So Starts the Next Chapter

I have never been good at keeping a journal. Considering how much I love to talk that might be a shock to anyone that knows me. I decided that so many people write blogs now a days that Iwould give it a shot and see if I could keep to doing this regularly.

I decided to call my Blog Sandi-Chapter 2 based on where I am in my life right now. I love to read and whenever I do I always savor the first chapter. I love that it is the set up for the entire book. It is the time when you get to know the characters and a lot of the time you get the back story. My Chapter 1 is very similar to a lot of others. I grew up in a happy home with two wonderful parents and a brother. I went to school, fell in love, got married, bought a house, worked, and had a child. For some people that could be a whole book and the story would end something like "and they lived happily ever after." I certainly thought that is how my story would go.

But now, here I am, I am facing a divorce and looking ahead to a very uncertain future. I have no idea what is in store for me and to be completly honest it is the first time in my life where I don't really have a plan. My only desire is to move forward. To take care of myself and my beautiful daughter Caitlin. To live my life based on the teachings of Jesus Chirst and to strive every day to be the best person that I can be. I hope that I can be kind and loving, that I can serve others, and that I can be happy. Facing an uncertain future can be really scary. It is especially scary for someone that usually maps out every aspect of her life. But I have decided that it is time to exercise a little faith and see what happens. I hope to be able to use this blog to share this next chapter of my life. Chapter 2. I hope it ends up being the best story ever.
