Two Years of Blogging...
I have found the blogging community to be friendly and supportive. I've made some amazing friendships that would have never come about any other way. I've met people from Texas, Wisconsin, Arkansas and as far away as Australia... all over the States and all over the world. My little blog has expanded my universe. It's also enabled me to keep old friends and family up to date with what's going on in my life.
These days I am rarely sad when I think of my mom. I have borrowed from her sense of optimism and love for life. My Mary Engelbreit calendar has a quote for each day. The quote for mom's birthday was "I am here to live out loud!" It made me laugh. Such optimism! That's how my mom lived her life. You can see it in her picture... even her eyes are smiling! I'm going to keep working at "living out loud"... not hiding when things are hard, or sad, but facing it all head on. Life is too good to let it pass by unnoticed!
