I had intended to take a short break from blogging...
just to rest
Instead I found myself making the decision to live in the moment with those around me instead of living with my laptop and list of blog posts.
I chose to love my finite world while the bloggy world went unattended.
Days passed.....then weeks
I paid more attention to my husband. It wasn't a question of loving more but of giving him more of me.
I spent time with children and grandchildren.
I even made time for myself...without guilt.
I savored the day's events without composing blog posts in my head.
I watched the sun rise and set.
I found joy in early morning walks.
I worked on trusting Him more so that I could find relief from the worries that too easily consume me.
I let go....
The real life issues are still there, calling out to me, demanding my time and energies.
I will deal with it all.
And there is also time for blogging.
