Where did all the time go? One minute I was writing a blog, and then, poof! it disappeared! I feel guilty for leaving anyone who follows my blog perhaps wondering where I may have gone.
So much has happened in the past six months in my life, and my blog fell away under the craziness.
I decided to go back to college this past September so that perhaps I could graduate with a degree at the same time as my daughter. I qualified for financial aid so I took two courses (online) and managed to receive an A for both, but boy, did it take a lot of my time. Especially when I am also trying to run my Etsy.com vintage shop simultaneously!
Then came Christmas...a very small Christmas due to our financial difficulties. So much thanks to our oldest son who bought a Wii U for his brothers and sisters for Christmas. Everything else came from Savers or the Salvation Army!
Then I had to decide if I was willing to continue with school, seeing how much time it took last semester. And crazily, I decided to take two more classes which started in January.
And for the biggest change of all....
Our first grandchild was born January 25. A beautiful girl named Madeline Grace who has so blessed our family.
So you can see how I let my blog slip.
And now, I am contemplating whether God is calling me to continue this blog, or whether he has other plans in mind. I have missed writing and communicating with the people who read my blog and I am leaning toward trying to maintain it.
For now, I shall pray about it, and I would ask if you could spare a prayer for me and for my family and our finances, and especially for newborn Madeline.
May God bless you and yours!
