happy blogiversary to me...

Blogging is so much more than an online journal of daily activities. It is not just a pretty URL with
perfectly arranged HTML. But it is an avenue, a portal into the very hearts of humanity.
Beautiful, blank, white space begging to be filled with dreams, ideas, reflections, stories...

It is about community.
It is about reaching out to people you may never have the chance to meet in person.
It is about building relationships and sharing your testimony...
learning lessons from each other that impact life.

They say it takes a village to raise a child...
I think it takes a village to do great things in general.
We need each other.

Blogging has been such a blessed adventure for me.
One that I was reluctant to take. Fearing I would fail, I put the idea off for years.
But on March 22nd, 2012 I found me some beautiful, blank, white space...

and began.

THANK YOU readers, friends, and family... I wish I could come give each and every
one of you a hug. Praying the words and pictures found in the day-to-day posts can at least
hug your heart. You are loved.

    My wishlist from Target is pretty basic, I have an almost teenage daughter who is growing out of clothes and shoes quicker than my clothing budget is expanding :)
