There are bloggers who have touched my heart and who I have chosen to dedicate a post to as my way of saying “Thank You” to them for being a part of my little blogging world.
Just a few days ago, we were commenting on Pat's page about how surprised and grateful we all are to have run across each other on here. (Watch out, Pat – you’re turn is coming up..just keep that wretched cat away from me!)
One of the bloggers that I’m so grateful to have met is Workingdan. Sometimes I call him Dan or WD if I’m feeling particularly lazy. He’s one those bloggers that just popped up and surprised me. I made assumptions about him that were so far off; I should be embarrassed. Dan knows I made those initial assumptions because I was dumb enough to put them in comments somewhere on my old blog and he never took offense. (Good thing I shut that blog down and started this one!)
I found Dan’s blog at a time when I was moving away from blogs that dealt with what my blog primarily deals with all the time. I needed a break. I needed to laugh. His blog did just that, it provided me with laughter - a lot!! I was hooked!
He and I commented back and forth on each other’s blogs and then one day in February, I was working on my fourth step and having a tough time. It was giving me a fit, making me angry and sad and I mentioned God in my post. That was the day Dan revealed his true self, the inner most personal, Dan. Not just the comedic Dan.
I’ll spare you the extra reading – just understand they are deep and personal posts and he talks about his own personal struggles and revelations that began in our comments to each other. It was so uplifting and inspiring. I was truly amazed that this was the same guy I’d been reading for weeks.
Here are the links if you want to see what I’m babbling about:
I had assumed he was just some beer drinking, football watching, peeing off the deck kind of guy…I mean where would I get that idea? Turns out, he’s one of the kindest, insightful guys I’ve run across on Blogger.
Dan also has a smokin’ hot wife, Mrs. Workingdan. She makes guest appearances on his blog and her sense of humor has me laughing every time she’s on there. Especially in her latest video!
Dan, thank you for your words of encouragement when I needed them most back in February. You truly helped me by sharing yourself so freely on my blog.
