Sixteen years, a long time and yet it has been an eye blink gone by. I wish I had been there for you as mine was for me. Not to be, at least not yet. Someday I hope you make the choice. I trust in God there is a plan and I have faith that somewhere, sometime the Plan He has for you and the Plan He has for me will intersect. I wish I could change things, free will allowed me to make the choices I made. I hope today was all you expected it to be. Never will I know what I could have known however my faith in Him is as strong as ever.
I have strayed so far from my blog over the past several years I am ashamed. I started this as a way for my family to keep up with us when we lived in South Dakota in the days before you could post photos. Back then you had to find a file hosting site and for the average common man it was such a pain. Now it seems Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, and several other social media sites have pushed blogger to the wayside. I still love this format, especially for me to record what I am thinking and feeling rather than as a way to share with others. Having said that I surely don't mind others reading what I recorded, otherwise I would just type it in notepad and keep it on my laptop. So going forward I am going to record more here. I am not sure why this seems to be important to me but it is and that is all that matters.
