Five year anniversary on LJ

It's been five years since I wrote my first post.  A lot has happened.  It's been the best of times and the worst of times. 

I've had two delightful kids.  C and I have grown in our marriage.  I graduated with my MBA.  I started submitting my writing for publication, and I published my first piece.

In dealing with my son's disabilities I've grown to have a great appreciation and understanding of my own disabilities.

My life is not what one would call easy by Western standards.  But mostly I'm very thankful for what I've got.  My family is so sweet and loving.  We live comfortably.  We enjoy life.  We laugh a lot.  We bring each other joy.

I started out here not posting very much about my life.  As folks have responded and I've read more of other journals, I've posted more over time, and used my LJ as a sort of therapy and exploration and record of things I'm going through.

I've met some amazing folks through LJ and reconnected with others.  Thank you for reading and writing.  You've helped more than I can explain.

Happy Anniversary!
Thank you for all you've shared. I gain a lot of understanding about life through reading your journal. I also appreciate your thoughts when you read my journal.
