Drop A Love Bomb!

I recently realized that I never posted about this wonderful group of people. Almost two years ago I wrote a post called "30 Things You Might Not Know About My Illness-National Invisible Illness Awareness Week". The next morning, I woke up and found that my email was flooded with comments on that blog post. I got on my blog and was speechless. I had over a hundred comments on that one post. Where were all these comments coming from? Several people posted in their comments about a love bomb, but I didn't know what that meant. As more comments came in that day and week and month, I was just speechless once again. There were almost 200 comments on that one post. I was in tears as I read the comments that day and the days that followed.

I don't remember when I finally figured out where all the comments were coming from. These people are part of a group called "Love Bomb (or Drop A Love Bomb)".

People from all over the world participate in encouraging people every week through this website. Their motto is, "We change the world every week, in just five minutes". People that are a part of love bomb nominate other people that need some encouragement. Every week, they pick one blog or person to "love bomb". Then, they go and leave encouragement in the comments. Leaving a comment takes less than five minutes, but these comments really change the world.

Two years ago when they left comments on my blog, I didn't have many followers. I thought that only people who knew me in person read my blog because I hadn't been blogging for long. I didn't really see how my blog made a difference or made an impact. I definitely didn't think people all over the world would read it.

To hear from hundreds of people that what I'm doing really IS making a difference, is incredible. They encouraged me to keep going, to keep spreading awareness for this disease, to keep trusting in God, and to keep sharing my story and faith because it is making a difference and helping people. They said that God is really using me. To hear that from people literally all over the world was so encouraging, and still is today. I've never felt more inspired to keep sharing my story and faith.

Even to this day, if I need encouragement, I go and read those comments. They still encourage me.

I wanted to tell you about them so that you might join them in encouraging people. It takes literally less than five minutes a week, and you can do it from your computer or phone anywhere. They really made a difference in my life and continue to make a difference in other people's lives. You always hear negative things on the news about crimes, or bad things people are doing. But there are still good people who are doing great things. I wish the news would show more positive things like this.

Their website is Drop A Love Bomb (http://dropalovebomb.com). You can partner with them to get notifications each week of the next love bomb mission. They will email you the next mission!

I'm so blessed by and thankful for these people! I feel very honored that they chose to love bomb me. I can't thank them enough. I'm sorry that it's taken me so long to give a proper thank you to the people at love bomb. Thank you so much!!! I will continue to support you!!
