It's been so long that I almost forgot the URL, I had to sign in to my own blog to create a post.
I'm not sure what happened there, a season in which I abandoned the blog entirely. There was grief and loss, a busy summer, then a new school year that brought with it a new Grammar class to teach (lots of study for me!) Next came the holidays and a screaming feeling that if I don't keep doing the next thing on my list the world will fall apart and it will be my fault. (Not true!)
In this season, I can hear myself breathing again and when the sink is full of dishes and there are math papers to grade I sometimes find myself stopping;
to stare at the full moon
to tickle my growing boys or
to read to them again for hours on end.
Slowly, I'm beginning to want to blog again. A restful activity for my heart.
But for today I must prepare for class tomorrow. So a simple little note to get my mind and heart going.
Life is not an emergency.
