Sharing



Sharing
sounds easy, right?

As a child, you may have heard your mom
saying "please share"-
share your toys
share your snack
share your room
share your clothes-
whatever it was, we have all heard it a lot.

Did you ever hear anyone tell you to share your secrets-
your inner most thoughts-
those are not easy things to share-

Blogging is a lot like that-
It's easy to share a craft project,
a new vignette in your home,
even a post of favorite things.

It's not easy to share the intimate details on your mind-
at least, not for me-
How personal should I be?
Will I be judged?
Will I get nasty comments?
All of these things race through my mind-

But, I have shared many things about my family-
the beautiful things
the sorrowful times, those are hardest for me-
My mom passed away last year and I am still dealing
with the many emotions that go with that loss.
I will never be the same as I once was but
my goal is to live each day to the fullest, savor the little things
and count all the blessings in my life, each and every day.

There have been many bumps in my road,
 hurdles to overcome,

sadness to deal with,

life's missteps
but
on this blog, my voice is
always honest-
It helps me to get my feelings out, (not too much, though, I'm Irish!)
I do not have a sharer's personality-
things are sometimes better felt than heard
but as I write on my blog,
my feelings are shared.
So, I share this with all of you-




Take care, gotta fly-
