A Beginning...

I'm starting. I've started. There.
It's been almost a week since I opened an account... and almost a year since I opened one the first time, and posted my first blog entry - but that's disappeared into blogland because I left it for so long.
I don't know why I can't/couldn't just take the first step. Until now.
I didn't wait till everything was perfect, as I would have liked to - as a mummy of three, things are rarely perfect! I haven't even made myself a cup of tea.
I walked in from a morning playdate, to our morning mess.
And here I am, sitting amidst it all: breakfast dishes, toys, a chattering two-year-old (showing me a slater bug she is making a home for in a breakfast bowl, eek) and a to-do list a mile long.
But I have made a start. Begun. This is the beginning.
Can't be much different to keeping a journal?
Although, I'm sure it's much less romantic than holding a favourite pen, and a dogeared notebook, flicking through scribbled-on pages filled with prayers and poetry...

Scrawled in liquid chalk on my very 70's glass kitchen cupboards is this:

"When dreams come true there is life and joy!" Proverbs 13:12

Seems fitting.
So it is the beginning.
For now, that is all. Hello.
