When I read this the other day I thought it fit me perfectly. I’m sure many of you have been wondering what has happened to me, this blog, our conversations. What happened is life. So much has gone on in my life the last few years that many of you do not know about. I’m a pretty private person and some things I just had to keep close to me, I felt at the time that was the best way to heal. And then as time went on I figured we all have many different life experiences and sometimes it’s actually good to share. It can be healing, too. In the last few years I’ve gone through a divorce after being married 30+ years, my kids both moved away, I became self-employed and worked (and still do at times) too many hours that I care to count, had an unplanned emergency hospital stay, a car accident, a surgery and moved out of my home I have lived in for over 24 years. So many life changes! Something had to take a back seat in my life and it was this. Now can you see why this saying is so fitting? I think the last straw for me was the car accident and the residual effects that I deal with on a daily basis. It’s made me want to close the old chapters of the book, count my blessings, (and I have many) and move on. But in order to fully move on the way I need, I need to open my heart to new beginnings.
I thank you for your patience and understanding while I’ve been gone. You won’t see me here daily like in the old days and that’s OK, but you will see me back! I might just surprise you with some added things and I’d love to hear from you, too!
