Where there's a will, there's a way!

As many of you know it was my intent to begin blogging upon my arrival in Thailand as a way of keeping in touch because I knew myself well enough to be confident that my bad habit of failing to make it to the post office would follow me around the world. Well, that was a great plan; however, I found it impossible to break through the language barrier as every time I attempted to go to Blogspot.com, it would assume that since my computer was in Thailand, then I must speak Thai. Wrong! Just when I'd reached the end of my rope and was even questioning if there was anything in my life worthy of sharing, my dear friend Daphne came to the rescue. She tried researching different fixes and finally resorted to creating the blog herself back in the good ol' USA. After a bit more coaching, here I am in Bangkok typing away:) I feel victorious...kind of like that shout from a mountain top feeling. So what now? What is it that I write? Well, to start with I'm thinking of how thankful I am for friends and family like you who might be reading this. God knew that I would need you and it's no accident that you've blessed my life. It's impossible to know how many times have you've been God's voice here on earth offering kind words of encouragement, or His hands as you've hugged and helped lighten the load of life when it was just too much to bear alone. Thank you, thank you, thank you. Thank you for sharing in my life's journey and allowing me to share in yours.

Yes, I know I'm not you're 'Mama' but since my blogging is predominantly done with my kids, that's my name on here.

This is so exciting! I'd be interested to hear what finally worked. I assume the whole page is in English including instructions since you've masterfully added so much wonderful information. Who knew that I would actually ehlp someone else with technology!! I look forward to enjoying the adventure with you!

What great fun to see old friends on here! I am enjoying the comments as well as the blogs and pictures. I guess this is what attracts the kids to MySpace and Facebook?

I'm at www.icemama.blogspot.com and would love to hear from my dear old friends!

Hug Sam for me and I sure wish you could sneak some of those beautiful plants to me!

Love y'all (a little Texas for you!)
