Almost Eight Years in the Making... Finally!

The Boy will be eight-years-old in May. And for almost eight years, I have been thinking about this blog. Something happens, and I think, "This would be a great blog post". Sometimes I record the idea in a voice memo. Other times, I jot it down in a notebook. (Not a specific notebook, but any notebook I can find.) Others I've sat at the computer and typed out an actual post-able entry. But the blog did not exist... until today. Welcome to Destiny Laughed.
Destiny Laughed is a lyric from the song Wonder by Natalie Merchant. I would describe it myself, but Natalie does a better job herself in the clip that can be seen here.

Over the next week or so I will be updating the pages to tell you more about The Boy and The Family. I'll also tell you about myself, Lynne, The Mama. Even without the introductions, I'm sure you will get to know us along the way.

Destiny Laughed about my journey in becoming the person I never thought I would be. It's about my struggles to accept what is, and let go of what I thought would be. It's about growth. It's about fear. It's about love. It's real. At times it will be funny, after all, Laughed is part of the title. At other times it will be raw. No matter what emotions surround each post, I can promise you they are honest reactions to the life I have. I don't expect you to always have the same reaction. I don't expect your sympathy. And I especially don't expect you to always understand. What I do expect is your kindness. Your support. Your respect. I am writing this as much for me as I am for you. If you relate, let me know. If you disagree, please do so respectfully.

Thank you for visiting. I look forward to sharing more with you soon.
