Free to be me

I made a post yesterday that offended some people in my family and hurt others feelings. In response to that I decided to make my blog private. Now I am coming to second guess that decision. I love blogging, it is very therapeutic for me. I blog to clarify things for myself, to record my thoughts, feelings and opinions and as a scrapbook of my family's life. This blog is all about me and in a life where so often things have to be about other people I need something to be all about me. Some people may think that is selfish and wrong but I feel that I have a right to have some small piece of the world be about me.

I love that there are people out there that I have never met that find my life interesting enough to read about it. I get a thrill that there are people that subscribe to my blog, there are even people in other countries that want to know about me, wow! You all make me feel so special even if you have never left a comment. Thank you! I feel that part of the special feeling that I get from blogging will be lost if I make my blog private. So I have decided to make my blog public again. I can't promise to not offend anyone, all I can say is that my thoughts, feelings and opinions ar mine and mine alone and I have the right to have them just as you have the right to disagree with me.
To those I have offended or hurt, that was not my intention and I love you all very much.


Here are the Haloween photos, Abbie was a lady bug (red onsie that I had, sticky back felt dots and a pair of red wings from Jo-Ann total cost $7) Alex was a cowboy (jeans he had, flannel shirt and hat from the thrift store, 2 sheriffs badges (he lost the 1st one at the trunk or treat), guns and holster from Walmart, boots on loan from a friend total cost $15). The kids actually got to wear their costumes twice, once the Friday before at the Trunk or Treat at the YMCA and the second time on Haloween when we took them around the block. This was the first year that Alex really got the idea of trick or treating so it was fun to watch him having fun.
