Well, as you can see...I've been doing a little (cleaning) on my page! I am hoping to make it a little more welcoming as well as pretty! I also changed it from Jerelene's Blog to Jerelene's Journal. I thought maybe that it sounded a little better. I am always in awe at how great other peoples pages are. I am trying to learn as much as I can. This blogging thing isn't as easy as it seems it would be. I sometimes get a little discouraged, but one of my reasons for doing this was that I thought it would be somewhat therapeutic for me. The last year has been a rough one for me and I am hoping it helps to be able to write things down. Friendship was also a big motivator. When I first started homeschooling I went to the computer for advice and encouragement. So many of the homeschooling Moms (and Christian Moms) who blog made a huge impact on me. Spiritually as well as motivationally. They are just awesome people. I hope that they know that they really do hold the opportunity of changing someone's life (literally) in their hands :) It really made a difference in my life and I'm very sure in others' lives as well. I appreciate so much, that they take the time to open up their lives , homes, and hearts to others. To all of my blogging Mommy friends...I appreciate you so much!!!
