What, you may ask? It seems I am trying many new things, but what I am fascinated with at this moment is trying to set up my WordPress blog. Normally I would be asleep at 2:00 a.m. but not today. I have been sick and the random awakenings in the wee morning hours give me plenty of time to play with WordPress. What I’ve been trying to do is add photos, set up a menu, design my theme, describe myself, and most importantly, figure out why I am doing all this.
Why do we blog? Why do we read blogs? What is so fascinating about other people’s thoughts? What do people want to read? I have many questions and find myself delving deeper into this new world of blogging to find answers.
I have a tattoo on my foot. I'm sure it seems totally out of character for those who know me, for someone "my age" and conservative background. When I got it, it sure was a big surprise to people I knew at the time (including my husband!)!
It's not a tattoo that I got when I was young or one I got spur of the moment on a whim.

It has been a couple of months since I have posted, and I have been wondering why that is. The holidays hit at about the same time I stopped and that may or may not have had something to do with it...I am not sure. This holiday season was our first without Mike, and there was a feeling that we were missing something or in this case someone.
I found this on http://www.onewomansperspective02.wordpress.com. It is often so hard to know what to say or do when someone has lost a friend or family member, but even harder when that person has lost a child. This article may help others.
As a grieving mother, I’ve been fortunate to have many loving, caring people surround me with help and support. I know that God sends people and resources to me just when I need them. Today is the six month “anniversary” of my son’s death. I am in need of solace and time to cry without worrying about what anyone else thinks.
As I continue this journey of coping with the death of my son, I find, or people recommend, articles and websites that help. This one is very good at describing the grief process after losing a child.
I hope it will help someone.
Yes, I admit that fear has kept me from making changes and taking charge of my life path. I am in the process of making some major changes in my life and http://www.PositivelyPositive.com has some excellent articles on fear. In earlier posts, I discussed some of my fears. In an odd way, it is the examination of my fear that is prompting me to make changes and take some huge leaps. I will write about some of these later. For now, I have found some excellent resources on fear.
