I reflect back on when Jorjia and I talked about creating Conquer With Hope. Life was certainly different then!
It was funny, Jorjia and I both felt led to write a blog, and we were kind of nervous about approaching each other, because unbeknownst to us – we both felt led to write one and we both felt we were supposed to do this together! Neither of us wanted to put pressure on the other, and so we kind of tiptoed into talking about. We were relieved when we learned that this was on both of our hearts!
God’s hand has been on this since the beginning, we certainly see evidence of that! One thing that really touches me, is that even though we have pretty much deserted the blog for a year, the legacy that this blog has begun continues to grow and expand. Conquer With Hope continues to add new followers – all on its own!
I have several blogs begun, and in fact have one that I was preparing to post when I realized the date and decided that I wanted to shout out HAPPY BIRTHDAY CONQUER WITH HOPE!!! before getting back into posting anything else.
I am so thankful for this blog, for our loyal and amazing followers, for the connection that we have, for the incredible way that God has and continues to use this blog and for all that I have learned and experienced since the conception September 3rd four years ago!
I have laughed and cried reading and writing these blogs. I have been impressed with my daughter’s writing ability and skills and have surprised myself at what I have been able to do. I have felt supported and loved by people that I know and some that I don’t even know, through comments and shares and follows.
My relationship with my daughter has continued to grow and heal as we have connected emotionally through writing, editing, and communicating.
I have to say, as I look back over these four years, that while I wish that I had been blogging more consistently – I am still proud of what we have accomplished, and I am excited to see what things look like four years from now.
There will be blogs updating everyone on life with an empty nest, my mom’s Alzheimer’s Adventure, learning online, stepping out in faith, my YouTube channel, dealing with loss, gratitude, and positive energy and so much more! I can’t wait to hear back from you, as we get the ink rolling!
So, HAPPY BIRTHDAY CONQUER WITH HOPE!! And thank you for allowing us back into your life!
Thank you so much for reading, liking, following, and sharing. You are important to us, and we appreciate you!
