The Ultimate Blog Party Is Here!
Hello Dear Readers! Welcome to my little corner of the blogosphere and Happy Ultimate Blog Party to you. Glad you've made it. For those of you who've found me via 5 Minutes For Mom, it's probably been a long ride. Thanks for clicking on over.
Let me tell you a little about myself. My name is Jubilee. I am a mid-thirties military wife and stay at home mom of three bright, energetic children who keep me on my toes and perpetually worn out. But in a good way. (I am inexplicably compelled to say in a good way. Mother angst or something like that. It's mostly true. On most days. Mostly. I think.)
I am relatively new to blogging and still learning my way around. And having a ton of fun doing it. In fact most days I have to pry myself away from the computer to do laundry and dishes and to get to bed at a decent time. I'll let you know when all three of those things happen on the same day! It doesn't look promising. I'm just sayin'.
The purpose of my blog is four-fold. 1. To keep myself focused on the joy that can be found in any situation while I am waiting for the Lord to take me home. (It's not as maudlin as it sounds!) 2. To keep a record of our family life (my memory is as short as I am) 3. To have a place to share what goes on in the Jubilant household with family, friends, regular readers (thank you!) and anyone else that happens by. 4. To keep the creative juices flowing while I discover my voice for that future novel stewing around in my brain. (I once had a professor emphatically proclaim that "Anyone with half a mind to write a book usually does." It's a statement that haunts me to this day and I am determined to prove him wrong at least when it comes to me! Wish me luck? Maybe Godspeed is more helpful and appropriate!)
You can find out more things about me in way more detail than you ever thought possible in my recent 100 and Counting post by clicking here. I'll also have my Labels category up for a while so you can click on any of those for a more in depth look by category. I don't usually have it up so that I can have other things on my side bar. Also, as a point of interest (perhaps) scroll on down to the bottom of the site so you can see the count down ticker and titles of my last five posts. They don't fit on my sidebar and tend to get overlooked. You can click on either of them to be taken to web sites to create your own ticker and animated header. They are fun additions.
So click around here and don't be a stranger -- visit often. Leave a comment and I'll be sure to visit your site. If you're a non blogger and leave a comment, I'd still like to greet you personally. If you feel comfortable, leave your email and I can say "hi" that way. Otherwise I'll respond in the comments section. It's up to you.
