Eight Years of Miracles

On a day like today, eight years ago, I sat at the science library at the University of Florida, probably in corduroy flare pants and my glasses on, and I decided to start Expect Miracles.

I wanted to write. I needed to write. My heart was full again, after years of dry ink. An important relationship in my life had unraveled, and a new chapter was beginning. I could feel it in my bones.

My first post, Autumn, hinted at my readiness for a rebirth. (I have left my previous posts intact, complete with typos and formatting issues. I would rather display growth than perfection). I had no idea I would end up here. Life takes us on these amazing rides when we live by faith.

Today is the blog’s birthday. Thank you for the years of support; for reading my thoughts and for watching me grow.

I am forever grateful for how faithfully you read and for your feedback and love.

Here is to more growth! More change! More love! And more words! Around here, we like to live life deeply, thoughtfully and filled with miracles. Thank you for walking with me.
