Hi, I'm new in town

Do you ever want to introduce yourself but at the last minute you chicken out or you can't think of a darn thing to say? I hate that. I really started this blog a year ago, but I never posted anything. I guess I just couldn't figure out what to say. I guess I'm still shy, but I've been inspired.

Every day I read Oh, the Joys. I really enjoy Jessica's blog - she makes me laugh, she makes me cry, but mostly she makes me think. Sometimes about things that aren't all that important at all, and other times about things that make me want to be a better person.

I decided to start posting, to give my daughter some insights to who I am later in life. A friend of my mother's told her about a journal he writes in. Not every day, but when the mood strikes. It's intended for his children if anything ever happens to him, so they can learn about what kind of person their father is. I lost my father as a child and never got the chance to know him as an adult. A fact that has always made me feel sad and lonely. So this is for my daughter - so that if anything should happen to me, she won't have to feel the same sadness.
