|after our first theater experience!|
Seven years ago, (honestly) I was quite nervous to post my first blog. What would people think of me? Was I drawing too much attention to myself? I did not want to be a blogger who just expressed her opinion and vent them on to everyone else.
Also am an over achiever and I did not want to fill my plate with one more thing. I don't like to fail. I can be too dedicated at times. Then.. what about my grammar? :/ yikes. I am going to really expose myself.
I took the family journal approach. I wanted to glorify God with whatever words I typed. I am sure I have failed. Over the years I have shared some really raw moments: birth, death, homeschool fall out, public school, moves...Moments when I was mad at God, moments when I elated with His provisions! There were times when I thought I was done blogging. I have met new friends and found that people just like to read about our family. Maybe someday we can own TV show? ;)

If you choose to blog, you have to be patient with yourself. Don't worry if there are months between posts or if you post something every day.
If I am going to blog about anything; I want to always be thankful and see ALL of God's blessings in my life. Hence the name: The Buckout's Blessings
Cheers to 500 more?!
Well..the messy bed, crying baby, dirty kitchen, and perhaps a little makeup first!
At least I had a tootsie roll and coffee. ;)
