I have actually been blogging for years… 2005 I believe, but I will need to go check. The past few years have slowed down because the rest of me had sped up and what I was writing was sometimes hard and in a dark place. And sometimes it is hard to move on from a dark place. But I have. The other morning mom and I were having coffee and I had read her some of the wonderful comments from my facebook post and I cried and was overwhelmed by the joy and sanctity I found in what each one had to say. And mom said I had tried to get you into teaching for years, and I smiled. I knew that. But I wasn’t ready for it. And I honestly can’t say that I would be where I am now, with such a strong footing and a perspective that tries so hard, on a daily basis, to see beyond today… in order to catch both a glimpse and a foothold for what we may need for tomorrow. So here I am. Please let me know that you have been here… say what you would like to say… and let us both encourage and find solace in one another. And then laugh out loud because it heals the soul.
