My attempt to find balance with the sweets, and the sours, of life.

The very best thing about blogging is the opportunity it provides to meet new people, people you would never ever have the opportunity to meet otherwise.
It never stops being a thrill to me to think that I have had conversations with people on the other side of this planet as well as people just down the road, all of whom I would have never otherwise met.
One of the most intense, concentrated, focused, and fun ways to meet new bloggers is to participate in Blogtoberfest. Anyone can join in. All you have to do is go to TinnieGirl's blog and add your link. By submitting your link, you agree to post a new post each and every day in October (or the days that remain in October -- you can join late). Then, you also do your best to visit as many participant's as possible.
“Years ago my mother used to say to me, she'd say, ‘In this world, Elwood, you must be...’ - she always called me Elwood - ‘...in this world, Elwood, you must be oh so smart or oh so pleasant.’ Well, for years I was smart. I recommend pleasant. You may quote me.”~Elwood P. Dowd in Harvey
I am a stay-at-home mom who is coming to grips with the fact that my children are growing up, and that is bitter sweet. I have several pets who understand me including a couple dogs, some beautiful pigeons (yes, pigeons), some chickens who boss me around, and a mourning dove who I believe is God's little whisper to me from heaven. I was a lawyer before I got really serious and became a mom. I love to knit, write, cook, and to take good care of my family. We struggle with my daughter's Reactive Attachment Disorder, and hold hands very tightly sometimes while we withstand the high tide of her challenges. Through it all, I am blessed to have a husband who is the corner piece to my puzzle.
