Does my blog make you think my life is a bed of roses? It is not.
Does it seem that my life is problem-free? It is not.
Does it seem as if my family is one big happy family? Unfortunately, it is not.
We have our problems. Some of them even of our own creation. Of course, we contend with the difficulties that life throws at everyone ~ finances, sickness, and the unanticipated complications that crop up now and then.
And, of course, with a big family, and the many different personalities in this family, well, there's a lot of squabbling that goes on. And sometimes the internal strife is intense, and it's always sad when there is a break in family ties.
You would think from reading my blog that we are a 'picture perfect' family. I assure you, we are not. We have our share of troubles just as other families do. But in my blogging I choose to highlight only the good and only the positive. I'm not trying to pull the wool over anyone's eyes, and I'm not trying to make us out to be something we are not. My blog is sort of my scrapbook, and my journal, and I choose to put only the best and the brightest moments in it. And that is what I hope to remember all my life, despite the reality of the fact that things are not always what they seem.
