Is This Thing On?
ahem. Hi, friends.
Please forgive me. I know I’ve been gone from this space for quite some time now. For no real reason other than I just lost the joy that I felt in writing and I refused to clutter the internet with mindless garble and forced sentences. There is too much of that out there. While I know that nothing I write is earth shattering, I still want what I write to feel honest and real. And, when I couldn’t do that, I took some much needed time off.
My, how I’ve missed y’all. I’m sure most of the people I loved to hear from are long gone, but I pray a few of you are still out there. I can’t say I blame them for leaving. They probably quit checking for updates long ago…and I’ll miss them. But, I understand.
I’ve been incredibly busy just living and it’s been so great. Isn’t there something truly amazing about the first few months of face-warming spring weather? I makes me feel like anything is possible, like all is well in the world and love will conquer all. All of that in a simple 75 degree day. I can’t tell you how many times I’ve turned my face to the sun and thanked God lately. Even though winter was uncommonly warm, that first indication that it was gone sure felt good.
We’ve been playing copius amounts of baseball. Seriously serious amounts, actually. Tell me, is there anything more adorable than little boys in baseball uniforms, spitting sunflower seeds in the dugout and harrassing pitchers with quirky chants? I can’t imagine there is. And, that scene is framed by little sisters who play in the dirt and cheer for big brothers with an adorable lisp and zest. ZEST, I tell you. Sister brings the ZEST.
We’re in up to our shoulders in Crossfit. I’m sure you’ve heard of it by now. It’s a lifestyle really. And one that I keep praying I’ll fall head over heels in love with. But, I can’t lie, it’s hard to carve out time with all the baseball. ALL. THE. BASEBALL.
I miss this space. This blank page. This empty canvas.
I’ll be back again. SOON. I promise.
I’ve missed you.
