Radio Silence


Hello, Lovelies!

I’m sorry for the radio silence.

This past month and a half have been strange.  I’ve been sick and just haven’t been able to keep up.   Honestly, it hasn’t been a matter of keeping up, It’s more like . . .



letting go.  Letting go of things that weren’t / aren’t essential for the day.  And, blogging fell into that category, for me.  I’ve had to just do a lot of nothing.  And, in time, the one thing I was able  accomplish for the day were things like going to the grocery store.  If you know me then you know I’ve always loathed going to the grocery store, and yet, now I find myself grateful I’m able to go and get my groceries.

In time, I’ll share more, but for now I’m still recovering.  And, in the recovering, I’m uncovering a lot things that need changing.  Not a crazy new list of things to do; more like a list of things not to do.  A let go list.  Making some trades.  Parting.   And, new practices.

I’ve had ample time to think, which for me usually turns into a task, or a try, or a web of words to write.  And, yet I feel all kinds of quiet.  Kind of like my words have dried up.  I’m sure they will return, but for now, maybe, I’m just supposed to listen?  Listen to my body.  Listen to my heart.  Listen to the Lord.

I’ve thought many a times about this space, this blog.  Has it run its course?  Do I still enjoy this?  Why I am I still doing this?  I know some of the answers, and others I’m listening for.  I’m certain I’ll always be one to share words, encouragement, information, and inspiration; It’s who I am.  However, how I do it (or how I blog), is one of the things I’m thinking through.  Currently, I’ll share what I can, as I can, and I hope you will continue to visit (I’ll be back tomorrow with a little giveaway).

For now, I’m off to the grocery store with a very grateful heart.

How are you, dear reader?


PS- Isn’t this 1980’s radio awesome?  I had this exact one as a kid, only mine was purple.  My best friend had a mint green one and her older sister had this pink/peachy one.  I saw this retro beauty at an antique store and snatched it up.  And, lucky me, I found some old tapes, this past week, that I think I just might pop in.

    I am so sorry that you have been feeling less than your typical wonderful self. It really is true what they say about having your health. The most important thing in the world is to take care of yourself first so that you can take care of your beautiful family. The blog can wait! I am always so amazed at how much effort you must put into the blog while still being such a great mom, wife, friend etc. My prayers are with you whatever you are battling. Rest and watch Love Actually. That always lifts my spirits. Take care.

    Thank you, Tara. Yes, it is true. I’m def in a season of self-care and just going at my own pace, whatever that looks like each day. Thank you for your kind words and prayers…. I really appreciate it. And, I will totally watch Love Actually….It’s one of my all time faves! xo . t

    hey miss trona, i have had similar thoughts so many times … i have been missing in action on my blog for far far too long … but very lately i have had thoughts like ‘it’s ok, i am doing life and also holding to what is important to me (not trying to do everything)’ … so the blog sits dormant … i always enjoy what you have to write and love seeing a post … but i am also as content to know you are not posting because you are caring for yourself and your family, which is far more important … we can only do what we can do … and listening to our heart is top of the list xx
