The tag line of my blog… family, faith and how I keep on keepin’ on… seemed like a good idea when I started this blog in March of 2011.
Then, along came an early retirement and relocation to care for a family member with dementia. It’s been hard to do the “keepin’ on” part. Real hard. I let fear take hold of everything I write or say. My understanding of love and forgiveness has been challenged daily.
But I’m still here. Fear will not be my legacy. I’m keepin’ on.
Writing about family, the one I came from… the one my husband and I grew… the one that’s yet to be, is my joy. Sharing my faith, exploring God’s purpose for me, finding the simple beauty of everyday life, gives meaning to my days. And that is what I’ll continue to do here.
I’ve already shared a great deal about the character building years of life in Alaska. This post is a good place to start – 3rd in the series.
My 2012 series, 31 Days of Aging Grace, was meant to honor those who helped shape my life, explore the concept of aging gracefully (you’re never too young to learn that!), and to reflect on what is yet to be. In the end, it was just plain humbling for me to see the blessings of God’s grace. I hope you’ll check out the series.
I write about things I have done, like learning to SCUBA DIVE… packing my survival “bug out” kit while watching WAR OF THE WORLDS… and challenges with technology in AM I BRIGHT ENOUGH FOR A SMART PHONE??
I also write a lot about these good-looking guys, their families and adventures. If they weren’t already my sons I would want them for friends… just a whole lot of awesomeness there!
I appreciate every person who has clicked on this site. I hope you find something to encourage, or something that assures, or maybe something to make you laugh… but most of all I hope you see God’s love and grace shine through. Thanks for reading.
