Maggie A. ‘Spoon (Also Known As: Supera Matris – See my page on what that means)

Hello!  I am the new Mrs. Rogers.  That is right.  Not MR. ROGERS — he is pushing up daisies and may he rest in peace.  No, I consider myself to be like a sort of Mrs. Rogers.  I would like to write in the style of Mr. Rogers.  That is honest, real, personal and, most importantly, compassionate.

Ever since I was young I have been writing stories and advice, sharing the wisdom I have learned through experience.  I have page after page in notebook after notebook filled with hand-written musings of my own.  I have been working on typing things up, which is a good thing.

I am using my talent of blogging because I desire:
..to be a beacon of light and bring hope to the world, using my talents and individuality that God blessed me with.
..to make a HUGE impact!
..that if life were a pool and I was a swimmer, my cannon ball would knock out much of the water (but not any of the people because that just wouldn’t be nice) because I make that much of an impact in at least one person’s life.

I also desire to ENCOURAGE the weak, bring HOPE to the weary, and strengthen the faithful toward continual growth.  To me, not only will God HELP me reach my goals, but He will also bless them and guide them so that I am most effective and reach the most people in the best way possible.  How could I accomplish such HUGE goals that are greater than myself without help from a being who is bigger than myself?  He knows all, understands all, and is capable of ANYTHING.  It just makes sense for ME to be a Christian.  Just my thoughts on the matter. ^_^

The purpose of this blog is to share my thoughts, feelings — especially my ups and downs — and how God is working in my life during all those moments, no matter how small and insignificant they seem to some people.  I’m excited to finally have some readers and hope you get something insightful out of my ramblings.  I also write so that someday when I am dead and gone there is something personal of me left behind, even if it is spread out.  I don’t think I’m any more special than anyone else but I do think I am special and unique and worth knowing, even after I am dead.  Aren’t we all?

Raised a country girl, I am now living in the suburbs of Dallas, TX.  I have lived in the area for over 5 years now which is the longest running time I have lived in any one location since I got married.  I am a wife and mother who lives each moment in life with all the passion I can muster.  (I like to call it GUSTO!)  After many life-altering experiences — and a few near-death ones — I truly value and cherish life and completely recognize the fragility of the human body.  It makes me want to tell everyone about how amazing God has been in my life and hope that they will listen.  But I digress.

I enjoy the multitude of activities God has thrown my way.  I have a wonderful husband who works hard as well as two beautiful children.  I love them all and I count myself blessed. My oldest daughter is now 11!!! years old and my not-so-little one is 9 years old.   My husband is my perfect match — not to be confused with just plain perfect — and as such you will probably hear very little about him (because there isn’t much to say when there is so little to complain about).  😉

I enjoy all things crafty — especially hand embroidery, crochet, sewing clothes and doll making, painting and drawing and, above all, writing.  I LOVE to write anything — poetry, short stories, novels, tidbits.  I am hoping to someday publish one of the many, many books I have started but never finished.  That’s the problem though — I never seem to get around to finishing things.  That’s why blogging is so great for me.  I can finish a blog and post it! (Well, sometimes…)

I admit to not being the best at grammar.  Though my mother was an English teacher and she did teach me how to speak proper English, I never quite mastered the art of writing perfect grammar.  It is a small thing for which I am ridiculed.  But I would rather the average Jane enjoy my writing without perfect grammar than for me to never write at all.  Therefore I write — albeit not perfectly — and blog (sometimes).
