Why in the world would I want to add blogging to my plate now???

***Alert: This was originally posted on my beta tested blog at jadeintheparke.wordpress.com on 7/14/11***
Welcome to our family's blog. As this is my first time blogging, I stand humbled by the task.
How to write personal, humorous stories without embarrassing my children? How to share our struggles, triumphs, experiences and life while preserving privacy?  I am compelled...Compelled by those amazing bloggers who have gone before me and have enriched our lives whether decorating, saving moolah, living with Arthrogryposis, keeping up with their family's activities or educating their familia, sharing a good book or three & their struggles. 
What? Struggles encouraging? You betcha! As it has been* said, "God whispers in our triumphs and shouts in our pain"  There is a blessing seeing someone leaning on the One who is able to carry their burdens and give them Rest. Let us be honest speaking the truth in love, shall we?
And let us see where this blog goes.
Will you join me?
*Okay, I totally twisted that one. Here is the quote, "God whispers to us in our pleasures, speaks to us in our conscience, but shouts in our pains: It is His megaphone to rouse a deaf world" C.S. Lewis.
