Back In Business!

Finally my computer is fixed!!!!  (Que the singing angels)  I am now back in business and ready to start blogging again! 

I have missed sooooo much.  I looked in on a few of the bloggs I have been missing and WOW did I miss alot.  Some even have new looks and and all.  I was gone for over 2 months, and have been going mad every second of each day.  I actually broke down one day.  I lay on the floor crying because I didn't know what was wrong with this computer and I didn't have any more money to sink into it, much less buy a new one.

I worried myself sick many times.  I tried to put it all in God's hands, but you all know how easy it is to leave there.  Finally I just had to admit that I couldn't do anything about it, and don't you know that was the moment I felt the calmness come over me.  He was telling me all along to let Him deal with it, and finally I listened.  Sometimes I feel like I do so much asking of Him, and very little is asked of me.  I am so selfish.  I want it all.  I want a happy life with a loving family.  I don't want to struggle and never want to be sick.  I want all the blessings I can get, and so far I have gotten almost all of them.  Yet, I still want more.  Lucky for me, He understands!

The time I was out of the Internet world has been great, now that I look back on it.  I got to do so much more with out thinking about what I was going to post later on.  I got caught up on my crocheting (pictures will be up soon).  I read more books and watched more tv, but the best thing was that we had more family time. 

The down side was that I was not able to pull up info when I needed it, and I had to use public computers to check all my accounts.  I also missed all my bloggy buddies.  Being a stay at home mom is hard when you don't get even a quick computer break to talk to someone who isn't 4 years old. 

All in all, I needed this little break.  I have a renewed sense of what I want my blog to be like and what I want from my blog.  I feel like I was getting away from my original material that described my life and was going down the road of "Mommy Blogger".  I don't want to be seen that way.  I don't want to be labeled a "Mommy Blogger".  There isn't anything wrong with being a "Mommy Blogger", but there are just so many of them.  All I want to be me.  I want to be a blogger who describes her lifestyle and culture with her family by her side.  I want to share my feelings as a person other than Will's Mom.  That's who I am.  I am a person with many different titles, not just Mom.  That's what I want others to see here.  I want people to come back and read my blog because it's interesting.  I will still do a few giveaways and a few reviews, but I will keep them to a minimum.  I want to share my joy over the things going on in my life more.  I love my life and feel blessed beyond belief. 

So, welcome back to my blog
