I found this post when I finally sat down to think about blogging again today. I thought I'd just go ahead and post it, although I think it's a month or two old...yikes!
Now that my allergies have subsided for the year, I can get back to hanging my laundry again. I truly love to hang laundry. It's one of those things that makes me smile inside and gives me time to think. Life has sort of given me a one-two-punch lately and so I've had plenty to think about.
As I was hanging laundry, it occurred to me that one reason I feel so unsettled about this blog is that I'm trying too hard. I have all these ideas and projects I want to share, but I don't have time to do them, take pictures, write posts and still handle the day to day needs of my family. While I come up with some pretty nifty ideas for things from time to time, most of my ideas are pretty darn average. Trying to organize my blog and stick to a certain subject on certain days or making sure I have a certain number of posts a week is taking away from the things I need to do here.
I don't want to quit the blog though, because I've gotten some really sweet emails from people who are finding encouragement from my blog and that makes me happy.
For now, then, I will just blog what is on my mind or what I am actually doing at the time and hopefully it will be a blessing to someone out there.
