So this is Blogging??

First of all let me say that I never would have imagined that I would EVER be a blogger especially since I don't even like to journal - BUT since we don't live near any family I thought maybe this might be a good way for them to keep up with our family.  That of course is assuming that anybody would actually want to keep up with us!  Who knows I might be horrible at this and quickly give it up.  I hope not...but you never know.  So here goes nothing....

The year 2011 is finally here and with that comes the infamous New Year's Resolutions!  I have never been good at keeping those stupid things but once again I made a list with the hopes that I will actually accomplish them.  I feel like making realistic resolutions is the key - so this year I tried to be practical.  Can you guess what one of my resolutions was???  You got it...Blogging!!  I feel like if not for any other reason my blog will be an account of our daily lives for my children to read later on...a legacy if you will.  A way for them to reflect on their childhood and maybe get a glimpse into my life and what it was like to be their mother.  But most importantly a place to reflect on all that God has done for us!  Hopefully, as I enter the year 2012 I will have pages and pages of posts to give a testimony of what a wonderful life I have and what a mighty God I serve!


  1. Love to read blogs and I loved your blog on Michael. You're blessed with a great family - Hope ya'll have a great 2011!!

  2. Those are the same reasons I blog. First, for God and His glory. It's amazing what He does for us and teaches us, and it's exciting to share it. Next, for my kids, their wives (one day), and my grandkids - so they can see what life was like growing up, from mom's perspective. And finally, because it's a fun, creative hobby for me (a not so creative person). You do a wonderful job writing, and I look forward to reading more!

  3. Thank you Marsha and Alison! Hopefully I will be able to keep it up!
