Why blog? I guess I have a desire to begin writing about some of the things I have learned over my lifetime. I turned 60 this year and began to realize I actually might have something to share with others. The other reason I want to write some of my thoughts is to record them for my grandchildren. They are all pretty young at this point but there will come a day when they will have their own families and my words just might help give them some insight on how to live life to the fullest and embrace each challenge that comes their way. It would absolutely thrill me if they looked to the blog of their Nana and found a few words of wisdom to help them along life’s way.
Why make this blog public if it’s primarily for my grandchildren? Well, maybe, just maybe there is a young mom who needs to know she will survive to the next season of her life. Maybe there is another woman just like me who needs to know her thoughts and emotions are similar to mine and embracing them will give her the confidence and foundation she needs to get her into the next season of life.
What is the real reason? I need to tell my story. I know it will bring hope to others because it has brought hope to me. I have found that God is so good to prepare us for each season of life. He loves us so much and promises to be in the middle of the “good” and “bad” of our lives without judging us or condemning us but by teaching us as we embrace each season that comes our way.
Thanks for reading my story!
