Welcome to my blog. I know what your thinking "what the heck are rambling thoughts of a southern lady." The answer to that is you'll know when I know! Just kidding. I am a southern lady, American by Birth, Southern by the Grace of God, proudly born and raised in the great state of Mississippi and a proud Mississippi State fan.
The rambling thoughts part comes from my ability to ramble on about nothing at all or things that don't mean a hill of beans to anyone but me.
I've been thinking about started a blog for several months because I do have a tendency to have lots to say and secretly I've always wanted to be a writer. You know an Erma Bombeck type or maybe even Anita Renfroe (guess the secrets out!) I put it on my list of goals for 2010 and then decided that it would be real easy to accomplish at least one of my goals! No need to work up a "glisten" if you don't have to to mark something off your list! For you Yankees, we southern ladies don't sweat, we glisten.
While this blog will be mostly fun and games, I have two serious goals for it. (There I go setting goals again.) My first goal is that anything that is put on this blog will glorify God and my savior Jesus Christ. I believe the prophecy is being fulfilled every day and that it won't be long before I have a healthy body again.
My second goal is to educate those who read it on the chronic pain diseases that I have - Fibromyalgia, Chronic Fatigue and Rheumatoid Arthritis. I hope to help you understand that just because those of us who suffer with these diseases don't look sick, doesn't mean we aren't. We work really hard at not looking sick but usually don't succeed.
I also want to share recipes, craft ideas, my success (and failures) at learning to sew well and to quilt. Of course, I will also bore you with the mundane things in my life that you could not care less about. Speaking about mundane things - have you ever realized that most of us say that we "could care less" which indicates that we care at least a little bit. Since it was pointed out to me that we should say "couldn't care less", I've tried to remember to be sure I let people know exactly how I feel. Speaking of letting people know exactly how I feel, I can be very opinionated. Bill stop laughing! Bill is my wonderful husband who if he reads this will be laughing so hard that he won't be able to say what he's thinking - no kidding!
Speaking of my wonderful husband. He likes to eat when he comes home from work so I better get on in the kitchen and get something started. We southern ladies know our way around a kitchen and like to keep our men well fed.
Till next time,
