I became a blogger because...

Why I Blog

I started my blog on a whim back in October 2008.
Not much going on in my life back then. 
I was a wife, mother and grandma.
My sons were away from home.
I saw my grand kids often.
I worked full time at a retirement home and for the most part loved my job.
Things were pretty much okay.
I liked doing memes.
I shared quotes and books and other piddly little things that were going on in my life.
I didn't really have a plan for anything special with this blog.
And then in December  2009 my life changed forever.
And now this is a good place to keep track of what is going on in our lives.
A record of sorts.
A place to vent.
A place to whine.
A place to come and share with whomever wants to drop in and read about the life of a granny who is raising two grand kids and caring for a sick, dying husband.
I can laugh here.
I can cry here.
I can share.

And I have met some pretty amazing people who come to share my stories.
I have found my voice in blogging.
And I Love it!
