About Me

Growing up my initials were OP, which was pretty cool in the 80's, right? Then I got married and my initials got updated to match our very texting obsessed era that we now live in (and shake our heads at)...OMG. For those who are texting illiterate, I'll spell it out..."Oh, My God!". I pity the girl whose initials are W.T.F. (I won't spell that one out. You can Google it or email me for an explaination on that one!)


Over 40....

That's how many blogs I follow. Don't judge me.
It's not like I always read every single word of every single one.

Just sometimes.

I don't know if what I'm doing is overboard. I have no one to compare myself to, to find out where I stand in the scale of normacly in the blog world. And I'd almost rather not know. A person can be proud of owning and reading "too many books" but... reading too many magazines or too many blogs? Prob not.

Anyway, that's not the point I came to make.

What I wanted to say is that I have decided to make a point of commenting on YOUR blogs when I read them. I have read so many blogs that have really made me really think or have opened my eyes to the tragedies and triumphs going on in the lives of my "sister's" out there. They have no idea how I carry their words with me after I've intersected with their blog on this world wide web super-highway.

The joy and pain people are carrying around with them, wow. And I am given the opportunity to peek into their lives for a moment...this should not go unappreciated. So, I have decided to make a point of commenting more. I know how if feels to receive a word of praise or smile from a "sister" via a comment on my blog. It's part of the reason we do this, isn't it? I mean, let's be honest. If I wanted a medium where no one knew and no one but myself cared, I'd keep my private journal. Alas, I believe we love to connect, to share, to receive. I just want y'all out there to know I'm paying attention and appreciating the life you are sharing.

I love to post pictures but I can't think of one that goes with this entry. Racking my brain....
Since I mentioned sisters in this post...here's one of me and my sister that I think is pretty cute.
