Well, I’m not really sure how to start this post. Those of you who follow me know that I’ve been out for a few weeks. There’s been a lot going on. As I mentioned in my last few posts, my grandmother passed away and my husband and I celebrated our wedding anniversary. We’ve also had a family vacation (a working vacation, but still a vacation). For those who don’t realize, Zoe’s third birthday was last week. Our homeschool year started. Practice for the Christmas cantata has picked up. I’ve had some more medical stuff going on. The list could go on and on – as, I’m sure, could yours. And some of those things are important, but they don’t really tell you what’s been going on.
To be totally honest, the reason I haven’t posted for a few weeks is that I’ve been hiding. There’s been a lot going on. I’ve been busy. And, wherever I’ve been, I’ve interacted with others, been (semi-) social, and taken care of the things that needed done. I haven’t really known how to deal with some of the things that have been going on, though, so I’ve sort of been waiting. For what, I’m not really sure. I think I’ve been waiting until I knew what I wanted to say. I’ve decided, though, that might not ever happen. So, here I am.
The most important thing about this post, I think, is that it’s as real as I am. It doesn’t really say much, I’m afraid, but It says that life makes us vulnerable, sometimes, and confused. And that’s okay. As long as we can be honest about our imperfections, they can be helpful.
My goal, over the next few days, is to post several short updates, on some of the different things that have been happening. I have a lot to share, but I don’t want to try and cram it all in at once – you wouldn’t want to read it and I don’t know if I would want to write it! So, for now, that’s all. I just wanted to let you know where I’ve been (I’m not really sure!). Lord willing, there will be more soon. Until next time!
