Hello, Holidailies.

Some time ago, I went back to the beginning.  I skimmed/read over my entire blog from 2005 to the present.  As I sit here trying to think of an introduction, I have to wonder just how do I come across here in blog land?  Do these pages really depict the real me?  I noticed many posts about sick kids.  Again and again... they were sick, then I was sick. Lots of posts about crying kids.  Many about a cranky Veronica.  Happy posts.  Sad posts.  Funny posts.  Angry posts.  And grief... the never ending grief.

I can only assume that I come across screaming, "Things are messy around here because I'M A MOM!!"   Even so, that is just a small piece of the puzzle.

I think about the thousands of people who have come and gone through these blog pages, leaving little cyber foot prints.  Some of you have stayed, some have not.  Some return sporadically.  Some lingered over my every word for hours. Some left quickly.  Over time, the tone of this blog has changed.  My family has changed.  I have changed.

Isn't that what life is like though?   People come and go.  The ones that are true - stay.  Things change, grow, and shape you into the person you are today.

So, a big hello to Holidailies 2012 and thanks for taking a few minutes to know me.  Welcome to a little piece of the puzzle called my life.

  1. Hi! Your little into on Holidailies grabbed me as I too have been on and off the blogosphere since 2005, so I had to come visit. Who knows how we appear to others but I too recognise that passage of people and "friends". Sure our families develop and change but in the end I think what we are left with is our love or desire to write, don't you think?

    Happy Holidailies!
