I know I’ve been neglecting this blog, and by extension, that means I’ve been neglecting you. I’m so sorry. You, my friends, keep me going when things are tough and while I may not be blogging quite as manicly (that can’t possibly be spelled correctly) as I was before, you are in my heart, my mind and my prayers.
It may be November before things get back to normal, but let me share some happy thoughts:
While I have managed to drive away two bee colonies, Michael Phelps the squirrel will soon be ready to return to the wilderness of our backyard. Flavors of Lake will start next month and that’s really exciting. The Chamber’s Home Based Business Expo was very successful and apparently has prompted at least one local advertising paper to recognize Home Based Businesses in the area, and I have an appointment with a rep from the local daily paper so we’ll see what that brings. My Guardian columns are gaining readership. Life is good and every day I hear from someone who has received some wonderful blessing…so while things are hard financially for many people, there is still evidence of God’s love for us…and that makes me want to do more to take care of his people. Something is perking but I just don’t know what it is yet.
Today, I’m tired. I’m tempted to feel discouraged for some reason, but I really don’t want to go there. There’s no concrete reason for this discouragement so I think I just need a nap, or a weekend of nothingness, or an enjoyable book (for me, Pride and Prejudice has not been enjoyable, I’m sorry to say), or a trip to the Keys or an afternoon spent painting rocks and stuff with a friend (Joyce, are you reading???). So if you run into me, remind me of all the good stuff and don’t let me slip into a funk. I think I need your help this time.
