Today is the Five Year birthday / blog-iversary of Mormon Soprano.com!
It’s hard to believe it’s been five whole years since that fateful day I attempted to launch myself into the Bloggernacle on my ambitious quest to share with the world the joyful news of the restored Gospel of Jesus Christ…and my favorite music…and inspirational messages…and general ramblings about life. Things have certainly grown and morphed and changed over the years both in my virtual life, and in my personal life. I’ve done a lot of exploring. I’ve gotten older. My kids grew up and left the nest for college. I did too much running before I learned how to walk, resulting in bumps and bruises and crashed websites along the way, but despite it all, I survived and thrived. I’ve made lots of new BFFs, and I’ve enjoyed every minute being a small part of the great “Mormon Moment” blitz of the 21st Century.
As any typical five-year-old, I’m generally over-confident, precocious and head-strong. But, I can also be very cute, lovable and say the darnedest things!
Here’s a nice little poem for the day:
No longer the same little girl
or is she, the same, really?
An impish grin, cunning, negotiating
a better deal for herself, the sisters
in a moment she is the same; but
running to the school house,
out of our hands
serious about her learning
clever in the repartee we banter
give and take, or isn’t that such a good idea
negotiating with a five year old
who holds more of the cards
than we like to admit
but whose fooling who,
as if we had a clue
of that growing girl
with the attitude
who now is a big
