I am coming back

I am coming back.

I have not posted in awhile.

I have had great ideas.  I have written articles in my mind as I walked with my dog Ginny.

But putting paper to pen or fingers to computer has not happened.

My daughter-in-law’s stage 4 cancer along with the other regular ups and downs of living have at times sapped* my energy.     Kindness

I needed to sleep, read, walk and watch movies.

I wanted to be alone.  Yet, I did not want to be alone.

Along the way I realized that I missed the camaraderie of my blogging world.

Engaging in on-line conversations was wonderful.

Often, we don’t miss the water until the well goes dry.

In other words, I missed you!

And, I need this community.  The wisdom, the solace, the presence.

So, I am coming back.

Actually, I am back.

*Sapped:  “But if you sap a person of strength, you’ve rendered him defenseless.  Whether used as a noun or verb, sap is rarely a good thing.  If your energy or your will is sapped, it’s not meant lightly; it means you have been exhausted of all your reserve energy, you’re reduced to a shell.”  http://www.vocabulary.com/dictionary/sap
