I am still here. I know that I have slowed down posting, but I am not done with this blog. I have been writing, but none of it is ultimately what I want to say. What I really want to say is that “my people,” women in my circle, whom I love like family, are hurting and facing just some of the hardest things. Telling you about my favorite vacuum or grout paint has just not felt right in this season. So, rather than blogging, I have been cooking them meals or texting or praying or grieving with them or calling these women I love. That is my priority right now and I am so grateful to be available when they need me.
When Jason and I decided that I would return to being home full time, I told him that I felt like God was preparing me for a season of serving my friends. The fall didn’t look the way I thought it would. I had a flare up of shingles followed by months of debilitating pain in my hips down to my ankles. It was during the time that I was unable to move easily and had trouble putting on real pants that I started this blog. I had unlimited time at my disposal then. I am so thankful that the pain I experienced is gone now and I feel healthy again. With the return of my health and energy, I am playing catch up from months of neglected mom duties and loving my friends and family tangibly.
So, I will still be posting, but I am not sure what that will look like. There may be weeks that I am really active, or some weeks that I am not. I know that isn’t a good business model, but really, I am in the business of loving people with a hobby of writing and trying to encourage those who may glean something from my insights. Thank you for all the ways you have encouraged me in starting this process. I am still here.
