So here goes nothin'...

OK,  I have decided to write a blog. In our culture that makes me probably the most un-unique person you know. Everyone and their third cousin's nephew's hairdresser has a blog these days. Still, I found after writing my first blog entry I thought it was pretty nifty. However, I feel that it is only fair to give potential readers a heads up as to what they can expect:

I will sometimes write about grief and loss.

Losing my son five years ago was one of the biggest turning points in my life. It has colored so much of my perspective and I tend to get fired up when I feel like the general public needs to be educated on how to not inflict further trauma on someone just doing the best they can in the midst of grief.

I will sometimes write about God.

Being a Christian is another huge part of my life and since daily I am trying to figure out what path God wants me on you will probably read words like "Jesus", "Bible", and "Prayer". If the occasional verse bothers you then this probably isn't the blog for you.

On the other hand I will probably offend my overly churchy readers.

Here is the deal: I fail a lot, my sense of humor tends to go to the twisted frequently, and the occasional curse word will more than likely find its way into a post or two. If you are easily bothered by content that will more than likely fall into the PG-13 range then this may not be the blog for you.

So if you think reading my random thoughts won't send you running and screaming into the streets then I'd love to have you on board. There is a handy box on the right side of the page where you can also sign up to be notified of future posts by email.


  1. I admire you--I don't have the discipline to blog. Okay to cite you in my creative/memoir writing class this summer? Pam
