On May 10th an employee from the technical support department of my website’s host server contacted me.
His words were unforgettable.
“Miss Stafford, either your site is under attack or something on there is going ‘viral.’”
He added that if the traffic to my site continued at this rate, we’d have to make changes.
I couldn’t help but smile through my tears. I knew my site was not under attack … I knew something quite wonderful was happening. “How To Miss a Childhood” was being shared all over the world … and hundreds of thousands people were coming to my site to read it.
In the days and weeks following the publication of that post, the traffic did not let up and changes did, in fact, have to be made. But I am not going to talk about the changes made to my site. I am going to talk about the changes made in the hearts and lives of those who read the post. Their stories keep coming. Every day for the past 60 days, their stories just keep coming.
