Back in the Saddle Again


Dear Faithful Friends and Gentle Readers,

As you are reading this you may be wondering why I haven’t blogged for such a long time.  Or you may be well aware of the reason for my absence from my own site.  You may have even helped me out, prayed for me or been in regular contact supporting me as I have been recovering from the rug being pulled out from under me last October.  If so, THANK YOU!  You may know as well that although I still have the medical diagnosis of ‘Stage 4 cancer’ (no cap on that word on purpose!), I am feeling (albeit hair-lessly) almost normal again.  I am pain-free, strength and energy are returning and I’m endeavoring to use my time more purposely now than I was able to for many months while going through chemo.  I’d like to say that I’m 100% “healed”, but the scans don’t show that yet.  I’ve had faithful prayer and I’m hopeful that I can live out many more years to come!

So I’m looking forward to getting back into the blog saddle again.  My blog posts that I intend to write in the future may be anecdotal reflections on my peregrinations (or wanderings if you prefer, but isn’t that a great word?) or more spiritual in nature since I’m on a more spiritual journey these days.

You’re so very welcome to join me on this journey and I heartily invite you to comment, question and help me to get going again please!  You see, I’m not working yet, or maybe won’t again.  I’m not sure.  But I’d love to write more and more and maybe one day when I grow up I’ll be a ‘real writer’ and make some money!  (Actually, I did get paid for writing once.)  I’ve honestly been planning to write again for months, but I’ve felt ‘stuck’.  So I think the secret is to write only a little at a time and not let myself get overwhelmed.  Enough for today then!  See you soon I hope.  oxoxo
