Starting again

These past few months I've been on a journey. It's been a chapter in the making for some time now; trying to find a balance in my days as I transition from one place to another.

There have been all kinds of things to write about, but I could never seem to formulate or articulate any of my thoughts. I stared at a blank screen more than once, willing words to come, but just as that watched pot never boils, pressure to produce seemed to bring about just the opposite.

Though my words were stilled, my heart was not. I have felt intense emotions these last few weeks: some good...some not so good. But the fact that I feel something gives me hope that the words will eventually come.

So if you're still there, know that I'm still here.
It's time to begin once again.

Always here, Lori. XOXO

I know exactly how you feel.
I do believe there was another graduation in your family this year and a fine young man getting ready to spread his wings and fly. A proud moment for sure but not easy for a mom.

Lori said...

Thanks, Cheryl. That means a lot, and the feeling is mutual! :-)

Yes, my son did graduate. An upcoming post on that. I started it but just wasn't at the place where I could gather my thoughts. Thanks for being there for me!

Lori, I know the words will come like they did for this post and you will be writing from your heart once again.

Ahh, it's good to have you 'back in the saddle'.

I can echo your words here. A blank slate sometimes evokes a blank mind. Not that the words aren't there, they just seem to become suddenly stubborn.
