Logging Off

 The last few months have been difficult, to say the least. Life brought me to a very deep emotional/physical/spiritual valley & posting here has been the farthest thing on my mind. Ummm...I guess that's not really true. I tried to post a few times, but realized that no matter what I said, or how I said it, it sorta came out negative or depressing, so I decided to just not post for a while.

Well, recently, I've been trying really hard to pull myself out of that valley. I've been trying super hard to focus on the blessings that God has given me. I have a wonderful family with 4 AWESOME kids. I have an incredible church. I have a wonderful husband. I have a God who is faithful & true. On and on I could go about the why focus on the bad?!

Enter facebook.

Every day, something is said or done that either hurts me or someone else. No matter what I post, I end up offending someone, and in return, their offense hurts me! I am mortified when I find out that something I said was either hurtful, or a stumbling block to someone. I don't want to be that person!! I just wanted an outlet for keeping in touch with people, posting photos, posting opinions & engaging in discussions on current events. I guess I just don't know how to do that without making someone mad. *sigh* That's not ever what I want. Ever.

So, I'm done.

Yes, really.

I cannot come out of a valley, if I'm constantly being pulled down into it.

Enter the blog.

Seriously, if y'all want to keep up with the craziness of my daily life, please feel free to follow me here. I promise to post daily. Now that I'm not facebooking, I'll have loads to post! haha! And, if you don't wan to do that, Dan has fb woven into his DNA, so I'm sure there will still be lots of pictures & videos of the kids. (Even if you don't know him, feel free to friend him!) Hopefully posting here will cut down on the unintended consequence of posting on facebook.

I love you all so very very much!! I hope you can understand.

  1. You're blog looks so pretty! I really want a "girlier" font for mine but I'm afraid to mess with CSS coding stuff. Maybe someday...I've been "tweaking" it again all day today! Glad you're going to be more consistent on here. You have have great things to share!

    1. Thank you! To be honest, I'm really excited to be back. I can say & do so much more here than I ever could on fb. I'm also taking the plunge into tweeting. Call me crazy, but I still have to post some sort of "status" somewhere. Old habits die hard, I guess! lol!

  2. ACK!!! Get rid of the captcha code!!! I HATE those things! So does everyone else. Normally I'll just click away and not leave a comment- too hard to read. You can just change your comments to hold them until you can moderate them so you don't get spam.

    1. Oh goddess of the blogosphere: What is a captcha code and how do I get rid of it?! lol!!

    2. The captcha code is the annoying thing that makes you type in letter and numbers before you can submit a comment (to make sure you're not a spam robot) It's IMPOSSIbLE to read and I get them wrong all the time. NOTHING turns off a reader more! :) SO, you should be able to fix it in your settings. Settings>Posts and Comments>turn ON moderation (so you can approve comments first) and turn OFF word verification. That should do it.
