I have not posted a blog recently- it's been 3 months, in fact. I've written several blog posts over those months, but have not posted any of them.
Things in my world have been a little bit upside down of late, and while I've been struggling with following my own mandate to find the joy and love in everything, I haven't felt qualified to post.
A rather silly perspective, I suppose, as sharing the struggles is as important (if not more important!) as sharing the triumphs, but I was concerned they would come across as hollow, or fake. I want to be fully present in the moment when I write and post here ...
I am working at getting myself back on-track with my writing, and will explain some of what's been happening in my world as I go along.
Some of what I've been dealing with includes joyful things as well, to be fair:
(I enjoyed being a bit of a slacker while I spent more time with my kids during their summer break!)
And some things have been very, very hard:
During the month of August, we said good-bye to four family members, the first (and hardest) of which was my big brother.
Just typing that last sentence was very painful; it's as if putting the words down forces me to accept their truth.
As I said, Please, Stand By ...
