This bloggy journey

So, I've been really thinking over this whole blog thing lately. This weekend I was all excited reading what was going on at She Speaks. I found myself anxiously awaiting Sophie, Mel and Shannon to post about all the excitement. I am still so new in the bloggy world and it still sometimes amazes me. I just have these thoughts in my mind and want to get them out. It has given me a sense of freedom if you will. My husband is still afraid I'm giving away all the family secrets or something. But occasionally... I see that he has hopped over here and given it a read. I came in one day and he was all smiles.

But there are days I struggle with what to say and how to say it. I was relieved today when Boo Mama posted about her talk at the conference. It was about finding your voice in this blogosphere. I appreciate her reminding us all to be ourselves. It is easy to ready your favorite blog and think..."if I could just use that pithy tone Christine has or her quick wit" or be ever so deep and thoughtful as Jenifer or spiritually hysterical and thought provoking as Jon.

But I am just ME, good ole me. I am who I am. I hope you like me, but even if you don't I gotta be me. I know I get kinda pensive and thoughtful one day and talk about a crock pot the next, but I think it all fits, because that is me. That is my busy, working mom life who at almost 38 years old, sometimes doesn't quite know who I want to be when I grow up. I do know that I am enjoying the journey, this crazy, busy, frantic, fun, full of love, struggling to be the woman of God I want to be and feeling blessed beyond measure as I travel down the road.

Thanks for walking down the path with me. I hope we can all be inspired together as we learn from one another and share our lives.
