It's been awhile since I've written. And I'm not really sure what's holding me back...
Nearly four years ago I carved out this spot for my thoughts, never knowing that it would become a place of safe-keeping for my memories; a guardian of my most precious moments, reflections and joys. It has become a part of me and lately, I have missed that.
Life has its share of ebbs and flows. The tide comes in bringing promise and hope; a new day, a new start. And it goes out, taking the familiar, old dreams and "what might have been." A long time ago I read a quote that said, "If you want to make God laugh, just tell Him your plans."
Life never happens the way we intend. Sometimes it surprises us with obstacles and we lose our footing as we waver on the footbridge of our days. And other times we look out a seemingly bland window and are greeted by a magnificent sky.
It's time to walk out to the waves, wet my feet...and jump in.
Life marches on. And I want to be part of the band.
