FILL IN THE BLANK

Thank you so much to all of you that have still been dropping by here daily only to find that I haven't really blogged about anything in a week. I wish that I could adequately express how much the support I've received in this foray into the world of blogging means to me.

It's encouraging to see that new people seem to find this little blog each day...that some actually stick around long enough to read my thoughts and view multiple pages...that sometimes people comment...that people offer up prayers on my behalf...and sometimes...people even come back for a second, third, or fourth visit! Wow!!! It truly does mean a lot to me. It gives me a sense of camaraderie...of loyalty...of pride... And it is also humbling.

Currently, I feel a small amount of guilt that I have not been able to write...to muse...to ramble.

I really wish that I could give you a GREAT read right now.

I wish that I could simply give you a good read right now.

I'd even settle for "just a read".

Wednesday, Thursday, Friday, Saturday, Sunday, Monday, Wednesday, Thursday...I was on a roll. Then...my mind just went blank. Granted, it has been a busy time.

  • We went to a lake over the weekend for a mini-retreat with friends from church.
  • I got to visit my grandma.
  • The kids had a school holiday.
  • I worked.
  • There was Ladies' Bible Class.
  • I cleaned house, did laundry, and grocery shopped.
  • We had dinner with friends.
  • There were numerous activities for the kids, not to mention homework.
  • And on and on and on...such is the life of a mom. (Busy...yet glorious!)
But...I've been home, too. I've come to this computer almost every night. I've logged into this blog almost every night. And every night...I just sit here. The words will not come. There are so many things about which I could write, so many things about which I want to write, but the words will not come. Some remain hidden in my heart, not ready to surface just yet, while others are simply locked inside my mind in a whirlwind. (My thought process is always a whirlwind. It always has been. I go from one thought to the other with a speed that never ceases to amaze the man I have loved since 1992.)

So, please...accept my apologies if you've been disappointed from the blankness of the past week. And please...keep visiting! The words will come. The words about the friendships my family has made ~ friendships that words could not even begin to adequately describe...the words about my grandma, her joyful spirit, and her latest test results...the words about Ladies' Bible Class...the words about my children...the words about my husband...

The words will come.

I'm sure the words will come.

I read somewhere before that one easy way to start (or write) a post is to think of your day's high and low.

What helps me too is to just type away some of my thoughts and then re-read, re-read later; edit, then post :)

But bottomline is "no pressure" just blog when you can. No need to apologize. Blogging should be enjoyable for you, not a stress or a worry ;)

keep at it - the words will come! i think it is natural for all of us to go through a time when we can't find a way to create a post we think is worthy (i took all of summer off)

just remember to blog for yourself and let yourself off the hook! :O)

No need to apologize. Everyone deserves bloggy breaks.
