204 posts, if you count this short one.
It makes a small book. Just right for reading in a few sittings.
The Forever Mother proved to me that I was indeed a writer, and for that, I am immensely happy, because that is truly who I am. A few years back, when I started writing this blog, I wanted to make sure that my children would see this side of their mama. A little glimpse of me in my early 40s... a time they are likely not to remember, but will one day be themselves. I would like them to see my perspective on certain things, my beliefs, a few of my struggles and how I've grown in courage. And, if I'm honest, there is a vain little part of me that wants to be "immortal" in the sense of not soon forgotten: I think that years from now, even my great-great grandchildren will enjoy reading this version of a "journal", so yes, it'll be printed in some form of "self-publishing" for my family's sake, in case Google/Blogger ever decide that it needs to be "deleted" from the ever expansive universe that is call "the internet".
But, like all good things, it is time to say, "Farewell."
Thank you for being on this journey with me.
1. Be you
2. Be brave
3. God is love
4. You are loved

PS: and a great Ted Talk would be Brene Brown's lecture on Vulnerability:
And a quote that I found, yet never got around to writing a post about...
"I travel not to go anywhere, but to go.
I travel for travel's sake.
The great affair is to move."
