Too honest?

The downer tone of my last few entries has me pondering this blog. What is it's purpose? Is it too negative. Is it too revealing about the nature of life in a house like mine?

This blog isn't a traditional journal, although it possesses elements of a journal. It features journal-like entries, but importantly, it's public. It invites readers to participate in the day-to-day workings of a family with special-needs children. Journals seem inherently private, in my definition.

I'd be lying if I didn't acknowledge the therapeutic aspect of writing about my family. It's an inexpensive and wonderful form of release. So there's that, too.

I guess my primary purpose in writing is this:

To tell the truth.


  1. Don't over think it. Just write. Even if you just write for me! If someone doesn't like it they can stop reading :) You are fantastic!
