Why Blog?

I have always admired those who take time to offer thoughts and advice through blogging. And I have learned so much through their words and have often been encouraged. With three girls, working on the family dairy farm, a passion for youth ministry, I find it difficult to find something just for me. I have had a journal for all of my adult life, and find writing very therapeutic, so why not. I don't know if my words will have an impact on anyone, or teach anyone anything. But I will be satisfied knowing that I am taking some time out for me. This is my great escape.

I am sitting here on this Easter Monday, (sitting when I should be baking...Monday is bake day) and the girls are having a great time cutting paper and decorating Bracelets or "Blacewets" as Savannah calls them. They are laughing at each others creations. I love how they cut the bracelet and then they measure to see if it fits. It is no surprise that after cutting so much paper that the floor is now scattered with little bits of it...no worries. Savannah just hauls in the garbage can from the kitchen. "There we go, Lily" she says. Lily is encouraging Savannah the whole time, telling her to keep trying, asking her opinion on what she is doing. Oh....wait now...lights are being created.....and hats....and mini-hats....oh and skates. Of course all of these things are just little cut-ups of paper. They don't look anything like the real thing. I love their imaginations. I love holidays where the girls can play and have fun. I love how well they get along. I just love 'em!!!

Well I better get to my baking. Bread, chocolate chip cookies and molassas cookies are on the agenda today, with shepherds pie for lunch :) Have a blessed day everyone, and take time to enjoy the little things in life...like paper "Blacewets" :)
