I’m Baaacccckkkkk!

No worries, every one is still with us. Each older, most wiser.

I have continued to be a mother, wife, daughter and caregiver. I had a long hesitation on whether continuing with a blog was the right thing to do. There are only so many hours in each day, should I spend a minute of precious time doing, this? Does this cause unwanted exposure to my family?

I am not an active participant in social media. Quite frankly, it is a little overwhelming to see that everyone has a “perfect life.” What? You say that isn’t the case? You are correct, there are also those that post completely inappropriate comments about spouses, significant others, etc. I was a person that posted. My family is spread coast to coast and close friends that live internationally, these platforms allowed me to instantly share, almost live moments at kids’ sporting events, band concerts and the like. One day my world changed. It felt as if posting these moments was allowing an unsolicited view into our world. I completely stopped all social media.

I didn’t miss it. My parents and family missed the pictures. Texting was not everyone’s forte, they learned as this was our connection. As life continued, I occasionally popped on to see pictures and updates from my friends. I may be the only person, but this made me doubt my friendships! It was overwhelming to see image after image of events that didn’t include me. Now … there was no reason for me to be in them! and my friendships were and still are solid. But it has affirmed to me, that I did not need social media. Yep – now you can guess my age!

Wow, tangent! It is related, at least in my mind. My questions to myself: Is a blog on the same level as social media? My life isn’t a perfect image, does it belong out “there”? Is this a waste of my time?

In the end, I believe something I journal, may help someone else. Even if it is just to know that you are not the only person out there living with any of my situations. If there is anything that I have learned that can help, I would like to do that. Additionally, writing is therapeutic for me. I couldn’t make up this stuff that is my life!

I look forward to the what the next months bring!

Thanks for joining me.

I am a daughter, a wife, a mom of three boys and a "mom" to boys from other mothers. I live for my family and work hard to set an example of a life in Christ. I have to remind myself that to enjoy the little things because the chaos can become overwhelming. I can't make up the things that happen in our world, so after much encouragement, I decided to write about them. Hopefully you will enjoy the stories and think, "Hmm, it's not just at my house!"

  1. I am so glad you decided to write about your life. We all have daily struggles and when we write down those struggles, it helps us to process them and let them go.
    Humor is paramount in these situations. My gramps was a comedic writer and producer for films and television in the 1930’s through the 1970’s. He was a member of the Academy from 1945 until his death in 2003.
    I loved growing up with him. I loved his stories, but what I loved most of all was his ability to laugh. And, laugh he did and I did. He taught me to find humor in mundane or banal situations which allowed me to find humor in horrific or stressful situations. His gift of laughter has helped me overcome all obstacles and has helped to keep me sane.
    It is wonderful to see your life through your eyes. I know you smile and laugh often; I can see and hear it in your writing.
