What’s in a name?

After much reluctance and mental calculations as to how I will be able to fit yet another thing into my schedule, I have entered the world of Blog.  I use as my inspiration my neighbor, my friend &  my pastor’s wife extraordinaire.  If she can squeeze it in, then there’s hope for me!  I have been feeling lately that I need an outlet for all these thoughts running around in my head, and that if I can give them a place to roam, maybe it won’t be so crowded in there.    Hopefully some of it will be interesting to someone else 🙂

For my first post, I wanted to explain my choices in names.  Those who know me and have my email address may have wondered about my odd screen name – Kermooch.  It’s actually a nickname given to me by my husband when we were dating.  I don’t know where he got it – I don’t think he does either.  He rarely calls me by it anymore, but I have found it useful when it comes to screen names because it is unusual and it is never taken.  I don’t have to add a string of numbers after it.  It’s just kermooch. I’ve used it since we first got on AOL over 10 years ago.  It’s strange, but it’s mine, and don’t even think of borrowing it!

As for the name of my blog – Sonflower – I have always had a love for sunflowers.  They make me smile when I see their bright yellow faces.  There’s nothing as gorgeous as a huge field of them on a clear blue day.  One day I’m going to run in that field.

The only thing better than a sunflower with it’s face turned toward the sun is a Sonflower with her face turned toward the SON.  That’s what I strive to be.  I don’t always succeed.  Sometimes I get distracted or I lose my focus.  But I always find myself turning to find Him and He is always there.
