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.

Blessings in Disguise

Quote of the Day
“Our real blessings often appear to us in the shape of pains, losses and disappointments, but let us have patience and we soon shall see them in their proper figures.”

Joseph Addison


“The be-all and end-all of life should not be to get rich, but to enrich the world.”

– Bertie Charles Forbes

Understanding Suicide

I just read this and my heart is still pounding. It is powerfully written. It shows raw emotion over a friend’s suicide. As I read it, and it’s long, I thought about my son. I wondered, is this what he was thinking when he took that one fatal step, never letting anyone know he was hurting before he did it.

Understanding Suicide.

I Run Out Of Stupid Things To Do.

Read This First

I came across this through the National Suicide Prevention Hotline. It was on my Facebook newsfeed. I tried to cut and paste the article but it’s not easy on my iPad mini.

Read this article if you are considering suicide. Read this article if anyone you know is considering suicide, so that you can share it with them. Just Read This.
