This blog is a place for me to vent my views and provides me a way to release my thoughts in an organized fashion. It just so happens you all can also read my thoughts. About me? I’m a klutz, I’m a Jesus follower, and I’m a Midwestern country girl who’s in love with her friends, family and free coffee.
More than anything, I am a student. Some would call me smart, more would call me average, all would say I like to learn. I consider every day a learning experience, every adversity a chance to grow, and every person a textbook to observe and study. Everyone has a story to tell. Life isn’t just about getting your voice out to be heard. You don’t have an opinion unless you have a repertoire to extract your opinion on. Most of the time, you just gotta shut up and listen.
Listening is what I like to do best. This blog helps me vent about my thoughts and opinions, yes, but it is just a place for me to leak the results of the times when I listen.
So because I like to listen, I am very eager for you to leave me comments. I like to be challenged in my beliefs; so talk to me. Challenge me. Ask me questions. Rant and write, write and rant. I’ll listen, formulate, then tell you what I think.
Life is a learning experience. When we finally graduate, we’ll have the greatest open house reception ever, with the Professor and Author as Host.
