Don’t forsake the one you love


It was only a few months ago that I started writing this blog.  I can’t tell you how exciting it was for me to finally have a consistent place to record my thoughts and hopefully share them with you.  In fact, the past year or so have been a precious gift of time — time for reconnecting, time for rediscovering old passions, time for investing in those pursuits that I have found give me the most joy.

But, I’ve been away for some weeks; my little creative garden has lain fallow.  The why isn’t important — things to do, a new job, etc.  I let fresh demands push away what I truly love, and I have found myself feeling disconnected, although it took me some time to discern what was amiss in my world.  The other day, I ran into an old friend who mentioned he had read my blog and enjoyed it.  “Really?” I responded, feeling that little thrill that comes from someone’s acknowledgement.

So, today, I’m getting back into my garden, thankful that it is still here and waiting.  I’ll pull a few weeds, and at least stop by to say “hello”.  I’ve missed you, and I’m back.  Already, I feel better.  How is your garden?

  1. Glad you’re back! My garden is full of weeds, literally and figuratively! I’ve had some hectic days, and I’m anxious to get back to a life of less stress and a lovely feeling of calmness. Hope I can achieve it!!
