I have to confess, the past couple months have been more difficult to blog than ever and it has killed me. I sit down to write and think I pull it together and then fail. (Yes- fail!) I have thought so much about this and where the roadblock is and I think I may have figured out why. I have tried to follow rules, hold things together, put out the pleasantries that should be kept up with on a public basis and honestly- that just isn’t working for me.
Right now, in this moment, life is different than I thought it would be. I haven’t spoken much about it and I don’t know how much I will, but since the “cat was let out of the bag” I will mention that Sam is in Germany until October. He is so happy and proud to be a part of our military- to serve you and me and allow freedom to rock our lives! I am so very proud of him. His departure from our family happened pretty quickly- we were apart for three weeks, were able to go to Florida for a week, then he headed out. So, all in all, he has been gone for most of May and all of June. (The two months when blogging has been TERRIBLE for me!) I know- it’s totally uncool and way out of tune with where I want to be, so I decided that I would just talk about it, be real and move forward.
I don’t know for sure where that will leave me and I seriously hope that my blogging will get better now that I have this off my chest. I love blogging, I love more to talk with you- to know who you are that is out there and reading. To know that I am not alone and talking to myself. I thank you, appreciate you and will try very hard to change the lack of blogging. I have so much to say! I blog in my head every day… now to just get it in type and tell you those awesome, amazing and wonderful stories… I’m working on it, my friends- I’m working on it.
I wanted to share a few of my favorites from some of the times that Sam has been gone. These were taken on Mother’s Day. You might have seen some of them before, but I wanted to share these since they were my favorites. Please enjoy!
