I began this blog in February of 2009. Until that time I wrote in a journal... Page after smeared page from a left handed writer now sit in my bottom drawer waiting for a time when my children want to be reminded of their mothers love for them.
I like my blog a lot better, no smears, I can reword any section I want with a click of the mouse and best of all SPELL CHECK!!!! :)
I started sharing my blog with others a few months later. Something I often wish I hadn't done.
You see, I don't write "for all of the world to read" but for Shane and my children. If the Lord wills that I should live to be old, there will come a time when my mind has betrayed me and my footsteps are ragged and slow. I want them to have a written remembrance of my love. Or should my last day be today and I never have a chance for that final "I love you" ....I want them to find it here.
I want my children and husband to forever understand that I do not have a heart beat of my own but simply the echo of their heart, beating in my chest . Why I do the things I do and believe what I believe... that is here also.
I think this blog is a great way for those we don't see very often to keep up with what we are doing, it makes it easy for me too. For that reason alone, I leave it public. But there are others, others who sometimes make my blog hard to write.
If you disagree with something I write...the comment box is there. I don't mind that they see opposition.. it causes us to research our beliefs more thoughtfully and our beliefs become more concrete by that. If I offend you, however,....... tough. I won't apologize and I certainly won't change it. I didn't write it for you, and while it is sitting here for you to read, that doesn't mean you have to.
Maybe I should put at the top... This blog is dedicated to my God and the men and women who make my life worth living......if you don't like it ~ make yer own. Ahhh, but then my attitude would be showing wouldn't it?
At any rate, children get to doing what you do best...making your momma proud. I can't wait to see what I write next.
