Let's Get This Party Started......

Well where to begin, I am new to blogging, however I have always been faithful in keeping a journal. It has been suggested by numerous friends that I should get out there and start blogging. I mean I have no problem getting together with the girls for coffee or endless hours on the telephone just talking about life, family, and anything else that seems to fall in between. So why not, I'll give it a shot.

As it goes it's Friday night and I promised myself I would write my first blog before the weekend. Well not sure that I really made my first goal. I guess I could say my weekend starts Saturday, then of course I just squeaked in under the wire.

I am embarking on a new journey, rediscovering myself. Recently divorced, raising two teenage boys, I have realized the importance of using my gifts and talents that God has given me. As much as I have enjoyed the last 8 years being a stay-at-home mom, it's time to get out there and contribute more to my community. In the last couple years I've gotten my feet wet working with a nonprofit organization. I liked it, a lot. It has been very rewarding for me. So I have decided to go a step further from volunteering my time to joining the board of directors of a different nonprofit organization in my community. I am super excited about this new adventure.

As I close, my mind is already reeling of ideas of future blogs. Here is a positive quote to think about.....

"Dreams pass into the reality of action. From the actions stems the dream again; and this interdependence produces the highest form of living..."
~Anais Nin

Good nite All!

  16. I quit a long newspaper reporting career and found myself with a lot of time on my hands. The result? A good feeling giving my talent and time to well-deserved non-profit groups. It is a good journey to take and takes us out of ourselves and our concerns for a few moments.
