The reason I blog. I had someone question what I do. That's okay, everyone is entitled to their opinion. It doesn't change my reasons. (Sticks and stones, and all that.) I started this blog for two reasons. One was that I thought I would become famous and more importantly, rich. Funny, huh? I do have advertising on here, thanks to the wonderful BlogHer community. The money I've earned from that wouldn't fill my car with gas, not even one time. That's all right. I've put that idea aside. The fact is, the second reason for this blog has become the main reason-- to write.
I'm a writer.
It took me a long time to be able to say that. I felt like I needed some kind of publishing contract to give myself that label. Not so. I've been a writer my whole life. It's always been a part of me. It is one of the things that makes me happy. And, as I've had this blog, my writing has improved. I write almost daily. It isn't always pretty, but it is always an effort. Stretching my mental muscles and strengthening the gift that God gave me.
I also have another reason. You. I don't even know all my readers, which is kind of cool. You give me a reason to keep doing this. It gives me hope that what I do is worthwhile. It validates me.
Now, for a few other reasons for things.
The reason I spend time with Daniel-the-Eliptical?
-30 pounds down.
-I'm wearing jeans that have been in the back of my closet for 2 years.
-Tho' I hate the time we're together, I always feel better after.
The reason I get up in the morning?
The reason I put on a swimsuit on Friday?
To spend time with these people--
|Ellie the Little Mermaid|
|Mitch- that looks like a scary slide!|
What? It's in the kiddie pool?
|Aww. Cute boy, even with his war wound.|
|Yes, Brinn, |
bells do sound better when you ring with your mouth.
|Grandma and her girls.|

|Fun and games.|
|Wow, Grandpa, you're good!|
|Do we make adorable babies, or what?|
|That's my boy!|

The reason for it all?
