My mom loved to write. 🙂
She taught me at a young age the importance of expressing yourself and being confident with your viewpoint. Over the years, writing would become one of the many things we shared.
I actually can’t remember a time when I didn’t keep a journal. Both my mom and I found comfort in reading and putting down words we sometimes didn’t want to say aloud but, still had the need to release.
While sorting through and packing up my mom’s things after her death, I came across one of her journals. There is something profoundly personal about seeing a person’s thoughts, hopes, fears, dreams written in their own handwriting.
I can’t bring myself to finish reading it. A mixture of sadness and the need for her to have more to tell me always keeps me from finishing it. I’m not sure if I will ever want to finish it.
So, once our daughter, GeorgiaPeach (GP) was born the thought of her perhaps wanting to ‘hear’ from me when I’m gone prompted me to start this blog. Now, don’t get it twisted, this site not be all about life lessons and serious stuff. I’m still learning myself (and about myself). Besides, I watch too much reality TV for serious thought all the time.
I like to write, my mom liked to write so maybe GP will enjoy what we have said in written form one day. Right now, the only ‘written word’ that interests her is Pout-Pout Fish!
Now that I am in my rookie season of being a Wife and a Mother, I hope my viewpoint is one GP will respect as she matures. Obviously as a toddler, she doesn’t care about any viewpoint right now, she just wants to play outside, chase the dog and dance.
At any rate, she will know her Mommy had something to say…even if it was about a tv show. 😉
Oh and I also quickly realized there were a bazillion things I had ZERO knowledge of, so I found myself saying…”Seriously, I didn’t know!” a lot. 🙂
