wow -- the internets is a marvelous thing. I'm really appreciative of all the support and encouraging comments all y'all have left on my swimming post. This is a big step for me, but one that I must take, and I really feel like I'm not doing it alone.
I'm beginning to really understand the mad props and internet love I see on all the Tri-Bloggers' sites when y'all meet each other IRL. The encouragement (both from folks that have been visiting for a while and those that just recently found my little old site from who-knows-where) is exactly what I need to conquer all the uncertainties I have when I stand at the edge of that pool. I can't begin to explain how that empowers me... but I think y'all know.
