Finding my place!! A great post up about this community!
Over on A Girl And Her Gun is a great post titled "An Open Letter To The Anti-Gun Folks". She gets it!! She took what I feel and she put it all out there. I swear she and I are sister's of the soul sometimes because she so beautifully can write out thoughts and feelings I have had. I never really have fit into a group. I am too "wild" for a lot of LDS women, too young for a lot of Mommy groups (though that is finally changing now with Monkey's stuff but among the mom's of Bug's friends I am always the youngest), too conservative for most of the women my age. Not sure why I haven't found a place among writer's but that probably is due to my shyness. Even here sometimes I think "Do I belong here?" then I post about a worry or fear or struggle and where my words would be met with silence in the past they now are met with help, comfort, guidance, and understanding. Never have I known so many willing to lend an ear or a kind though to someone they have never met or offer to meet and help if they can until I entered this community. I can be a depressed basket case some days and when it feels like I am so very alone someone will post a comment that brightens my day. You guys are all amazing. The blog post by AGAHG is beyond description in its beauty. Read it.
