comments, I started to read them and was instantly overwhelmed by the love I felt from people I’d never met. It was the best feeling in the world, and as I sit here, a few hours later, it still brings tears to my eyes to think about.   ”

In less than one week she went from feeling that no one would notice if she never showed up for life again to this, which she posted yesterday:

”  …Maybe I’m me. And Maybe, for once, being JUST ME is OK.  “

I don’t even know her, but I think my heart has grown three sizes.  There is good in the world, and she has found it.  Those that left her words of encouragement and love showed her where it was.  Watching her find it, has reminded me that it is there.  Who knew, it’s been here on the internet all this time.  Awesome, right?

    I’m so glad that Rachel is doing better. You are awesome for keeping an eye out on her. I left her a comment and then moved along with my life. You really went the extra mile. Thanks for the link . . . going back to visit her.

    My favorite mid-week bit of awesome was the pretty pears fabric by Anne Kelle.

    So, I can’t see most of your pictures, and the format is all skewed and wonky, but I could read your message!

    It seems appropriate to read, beings that I’m surrounded by 17 year olds right now. (I wrote to her too)

    Bummer about the “tying” — I’ll email you back. 🙂
