Blog Your Heart|November 2013

I found this on another blog and thought it would be a good way to ease back in to blogging. 

1. blog whatever is authentic. whatever is truly on your mind and in your heart.

2. It can be serious, silly, short, long. NOTE:no one said it has to be serious. But it should be authentic.

3. No judging allowed no snarky comments, no making fun, no passive aggressive digs. Nothing here is whining, though I can't help it if you perceive it that way. It's me honestly sharing my feelings. if you feel that it's whining, then you don't have to read. :)

I have taken a break…  for a few reasons.  The first reason is that I just have not had the time… our life has just exploded and we are BUSY! Our little Kindergartener has a full social calendar… that combined with me working a few days a week and moving/unpacking…a couple holidays and BOOM! No time for to blog! 

Another reason is that I have struggled if I would even come back and blog.  Mike and I have made the decision to remove some people from our life.  Again never an easy decision but some times necessary. It is especially difficult when those people are family. That said our lives are so much better and more peaceful for it.  However, I know that one of them actively reads my blog and it annoyed me… not sure why. 

Then I found out she was posting on Facebook about our family.  She posted about Katy’s heart transplant garnering sympathy and support.  It made me physically ill… Never calling or checking in. This is the same person who once when angry with me told me that it was Karma and that is why Katy was sick.  Katy was 2 years old at the time.  Who says that?!  It takes a certain kind of horrible to bring children into an argument, but to bring a sick child into it… I mean really I basically have no use for you at that point.

So that made me question what I share here and if I wanted to continue sharing knowing she was reading here.  Again Mike and I talked and Mike reminded me that I blog for me, as a record for our family, I blog for family who we love and who love our family and genuinely care about us and want to get updates and see pictures.  I blog for all that have loved and prayed for our family and our sweet girl and continue to pray for us. 

With that the decision was made to continue to keep the blog.

I am so glad you are back and you don't even know me. I have no memory of how I ever first came to your blog, but I have checked for updates day after day in recent weeks praying that the silence meant you were busy and that Katy was doing well. Finally yesterday I looked for your FB page and saw a recent picture. I'm so thrilled for all of you. I love how real you have been in your blogging. A blessed Thanksgiving celebration to you.
