I sometimes loose motivation to blog because I do not have a lot of blog readers. Sometime I ask myself why I even keep a blog? I realized a couple of days ago that attitude seems unfair to those who do read my blog. Even though my "fan base" may be small, I have met some incredible people out there who are extremely supportive. I have really found a lot of inspiration through blogging, so its important that I continue to focus on all the positive aspects of this form of networking.
Speaking of supporters, I received two phone calls yesterday related to CF care. The first was from Mrs. Wonderful, the CF Clinic social worker. She was just checking on me before she leaves for the CF Conference on the east coast. She will be gone through the end of the month and won't be at my clinic appointment next week. Although we didn't get a chance to talk, it was nice of her to call.
Second, I spoke to the event's coordinator at the Northern California Cystic Fibrosis Foundation to have a kick off conversation for next years Great Strides Walk. It is still several months off, but she wanted to check in with me to give me some encouragement for fundraising.
Now, I know both of these women get paid to do these jobs. However, I think our community is very lucky to have thoughtful and dedicated professionals. I am thankful for both of them. And I truly believed that they both really do care about me and the CF community. So, instead of thinking about all those people out there that don't read or follow my blog, I'm going to remember these two women calling to check on me just because they care.
