Magic Onions Milestone :: 4 Million Visits - The Magic Onions

Magic Onions Milestone :: 4 Million Visits

Welcome to all my Magic Friends.

My heart is filled with gratitude today. When I started writing my little blog three years ago, little did I know that 4 Million people would visit me here. In fact, the idea would have seemed utterly preposterous! I started writing The Magic Onions because I was a new immigrant mom in America and was feeling lonely and isolated and very far away from my family back in Africa. I wanted so much to share my beautiful new family with all the people I loved. A friend suggested I start writing a blog so that my friends and family back home could visit my space to see into our daily lives. I wrote my very first entry on New Year’s Day 2009 (you can read my first post here) and immediately felt better. My mom and dad could refer to all the things we had been up to in our weekly phone conversation, they could see my babies and share in all the little daily things that make life extraordinary.

And, in documenting our daily happenings, I realized that I was blessed indeed. Our lives were so full and meaningful.

When I first started writing The Magic Onions, I would never have guessed at the impact it would have on my life. Who could have foretold the beautiful people I would meet through this magical space, the stories that would flood in to touch my soul, the ideas, the feelings, the happiness that would blossom from this page?

Three years (and 4 Million visitors) later , I am the opposite of isolated and share each day with a community of people just like me… you!

You are all sparkles in my soul!

Thank you for being part of this beautiful community… I am honored each time I feel your presence.

Here are three entries from the past that make me smile… and a little nostalgic too. Time passes too quickly ::

Blessings and magic,
