I decided that I have a lot of random information, theories and strong opinions that I want to get out in the public. It doesn't really matter to me who, if anybody reads all I have to say but I truly enjoy the right to freedom of speech and figured this is the best way to utilize it.
The name of my blog is a combination of two inspirations, the first is the Boom-Boom part which is inspired by my Aunt Ida whose nickname for me since I was a little girl was Boom-Boom. My brave aunt is battling brain cancer right now and she gives me so much strength in my life and has helped strengthen my faith in the Lord through her example and what this has done to help me communicate with my Heavenly Father more. Our family was never one for nicknames and this has been the only nickname I have ever had and the fact that it came from such an amazing woman who has been such a huge part of my life warrants it enough of an inspiration in my life to name my blog after it.
The second part, although obvious, was inspired by my incredible cousin Megan. She gave me the encouragement and support enough to push me over the edge so that I would actually create this blog. I hope everyone will feel the way she does in that I have a smidgen of talent in the writing area and that what i say matters and others would want to hear it. Megan has always inspired me and been somebody I want to emulate in that she graduated college, got married and is not pregnant with the first little one of our generation. She has set an example that you can follow the traditional path in life and not screw around or make stupid choices and come out on top while being happy and satisfied with the person you are. I hope that someday I can follow the path she has set for many of our generation.
As you can see, both parts of my blog title were inspired by two very influential people in my life who are members of my family. Conclusion: Family is everything...you are nothing without it. I love my family, immediate and extended, so much that I would do anything for them.
I hope this is the beginning of a great blog and I welcome any and all comments for this as well as all following entries. Good night to all.
