After a little sabbatical, I am inspired to put my fingers back on the keyboard to share from my heart. A couple of things have poked me to get back into blog world- a truth or dare type question in a group recently asking if I could do anything and not fail, what would it be. Write. (where did that come from??) The second was when a friend, a writer I admire, questioned whether I would be interested in joining a workshop to write a book. A book? I don’t know about that- a little too much commitment there. But, the seeds were planted.
So, where have I been and why am I stumped on what to write?
To look for a little direction, I read back through my blog history, my personal journals, and some of my other projects and I realized that my best writing, or at least my most frequent writing, was when I was struggling or even in pain. I am not that person anymore, so how do I write now? I’m actually in a really good place, not struggling or in any pain. Now I am even more encouraged to share my journey from then to now.
Well, let’s start with what caused my little blog sabbatical.
I got married.
Even more important, I actually remarried my ex-husband.
That usually gets some odd looks and blunt questions even. Next month will be 3 years! (and, in November, we will celebrate what should be our 30th anniversary… which, according to a favorite priest, is valid, since in God’s eyes we remained married during our not so little legal divorce decreed in a cold courtroom)
God is good – because He gets all the credit here! So much happened to get us to that point and then there are all the events since to share.
