Because it's meant so much, and because your being here has been such a blessing, I find it only deserving to be honest enough to say that after just over 5 1/2 years, I find I am no longer drawn to create posts here. Back in March, I started to examine what role this blog played in my life, and decided the healthy thing to do was to take a break for two months. I had no idea I'd eventually find that the passion for it was gone. I've struggled with it, week by week. Once I was no longer posting on any sort of schedule, the desire to post seemed to simply dissipate. It was what I needed it to be in my life for the time I was posting regularly, and now, I feel I am done for the time being.
I want everyone who has followed this journey to know that I so appreciate the friendships I've made, the love and support that was offered to me here, and the grace with which you let me be a part of your lives as well. I feel it would be disingenuous of me to pretend I'm still here and to simply never post, or post and check in very sporadically. So, for now, I'll just bid you all many warm hugs, and smiles to light your days. Who knows where this life journey will lead me... maybe even back here at some point. In the meantime, take care of yourselves, love those who mean the most to you, live your life with joy and without regret. And again, thank you from the bottom of my heart.
