The purpose of the Chalifour Family blog was always to focus on the good moments in our lives. When I sat down at my computer (usually at night) I would say to myself "what good thing happened today?" That is a great thing. It causes a person to appreciate the little things in life and remember that among all of the chaos and "living" those little moments are important. I explained this in a post once called "Why I blog".
It is important to me that I keep on the same path with the Chalifour blog because, now more than ever, we need to appreciate those moments. However, I cannot deny the sadness, pain and confusion that is going on right now. To leave it out of the blog makes me feel like I am not being truthful. To put it in makes me feel like the blog is taking a new direction, which I don't want.
So I have created this blog. I understand that people are concerned about me and I appreciate that. I don't want to close people off when they ask me "how are you" and I don't have the heart to know where to begin, or wonder if they really want to know the answer. So you can find out here. If you want to. And if you don't, then you can keep checking on the kids on the Chalifour Family blog.
