I would say posting a blog ranks in the top 10 scariest things I have ever done in my life. But...here goes! There are three reasons I feel it's worth the risk.
First, surprisingly, it's kind of therapeutic. I enjoy writing.
Second, I hope it will keep our customers/friends/family up to date.
Third and most important, in my life I would say that the #1 thing that has helped me in tough times was when I talked to or listened to someone who I could relate to. I have had many wonderful friends who have shown empathy, love and support which I am so grateful for. But, when someone can relate it brings peace that you are not alone. I guess that is why the Savior is perfect at being our Savior. I believe that He knows perfectly how I feel because He literally felt my experiences. So, in my opinion those who comforted me by being vulnerable in sharing their experiences were being a type of savior. And so, I hope that by sharing I can do the same. I hope someone out there has just a little better day because maybe they could relate in some small way.
And so since this is my blog, I guess I am going to take the liberty of being me. My daughter is a drama major but she definetly didn't get her acting skills from me. I have no pretense and I'm not afraid to say what I believe. Don't get me wrong, I have no intent to offend but to just be honest.
I am a Woman full of Faith that Struggles to be faithful. My greatest desire is to be a Disciple of Christ but sometimes I am Less Than a Saint. I am a Wife to Justin Hoping to create an eternal marriage but sometimes we drive each other Crazy. I am a Mother that is Trying to be a great mother to 5 children, 2 step children, a daughter-in-law, a son-in-law and 4 grandchildren but sometimes I Runs Out of patience. I know the heartache of Divorce and the struggle to Try Again. I am a Hard Worker and also love to curl up on a cold day and Read. My constant battle in life is to keep things Clean and Organized. I have struggled with my Weight and I like to Run. I love to Rodeo with my kids and my passion is Cow Cutting. Most Days I Love the Ranch/Farm and some days I Hate it (mostly during blizzards when I am trying to feed the cows hay and I get more in my mouth than they do). Unfortunately for the reader, I have a dry sense of Humor. And lastly, I would say two words that describe me most are Truth Seeker and Love.
To put it bluntly, I believe in God, Womanhood, Wifehood, Motherhood and Ranching. If any of those things offend you I hope you will kindly find someone else's experiences to lift you. Otherwise, I hope something here will brighten your day...
