A blog is not just a blog. When I started blogging over a year ago, I wanted to use it as a beginning to a writing platform. I am now taking Blog 101 and hoping to restructure, re commit, and recruit followers! My blog has many real life categories. Life is different each day, and luckily each day offers new lessons, laughter, decisions, sadness, even anger. My blogs purpose is to challenge me to write about many circumstances that have evoked emotion. Being a cancer survivor, a mother to an adult addict, a sister to a dying sister, a friend to people that have experienced true tragedy, a woman that has gone from hearing to deaf, I will draw from some true and real life experience. I am just someone who has a mother n law that lives next door, and that in itself, is a novel. Believe me!
As Jimmy Valvono said in his Espry speech in 1993, we should all laugh each day, use our brain to think each day, and be moved by emotion enough to cry each day. (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=HuoVM9nm42E) If you have never watched his final speech of his life, do yourself a favor and do so.
I hope you will join me as I share some of my life experience. I hope it will be empowering, funny, captivating, and emotional. I hope it gives you something that you may need for the day.
