I had to take a break but I'm back, I think.
If you have been a follower for awhile, you'll know that I don't use my blog as an outlet to complain, gripe or tell you all my woes. (really--I don't have all that many woes!)
This is a happy place!
But for awhile there, I considered getting out of the blogging business all together. I wasn't finding joy in my crafting. It was more than just loosing mojo, I seriously had to take a step back and re-evaluate. I hinted awhile back that there were lots of changes going on in the Fowler family. I've been homeschooling my son for the past nine years and we made the decision to put him in school next year for eighth grade. I feel good about that decision. Now it is time for me to decide what I want to do. Exciting and Terrifying!
Another thing that had been weighing me down is changes in my mom's life. She moved into a retirement home a few weeks ago. I say "she moved"; she made the decision, but my sister and I had to take care of it all for her. I have traveled home (650 miles one way) three times this summer and have one or two more trips ahead of me. This is my childhood home we are talking about, I didn't know it would hit so hard.
After my last trip home, I felt like a small weight had been lifted. I say small, because I still don't feel free. But my mind cleared just enough to know that I don't want to stop blogging. I may not be a frequent poster, but I hope to spread joy whenever I do post. Hope ya'll stick with me!
Thank you to all who commented on my Robin Story! I didn't mean to leave you hanging! I'll finish the story in my next post.
Much love to all of you!
Wishing you all a day filled with joy!
