A public blog doesn't tell the entire story. That's just the way it is. I've aways been guarded in what I've shared here. I know the same is true for my blogging friends. For instance, I never mention my daughter's name anymore. I know that occasionally she scans my blog for her name. I only call her 'my daughter' so I never get called out. Smart me. I try not to write about the hard times, but we all have them. I've certainly written about my mom through the years. That couldn't be avoided. Her stroke and the subsequent years have had a major affect on my life. Good old mom...I do love her dearly. I will say that all the positive stuff has been true. I was blessed to be born with a good attitude. The bad stuff, well, it happens to us all. It's what we do with it that counts. Look at me being all philosophical! I've never claimed to be overly deep. I am what I am and make no excuses. How I am has served me well over the years. I'm thankful for having a naive nature about esoteric matters. I'd rather be real and understood by the masses instead of the few. My mother's famous 'last words' have always been 'it's nice to be nice'. I wholeheartedly agree.
