It is actually the most stressful thing in the world, deciding the first sentence of the first blog you have ever created in your life. As the pressure mounts, your mind whirls with topics and phrases that are intended to capture your audience and set the stage for future entries. After you’ve driven yourself almost to the point of insanity, it hits you like a sledge hammer, the first sentence shouldn’t be the most important thing. What happens and transpires within you, as you write, is the most important thing.
So, now that the tension has melted and I can simply share, I need you to know that I am so excited to begin this journey. Grief after the loss of my precious mother on January 28, 2018 is what pushed me to the decision to write. Not to mention, I have always loved journaling, I OWN the gift of gab and have ALWAYS loved to say things for the shock value…so here we are.
To let you know a little about me, I’ll share some of the things that I love, enjoy and of which, can’t seem to get enough. I love worshiping Jesus by serving with the praise team at our church. My mama taught me the love of music and singing and I intend to carry out that life until God says it’s enough. My next love is my family; nothing better than time spent with the folks I call mine. My favorite place on this earth and where I can hear “me” best is a good ol’, white sanded beach where the waves crash out every distraction; leaving only thoughts that are my own. I have many other loves, but these are a great beginning and will have to be enough for now.
Maybe there’s more to learn; maybe we can do that together. We’ll take this journey together and maybe, just maybe, it will all be worth it and become a little more clear as we share a…..cup of Coffee with Paula! (See what I did there? Ha!)
I’ll let you know every time there’s a fresh pot! ~paula
