This Is It!

I have been gone WAY too long. I would love to give you a reason, but honestly, all I have are excuses - and not very good ones.

Years ago when I started this blog I was sure I'd be able to blog for years and years. But like most things in life, that didn't turn out how I expected. When I started blogging, I relied on Blogland for so many things. I read and read and read blogs and I wrote a few posts as well. I have no idea where the time came from. It seems now-a-days I'm so far behind I think I'm ahead! So many times, I have to shirk one priority just to accomplish another. It's life and I'm not complaining, I just am surprised how much time I spend blogging because now I can hardly find the time to pee!

Life has just sort of taken over. He-Man and I have settled into a comfortable "new" lifestyle that I can't even put a title to. It's better and....more than it used to be. We are closer and better than we used to be. We have had doors open that I didn't even know existed. Things are good. Really, really good.:)

Because of my extended absence from this little corner of Blogland, I am out of the loop. I know nothing about where bloggers are, what they're posting about, or what is going on. There are things I miss. The people, the bloggers - oh goodness - there are some amazing people out there. But at the end of the day, how well do we really know the blogger? I thought I'd gotten to "know" a few, but time has proven I didn't know what I thought I knew. And that's ok. It's not that it's bad, it's just different.

I will forever be grateful to the specific corner of Blogland and for all those who helped me on my way. For all the comments, posts, emails, encouragement, the soft words, the strong words - all of it. It all added to the changes in my life that has brought on the contentment that I now have. I had hoped that I'd be able to pass it forward and help others as I've been helped. But alas, that is going to happen.

So this is it. It's time to say good-bye. Thank you all, from the bottom of my heart!

  9. Sarah,
    I know exactly where you are coming from, I have been pretty out of it too. Just isn't such a high priority anymore.
    I wish you guys well!


  10. Hi Sarah, :) I agree, it is good to hear from you! It is wonderful to hear that you are in such a great place with He-Man, and that life is busy, and treating you well.

    Sorry to be losing you around here, but I understand too! Wishing you all the best moving forward. I still remember reading, so long ago, about your running journey, and feeling so proud of your accomplishments! Hope that you are proud too! Take good care! All the best,

  11. Saying thank you for a note is great advice for life, not just . A note is a gift. It is one of the key ways we can grow as humans.
