Hey Everyone! I missed y’all! I missed blogging! I feel like I missed everything! My feed reader got so stuffed I blindly deleted a bunch of posts, just to save my sanity. Now I regret it!
So how are y’all doing? How’s the WIP going? How’s the spring break going? What’s up???
I thought it was going to take me all week to undo my burn-out and exhaustion. I thought I was going to have to spend a couple days in bed, just to clear my head.
In reality, it took me three hours of holding my niece in my arms as she slept. Dear God in heaven, some things are just so amazing and wonderful and … heart-filling, that it feels like your whole world changes. It was the best three hours of the year, excepting the four or so hours I spent with her in January.
Does that sound ridiculous?
After that wonderful day, I’ve spent all week at Borders reading and writing. I’ve been devouring books on Africa. I’ve never been there, but I’m falling in love with the place. God, it’s so gorgeous and raw.
And I’m torn up about things there. I just can’t see closing my eyes and pretending the world doesn’t exist, you know? It breaks your heart, though.
Are there any women out there who don’t have kids? Did you ever hit a spot in your life where you feel like you need to do something? Give some meaning to your life? Something outside yourself? With kids, I’m sure it’s easy; you’re doing a whole heck of a lot for the world. But me? I live to support myself my DH. Isn’t that the most self-absorbed and selfish thing?
