Yep, It's a Blog Hop. Join the Fun!

I know I'm supposed to like blogging, (everybody's doing it, right?) but this stuff just makes me nervous.  Writing a book~no problemo. In fact, call me crazy, but that's the fun part.

In fact, I've realized that this last year particularly, I focused on the negative elements in my life rather than focusing on all of my many, many blessings.

I am sooooo done with that.
