What's in a name?

Well, as you can see, I renamed the blog. The old one was, well, lame, and I wanted a name that is clearer to the purpose. I started this blog because I realized that after years of toddler babble, I was getting out of practice in the art of communication. It came to a head when I realized that the thoughts in my head during moments of quiet were nonsensical rhyming songs, such as,
"Gracie is so cute and sweet,
I love her from her head to feet."

Not that there isn't a place for nonsensical songs, but I recognized that I was having trouble forming complete thoughts let alone sentences. Hence, a blog came to be.

I'm not delusional about my blog, although I am aspirational. I know that it probably isn't of much use to anyone other than myself and maybe a relative or two who want to keep up on the goings-on of myself and my clan. I do hope it will be of use as a tool of spiritual and mental growth for myself, and then hopefully others will be able to learn from my trials and errors.

So, that's it in a nutshell. May I be logical, rhetorical, and grammatically correct. May you and I be inspired, convicted, and maybe amused - but not necessarily in that order.

My goodness. I've been singing those nonsense songs for 14 years. I wonder what my brain looks like! :)

It's hard to come up with a good blog name. Most are already taken. But I think the other was fine, too.

Alright, alright, Norwester! I know a pity compliment when I see one - so, I will humble myself and admit that I have no skill at picking out a blog name. I'm taking suggestions if ya got some.

God bless!

No, now, really it wasn't. I just think of the way I felt when trying to come up with one. And screen names too-yiyiyi. Everything sounds cheesy to me.

I wish I had some witty thing to suggest.

Usually when I check out a blog by it's name I look for things that have to do with kids(Or being a mom), Reformed theology, homeschooling, or coffee. But usually I just link from other blogs I already read, really.

I'm sure it's just my own insecurities making me second guess, and third guess, and fourth guess... ! I'm what you call a buyers remorse kind of gal, I'm still rethinking #3's name :)

Ok, so my song for my daughter goes,
"Gracie Face, Gracie Face,
she is purdy as ribbons and lace!"


"Hey my little muffin-Grace,
you dun gotta purdy face!"

All in mushy baby talk. :)
