Hello Dear Readers –
I’m with my family right now in Arizona.
And well……….my family reads my blog. I wouldn’t mind if they didn’t. But they do, and it’s quite sweet (I’m just still amazed to have anyone read it. 🙂
I knew my Mom & Dad would be excited about the blog. They’re always so supportive of anything I do. But I thought some of my siblings might think I was crazy to be a blogger. My family isn’t always so warm and fuzzy. We tend to speak our minds and there’s usually lots of opinions in the mix on all things related to politics, business, religion, economics, education, etc. I figured having this blog could possibly be a source of ridicule (You’re doing WHAT full-time? For free? You’re sharing all that on-line when you could be working?)
But…..well……they love the blog.
One sister was talking about it and I said, “So what other blogs do you read?” I figured she’d be more in the know than me when it came to other blogs. She said, “Yours. Yours is the only blog I read. pshhh – I don’t have time to read anyone else’s blog.” I felt quite honored to think that my busy sister, who’s a mom of three, made time to read my blog.
And then, my brother, George, was excited to hear about our classes. He seemed very impressed that we were doing that. But he said, “You guys HAVE to provide something that’s recorded, for the people that can’t make it to the live class.” I know, guys. We will be working on that soon. Big brother is after me on that. I’m just thrilled he likes the idea.
And, my sister-in-law, Dominique – well, she’s one of my favorite fans. It really means a ton to have her support. Like some of my sisters, I thought it would be hard to win her over. But she’s crazy about the thing. She has a blog, too, and surprised me with this amazing post, “What My Husband’s Kid Sister Taught Me About Love.” I couldn’t believe it.
P.S. I’m being a terrible blogger. No pictures from my trip. Sorry about that!
