Come On In………..Pull Up a Chair!

April 14, 2010 BON 23

Welcome to my little corner of blogland.   Now if I were really welcoming you into my home, I’d great you with a comfy place to sit, coffee, tea, or a drink of your choice.   I’d probably have a warm coffee cake or some cookies to offer you…………now doesn’t that feel nice?
I am so excited that Pam and Sandy from Words of Wisdom have chosen me as the BON or Blogger of Note today.   If you’re not familiar with WOW(acronyms abound on this blog), let me tell you about it.  WOW is all about finding and sharing blogs with great content.  Blogs that make you think.   Now many of you might be wondering how the heck I was chosen, but I’ve been assured it’s not about serious Pulitzer worthy material, but about writing that makes others think, or laugh, or just want to jump in and chat.

I’m suppose to tell you a little about myself.   I’m a recently turned 50 year old woman, living in the Sunshine state of Florida and trying my best to keep up with my family, near and far.  My blog title really says it all, I’m many things.  I guess first I’m a daughter to my aging parents, but alas they are 1000 miles away, I’m thankful for siblings that help and keep me informed.   I’m also a wife of almost 20 years to a man I’d describe as my real soul mate, my heart still skips a beat when he smiles at me, and I love every minute we have together.  I’m a mom to three…………and trust me, parenting can provide much blog fodder, much of it just a place to vent, or brag, or laugh about!   I’m currently contemplating a return to working outside my home, as we’ll have two going off to college in another year……..yikes that sounds scary!
So I’m now linking you to 3 posts that I think represent me, or my writing………………I hope you enjoy!

Harsh Realities, Life is Short  a tragedy that occurred in our local area…………breaks my heart.

Odd Things a Boy Does  just a small glimpse into life with a 12 year old son……..he is a hoot!


My Parents the people who loved me and gave me life, and who they are now. 

This was really hard……..I looked through 318 posts and choosing just 3 isn’t easy.  I’m not sure these are the ones that say the most, but I wanted to find some that showed you different aspects of me.  
So look around, I always feel like a stalker on a new blog…..poking around and digging for information. 
Thank you again to Pam and Sandy for creating such a wonderful place for us to share!

    Happy Bon Day! I get to be your first commenter because my three year old wet her bed and the trauma that ensued in getting her back to sleep has me wide awake at 2:00am! I did feel a slight yawn coming on but then I started to read your blog… now I could be up all night!

    Thanks for making it all so inviting!!
    I’m following you now!

    Happy BoN Day!

    You have a lovely blog. Can’t wait to stalk you…er…I mean, have a little look around!

    Congrats on being today’s BON! You are obviously a woman who appreciates her family. I love the story about your son. As someone with three little brothers, I know that boys (particularly teenagers) do some ridiculous things! Thanks for sharing your stories.

    Congrats! I’m trying to catch up, so I’m late for the party.

    One thing I have noticed about you is your great attitude about life-no matter what comes your way, you always look on the bright side. This is something I definitely need to work on. I think the sunflowers of your background is so you.

    🙂
