Ok, so I'm driving to work this morning thinking about what I was going to blog about today (other than my usual thankful post) and I got to wondering.. why? Again with eternal questions I know. But seriously, why? Why do I like raspberries better than strawberries? Why do people drive the way they do? Why does earth smell .. well.. earthy?
The question I was really wondering about tho is "Why blog?" Do we blog for ourselves? And if so, then why do we pass along links to our blog sites? OR do we blog for others? And if that's the case, again, I must pose the question.... Why?? I've not found a suitable answer other than maybe I blog for others because I'm infinitely interested in peoples interest and thoughts on .. well .. my thoughts I guess. And that brings forth yet another question.. Are bloggers self centered? I don't think I want to touch that one :)

Today's Thankful Thoughts:
  • Forever and always, my fiance, the love of my life
  • Friday afternoons
  • Soft baby yarn
  • Clear, cold drinking water
  • The love of God

Thankful Every Day (con't)

It's been a long day and my head is still aching even though I've downed enough Advil to knock out a horse. Wedding planning is taking up most of my thoughts and how to pay for it is taking up the rest. I'm crocheting like crazy trying to make enough things to sell at up coming craft fairs but I feel like I'll never have enough. How true is that statement, never enough. Never enough time, space, love, friends, just never enough.

Here are todays thankful thoughts ( and don't forget to leave a comment w/ things you are thankful for) :

  • As always, forever, the love of my life, my fiance
  • Free crochet patterns
  • Hot coffee made "just" right
  • Going home at 5pm

Thankful Every Day (con't)

It's chilly, but the sun is out and if you stand in just the right spot it almost feels like summer again. Ok, maybe I'm delusional but that's what I like to think. Makes me smile.

Other things that make me smile today and that I'm thankful for are :
  • The love of my life
  • Close friends
  • Jokes that make me laugh 'till I cry
  • Warm clothes

Thankful Every Day

I found this idea on a msg board I belong to and I think it's a wonderful idea so I've decided to incorporate it into my blogging :) Please feel free to comment with your daily thanksgivings :)

Today I'm thankful for (in no particular order):

  • The love of my life, my fiance
  • A warm, soft nest of kittens
  • Warm sunshine on my skin

Me.. who am I?

Isn't that the eternal question for us all. Who are we? Why are we here? What are we meant to do with our lives? Now, before you get excited.. I DON'T have the answers to any of those question, but I am deeply interested and intensely seeking those answers.

The easy stuff I can do. I'm a mom of 2 wonderful children who, although going through teen years, still call me "mommy". I have 2 cats and a dog which make me laugh and scream almost all at the same time and a wonderful fiance who IS the love of my life. The wedding is planned for Feb. 21, 2009 and I must say, I can't wait!

I love to write, crochet, sing, read and just hang out at home with my family or chill on a Saturday with my best friend. I love going to Church on Sunday evenings and feel refreshed and ready to face another week.
