Gary and I don't watch many sitcoms, but we do like "New Adventures of Old Christine." I fell in love with Julia Louis Dreyfus during her days on "Seinfeld." Christine is no Elaine, but she certainly is funny and Julia is a great physical actress. It is a good escape from real life and it is fun to tune in to see what new adventures she will encounter this week.
When I started this blog back in 2006 I wasn't quite sure where it would go. I have to say that I am pleased to have kept up with it for almost four years! There have been times when it has been more active and times when it has been less active. But I don't think it has ever been inactive. I've enjoyed recording the varied adventures of Gary and I ~ a minister and a librarian making a life together along with our two dogs and cat.
This blog has been pretty much a 'catch-all.' At different times I've reflected on ministry, family life, friendship, books, pet ownership, step-parenthood, Schutzhund training, and living with PTSD. I've shared the joy of welcoming Bady into my life as my Support Dog and the bumps we've had along the way in developing our working partnership. I've shared pieces of my journey with God as a follower of Christ. And I am proud to be able to say that I think I have been pretty honest here.
I suppose today's reflection comes about because recently I've been thinking about changing this blog or even ending it and starting something new. But I don't think I will. I like that this blog reflects my various interests and activities as well as my struggles and my joys. I also like that it is a testimony to how I have grown and changed over the years. I don't think that my readership has grown all that much since the beginning, but that is fine with me. In fact I've written this blog mostly for myself. If there are others who find joy in reading it, that is an additional blessing.
The truth is, this blog is not perfect and neither am I! Perhaps that's what I like best about it. So let the adventures continue! I'll do my best to share them here :>)
