So y'all may have noticed that I stopped blogging late last fall.

I had several epiphanies, I made some changes, I started really talking to my best girlfriends about the things that were on my heart. I backed way off from conversing with anyone I did not know really well. This was a huge change for me: I withdrew. I was thinking big thoughts and wanted to be left alone except for my inner circle of women friends.

I am needing to re-enter the world of the communicative, but tentatively. I cannot be totally authentic and share my heart on this blog, because it is a public blog. So I am trying to figure out what to say here in this space. Sticking to my blogging schedule will probably help.
I am the sort of person who strives to be authentic, genuine, without pretense. I don't have the emotional energy to make polite conversation much these days because of the heavy things I am thinking.
But I am here. And I want to write. So stay tuned. Thanks for sticking with me!

One of my very favorite blog layout/background sites is called Simply Fabulous Blogger Templates . The creative force behind this site is a woman named Lena. She and her family are in the process of adopting, and she is using premade blogger templates as a way to raise money to afford adoption. I have used many of her free templates in the past, but decided that I wanted to support her adoption right now. Please check out her website, her great talent and thoughtful creativity, and read about her Premades For a Purpose!
