Can A Girl Change Her Mind?!

It was my mum's comment yesterday, "what about your friends how will they know what is going on?"  It got me thinking and made me realise that writing and sharing here no matter how difficult is a way of continuing to look outward.  Who knows maybe someone else going through a similar struggle might feel less alone?

  1. San,

    Of course a girl can change her mind! And I am glad you have. Oh yes, blogging connects us together so we can love and support each other through the difficult times and rejoice through the good ones. I am often tempted to turn inward and leave the public eye of the blogging world, but you are right: We have to look outwards. The inner light? It keeps shining even when we feel we are struggling through the dark. It shines out from you, dear San. Keep writing and sharing when you feel able. It will be okay. I am about to say a Rosary and will remember you, Dave and your family. With love and hugs xxx

  2. I'm so glad. I was catching up this morning and had to look at your last post. Oh, San - how hard for you. You have loved and worked so hard to keep everything- and what else would you do. I'm so sorry Dave's condition has changed, but glad you seem to be getting more support. You are so much in my thoughts and prayers. I've had similar thoughts about stopping, but the love and support I have found through the blog world, and social media have made such a huge difference to me. There are no rules about blogging- just share when and if you feel like it.

  3. This is wonderful news, San! Sometimes blogging gives you a new perspective and helps you to live with difficulties. Just putting it on "paper"and knowing that probably somebody is going to read it, can be a healing process. Even if there are no comments (because people are busy, have problems themselves or are tired) that does not mean that nobody cares.

    This lantern reminds me so much of the lanterns we made with my mother. She spent so much time with us doing crafts. She is very talented in that area. Very pretty!

    Now I have to make a green bean salad for church. We are having a pot luck today and we have to leave soon. Peter will play the organ today and needs to leave even earlier to practice with the cantor.

  4. Of course you can! I am so glad you have, you know I will always visit here whenever you post. Your lantern is beautiful San, it shines like your inner light. You have more inner strength than you realise. Holding your family together through illness is not easy especially when your health is not good either. You know where I am :)

  5. I'm really glad to hear you will continue writing San, because I would have missed your voice and I would have wondered how you all were faring. But I hope that blogging isn't a stresser for you. If it is, there is no guilt over stepping away for a time or for good! Sometime, all we need is a little breathing room in our lives .... Blogging can provide that, but it can also sometimes feels constricting. {{hugs}} and prays for you as always.

    1. Yes, you echoed my mum's words, it is important to keep connections going and it was only when I hit publish on the last post that i realised just how much i would miss dear friends like yourself popping by. I guess it is the nearest thing we get to tea and a chat. Be assured you are in my prayers xx

  6. Tea and a chat . . . yes, San, that's what it's like! How fortunate I am to have met you and Eva in cyberspace. God truly works in mysterious ways. I'm glad you will continue to post about your days. I do love to peek in :) I also know how busy we can get and it's not always easy to sit down and post, but I also find that I miss my cyber friends when too much time has gone by! Our world has truly changed. I enjoy snail mail, but I also depend on the personal internet connections that have been made. We live in a busy world :) I'm glad you will continue to reach out through your blog and that I can continue to see Pip and Benedict's beautiful smiles and a bit of their days :) (and yours too!). Please give Dave our love. You are always in our thoughts and prayers. xoxo, Dorina
