To Blog or not to Blog...

To blog or not to blog…that seems to be the question these days! Some say it’s crazy and even dangerous to be so open and frank about one’s life in the cyber world. Others seem to think it’s therapeutic. Me, well I’m not sure yet, I’ll let you know!

However, to answer the question…. YES, today I will blog! How does one start a blog, well I think I just did. I have been married 21+years to a man, who I have known since he was 13, he is now 41. I know everything about him, and I know nothing about him…it just depends on the day:)! I have 3 wonderful children, who have stretched me far more outside of my womb then they EVER did while inside. I am sure you will come to know them all…that is, if this blog thing sticks. You see I have a tendency to start something with full force and participation, much like a turtle trying to cross a road…but then something usually happens that makes me pull my head inside my shell and I wait until it’s safe to try again.

My goal has been perfection most of my life, in fact I can’t remember ever NOT trying to be the perfect daughter, friend, wife, and mother. At 43, I have yet to reach my goal and I am so very tired and worn out from trying. For those that “think” they know me they would tell you otherwise because I hide the fact that I’m not “perfect “very well, or at least I think I do. After all I’ve been practicing for 30 years or so. So much time, energy and tears wasted because you see, there is no such thing as the Perfect woman or Superwoman for that matter. In fact there is only Wonder-woman and Cat-woman and believe me it took a long time to figure that one out!!!

So after a lot of heartache, thinking and talking with my dad (my heavenly one), I have decided that I just want to be me, the one HE intended me to be…and so a new journey begins. If you choose to go along with me, good, I need the company. If you’re looking for perfection in my writing, in my life or in my story, trust me you will not find it here, because “here”…. I plan on just being me!


  1. I'm so glad you've finally come to blog world! I know you are going to love it and I just know that you are going to be a blessing to all who read! I love you my sweet bff!!!

  2. I wish we could sit down with a cup of coffee, my testimony is release (daily!) from the bondage of perfectionism. My Savior has been so good and gentle with me even as He has pried my finger loose from so many things I hoped to control. I look forward to reading your story!

  3. Thank you Ginger and maybe one day we can have that cup of coffee...:)

  4. HI Stephannee! Thanks so much for visiting my blog to say hi! I must say that yours is pretty nice too! I really love the background. I am also fairly new to this blogging community and I absolutely LOVE it. Writing has been such a wonderful way for me to get all of my crazy obsessive thoughts out of my head, and then to read that so many others are struggling with the same crazy thoughts! Its wonderful and I am so grateful :) I do hope that you keep writing and find the same release and sanity here that I have found.
