- You! You all are beautiful for what you made of the Interview Project. In the beginning, I told myself that if we managed ten pairs-- just twenty bloggers--I'd consider it a success. I even had a mental list of people I'd beg to participate if I had to. Instead we had over thirty pairs! To everyone who participated in an interview, shared the project on their blog, posted a link in a forum, or visited the participants' sites--thank you, thank you, thank you. You blew me away with your enthusiasm and insightfulness. I hope you all made some lovely new connections.
I've got some ideas for the future, and I'd love to hear yours, too. If you have any feedback on the project, definitely let me know.
- More sincere thanks to every single person who reached out after the hey-my-life-just-imploded post. Each comment and email was like a little hug. My life is still wackadoodle, and it will be for the near future, at least. I haven't yet found the new normal; I'm sorry I haven't been around as much. But the family is physically healthy, God is near and the cherry trees are blossoming. No small things, those.
- Did I mention the cherry blossoms? We had a string of beautiful spring days earlier this week and I took some long walks around our neighborhood. Passing close by some of the snowy white and pink trees, I felt like all the things that have been weighing on me this month were a bit lighter. There is something about their fleeting loveliness each year--they come and go in a week or two--that makes me feel like there is always the possibility of renewal if only you wait and watch.
