My Blog Inspiration

As a missionary in Taiwan, back in the days before email really took off, we lived for the mail. Unlike now, when the mailbox mostly holds ads and a few bills, back then pretty much all that we got were handwritten letters. News from back home, letters from my missionary (now my husband), and occasionally a package. Sometimes people you aren't as close with write a letter to let you know they are thinking of you. I remember sitting in our Kaoshiung apartment with Sister Gravell, reading our mail. Hers was from a young girl--a neighbor, I think. It was two pages long, back and front, about everything that was on her mind. After sharing all the interesting details of the games she had played and the food she had eaten, she wrote, "There's so much to talk about!" We had a good laugh about that.

But now, so many years later, I realize she was right all along. There are SO many things to talk about! I had a blog devoted to a love of mine- food and nutrition. But there are so many other things to talk about, that when I thought about blogging again, I didn't want to limit myself to just one topic. This is a blog of all the things I want to talk about. I hope you'll talk about them with me!
