Thanks to everyone who participated by leaving comments about what you would like to see highlighted on the Ella blog in the new year.

And a special thanks for sharing your thoughts on journaling. It seems that we all have a hard time getting our painful stories told. I have some, too, so I'll share with you this. My super smart college freshman son {Presidential Scholarship, Legacy Scholarship, Leadership Blount Scholarship, Hope Scholarship} is  doing some not so smart not studying, skipping classes, neglecting to turn in assignments...and it is so discouraging to see him throw away a wonderful opportunity. I will somehow turn this into a layout about my hopes and dreams for him, but I don't know yet how to do that.

Blessings to you all, my friends, may we all find a way to journal our stories in a way that matters.
