"MiMi's Making Memories" is ONE YEAR OLD today!
On May 29, 2008, what began as an attempt to establish a Google account so that I could leave a comment on my daughter's blog, turned into "MiMi's Making Memories". As Faith designed my blog for me, I had no idea what I was doing, what I would ever have to write about and more importantly, who would possibly be interested in reading it! I just thought it would be a good way for me to "journal" about those I love most -- my precious family.
I had NO idea the impact that blogging would soon have on my life. I began blogging and in the process I "met" and fell in love with some of the most wonderful women - and literally from all over the country! (And even a few from other parts of the world!) Over the past year, I have been blessed with the opportunity to meet some of you "in person", and what a treat that was!
My prayer for my blog on that Thursday in May still remains the same:
"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."
I am so blessed to call so many of you my friends. You really are so important to me! I look forward to reading your blogs, as well as, reading your precious comments that you leave on my posts. Many days, the Lord has used so many of your sweet words to encourage me in such a mighty way!
Thank you for taking the time to read my blog and for all of your thoughtful comments. Thank you, also, for "enduring" all the pictures of my kids, grandchildren and "grand-dogs"! Thank you for just being "YOU"!
I look forward to another year of blogging and hopefully meeting many more of you "in person"!
May God richly bless each and EVERY one of you! I love you, my sweet friends!
