New York Family Magazine Bloggers We Love

It's not everyday that something brings a tear to my eyes. But reading about myself and this corner of the world wide web that I work so hard to maintain did it for me a couple days ago.

I was extremely ecstatic when I found out that I was chosen as one of the ten people for the Bloggers We Love piece over on New York Family Magazine. I love the site and read it all the time so being featured on it was major.

But I was not quite prepared for the thoughtful and kind words said about me. It warmed my heart and brought tears to my eyes. I don't blog for recognition -- I do it to share my experiences, to let the next person going through a difficult time know that everything will be okay, to talk about lessons learned and why it's important to keep pushing and keep pressing towards goals. To talk to single mothers. To talk to younger mothers. To connect with you. And you. And you.

But it still feels good to get confirmation that I'm making a true difference while doing this work. And the kind and thoughtful words? They're a real tearjerker:
"Harper makes a schedule look good. She holds a full-time job as an educator, is a single parent to 6-year-old Aiden, and runs a heartfelt blog. Did we mention she's in her 20s and has three degrees from Columbia University? On top of it all, she still has time to look fashionable! Despite her success in life, Harper has faced serious challenges, and she's not afraid to get real about it." -- New York Family Magazine
See what I mean when I said it's a real tearjerker?!

Head on over to New York Family Magazine to check out the full article. And get your tissues ready!
