Blessed are those whose strength is in you, who have set their hearts on pilgrimage . . . They go from strength to strength, till each appears before God in Zion.

I confess!

I'm an internet stalker. It started off innocent enough. Just meandering through the blogosphere/facebook/myspace and checking out my friends pages. Then someone (a friend, a family member, an old college roommate) leaves them a comment and I think, "I wonder who that is..." Next thing I know I'm clicking over to their profile. Sometimes the privacy settings are activated, sometimes they're not. And I look at their page, their comments, their pics. I find it so interesting, getting this glimpse into someone's life that I wouldn't otherwise experience. It's like a reality show played out through the internet, and we all know how addicting reality shows can be!

If I were a bolder person, I would leave comments; befriend these new, interesting people. Just imagine what would be, if only . . .

Ok, am I scaring you yet? 'Cause I'm scaring myself!

I remember talking to a friend a few months ago who shares my secret addiction. When I told her about who I was internet stalking I believe her response was, "Just let me know if you need any help. I'm a professional stalker! I've stalked everyone from professional baseball players to weathermen to restaurant owners." How funny is that?! And she's one of the shyest people I know! But I was so glad to hear I'm alone in my obsession.

Ok, just had to share, 'cause I caught myself doing it again . . .

I completely understand how that can happen. But PLEASE don't stalk could get really sticky...

Aren't you glad to have a sis-in-law who can double as a Mommy too? ;-)
