I am a wife, mother (of a teenager), daughter, sister, sister-in-law, daughter-in-law, friend, Christian, lawyer (recovering), and person who loves life. I’ve experience some difficulties and pain in my life, and am thankful they have made me stronger and shaped who I am.
I love to write, and often “write” things in my head that I never commit to paper. That’s why I decided to blog. To make room in my head for more. When I start writing in my head, the thing I am writing will stay there and take up space, thoughts, and energy for some time. I figure if I write it down here in my blog I will be able to move on to the next thing more quickly.
My law school income tax professor commented on my blog: “You are writing from the heart, and as always, doing it well. I hope you stick with it — there are always moments when a blogger gets tired — because you are making us all think. Which is what this internet thing should be all about.” I hope you agree.
Jan. 7, 2011 Update:
After more than a year of blogging, I have found that I love it even more than I thought I would! I have made some wonderful new blogging friends and had an opportunity to share the love of Jesus with so many readers. I have learned that some of my real world friends and family regularly read my blog, and that is exciting and scary at the same time. I continue to write what is on my heart and rambling around in my mind.
Starting in 2011, I decided to take the WordPress Post-a-Day challenge. I posted most days in 2010, but not every day. To help me keep up with that challenge, I have added some additional themes for the blog, along the lines of Recipe Friday that I started in September 2010. Throughout 2011, I will be posting Music Monday, Thankful Thursday, and Psalm Sunday, as well as continuing with Recipe Friday. I will leave Tuesday, Wednesday, and Saturday open for whatever comes to mind. I also want to do more book reviews of some of my favorite books.
