New Blog Introduction

I've been thinking some time about starting to blog about this crazy thing we call life, but it had to wait. I've been building up to it for years, and yet life as I knew it came to a stand-still 13 months ago. Part of me is afraid to put down these deep, dark thoughts, and yet I wonder if anyone will even read. Or if "they" do, perhaps my experiences will let someone else know they're not alone? If no one reads, and if nothing else, then at least I'll be "journaling" which is supposed to be therapeutic in and of itself, right? Or MAYBE you'll all be like, "Thank you GOD, I'm not as freaky as HER!!" lol

I thought about themes.....Quilting through Grief.... Sewing to Save My Sanity...... but I realized I've actually come to a place that's a step further than just living in my grief. Truthfully, at the time, I didn't know if it'd ever be possible. And truthfully, I never live in any way beside within the confines of my grief, and yet now there is more....

I love being a mom, a wife, a quilter, and I love to read, write, and sew. I love to talk & interact, share thoughts & exchange ideas. I have two teenage daughters (17 & 13) and a son who went to Heaven on March 19, 2009 when he was 10. I've been married to my high school sweetheart for 22 years & I just celebrated my 40th birthday! Above all & in front of all, I love GOD for being my savior & salvation.

Whew, that was a lot of information in a little paragraph, but I guess that sums up the important bits.

So I wonder, is this enough for a first-time blogger? Did I write enough?? I guess the introduction is done, so I suppose so. Now I can ponder the etiquette of blogging... how often is too often or not enough? How varied should I make my topics? Or should I even care & just go with my own flow?? Yeah, I think go with the flow.... that's kinda become my mantra in the last decade, and it's basically worked, so I guess I'll stick to it.

Good night!
