As a famous American, Minnie Pearl, was known for saying, "I'm so glad to be here!"
It has been said that a journey begins with the first step. This is my first posting on my journey into blogland. I have received so much pleasure from reading your blogs, and hearing your experiences, and seeing glimpses into your lives.
My next door daughter, "Picket Fence Mom", insists that I can do this. When our girls were learning to ride their bicycles and would get discouraged, I can remember hearing myself saying, "You can do it!" over and over again. I suppose I need to heed my own advice. I'm not familiar with many of the blogging terms, and I'm sure I'll make some bobbles along the way...but please be patient with me. My mother always said, "Anything somebody can do a lot of, I can do a little of."
I haven't climbed any tall mountains, or flown around the globe, or anything spectacular. But I have been blessed by beautiful sunrises, sunsets, rainbows, precious family (natural and church), baby lambs, devoted pets, dear friends, flowers, and so many other things not bought with money.
So many of you have such deep thoughts and so ably express them. I know what I feel, but sometimes it's difficult to convey thoughts to paper (or in this case, screen). I never want to disappoint my Heavenly Father. I am abundantly blessed every day.
The photo at the top is of my front door. After removing the Christmas wreath, it was too early for spring flowers. So I walked around the yard and gathered greenery. After placing a container for water in the hanging basket, I just stuck the greenery in. So...welcome! Come for a visit anytime!
