This week was so special. I heard from people in Spain, a small village in southeast England, Hong Kong, the United States, and places I have never heard of like Istanbul. I would never have imagined that something so personal and painful could be used to help people see! (The Cruel Stare) It has been so fun to read the responses from people whose hearts have been changed because of our families painful day. I’ve heard from people, who like me, live in a body that challenges them daily, asking me to continue writing about my experiences. I am so honored by that.
I am very aware that it is not my writing that has opened peoples eyes. It is something God has done. I am cautious because I know it is hard for people to change their behaviors. I want it to happen today. I am eager for it to happen for all my friends around the world who live with great physical and emotional struggles.
I know people are not eager to change their behaviors. I wish I could make it easy for them. I wish they could see our hearts, and know that we would be the best of friends if we were given the chance. I hope you get to know one person who is lonely today. Your kindness could change their lives, and most of all yours.
This week we had 1499 people visit my blogpage. That is a number I never imagined. I know that my blog is being read by thousands and it has also been on a local radio station in our state. I am eager to see what takes place next.
I have been working with our filmaker Dan on my documentary. We are almost finished with the script for the introduction. It takes a long time to make a film, but I want it to be just right. It is not only my story, but millions of people who will not have the priviledge of having their own documentary. I am eager for my words to be accurate. I hope it will help my friends too.
