I am always encouraged to write things down. As a teller of stories, I wonder if I can translate it to the written word. I titled my blog The Popcorn Thoughts of Mamajoe for a several reasons. It was a challenge to come up with a name. So many thoughts rushed through my head. Then I pondered tying in my favorite snack....Popcorn. Hmmm.....popcorn thoughts? Didn't want to put my given name on there. If my kids read this they don't call me Debbie. If my friends read this, they don't call me mom. But there is one name I go by and that is mamajoe. How did that name come about? That's a story for another blog. So there it is; my first blog on my first blog site. Now that that's out of the way, let's get on with the show.
