Remember THIS post?
I’ve gotten a lot of emails about it, which is awesome, but the one I got last night had me in tears (my mom+dad too when i read it to them!)…
I’ve been reading your blog since the Jodified days, and just wanted to tell you thank you for sharing so much of yourself. Your pictures are absolutely FANTASTIC, but you’re personality way outshines the photographs you take. Most bloggers tend to share only the happy stories about how they just made cookies with their kids or sharing pictures of their latest fun outing. You were one of the first blogs I read who actually got REAL and reassured me that being a mom is definitely hard sometimes. And being a young mom of 2, this has been so helpful.
But anyways, just wanted to pass along a story that happened to me yesterday. I was trying to make it to our local farmer’s market that closed in 10 minutes, when I saw an SUV in a turning lane with a guy standing behind it. “Oh that’s a bummer,” I thought. It looked like his car had broke down. “Gee, I’d pull over and help, except what’s a 5’4” 140 lb girl in flip flops going to be able to do? Besides, I’ve got my little guy in the back seat and I’m running late. I’m sure he’s got it handled.”
That’s when your blog post last week popped into my head and I knew I couldn’t NOT at least try to help. I quickly pulled into a parking lot, left my van running with my little guy inside and ran out into the busy intersection to help. Long story short, I became the “driver” to steer the vehicle uphill into a parking lot. I helped the guy out and went on my way.
So just wanted to thank you for passing along your awesomeness! Aren’t blogs amazing???
Have a wonderful weekend
