My girls used to stick close to home. When my fourth child and first son, "The Boy" was old enough to ride his bike thru the neighborhood he'd disappear for what seemed like hours. I remember one day walking around to "the cul de sac" where I found his bike parked near the curb and him happily playing basketball. Happy to see that he was alright, I called him over and suggested that he stop by the house every once in a while, or call from the friends house to let me know he's "not dead or something". Since then, and now that he has a cell phone, he does call periodically to check in. In his usual "straight to the point" style, he'll call and say something like, "Mom, I'm not dead."
I'm just checking in to let you know that I'm not dead. : ) My blogging hasn't quite resumed like I'd hoped it would. I'm really dealing with some physical issues mostly as a result of Menopause. Creatively, it's been slow going. I'm keeping up with assignments and working still, and dealing with personal house and family stuff. One of these days I'm going to write a book about it. : ) I did manage to film a short coloring video when I was at the beach, but I haven't edited it yet. I have been coloring some new stamps, and if I can stay home long enough, I'll get some cards made. I'm hoping to have a stamping road trip in the next couple of weeks-- hopefully that will produce a few cards. : )
So hang in there with me, pray for me and I'll be back soon.
In the meantime, I'm still Choosing JOY, although some days, it's moment by moment. Be blessed. Jacki!!
