Yay! I've done this blogging thing for a whole year! At first, I felt kind of shy about posting and sharing my thoughts with you, but it didn't take me long to feel more comfortable and to come out of my shell. I know I haven't gone real deep most of the time and I haven't posted many negative posts, but I think that's OK. After all, it's my blog, right?
Some of my favorite posts have been about Daniel or Erica. I love these kids in different ways and am an unashamed proud mom and aunt! :-) It was also fun to blog about the Advent Jesse Tree ornaments in December. I received as much or more blessing from doing that, and was able to bless others in the process (from comments that were made).
Thanks to all of you who continue to read and comment and encourage me in this process. It's been fun to get to know others better through blogging and being a part of the blogging community. I think I'll keep going. Goodness knows I'm not journaling in longhand these days, so at least I'll have something to look back on to recount this time of my life!
