The beginning...

Many have asked for this. (Why? I still don't have a clue to the answer on that. I guess either some of you find me humorous or interesting. My husband would say I'm just simply crazy. LOL!) I had said I would do this for all of you over at Scrap Etc. Especially V.;) Give me time to work out all the bells/whistles and kinks. Please be patient.

Some of you who do not know me personally, need to beware. I am very strong in my beliefs and feelings. I am very respectful of individuals and their views but at the same time expect the same in return. This blog will be my thoughts and feelings. Please keep that in mind when you post a comment. If you don't like what I have to say, simply don't read my blog. Period. Skip over it.

With that being said, I will tell you a little about my beliefs and feelings which will give you insight on what you may find here. First of all, I am a Christian. I love God. He has been the one constant in my life. He has never let me down. If I have stumbled and fallen, He is the one who has been there to pick me up. Whether it be through an angel he put into my life or a new direction for me to take. Because of his loyalty and belief in me, I will not leave him. I would like to learn more of other religions, for I truly feel there is some type of connection to some. There are too many similarities to be ignored.

Secondly, I am a mother. God blessed my life with two beautiful gifts. I truly beleive they are my purpose in life. Therefore it is my responsiblity to teach them the love that God has shown me and to help them find His purpose for their lives.

Thirdly, I am a military wife. I have very strong opinions about certain issues. Some of you may disagree with me on several topics. Keep in mind these are my thoughts and feelings expresed here. If you can enlighten me and others, by all means go ahead. In doing so, however I will reiterate, keep in mind these are my thought and feelings.

And last but not least, I am a keeper of memories. Scrapbooking is a passion. I got to stamping through scrapbooking. It all started almost 6yrs. ago and has been a wonderful journey since. I have made many wonderful friendships through the art. Scrapbookers are a different breed of character, but are so caring for one another due to the common bond they share.

Happy New Year to all! Hope 2007 turns out to be the best that it can be for you and yours.
