In the almost six years since I started blogging here at Not The Former Things, a lot has happened.
Not just in my home life (because seven serious diagnoses across two kids is easily described as a lot…) but here, on the blog.
A few crazy viral posts, three books, and opportunities to write for other blogs that I have loved for years – I would’ve been so excited to hear this was a part my future back then.
But what I know now is that the greatest success in this writing this blog isn’t any of those things.
They’re great, but the absolute best part of blogging is you.
The chance to connect with other mom’s just like me. Not feeling so alone. Developing a true community of hard-working, kind, wonderful people who I can’t imagine doing this life without.
I am humbled and so very grateful for this opportunity.
Thank you from the bottom of my heart.
It’s also encouraging and fun for me to see what you’ve enjoyed most here at Not The Former Things. I thought I would share them with you as well. Here are the Top 10 Most-Read Posts of all time, in reverse order.

It doesn’t surprise me one bit that the Top 3 are all about topics that have been the greatest challenges in my life as a mom.
It is my continued commitment and hope to share an honest look at this life – the good and the bad, the messy and the beautiful, the desperate and the joyful.
Thank you for joining me on this journey.
