On Sunday into Monday, this list filled Angie’s blog roll with quiet encouragement to Keep Believing. The authors of these posts, the majority of whom have never met Angie, shared stories, support, prayers, tears, and most of all love on a day when Angie would be momentously reminded of the devastating loss she has suffered.

I wanted to thank all of these incredible people for participating in what I am aptly calling the Keep Believing Post Day. I think the results of what took place are immeasurably cool.

Angie said in her blog post on that day “They are sending me their love and thoughts and prayers and links. This whole blog world that has introduced me to a new kind of friendship - one that has been very one sided for the last 6 months-”.

I have let my blog reading taper off quite a bit. When I do read others’ blogs, I don’t often read the comments left by others. I just don’t have the time lately. But I read Angie’s every post. I read every comment. There is something comforting in them. There is something reassuring in the fact that the words typed in a family room in Illinois can spread across the world and move hearts and minds. There is something uplifting in the fact that one woman can cause such a connection in the lives of so many strangers. I wouldn’t call that one sided.

Thanks so much for organizing it. It was a pleasure to do ANYTHING that might brighten Angie's day. I have a screenshot of her blogroll from that morning if you want it.
