Caring Bridge vs. Blogspot
Just thinking tonight how much I wished I had started a Caring Bridge site for Oliver at the beginning of this journey. I just was already familiar with Blogger as I had a blogspot for several years already. I read so many Caring Bridge sites and am uplifted when I read so many of the kind words posted. Then I come to Oliver's page and day after day I see 'no new comments'. Now I can't speak for every parent that is going through something like this, but I can say that it takes some of the sting away when someone lets you know that they care. It's like hearing them say, "I see you. I'm thinking of you. I'm praying for you." I don't know if people just don't know how to use Blogger and leave comments or what it is. On facebook, or other websites I just leave hearts to let other people know that I don't have words, but I feel their pain in my heart and want to let them know that I recognize and validate their feelings. Maybe I'm just looking for validation. Who knows. Just something that's been bugging me for a while. It's a lonely place to be.
