After much internal mental debate, a little prodding from a friend or two and encouragement from a family member to get in touch with everyone more often than say, once a year :), I am beginning a journey into communication via just one of the abundant possiblities available to do so. Hmmmm, a blog. Not something I would have ever thought would become a part of my life. And yet, here I am. And, maybe, there you are, reading my thoughts. I hope that, in the very least, the elusive Smith family will be not quite so elusive any longer.
