My blog has been a journal. It has been a way to connect with family and friends through distance and time. It has been a creative outlet and a sounding board. It has been a place where I go to smile, remember fondly, dream of the future, and think positively. I know things happen, trials and doldrums, sadness, disasters, stress... but I would be so happy to know that this little dot on the matrix filled somebody's cup a little higher.
