Thanks so much for stopping by and leaving some comment love, it was fun chatting a little bit with you yesterday!
Today’s topic is to blog about my blog!
I started blogging over 4 years ago as a way to cope with the loss of Brenham. I quickly found lots of support and encouragement though other blogs and people who have been through similar losses. It became a way for me to share his story, I wanted people to know him, I wanted his short life to mean something in this world, because he means so much to me.
Over the years my blog has had lots of other purposes, it was a great way to keep people posted on my health and also a means to advocate for organ donation. I’ve had lots of readers commit to becoming an organ donor and that makes me so happy! I’ve loved being able to share my faith and testimony with people in a way that makes me WAY more comfortable than speaking in public. It’s been a journal of my boys’ adoption journeys and a place to record their milestones. It’s kinda you’re typical mommy-blog most times! Its really the only place I can permanently record my memories, I have a terrible memory and love to be able to read back about what we were doing at this time a few years ago and I know I will love that about my blog even more as time goes by! I’m hoping some day the boys will take interest in reading it. I want them to look back on this years from now and know how much I love them and wanted to record these memories for them.
There have been times where I’ve wanted to stop blogging (boy are there some rude comments that float by every once in awhile!) but I keep at it because ultimately I love it! I think a lot about how cool it would have been had my grandma (who is no longer living) kept a blog. I would love to be able to read her blog about what life was like raising kids in her era and what her day to day life would have been like. I would love to see her pictures of ‘what she wore Wednesday’ or my mom’s first day of school!
(So boys if you’re reading this some day, I hope you’re enjoying it and not laughing too hard, I promise our clothes and hair styles were stylish at the time, you just wait…it will come back! I love you so much and tried not to embarrass you too much!!)
