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.
