5 months…to the day!

April to September.  5 months.  150ish days.  I have been silent.  (Well, only in blog world, really).  And the most interesting part – I really couldn’t tell you why I haven’t blogged, but maybe I could circle around some reasons?IMG_6577

Possibly it was the transition from school schedule to summer schedule in our home?  Possibly it was the focus on training for another triathlon that sucked my time?  Possibly it was simply I wasn’t allowing myself the time to write to release all of those stories and thoughts in my head?  Or possibly it was simply I no longer kept it a priority in the list of things to do.  Most likely – it is the later one combined with letting life swirl re-actively around me versus me being proactive with my choices.  It is ironic to me when I look at it that way – I am supposed to know better!

So – now I am giving myself the grace to write.   It may only be read by a few, but that is okay.  It takes it from my mind to my fingers to my blog and during that process, I usually sort out a few things I have been struggling with, and that is makes it worth it to me.

So, welcome back to me.  Looking forward to sharing with you again.



I believe I have thought of re-doing a blog every day for the past month.  I have another blog for my ramblings, and another blog for family postings, but both have been neglected over the past several months.  Why?  I am not sure.

So, in honor of the new year and resolutions that have me looking past the immediate, I am going to begin this blog.  It will be a blog of sharing my thoughts on some things, sharing about the people in my life and their stories, sharing about what God has taught me that day, sharing what is enjoyed in the quiet moments, and sharing those quirky moments that seem to only happen to me, yet in reality – they happen to you too.

Thanks for stopping by.
