2008 was my first year blogging, and now that it’s over, I’m a little sentimental. I’ve read several blogs over the last few days that have offered top-10 lists and such of their best posts, and I’ve aspired to do something similar.
I’ve written exactly 100 entries to this blog in 2008, and I’ve just spent some time reviewing them, hoping to find 5 that I would suggest are the posts I’m most gratified to have written, i.e. “I’m glad I wrote this.”
Turns out, since they all became words after first being chunks of my flesh, I’m glad I’ve written all of them. So, I’ve enlisted Renee to help. Turns out, she doesn’t like some of the ones I really like and she’s warm and fuzzy about all the posts that are about our children. That’s not so helpful.
Now it’s late. We’re tired, and we have no inspiration for nostalgia about 2008. Who cares anyway!
But, since we’re here . . . some of my best writing was earlier in the year . . . and later in the year. Peruse at your leisure, but maybe check out these (more than 5, but particularly meaningful to me):
- everything’s going to be alright
- a quick bath
- my valentine
- an oasis of memories
- a secret
- watering and mowing
- evoke her beauty
- foolish trust
Thanks for reading!
P.S. If your favorite or most meaningful post is not listed above, as if you actually had one, please don’t be bothered. I would have listed them all, but that might have been awkward.
