Re-Adjusting My Sails

So a few weeks ago, a couple of friends of mine suggested that I start a blog. There are a couple ladies that we follow online and apparently they think that I would be just as good at this as them and have something worthwhile to say. lol

I have been thinking about it ever since and when I saw this quote today on Facebook, I knew that would be my inspiration:

"She stood in the storm and when the wind did not blow her away, she adjusted her sails." - Elizabeth Edwards

I just love that quote and it was exactly what I was looking for.  How profound! Elizabeth Edwards was an amazing lady and I only hope that I can live by her example.

So, anyway, I don't know if I can live up to my buddies' expectations but I am going to give it a go. Not sure of a direction or a subject or a set of rules for the blog at this point, so I am just going to wing it. 

If you are here and reading, welcome! I hope to chronicle everyday life as a middle-aged single mom who is struggling to raise her kids, work a full time job, keep the faith and lose some weight in the process. LOL As with the other blogs that my friends and I read, maybe somewhere and someday it will help inspire some lovely lady to either keep on doing what she's doing or to make a change for the better. 

I can't promise to always be PC. I can't promise that I won't pull any punches or tell it like it is. This is MY story and you will either like it or you won't. I hope that you read and if you like it, subscribe and/or leave a comment. I am looking forward to sharing a little piece of me with you and to hearing back from you in the process.

Thanks for stopping by.
