Starting this blog was to take a step out of my comfort zone. I am having fun learning about and being a part of the blogosphere. I am also humbled by the experience. Did you know that you can track the statistics in great detail for a blog? The number of followers, the number of views and implied, the lack thereof. However, I decided early on that I was not going to pay a lot of attention to my blog statistics. For I have always been more interested in the qualitative than the quantitative. Many years ago, I was blessed with the opportunity to quit my engineering job and be a full-time stay-at-home mom. I didn’t change the world, but I was the biggest influence in the lives of two little boys. I am not a globe-trotter, but cards of encouragement that I have written have traveled far and wide. The qualitative starts with just one person that I can reach out to. The quantitative is good and absolutely necessary for sales and marketing. Regardless, I get the most excited about the individual and that one genuine connection. For that reason alone, I will always choose the qualitative over the quantitative.

Teach us to number our days, that we gain a heart of wisdom.
And even the very hairs of your head are all numbered.
