"A Simple Step"
When my children were young I would eagerly await that first "simple step". The step when no one is holding on to their little fingers and they begin to get their balance. The step that would make my heart flutter. It was the begining to my little baby turning into a toddler. It has been a few years now since my last one took his first step and as much as I miss those years I am glad he did it. Many days as I look into his eyes (as I wipe his sticky face once again) I wish I could go back to those days...and yet I remember all the joys I have had since he learned to walk.
Teaching a young one to walk is such a neat parallel to my journey to getting this blog going. I thought, "Oh such a wonderful idea!" so I jumped right in, lost my balance,and fell. It took many days/hours trying out my "balance". And many months looking for my footing. It may appear to you that my footing is nearly there...but I am still stumbling in this computer world.
It seems to have been months since I first thought of starting my own blog. I thought how wonderful it would be...untill I realize that it wasn't just one simple step. See I am not much of a computer bee I would rather journal in a book or scrapbook everything my children do. As I visit my friends and their blogs I realize how much of a blessing and encouragement they have been to me in the most crazy parts of my day.... I was inspried!!! Could God use me to help enoucrage others in their walk as a mother, women of God, and homeschool mom?

So here I am...the kids are playing quietly, for the moment at least, and I am trying my hardest to figure this all out. I have loads of pictures and tons of journal entrys to add I hope to add in the coming weeks...since this has been on my "to-do" since last spring I have been getting ready. I hope you will continue to visit my blog whenever you get a chance, and I pray that the God can use these entrys to bless you in a special way!

Simply Me!
