This post is to welcome my mom to my blog. I imagine you'll have a lot of reading to do, now that you've discovered it!
You may be wondering why I never told you of this blog I keep. I started it originally to sort through my feelings about my discovery that the Mormon church isn't true, and then quickly I realized how enjoyable I find writing (something which may shock you, considering how much help from you I needed when writing papers in high school) and how it enables me to go back and touch on memories and feelings I don't often look at. In the beginning I thought it may be wise to keep the knowledge of this blog from my parents, in case I ever felt a need to rant or reminisce about painful subjects from childhood.
But, actually, I find I'm very glad you know of it finally. And you'll see that I haven't actually ranted or said anything bad about you thus far in this blog. This may be because I love you dearly, and find you one of my biggest blessings in this life.
You are the woman who kept me sane through childhood. You have continually given me acceptance, love, support, and understanding throughout my life. I love you with all my heart. You are a beautiful woman, and a pleasure to be with, and I look forward to interacting with you here. I can't wait to introduce you to all my blog friends!
Don't forget to look at the comments people left when you read my archived posts...some will be from the siblings and are hilariously funny. I hope you will feel free to leave comments too. (A lot of my comments got switched to "anonymous" when I switched to Blogger Beta, so unfortunately you won't know who some of my comments came from....)
Anyway, a big, warm welcome to Mom from SML. I love you!
PS ~ if you become an addict to blogging like I am, don't blame me.
PPS ~ I asked the siblings to keep quiet about my blog, so don't be mad at them, OK?
