The other day, Grace wrote about posting every day this year. That has been my goal for several years but somehow I always fall a little short.

So you see I have come close. And why do I make an effort to post that often? Aren't I just putting undo pressure on myself? No, I don't think I am. I think I'm challenging myself to think of something worth sharing. Granted the something I share isn't always real interesting. I'll be the first to admit that some of my posts have been pretty lame. But they force me to think. They force me to use the part of my brain that would otherwise turn to mush staring at a tv.
Grace is going to try and post something thoughtful. I don't plan on aiming that high. I'm just going to try and put something out there even if it's just a post that says I can't think of anything today, I'll try harder tomorrow.
Maybe I'll even create a happy memory or two along the way.
