Opening this page is kind of like meeting an old friend that you haven't seen in over ten years. There is excitement, nervousness and regret all at the same time. Why has it been so long? Will we still have as much in common? Will we be able to reconnect? Do I want to make the effort? I can't wait!
The truth is that I've missed being here as much as those of you who have been sweet enough to say you missed my writing. There is something about writing that is such a great outlet for me. It forces me to look at my day, however trying, and see the good...or at least the lesson. It has become my journal, the kids' baby books, and a connection to so many wonderful and encouraging people.
I promised myself not to let this die...though it may have happened organically while I was away. The thing is I've always done this as much for myself as for those of you who so faithfully read it. I intended to take a little break. I had no idea it would turn into a six month hiatus.
There is a reason, a very good reason I might add for this long break. But that explanation is for another day. Today I just wanted to dip my toes in the water and maybe hang my feet over the edge of the pool to see if I remember how to swim.
Maybe tomorrow will be the day I dive back in.
