Four years....

I realized yesterday that I missed my four year blogging anniversary! It seems strange that I've been doing this for four years....
It, of course, all started with Baby steps. I love what it's turned into.
And here is what I am asking.....
If you are a longtime reader, first time reader, a reader who never comments, a reader who reads and I don't know you read--basically, if you read or have ever read my blog, leave me a comment!!! Don't you think I deserve a "hello" on my blogging anniversary?? =)
Thanks, all!

*waves* Hi - I've been reading for a while but I don't think I've ever commented. Happy Blogiversary! I enjoy how you share your faith and write about other Mamas =) I'm glad I found you and am looking forward to more from you...

Missy K said...

Not sure if I've ever commented, or how I got here-- internet trails are sometimes hard to reconstruct, but I love reading your words.

Blessings!

Happy Blogiversary! I'm not a mother but hope that blessing comes soon. You are very inspiring and I hope I can one day be a mother with the same vision and stability!

I do comment occasionally, but I'll comment today to wish you a happy blog anniversary.

I need a favor, too. A long, long time ago you posted a cake recipe that was very healthy (and delicious, too, I might add). At the time I copied it to word and printed it, and baked it once. I was interested in pulling it out again to bake last Sunday, and horror of horrors, it was missing. I can't find it ANYWHERE!

Can you email it to me if you still have it?

Hey Roomy- Happy Blogiversary :) I've been here since babysteps and you have continued to spur me on, encourage me, inspire me through your words. You have taught me so much as to what it means to flourish as a mother and as one of the Lord's children. I love you, mama!!

Hello there! I started reading your blog when I did a Google search for "introvert" and a blog entry you wrote last year came up. I identified so much with what you wrote that I have been a reader ever since. Congratulations on 4 years!

Long ago, we met on the blogosphere. I wish I'd stuck it out - like you. Even though I'm not a blogger these days, I still enjoy popping in now and then. Thanks for keeping this little window to your life open.

Andrea,
I've been reading for 2.5 years...been taking care of many babies and little ones during that time...I love reading about being a daughter of the King, seeing beauty and especially about loving my husband and being a mother.
hugs, Mary Brooke

Happy Anniversary Andrea!

I was introduced to your blog by my sister. Although I'm not a mama myself nor married, I've really enjoyed my time on your blog.

I like your desire for simplicity and treasuring things that should matter.

thanks for taking the time to share with us what's on your heart as well as hosting Mama Mondays. -m (started reading when I was living on an isolated reserve in Northern Ontario, Canada and am now reading from beautiful British Columbia!)

Stacy said...

I see that I'm a little belated, but YAY about the 4-year blogging anniversary! Woo hoo! :)

Pim & Lucia said...

Dear Andrea,

I have been following your blog for a while. I really appreciate reading it. Thank you very much for sharing!
I started reading it when I was living in the US for a while, I then moved to Norway for 2+ years and I have now returned to my home country, The Netherlands.
It has often been an encouragement to read your entries. I also follow blogs by other christian moms in the US. I wish such encouragement would exist in my own country/language, but I haven't come across many blogging christian moms here. Many blessings to your family!
Lucia

Four years is a long time to write a blog. I'm only on my second. Hope to see many more from you. Congratulations on the first four!

Hello...I first came to your blog on June 2, 2008 to read your entry on speaking kindly. Today I returned to read this post and thought I would read the more recent entries as well. Thank you for that first post on kind words and the wisdom that has followed. I am a grateful reader! Happy Anniversary!

Jaime G said...

Wow! I read your blog regularly a couple of years ago, then I somehow lost track of the blogosphere...kids and all...you know ;o) Today I'm perusing the web and stumble upon you once again, and the blog looks so different than I remember! The new look is beautiful!
Congrats on four years!

I pop in from time to time... there is something so beautiful and true about your space.
I'm guessing the first visit was noticing a comment on tonia's blog , who I came to know through Ann V.

anyway, I couldn't leave without saying congratulations to you,

and all the weeks of days of trying to come
