For awhile I've been contemplating a name change... a long while, actually.
You see, while this fun little 'ole blog is definitely about my family ~ the Stanfords ~ it is more than that.
For me, it is an outlet of sorts. A place to air my thoughts and emotions. A place to scrapbook the memories that I never want to forget. A place to meet new friends and keep track of the old. A place to dream and a place to learn....
I could go on.
The name change is simple and basic. It just seems to so capture what I want to be everyday, by the grace of God. It is this:
A thankful mom. I'm sure it may seem too basic to some.
To me, though, it seems exactly right. And, on the days when it doesn't, I want to be reminded that it is just that... exactly right. That I am in exactly the right place in the ministry that the Lord has blessed me with.
The mission and ministry of being a Stay-At-Home-Mommy. A Homemaker. A Domestic Engineer.
So.... please change my address in whatever system you're using, because I don't want to lose you, friends!
You guys have been such an amazing part of this blogging experience. YOU are who I so look forward to connecting with and hearing from. YOU are who I learn from and consult with. YOUR blogs are the ones that keep me laughing and give me creative outlets and ideas about life and mommyhood.
Please, PLEASE stay with me, friends, as I adjust this space wee little old space into thethankfulmom.com
