Have you ever noticed that sometimes life gives you what you need, even if it isn’t what you want? That’s how I’m choosing to view this unexpected, but evidently needed, extended break from Simple Kids.
The issues here on the blog gave me the gift of time, allowed me to search my heart and make 100% sure this was what I wanted to be doing and where I wanted to be doing it, and not being able to write here gave me the first true extended break I’ve had since I began editing here in February 2010.
I didn’t want it, but I needed it.
Some of you might have noticed that the blog has just not been herself for months now (understatement!). Thankfully, people much brighter than I am have been hard at work on the the problems here and not only is the blog back, but I think it is going to be better than ever! I’m so thankful to the Oxenreider family, who took care of things for me here that I couldn’t take care of myself. My heroes!
I didn’t want these issues to happen.
I didn’t ask for this break.
In fact, I really missed writing here and I missed interacting with all of you. It made me sad and some of the issues were so frustrating I thought at times that I might quit blogging.
