WOW… where does the time ago. One year ago after a couple of weeks of sulking after quitting my job (read that post here), I decided to start this blog. It was a way for me to vent, to explore, to remember who Sharon really was. My goal was to share what our life with autism is like and to bring awareness to my family, to my friends and to anyone else who happened who accidentally landed on my domain. And somewhere down the line, it happened.
I cannot pin point the exact time it happened, but non the less it happened. The words, the feelings, the passion that for so long I had buried way down deep inside started to come out. Some days my fingers could not type quick enough to keep up with them. With every push of the send button I felt lifted. My soul had once again come alive… I had found Sharon again. I found my passion.
I love writing… I always had and I believe I always will. To be able to connect to you , my reader… to make you laugh, to make you cry, to shake your head in agreement or disagreement… I don’t think it gets any better than that. I am so grateful to you all for reading, for sharing your lives with me. You lift me up on my down days and make my good days even more sweeter! To know I am not alone, well… I don’t think I can ever figure out a way to thank you all for that gift! But I can try to…
I want to do something special to celebrate this special day. Since presents seem to make everything a little more exciting… I want to give one of you one. So here is what I thought I would do.
I have a $25 Target gift card that I would like to give to one of my followers. In order to be eligible to win it all you have to do is leave a comment on this blog post. Wish me a happy Blog-A Versary, share a favorite blog moment, Facebook story or just say I want to win… it doesn’t matter. You don’t have to join my Facebook page or re-tweet this on twitter (Although I wouldn’t stop you from doing either HA HA HA). Just leave a comment here. I will keep this contest open until Monday, March 5th, 2012 Midnight EST and on Tuesday the 6th, I will use random.org and pick a winner from the comments left. See how simple! I will announce the winner via this blog and on my Facebook page and will then contact the winner via email to get your mailing address to send the Target card to you.
One card and one winner but a 1,000 thank yous to you all! I say all the time on my Facebook page that I don’t know what I would do without my village… I mean that too!
