Today is my one year bloggaversary. I have found that keeping this blog has helped immensely in my writing and also is a good account of all that I have to be grateful for: Health, a roof over my head, time with my husband, people we care for, the smell of air, enjoying a good meal, a refreshing drink of water, finding a flower I never knew existed before, meeting a new neighborhood dog, or cat. My blog reminds me not to take things for granted. It is a place for me to be me. An account of what I have done, seen, and hope to do. A place where I can rant and plan freely. A haven to escape to and hopefully an online community where I have learned from others. And hopefully share a bit of what I have to offer. It is a memory chest where I can go back and remember fondly a particular moment in time. It is a place where I learn about myself.
