In starting this blog, I must ask myself, what is my goal with this blog? Do I merely wish to show off pictures of my boys? Do I want to be witty and make all who read laugh until they cry? Do I want to share my inmost thoughts and feelings? I'm still working on this question. You see, I've been faithfully journaling since the summer of 1997 and love the feel of pouring myself out on the pages of a spiral bound diary. Those spiral bound books are locked away in our fire proof gun cabinet, as they are one of my most treasured possessions. I am able to read in them and see all the growing I've done in the past 11 years. (And for those of you who know me well, I've been through some unbelievable ups and downs in that time!) So, I don't want blogging to replace my journaling, and I don't know that I could open myself up the way I have in my journals, but I do want this to have some meaning due to the time spent doing it. I enjoy reading those blogs that have some consistency and thought to them as well as the ones that make me laugh, so we'll see where this one goes!
