Where I Was

Have I ever mentioned my very favorite movie of all time is You've Got Mail?
If not, now you know!
I love the part where Joe Fox is trying to explain away in an email to Kathleen Kelly
  where he was
the night they were supposed to meet at the coffee shop. 
"I was in Vancouver...and the power went out....and the phones were out too....strangely enough?!"

Okay, well that's how I feel about last week. 
Like I have to come with some ridiculous excuse for not blogging since last Tuesday...
I don't have a wow story to share....just the truth. 

Blake's been sick, I've been thinking, and we've been really busy. 
Can you relate??
Sometimes in life we just have to give ourselves the permission to sit on the couch with our coughing little boy  and not feel guilty for napping when he does. 
It happens. We need sleep too!

Sometimes in life we have to give ourselves time. 
Time to figure out what it is that God's working on inside of us, 
what our hearts are feeling and our minds are thinking. 
Time to enjoy living life instead of viewing it from behind a camera lens.

Sometimes we just need a break. 

So that's where I've been...what I've been doing. 
I'll share more this week. 
But just so you know, I'm back...and I'm thankful for all of you who check in every day
to see what's up in our little world.
Your visits make me happy and your comments encourage my heart!

I completely relate Maureen! I hope that everyone is healthy in your house now, and I'm excited to hear more from you this week. Glad you're back, and glad for you that you were wise enough to be silent when you needed to be.
