This blog was created with the intent of keeping you in touch with our family. I am a secondary school teacher and an adjunct history instructor. The last 25 plus years of my life have been shared with my husband Randal. He works for an Electric Coop. We have one daughter, who graduated from Tech this year. We are amazed daily at how God works in our lives.

God Calling on the Cell Phone

Well I have done it! I am now officially a “blogger”. I have joined the multitudes who “blog”. Actually, I started a blog about a year ago. It lasted 1 day. At the time, I really thought with my other computer related jobs (technology saturated classroom teacher and online college history teacher) – it would be too much to add to a boat that was already full and close to top sizing. But, with the move, many friends have encouraged me to start it again so they can keep up with our family. I also realize it will be a great way for our family to keep connected and share our lives. So here I am and I am ready to start blogging.

By the way…..what does “blog” mean? How did someone come up with the word “blog”? Why should I care what it means and where it came from? But if you know me, you know I care, because I am an inquiring mind. And, this mind wants to know!

I am sure, if my family is reading this, they are rolling their eyes about now. They always do when circumstances like this arise. Okay! I will not bore you. But, for the record I did look it up and I do know the history of “blogging”. But, I will keep it to myself this time.

A piece of technology I thought I would never become addicted to is my cell phone. I am notoriously known to either have it not charged, turned off, turned down or not in my presence. But, with this move, I have become extremely attached and BF’s with my cool silver flip phone. I never dreamed I would be the type of person, who would check to see if I had missed a call or a text every 15 minutes or so, but I am now that kind of a person. (In fact, I just checked it as I was writing that last sentence). I am now enormously dependent on it for several reasons.

1. My entire family now lives in another town from me….and I want to be able to talk to them if they need me for some reason. 2. My next teaching job, will start from a phone call, which I will receive on my cell phone 3. The selling of our house will start with a phone call from our realtor on my cell phone.

As you can see a lot of our life depends on a phone call, which will arrive on my cell phone. Our life is kind of in a weird place right now. We have a lot of ??????’s. But, we know God will make it all come together in His perfect timing and will. It takes patience….which is another blog for later. Well, time to check my cell phone again, to see if God is calling about our life plans.

News from the Family and Friends:
  • Nicole is getting married Saturday, April 4.
  • Uncle Mike has been re-diagnosed, but they are finally glad to know what he has and how to start treating him. He is doing well.
  • Pa (Dan Wood) found out that his shortness of breath and etc. is probably caused by too high of a dose of blood pressure medicine, will continue to monitor meds. to see if symptoms improve.


Love ya,

Kelly
