Dear Followers & Readers of MM!

Thank you so much for taking the time to follow, read, look at my pictures, subscribe, comment, send me an email message, share my blog with your friends & family, like my photos & posts on Facebook, like my posts on Bloglovin', comment on Facebook, pin my photos on Pinterest, follow me on Twitter (although I don't tweet much), try my recipes & then come back on this space to give me your feedback, compliment me (I really appreciate all the kind words on my recent hair cut post; thanks everybody!), and...and compliment & support my efforts!!!

I am super, super grateful for you being here & interacting with me!

I think with blogs, we often look for the number. If you're a blogger, you know that number...how many followers do I have now? You ask yourself the question...and it's tricky, especially if you aren't blogging merely as a hobby, you sometimes need to know the number & that's okay; but what ever that number is, it somehow doesn't feel like enough.
I don't like the feeling at all.
It's like, well...how many IS enough???

This morning I looked at my number, and a message came to me: that 1 person, outside of my family & besides myself, who reads my blog, is 1 person who doesn't have to care! They don't have to give a crap about MerelyMarie; yet, they do!

That deserves nothing but gratitude & I just want to say that I am truly grateful.

I mean, I'm not posting any "life saving" information...no cures for cancer, or the common cold! If I knew it, I probably would post it, but I don't. This is merely my life. As someone who has always been a "quiet-person", this is me sharing my "voice", what I love, what I've learned & becoming the absolute best version of myself...and sharing these things in the hope that it will inspire/relate to/entertain/move somebody else in some small way...or in the biggest way, it will somehow motivate someone else in becoming the best version of their self.

With so many "personal" blogs out there, I know that you could easily follow/subscribe/comment on any one of them, still, you take time out of your day to stop by MerelyMarie...
...eyes are welling up now...big knot forming in my throat...& I thought I heard a violin playing in the background over that last paragraph...I better end this before...tears...
drats! 

Seriously.
For your interest, enthusiasm, support & love, thank you!!!

hugs & love,
Marie
