And so it begins...

I was introduced to blogs by a family member. For a long time I enjoyed her blog alone. Then I began venturing over to blogs she enjoys, other family and friends. From there I linked to others and so on and so forth. Now I can say, I am officially hooked on this thing called blogging. I never thought a blog would work for me. I am not a good writer and I am an over-editor (if there is such a word). I have been known to write and re-write to the point where I lose the importance of what I was trying to say and then I just delete all of it. I have been challenged by my dear friend, the Amazing Racer, to just put my thoughts to paper here. I will spell check them for you. But aside from that, I will do very little editing. I apologize in advance if this results in haphazard posts and poorly written thoughts. But, I think it is an important part of my process. As in writing, I tend to over-analyze my thoughts and conversations. I have been known to avoid important conversations all together because I feel as though I can't find the perfect way to say it. So, here I am to begin a journey of faith. Faith that the Lord will honor this huge stretch for me. Faith that if you think my posts are a mess and poorly written that you will keep it to yourself. Thank you for indulging me.
(Side-note: I must confess I did re-read this and began re-writing. Like I's a process)

Now, onto my introduction. I (Captain Mom) am a Daughter of the King (Jesus), Husband to a hero (Major Hunk), Mom to an amazing little girl (Corporal Cutie) and friends with an incredible bunch (the Freak Show). Here I intend to chronicle this crazy thing called life.
