10 Years of Blogging

I started this blog on September 28, 2005. A blog was something I had been thinking about for a while, but I was encouraged to do it by an older gentleman that I went to graduate school with who I encountered at an alumni gathering. I owe him a cosmic debt of gratitude for pushing me to begin.

My life has gone in directions I couldn't even have imagined 10 years ago. At age 30, my older two boys were 4 and almost 3. I was homeschooling preschool but had pretty much made the decision to send my oldest to traditional school for Kindergarten. I'm now in my 8th year of homeschooling and even that journey has turned out much different than I pictured it would. 10 years ago, I knew nothing about Aspergers or working with the Department of Children and Families, or being a foster parent, or adoption. There is a reason why God lets you only see one day at a time!

Yet, as my life has unfolded in ways both wonderful and challenging, I've been thankful for this outlet.  A quarter of my life has gone by while I've been sharing my thoughts and book reviews with those of you who have stopped by these pages.

Thank you to those of you who have shared the journey with me, whether you have read many posts or just one. I hope that you have found something of value in these posts and I hope you'll keep traveling the journey with me in the future.

Thank you, Patrice, for taking the time to blog so faithfully. I have your posts cming into my inbox and most of the time, they are one of the few things in my email that I take the time to read. I always enjoy and appreciate them. Looking forward to continuing. :)
