I thought it would be fun to start a blog. Jess did it and it looks so nice and easy. Apparently I am not as computer savvy. So, I guess at least for now, my page will be bland and unexciting visually, which goes against everything that I am; but I will be content with its simplicity.
I just thought that this would be a nice activity for me, since I've been spending a lot more time on the computer over the last several months. Occasionally, I have astounding philosophical thoughts and no one to share them with! Alright, admittedly those thoughts are few and far between, but it does happen. And more often, I find something that the kids say or do to be precious, or funny or inspiring, and want to remember it.
But, it's so easy for me to get caught up in the every day; picking up toys, washing dishes, doing laundry, overseeing schoolwork, cooking, and in general just keeping the peace. Sometimes, I need to remember that though being "mom" is my dream job and incredibly important; I was somebody before that - and she's still in there somewhere.... How easily minimized are my other roles, when the role and responsibilities of "mom" are so large and immediate. I do have thoughts and feelings; regarding my family, my friends, my job, my life, my frustrations, fears, joys, dreams, my walk with the Lord, my growth, my struggles.
And these are what I intend to share here, in a fairly "safe" atmosphere, where anyone can read it, yet I don't have to know about it if they don't want to mention it! I hope it will be a place where I can keep track of milestones, both physical, like my children's accomplishments; and personal milestones. So, we'll see how this goes!
