I’ve been trying to give this blog a “make-over”. I just updated the about page by adding:
“My favorite part of writing this blog Chickadee is the ability to honestly share my thoughts and experiences with others. Writing is deemed as a gift. It can be the gift that expresses the way thousands others have felt but not been able to express or suppressed sharing. By sharing we can provide support and comfort to others who may be going through a similar experience where we felt so alone, or sad or solitary. This sharing can help inspire, support and love those who need it most. Sharing can also help us to carry on with grace, dignity and love. Writing can also help us laugh. Oh dear, how we all need to laugh more often.
Regardless of where you are in your journey of life and encouraging others, I hope this blog and these sharing experiences help you. I also hope that if you disagree, you share that too. Respectfully written differing perspectives help us all see the world and others in a different way. I hope these truthful experiences of mine, help you in your journey of life. I hope these writings help you in your relationship with yourself, your spouse, your children, your neighbors and everyone you encounter. I hope I inspire you to encourage, love, be vulnerable, to build up, to fearlessly share your truths and to spread goodness on to others. I hope this blog helps us all to laugh and cry with each other. May we all be “Chickadees” spreading these truths and helping ourselves and others during our journeys of life.
Carry on Chickadees!”
You’ll have to tell me what you think. What is the purpose of writing and reading blogs? What do you hope to gain from reading these types of blogs?
Right now we are traveling for Thanksgiving. My husband who is driving thinks the traffic is unbearable. I was half joking that the traffic was great, all kids are locked in their car seats and I’m not cleaning up messes, and we even get to stop for dinner which means zero prep and cleanup work for us.
We plan travel times when our toddler naps. When our toddler woke up and started fussing, I crawled in the middle back seat and sang an assortment of nursery/ toddler songs, read books, contorted my face into many different expressions, counted toes, etc until C started fussing and crying again. Then we quickly pulled over to have dinner. When you’ve ran out of tricks to calm a young toddler it’s time to stop and take a break.
We’ve now made it home to see family. Good luck to you all traveling with children.
I hope you all are having a Happy Thanksgiving Eve. Picture of my oldest reading to us at bedtime.
