"I'm back..."




Can it really be that two months have passed without a blog post?  I have thought about posting often, however the "awkward" silence of too much time gone by has been a major stumbling block...until tonight.  I read my friend Mary's blog at Play off the Page.  Here is the quote that inspired me: 

The secret of getting ahead is getting started. The secret of getting started is breaking your complex, overwhelming tasks into small, manageable tasks, and then starting on that first one. Mark Twain

So, I am getting started. 

Last January I had written a blog post on "No, Slow, and Go!"  The last few months have found me in a "No" season.  All my energy has been focused on making it from one day to the next. For awhile, my work schedule was crazy busy.  Then some unpleasant side effects from cancer treatment (horrible body pain, muscle aches and fatigue) had me hitting the couch.  A dear friend of mine was diagnosed with breast cancer. And then on Christmas eve, a very important loved one was admitted to the ICU for septic shock.   (Thankfully, my loved one is home now and doing much better!)

I have missed bloggersville!  I have missed all of you!  I am ready to start writing once again...

I am so glad to see you back. I have truly missed you. I am so sorry for all of the hard trials of life. I am sending a dear friend of mine that needs your sweet touch and "keep going" attitude.

Just a few words from you is powerful to all of us so keep them coming when you can. I love you!

YAY!! So glad you're back, Kim!! That feeling of overwhelm hits everybody from time to time. I try to remember that old saying,
How do you eat an elephant?
One bite at a time
:)

Kim,
A couple of weeks ago I checked your blog to make sure I hadn't missed one. I can identify with being off track and finding it difficult to get back on the train. God will guide us and steer us in the right direction.

XOXOXO,
Brenda

Glad to see you back too! I love the Mark Twain quote. I need to remember that one. I have been procrastinating about getting back to my book long enough...
