Some Thoughts

I don't know how many of you have clicked over to Clay's update page (by following the link on the right). But, I thought I'd let you know that he was released from the hospital this week--to the Ronald McDonald House--he still faces lots of therapy and multiple surgeries. Seeing how many people are now following his updates got me to thinking what a crazy, cool thing the Internet can be.

Who would have ever thought that something like a blog could unite so many for a common goal? Who'd have thought that hundreds (sometimes thousands) of people would read words a stranger had written, pray for the stranger, tell their friends about it and get them involved?

The Internet is a vast place, but I am currently following blogs written on each coast, in the middle of the country and even in Australia. I feel like I personally know some of the people whose blogs I read and would seriously consider possibly trying to meet them if I were ever in their neck of the woods.

Somehow this great big world seems a little smaller and more friendly when viewed from a computer screen.
