Building a website can be a frustrating process. Dare I say even exceptionally frustrating when, like me, you know nothing about how to build a website or exactly what a "host" is (no, not like a waiter or the owner of the home in which you are attending a party). What do you do, though? You keep going and huff and puff as many times as you need to in order to get through it. You don't give up on the vision in your mind. You tell your brother you'll help shovel snow as soon as you figure out what you're doing wrong and finally get your website published. And then you cry. You cry like you just stubbed your pinky toe on the corner of an insanely large concrete structure and you even make that really ugly cry face. You hug your mom and brother and your two daughters and you call your aunt because you're just so proud of where you're headed. You jump up and down and scream like there's a mouse on your foot because you're excited for this new chapter in your life. Then, you get dressed and go buy toilet paper because yeah, that's important.
So, if your vision is a website or a painting or a song or a book or sitting quietly with a cup of coffee in your pajamas or having a pony, you don't stop until you can grab your vision. Don't stop until you get your toilet paper.

Working a full time job, raising two daughters, attempting to have a social life, trying to make my family proud, and trying to make myself proud are things I do every day. I'm now beginning my journey of giving. This is step one.
