Wednesday's Walk: Joining the Fun

I love the idea of spending some time appreciating from whence I've come and how it has influenced where I am right now. Lynnette is one of my favorite bloggers. Please join her at Dancing Barefoot on Weathered Ground to read more and to participate in Wednesday's Walk.

I am up to my ears with the work of redesigning and moving Typing One-Handed to a new, multi-functional spot. My new magazine style will allow me to feature favorite blogs with RSS feed and links straight to the blogs. I am excited about it, but it is a learning-as-I-go project.

Thinking back on it, I realize that everything I do seems to come with on-the-job training. Becoming a wife (and discovering I wasn't the center of the universe), then a mother (is there any other job that so takes a person by surprise???), a college student (with a husband & three small children at home)...finally venturing into the work force with a computer tech degree. Many part-time and contract jobs because of the degree...finally deciding I like working from home best.

I've come full circle. I was writing from the time I learned how to properly use a pencil. Work now involves helping other women shine through their own writing via Take Root and my own endeavors to write and publish my first novel. Now I use a combination of keyboard and pencil (yep, all my manuscripts start out in spiral notebooks written with my fave mechanical pencil).

What a lovely walk down my lane full of memories! Hey, Orchid...did you notice your favorite outfit???

Hi I became a follower today and I will look forward to reading more about you and what you are up to with your writing.

I liked the pictures. Kids do grow up and pictures help to remind us of all of the special moments with them when they were little.

I like Psalm 34 that you have posted and I do like the reminder that those who love Him, fear Him, and seek Him, will lack nothing.

Indeed,..we should taste and see that the Lord is good!

Hop on over to my blog today if you get a chance.

Have a great day!
