WordPress told me this was my first post so I thought I would go with it. I have wanted to do this for so long and here I am doing it. I have always been a late bloomer. I already blog with my crazy sisters over at The Mary Sisters on all sorts of things, but I wanted a place where I could document everything for my family. I want them to be able to look back on these pages to be reminded that they are loved and remember the little things. I want to remember the little things. I’ve tried doing this in a paper journal, but I have never be able to pull it off so I am hoping that the prospect of somebody actually reading will help with my sticktoitiveness.
My mom suddenly passed away when I was 21 and I have nothing of her thoughts, her feelings about me or anything for that matter documented except a few journal entries my sister found. They were very depressing. I know from experience we tend to want to write when things are hard. I have the college journals to prove it. This blog is not going to focus on the hard stuff and that’s not to say I will never write about it, but I want to focus on the beauty.
A record of life to look back is a great thing, but more importantly is the now. At this point in my life I want to write. This is my space for that.
