Welcome to Petals by Paige and the Ultimate Blog Party! This is my first year to participate and I am excited about meeting new blogger friends and visiting their blogs! If you haven’t heard about it yet, The Ultimate Blog Party is hosted by 5 Minutes for Mom. It is a great opportunity to visit new blogs, make new friends, and win some wonderful prizes.
I am so glad that you stopped by. Blogging has been an important part of my life for many years. In 2007 I created this blog just for fun and it took me over 18 hours to get it where it was readable and presentable! Little did I know that this blog would lead me to be a website owner, web designer and now webmaster for my church. This blog first began as a hobby, and somewhat of a teaching tool, but it is now my haven. It is now where I share our second journey of cancer. After surviving esophageal cancer in 2008, my husband, Pat, was diagnosed in October 2010 of stage IV pancreatic cancer. We are in the fight of our life, but held firmly in His Grip.
I am a Texas born, Oklahoma-raised gal who married the love of her life and moved back to Texas. Pat and I have been married 26 years and have three beautiful children that we adore. In my spare time, I love creating silk and dried floral arrangements and five years ago turned my passion into a part-time business called Petals by Paige.
The best part of blogging is the friendships and the camaraderie. Many of my dearest friends have been met here. They encourage me, pray for me and even send me texts. Just today I got a card in the mail from a blogger friend, Teresa, who I barely know, telling us that she is praying for our family. Blogger friends are faithful and love you from afar!
So glad you stopped by and I hope we meet along the way. Join the UBP and meet some new friends! You will be glad you did!
