Well, this blog has fallen on hard times! It is funny how life changes and the seasons and cycles challenge in different ways.
I am thinking that I may just try and blog a few times a week here in this neglected space. I find that typing out my thoughts center me and organize me in a way that nothing else does.
I spent about 10 minutes just reading a few of my blog posts from the past. They reminded me of thoughts and events long-forgotten. It was nostalgic and wonderful to revisit those moments. It was nice to have the memory in a special place--written and remembered.
I was just inspired by my latest read--a relatively new autobiography of Catherine Doherty--one of my special friends. I devoured this book--literally read it in one day. And it was a pretty busy day, so I think I might have devoted three-four hours to it over the course of my morning, afternoon and late evening! I was struck by how Catherine struggled in her faith--especially when she was young and into middle age. The author, Echo Lewis,describes with compassion the challenges Catherine (Katya) faced married to a verbally abusive husband who was also a philanderer. To see how she struggled to forgive him--over and over, is such a lesson in love and faith.
Well, waffles are done. Breakfast is served. And school is about to start. This stream-of-consciousness post is done. Cheers! Hope to write more later this week. :)
