I know this isn’t my normal Friday post. I shall return to my poetry next Friday, but I thought you might like to know a little about my absence. I’m sorry I’ve been absent from this blog for a while, but sometimes life throws things my way that require my time and energy in other places. I hope you all had a wonderful Christmas and that your 2018 has begun with joy.
There are several reasons for my recent absence here: 1) my husband and I were working on cleaning out a spare room in our house to make a space for me to go to write without distraction and interruption:
Our house is small and doesn’t have a lot of storage space, hence the freezer and cupboard and a few other items that share my space, but I LOVE the bookshelves filled with books and the open floor space! I’m so happy to have this wonderful place to go and let my imagination run free.
The other reason for my absence was due to the fact that my oldest son had jaw surgery for an overbite just four days before Christmas. The first four days were the worst, but even now he is limited on what he can eat, so I have been taking care of him and making sure he still gets nutritious items.
Now, however, both our older boys will be returning to college and bible school, respectively, in just a few days and it will be just my husband, our youngest son and I in the house. Our youngest and I will return to homeschooling, and I will return to my writing and blogging. I hope you will continue to follow me on this journey.
