Hey, look. The long-lost blogger has returned. And she might even be noticed by all two or three of you who still read this blog occasionally.
I haven’t really done any writing at all for a while now. I’ve had plenty of ideas and thoughts swirling around in my head, but I just didn’t have the energy, the discipline, the desire to form those thoughts into complete sentences and send them through my fingers to the keyboard of my computer.
Lately, though, I’ve been wanting to write again. Needing to write again. And so, here I am. Back to this little blog.
At various times, I’ve thought about revamping the whole blog – going with a new name, a new site, a more focused theme. I know that all the most successful blogs sort of have one overarching theme or sense of direction, a focus. I suppose I won’t ever have a successful blog because I can’t choose just one theme. I am too random.
So I’ll still be writing about mothering and about mothering children with differences. I’ll write about the funny things my children do and the disgusting messes they make. I’ll write about God and my relationship with Him, my steps forward and my steps back. I’ll write about serious, thoughtful things, and I’ll write about stuff that doesn’t really matter, like the TV show LOST or my favorite tall black boots. I’ll write about the weird people I see in Wal-Mart and about learning to love Florida and missing the mountains of West Virginia and Virginia. I’ll write about belonging and longing to belong (though I won’t try to say that sentence ten times very quickly). I’ll write about cooking and about trying to keep an apartmentful of children organized. I’ll write about my life — the good, the bad, the ugly.
And in between all my writing, I want to read what you have to say. Comment. Agree. Disagree. Share your funny stories. One-up my kids’ disgusting messes. Share your recipes and organizational tips. Make me laugh. Make me cry. Interact with me, with the other couple of people who read these posts.
Ok, let’s start this long-lost blog back up again.
