The challenge was to write on one topic, each and every day, for the entire month.
If you're familiar with Pink Dryer Lint, you know that I've never been skilled at sticking to one topic. This month I've written about my relationship with running, my thoughts on Chinese food, and my love affair with organized closets. I've told you how I've rediscovered appreciation for watching my children sleep and how I'm casting my burdens, whether heavy or light, to the Lord. I've shared about being busy, slowing down, and making things right with my kids during those days when everything goes wrong.
In a nutshell, this month of blogging has yielded 31 posts about everyday life -- the messy, mundane, and glorious everydayness -- just as I promised. I'm so grateful that you've joined me.
Today marks the end of the 31 Day Challenge, but it's not the end of awesome.
To close the month, I'd like to ask something of you, if you're willing. I'm issuing an invitation to un-lurk. If you're a regular reader -- hey, even if you're a new reader -- would you leave a comment to introduce yourself? Granted, this isn't as cool as getting together and chatting over a nice slice of chocolate cake, but I'd sure love to hear from you!
