⚡️Encouraging Thunder Award⚡️

imageThank you so much to A Mommas View for bestowing the Encouraging Thunder Award to me!

It sounds so powerful and fierce! Two attributes I’m not normally associated with. I might be more like an encouraging rainstorm, sending out my slow but steady drips of prose hoping to resonate with someone.

It makes me feel both humble and a bit more capable.  A Mommas View knows what she talking about, so thanks again for encouraging me!!!

I got started blogging for a number of reasons.  Most of them are selfish.

1. I wanted  a distraction from some personal issues going on at the time.

2. I wanted to use it as a chronicle of my thoughts to help me remember myself when I no longer can.

3. I hoped to entertain other’s by entertaining myself.

4. I wanted to prove to myself that I could.

5. I was going in a diet and giving up chocolate so I needed something else to do beside eat!
