Well, it is official. I have finally taken the plunge into the real world of blogging. It has taken me forever to get it all figured out, and I still have a LONG, LONG way to go, but I think I'm headed in the right direction. There have been some pretty major set backs lately, but I'm really pleased to say that I'm at least getting it started.
As some of you know, I did a few posts on what some might would consider a 'blog' on Facebook but I just didn't seem to have much of a following there because 1) it is hard to find readers there because it is difficult to navigate and 2) the sane folks who still haven't gotten lured in by 'the housewife's equivalent to crack', AKA Facebook, are not able to read my posts there without signing up for an account. Plus, I have not been feeling very well the last couple of months, so I haven't been keeping it updated as much as I would have liked.
Therefore, I thought I would start fresh with a new blog here where anyone can read it if they want. I plan to use it as a tool to continue to educate my friends and family - and even strangers who happen to stop by - about my disease and how it affects my life and the lives of my family. I will also use it to keep everyone up-to-date on what all is going on in our lives. Most of the time, there won't be a tremendous amount to write about but at least you will know what we're up to. I also believe it will be a great outlet for me to share some of my feelings about the struggles I face as I deal almost daily with pain and fear, anger and guilt, disappointment and frustration. However, I will also share all the good stuff, too, like the complete love and faith I have in my awesome husband who always treats me like a queen, the tremendous gratefulness I have for my awesome family who is ALWAYS here to support me on the good days and the bad, my thankfulness for our loving church family and friends who have always stood by our side through thick and thin and, most of all, my joy which I continue to find in my Lord and Savior each and every day. Without the awesome support group I have in my family, friends and my walk with my Savior, I honestly don't know where I would be today. No matter what, I am one blessed lady!
See ya soon!
