I groaned. Not another show. I felt there are many wonderful moms out there who are so much better than me but Net 25 MOMents was persistent. They said the show is for mothers and kids that feature the different bonding moments, child-rearing styles and the many facets of motherhood. I felt like it has been ages since I have actually been a hands-on mom. I have long since enjoyed my independence from child-rearing since the girls turned 20. What could I possibly offer to the MOMents feature?

A techie mom! Great. I know that too well. It’s the first time that I am talking directly to the camera which I find weird. I am used to talking to a person. Help! The show format is such that I am the host of my segment. It turned out well despite my initial misgivings.

The amazing and coincidental thing happened. My segment appeared today and in it I showed off my favorite blog entry, College Sweethearts: Our Love Story.

And you know what? Today is March 7, our 31st anniversary as a couple.

What joy!
