I've tried. I've really, really tried to keep up the blog this year, but I just can't.
To be completely honest, I'm in so much inner turmoil right now that most days it takes most of my focus and energy to just get through the day. And whatever additional focus I do have needs to be spent on other things than blogging. Let's face it, I wasn't cranking out winners this year anyway.
The Byrds told us (and so did the Bible, actually) that there is a season for everything. As much as I wanted to fit writing into this season of my life, I've realized that it's not to be. Maybe at some point in the future I'll be in a place to pick it up again. But I've decided not to force it for the next 18 days and make myself sick over it.
I feel sad. I feel like I'm letting myself down, as well as you, my very few but faithful readers. I'm actually tearing up a little as I write this. I feel like I've failed. But I also know that I need to try and let myself off the hook.
I wish you all a wonderful Thanksgiving and hope that you're able to spend time with those you love.
Until I return...
Love to you all.
