We had to take down all our posts for a while. We did not realize that to put them back up would repost them in everyone's feeds. We apologize for that. We also will do our best, as life allows, to get the rest of the posts up as soon as possible. :)

Loving Our Lurkers

HAPPY LOVING OUR LURKERS DAY! :)


I wanted to say hi to any lurkers I have out there. 

HI! :)  *imagine me waving my hand at you, inviting you for a cup of your favourite drink and a nice little sit down talk* ;)

From time to time, you guys introduce yourself, and I am always very honoured when you do.  The fact that anyone would read my words really tugs at my heart, and I want to say thank you.

For anyone wishing to comment, please feel free, I always love to hear from you.  Or if you have questions.  I also love email, esmayslife @ gmail.com (without the spaces).  I know how scary it can be to make contact, so don't feel you have to, but if you want to, I'm here. :)  I know my first time commenting my heart stuck in my chest, I was so terrified.  But I am so glad I did.  I have made so many wonderful friends, some that we comment back and forth with on each others blogs, and some whom I email more than comment with.  But the support I have found here in blogland is so overwhelming.  If you ever feel you want that, this part of blogland is such a safe place to do it.  My blog, or any of the others.

And if you don't feel like commenting, I still want to say thank you for reading along.  If I can help you at all in finding out things about this lifestyle that has been such a blessing to me, my husband, and our marriage, than I am deeply humbled and honoured.  I make a lot of mistakes, I don't always know the right thing to think or feel, but if in all that choas, it still touches you, I'm so thankful.  Thank you for reading along, and I hope you have an absolutely wonderful day. :)

  11. EsMay,
    I was a tried and true lurker here not so long ago. I identified with you pretty quickly, and then started reading who you were reading. But you were always my 'go to' blog. Then one day I felt compelled to reach out and email you, and I was so nervous that I had stepped over some imaginary line - but you responded so kindly, and a friendship was born.
    I am ever so thankful for your love and support - even helping me to 'talk' to my husband, and then to start my own blog.
    I hope that you get to meet more of your silent readers today - but even if not, I'm sure that they count you as a friend - you just have that way about you.
    Love and hugs,
    Cali

    1. Oh Cali, your words make me blush, thank you for so many kind words. I am very glad I met you, and so very glad you wrote me that day. :) No line was crossed, I promise, I am as human as anyone else out there, flaws and all. I will be ever thankful that you stepped out to meet me. :)

Please feel free to leave any comments, but I do ask you to be kind. We go into this with eyes wide open after months of prayer, and a peace in our hearts that this is the right choice before God for our marriage. I am open to questions from those who wonder why we made this choice, but I would ask for no personal attacks. Thank you. :)
