I knew my hiatus from blogging had gone on far too long when my husband showed up with a new laptop yesterday and said he hoped it would encourage me to increase my activity on Pop Rocks for Breakfast.
He's just that kind of guy. And he knows that amidst all the busy-ness of being Me, and being his Wife, and being ChellBell's Mom, and being hopelessly determined to accomplish more in every given day than realistically possible, I love to write. And I miss it.
Thanks sweetie, for my new laptop. But thanks, sweetie, even more, for knowing what inspires me and encouraging me to do it.
Speaking of inspired, I just found this blog and wanted to pass on some words that gave me inspiration-induced goose bumps.
"I think the beauty of twinkle lights is the perfect metaphor for joy.
Joy is not a constant. It comes to us in moments - often ordinary moments. Sometimes we miss out on the bursts of joy because we're too busy chasing down the extraordinary moments. Other times we're so afraid of the dark that we don't dare let ourselves enjoy the light.
A joyful life is not a floodlight of joy. That would eventually become unbearable.
I believe a joyful life is made up of joyful moments gracefully strung together by trust, gratitude, and inspiration."
Happy Friday, friends. I hope we meet back here again very soon.
