With an abundance of hope and confidence everything is born. And so I remind myself, as I cautiously but eagerly open my eyes and begin this very fun and new adventure of blogging. I trust now, as I did waiting for the arrival of each of my children, that the right words will come when needed, the thoughts expressed will be clear, honest, and heartfelt; the ideas shared, relevant; and the interaction experienced, lively and courteous. Thank you for sharing this time, these thoughts and events, these ideas and revelations, with me. I am truly honored that you have chosen to do so.
