Once upon a time. . .

Once upon a time I started a blog. I had lots to talk about, and a fair amount of time to do the talking. I wrote a LOT. I commented on other blogs a LOT. I made some real, genuine friends through blogging. I even married one of them :-).

Along the way my blogging slowed down because I had the brilliant epiphany that maybe my ramblings weren't quite as important as I used to think they were. The other reason was that my priorities started changing, and my time became more important. I didn't want to miss out on the here and now while blogging about the abstract. And things like courtship, wedding planning, marriage, pregnancy, child-rearing take up a lot of time :-). And that's not a bad thing.

But I really do miss the community of blogging, I miss the camaraderie; I miss expressing my deepest thoughts through the written word. I still lurk on my favorite blogs, but I don't comment a lot, like I used to, nor do I write as much as I used to (and when I do, my posts aren't nearly as involved as they used to be!).

I'm still here. Even if I only show my face once a month or so :-). I'm busy making my 4-month old giggle from my silly faces, reading Sherlock Holmes with my Honey, discussing theology with my fellow local believers, and I'm sewing, cooking, and cleaning. I'm living the life that God has set before me, and I'm loving it :-).

That's a-ok! Different seasons call for different things.

I think my blogging will slow down considerably soon as well.

Susan ~ I love your last three words, "I'm loving it!" That's as it should be, and I'm glad the Lord has blessed you with so many good things. (But we do miss your blogging!) :)

I admit...I miss your posts...but I completely agree that you should be focused on your life right now! Something I've been realising lately as well is the different "seasons" of life in blogging...I haven't blogged in a month or so either! :P

I second that emotion. My blog is like a post-apocalyptic quarantine zone of memories these days- and I couldn't be less concerned. I hear you, ma'am :)

I miss the friendship we had via blogging. Of course, I miss seeing you in person too, even more. :-) But I was reading old posts and I was realizing how much we used to tease each other online.

Ah, times change and I know that! I just wanted ya to know. :-) I hope you're having a wonderful time! I can't wait to see Hans again! Do you have any Georgia trips planned? :-)

I miss you, Susan :). I'm glad though, that your priorities are right!

Becky said...

Good for you! I wait for the day when I'll have a little one to fill up my "free" moments. You are blessed and you are enjoying your blessings, Bravo, Susan!
May God continue to richly bless you.
