OK --- I'M GIVING IT A TRY!!!

What started out as simply trying to create a Google account so that I could leave a comment on my daughter's blog, has now evolved into me creating a Blog of my own.  Mind you, that I have NO idea what I am doing!


I have enjoyed reading my daughter's blog, (and many others that she has recommended on her blog) so I have decided to join this bandwagon.  It seems that there are some really wonderful ladies out there in "blogland" and I am looking forward to developing friendships with some of them.

I am an avid photographer and if you are a friend or family member of mine, or if you ever take a trip with me --- you WILL be having your picture made!  I decided that this would be a great way to "journal" about those that I love the most - my precious family.

I am married to my best friend and I have 3 beautiful children, all of which I am fortunate to have live very near me.  I have a granddaughter, "E", who gets to spend lots of time with Mimi and Poppa so I am sure that you will be seeing lots of her on here! (Unfortunately, my other granddaughter, "M", lives in FL -- which is MUCH too far away!)

I have no idea whether I have anything to say that would be of any value to anyone else, but I would hope that having  been married for 30 years and raising 3 children would definitely have taught me some valuable lessons in life.  I know that the Lord sometimes allows us to go through things in life so that we can be a help to someone else going through similar things.  I pray that the life lessons He has taught me, and IS teaching me, will be an encouragement to others.

Thank you for stopping by my blog and please come back!
