Wow. It is Friday. A few days ago I was thinking that Friday couldn't come soon enough for my comfort (and, shockingly, it had very little to do with needing a break from work) and how miserable I was about this week's LTGL theme, this bloody blogging.

But along the way this experience has morphed into something else. It has reminded me of why I came to SparkPeople to begin with.

I came here - not for information, advice or any of the more common reasons - but for the camaraderie and the fun, and to have someone to share this journey with. Visiting tons of blogs during these past seven days has given me so many glimpses into people's hearts and minds. It has shown me how immensely supportive this community is, and how much strength there is to gain from such support.

In short; it has been emoticon ! I am so happy to have found a group of people who see the best in each other, who are not afraid to be silly, serious, disappointed, sad, tired, happy, teasing, confused and a myriad of other things, in front of each other.

I think this is the most amazing thing I am taking away from this week of blogging.

Thank you for that.

    The camaraderie of our SparkFamily is just AWESOME and unlike anything out there on the 'net! It's so helpful to know that we can count on the support and constructive criticism of others here at SparkPeople.

Catching up with y0ur blogs and very impressed with your shares!

    It has been a great week - much better than I thought it would be. I too have enjoyed getting to know everyone better, although I still haven't enjoyed the blogging bits. We are all stronger because of it I'm sure!
