Here we are, and well over a month has passed since I wrote my last entry. So much for my promise of once a week… To those of you who are reading this, thank you for not giving up on me! I actually have started “writing” blog entries in my head so many times over the past month, usually while riding in the car or while nursing Charlie or rocking him to sleep. Only once did one of those beginnings make it into typed form, and that one I never posted because I hadn’t quite finished it when I went to bed. That was March 20th, and late that night I got the news that my grandma had passed away. For about a week I had no desire at all to finish writing the entry I had started, and once I thought about it again it seemed irrelevant.
I do, however, have a few topic ideas up my sleeve—so we’ll see whether I can follow through this spring and keep up with a blog that I’m not being held accountable for like I was for my old one.
Anyway, I’ll go ahead and post this now before I am pulled away from the computer and never come back to finish it. I will do my best to update again within a week! Here is a photo taken at my wedding reception of Daniel and me with my Grandma Arlyn and Pop-pop Paul, now almost two years ago; and also one of Grandma holding Charlie soon after he was born last summer. Eternal rest grant unto her, O Lord, and let perpetual light shine upon her. May the souls of the faithful departed, through the mercy of God, rest in peace. Amen.
