I hesitate to say that out loud (or in writing) since it means that I'm committing to something. And when I comes to blogging, I tend to be a little scattered. I have a hard time following through when I decide to do something regularly on my blog. I'm kind of like a bird who is distracted by shiny things.
Does anyone remember my commitment to be thankful? Yeah. That lasted for about a week. I was still thankful. I just kept forgetting to tell you about it.
In my first post of 2009, I pledged to spend some time this year sharing my thoughts on what it means to set the tone in my home and create a warm, welcoming and safe place for my family to rest. After all, it can't be completely about spray paint and new pillows, right?
So in an effort to be true to the name of my blog, I'll start a weekly series called Building a Soft Place to Land. And since today is Thursday, I guess Thursdays will be the day. There are a few topics bouncing around in my noggin right now. Of course, I always reserve the right to completely deviate from the planned topic should I become distracted by something shiny.
On the off chance that you think I've somehow got this all figured out and will deliver little sermons sharing my wisdom for creating the perfect home, think again. I don't think I've made it a secret that I don't have it all together. I'm still struggling to figure things out and doing the best that I can. Somedays I do better than others.
I really hope that this series will help me do a better job of creating the home that I want for my family. So please join me and let's make this a dialogue. I love to hear from you, my dear readers. I am constantly amazed at the thoughfulness and wisdom that can be found in my comments section. If there's enough interest, maybe we'll even do a Mr. Linky some weeks.
Next weeks topic: Building my foundation
