It’s been a long season of no blogging…and I cannot explain why. I have been busy, yes, but that’s not it. I think I was just too lazy to write anything, and when I did have the enthusiasm I spent it on other things.
But, I have missed it. I have missed it because I miss my Orthodox connections and friends. I did not realize how much of a part of my life you all were…all you wonderful Orthodox bloggers. I visit your sites from time to time, but I have not participated in the network.
It’s made me really think of the wonderful support we are for each other. Orthodox life is difficult when we try to go at it alone, and sometimes we do not find the kind of support we need in our parishes. Mostly I am speaking of homeschooling, but the support also extends to the everyday life of an Orthodox family that is seeking to live the faith in the home. I have missed the support I received from writing here regularly.
I hope I can reestablish the habit of blogging…because now more than ever I feel a kind of distraction here in the outside world that scares me. Many of my friends have confessed the same thing…a strong distraction. Somehow I think blogging in a group of Orthodox women kept me centered and focused, at least focused on different things, good things.
Thank you for reading my blog….thank you for commenting…and thank you for being my blogging friends. I have missed you dearly.
