 Today is my very first post on my very first blog.
My original purpose was a desire to connect with other women who have lost their younger brothers in death.  During the process of creating this blog, I realized that I can connect with people who share many common interests, not just in the loss of a younger brother.  I am a woman who loves sharing stories of inspiration and recovery.  I am excited to connect with others and share my passion for children, nature, growth in God's word and all the excitement that tomorrow brings.


  1. Welcome to the world of Bloggyland. You have so much to share and I can't wait for all my blogger sistahs to be your blogger sistahs too. Many of them already practically know you! Love you, Yo Momma

  2. Welcome to this wonderful world. You will find much more than a few common interests here. There are so many wonderful people and they welcome you with open arms. I started to blog because my life long friend encouraged ,me. Then I started meeting people like your mom. Oh My Goodness! She is like my own sister and I have two! One has gone on to Heaven (cancer) and the other lives about 100 miles from me but your mom is a darling friend. I knew her before your family's tragic loss and I am amazed at her courage daily. She is very special to me and I am going to love getting to know you as well. God Bless You and enjoy this journey! Hugs Anne

  3. So happy to meet you. Hopefully we can share our love of the Lord and family. I know your loss has been great, but the Lord is so faithful to give us the sunshine again. Hugs, Marty

  4. I was so excited when your mom said you were going to start blogging. I just know you'll find many wonderful friends here in Blogland. Can't wait to hear what your big news is!

  5. Hi Shari, you will love blogland, and what a joy to be a part of the beginning of your blogging journey. I know your sweet Mama (through her blog) :) and met your brother Buddy the other day through his blog. I want to tell you personally how sorry I am for your loss. I know your heart is still raw from Jake's death. May God continue to comfort you and heal all of your hearts.

    May your blog be a blessing to you dear Shari!

  13. Welcome Dear Shari, don't have to tell you how I feel about Miz. M. that is what I call her. You will find much along the way to comfort, console and amuse you in this special and spiritual blog world. You will even find things to laugh at. Woo Hoo. Know your story as far as sweet Jake and will always be here as long as He is willing. Blessings

  15. Welcome to Blogsville, Shari! I'm looking forward to getting to know you, the dear daughter of a dear friend.

    I hope your experience here will be rewarding, and fulfilling, and a comfort. I think back, especially, to the months when we hoped and prayed for the life of our little grandson, and how the support of my blogging friends comforted me during those times. It was amazing and wonderful, to find so many hearts connecting, from all over the world. I hope it's like that here, for you.

    Love already,

  16. Welcome to the blogging world. It helps to talk freely about the feeling you have had from a loss.

  17. Hi Honey, so glad you joined your mamma in the blogging world. Talk/share/laugh/cry about everything and God will use it to help you and others.

    I got to be buddies with your mamma from a blog swap. I adore her and know I'll enjoy you too.
