I've decided I'm ordering business cards.
With my blog address on them.
I shared my blog address with a friend a couple days ago, and just knowing that I may have a potential new reader was enough to light the "blogging fire."
And apparently I think having my blog website listed on a business card would be easy enough to motivate me. So, yeah, I'm going to do that.
And to the 41 one of you who are already reading my blog...I'm sorry I haven't blogged since April. I didn't mean to ignore you. I just have been "busy" raising children, playing with kids, breaking bones, traveling, reading, hammocking, front porch sitting, roller derby reffing, injuring myself more, running a VBS, hosting Elena from Spain, and cooking. You know...the norm.
But, these last few days I've taken a break from chaos and allowed myself to rest. And I keep coming back to writing. And how good it feels to see my thoughts flesh out with help of the blinking cursor. I have started a new notebook to journal in. I have been writing little love "sentences" to David (he's working so many hours he does not have time for a whole note...)
Writing is who I am...it's what I do...and I hope to remember, with the help of those business cards, that I can still write---no matter what is happening around me. I don't have to have some original idea that is going to shock the world when I sit down to blog. I don't have to have 1500 words all lined up. I just need to be honest, transparent, and open to the power of words. After all, sometimes all it takes is one sentence scribbled on the back of a napkin to change your day.
