I have just published my 50th post, and I want to thank you all for coming with me on this journey. When I started this blog, I wasn’t sure which direction to go other than that it needed to be about “Blooming Heather.”
When I was a girl, I hated my name. It sounds odd, but I thought that Heather was a name for only the very young and that it wouldn’t grow with me. Who had ever heard of a grandma named Heather? I thought it was a ridiculously short-sighted name. Yes, I know what you’re thinking, I was an odd child.
It wasn’t until my mother told me the meaning of my name that I embraced it. Heather, she explained, was a delicate flower that thrived in hostile terrain. Well, if that didn’t fit me, I don’t know what did. So, I embraced my name and when I imagined opening a home for troubled kids, I thought of naming it Heather’s House – Thriving in a Hostile Terrain. I didn’t end up opening that home – yet. But, I have started with this blog.
This blog is where I can bring you on a journey with me through the hostile terrain of life and bloom together with you, using my experiences to produce beauty.
Thank you for reading.
