Dear diary...

Sep 17, 2010

What good is a blog that can not be used to bare your soul?  I have never been a journal your emotions type of girl, in my teenage years I started a new diary over 20 times, each lasting no longer than a couple of days, and when I look back on those days it is apparent I was writing for the "cool" factor and not to cultivate my voice.  I want this blog to be another diary, a diary of real time.  I want to be able to shed tears on the keyboard as I put into words the joy of life, smile when I write about our family and friends, and feel fear when I remember the day Chris and I became parents. 

I want these emotions to be real, I want them to span the passing of time.  I want to come back to each post and be immediately transported to that moment, each tear, each smile, each fear.  I want to experience life right now but create something for my future generations to look on and see parts of me, parts of us.  The trials, the hurt, the pain, the sadness, the laughter, the growth, and the constant, steadfast love.
