Entry for February 08, 2008 ~ I'm a What?!?

Well, here I am...thinking real hard.
Hmm-mm-m......and I'm wondering why, after all these years, my hidden love for writing has decided to rear its frightful head!
I have blogged about this before, but here I am, still blogging away ~ who would have thought, seeing as how I am late-50's now, that I still had so much to say!?
Like I said before, I am an Artist, not a Writer...so where does all this come from?
There are other, more talented writers in my family; I don't compare to anything they have put out, but I still try.
I guess after a life lived and lessons learned, I feel that somehow I have something to share with those who might not have had the same experiences I have had. I have certainly "been there, done that" and as far as I am concerned, I am still there, doing it.
When I finally breathe my last ~ God only knows when that will be ~ I hope to be able to look back and say to myself (and probably to everyone else, lol) that I made a difference in a few lives...that what I did and how I lived had an impact on other lives around me.
My dear husband is fond of telling me that he cannot imagine his own life without me ~ and believe me, the feeling is very much mutual! And he is also fond of telling me that I seem to have a knack for writing. But I have to say, it comes as a complete surprise to me.
To my way of thinking, I am just a person who likes to talk. I have thoughts in my head, hopefully for the better, and I try to express them, what ever they may be. If some poor reader comes along, having nothing better to do, and happens to read something that I have written, then I say, "Welcome to you, dear Reader ~ I do this for you."
And if, on the other hand, nobody ever reads a word I write, then I will simply put it in my own head, with a self-congratulatory smile and say to myself, "Congratulations, Jenn! You have succeeded in reaching nobody! How very productive of you..."
And then I will put down my virtual "pen and paper" here, meaning my trusty laptop, and turn off my Writer's Muse until the next time I get inspired to use a talent that I do not possess!

Mom,
That's great! And you think you're not a writer! That is great wit, and people read your blogs all the time! So, keep 'em comin'!
Love you lots,
Laura

Dearest ~ I love that you love it! ;)
I jot down a thought now and then...and whatever happens to it, then let it happen...my writing does not compare to yours or Theresa's or Clare's, but I have to say that I love trying to out-do you all, lol...I love your face, you know it makes me smile ~ Mom xo.
