How do?

"How do?" "I'm finer than a frog hair and fitter than a fiddle!" That is an actual exchange I have heard more than one time in my family. My father would be the one giving the clever answer. I have now borrowed it from him. And now you know the story behind the name of my online journal. It is a good name, I think. Today is my birthday and seems a good day to start down this new path in my life. To be specific, this is my “second” twenty first birthday. I guess that means I’m coming of age yet again. I think I have discovered a lot the last two times through, but there is always more to learn and I am eager to get to it. I’m feeling pretty fine today myself. I’d like to use this space as a wide open gratitude journal. I am thankful for so many things. So many people. So many talents. Yes talents! We are taught from a young age not to be boastful – to the point of putting ourselves in a place where we are not allowed to show appreciation for our gifts. I would like to start taking some ownership. Hopefully, if you are taking the time to read this, you will support me in this endeavor. I’m certain that I will stray into the self deprecating humor area (it is just too easy and fun), but I will always try first to be positive. I hope to share many things with you, not the least of which will be some handmade artwork. I hope you enjoy it and that it will inspire you to create something of your own. The world we live in could not be more exquisite. I marvel at the Creator’s majesty on a daily basis. I will share some of the beauty I find with you here. Hopefully what you see will make you want to look for these things as well. With luck, they will make you feel finer than a frog hair too. Welcome and Enjoy!

You are going to be a natural at this, I can feel it in my bones :) I hope you have fun with this and I am grateful to you for sharing a bit more of yourself with me and everyone else who stops buy.
