I want to say something profound on this the first day of 2008. Something dramatic that will bring a tear to everyone's eyes. That will bring cheers and applause ....and accolades to me, the writer.
But alas ... the only thing I can come up with is
There, I said it. Profound. That's about as profound as I can get.
It could be because it's 4 am and I've yet to fall asleep ... and I'm desperately trying to beat what is my best posting, and probably will remain my best posting ... Swamp plant and Cactus ... Whenever my goal becomes to beat it ... I usually fail miserably ...
I was inspired that day. Filled with adoration for my sons ... and admiration for what they'd accomplished and I was even feeling a sense of pride in how I'd been able to deal with parenting these two very different children. Add those three elements together at one moment in time ...and what you get ... is .. a blog entry that ..well ... becomes THE blog entry.
I had another blog entry that I really liked. It was a story, but I removed it. I'm not going to talk about the why's or wherefores ...but it was out of respect, for the other person involved.
As I sit here and contemplate ... I realize there are other posts about my step dad that are special ...and ones about worship songs ... the Darling of Heaven crucified ...
Surely, there must be, in me, or what is the purpose of continuing to blog? (this is not a farewell)
I have recieved a few emails of late, from blog surfers, who say that they've found me doing searches on lupus, or myasthenia gravis ... and MG & particular drugs I really ...really should blog about that ... I tend to avoid those as I feel like then I'm asking for sympathy that I'm not asking for. I guess, I could preface it with a 'this is for educational purposes' ... or just turn off comments ... couldn't I .. wow. duh. But I will save all that for another day.
So ...for 2008 .. I will be be profound ...simply by saying ...
