silence

As a chatty, honest, say what I am thinking blogger I find it VERY hard to blog through certain valleys of life. I have blogged through disease, grief, change of careers, gravity's relentless attack upon my body...

But there are some things which do not belong in blogs.

I happen to be consumed on a daily basis with a valley in my family's life that is best not blogged about. My husband and I are making hard decisions about our future. We have been together since I was a teenager and he was only days into his twenties. We have beautiful children whom we adore in every way. When I see the word "we" I think of the four of us.

We are blessed with support, people to talk to, time, and mutual respect. We have not forgotten to love beautiful Fall days, laugh at the absurd, and relish a delicious meal. Chins are up and days are still one at a time.

All of my thoughts these days are the most personal possible. So I can't talk with you right now. These are not the worst of times. But they are the quietest.

I look forward to reconnecting with you some time. All 14 of you. Peace be with you, my friends.

Peace, love, and kind thoughts heading your way. I couldn't blog my way through the emotions of that portion of my life either, although it pokes it's head through my writing even a few years later. The decision making and people involved deserve privacy. May you all know peace.
