Today the rain moved in, and just as the weather and the seasons change, so does life. I remember how my father would say "life is tedious" and yes, it can be very tedious at times. It can be so tiresome that you wonder where to go to say I give. There are times in our lives that we wonder how we will put one foot in front of the other in order to get us past what is happening.
Somehow we do manage to put one foot in front of the other. We plan how to get through the tough times. We move forward and we make changes. One of those changes is that Jen at The Light Laughed and I decided to end our Facebook group. We loved meeting everyone, but it was time to move on.
Jen has a wonderful new endeavor going. She has launched a new online magazine called Rural, and has just published her first issue. It is nothing short of delicious and you can see it here. I am so happy for her.
I am going to take a more active roll in contributing to At The Women's Room. It is a place for women. A place where we can hang out and talk about things that affect all of us. Good things and bad things. My heart has always been filled with the love of women's issues and so this is the perfect spot for me. We have some wonderful contributors so I hope you will come over and join us.
I would love to say that the issues that have been affecting my family are resolved, but unfortunately they aren't. However, I know that each moment that we live is written down in the book of our lives and so it is important to give as much as we can to each day. I am trying to remain flexible with my plans so that I can be where it is best for me and for my family. I know that someday when the last chapter of that book is written, what will have mattered most is the time spent with those that I love and knowing that I have had a life well lived.
So ho hum, yes it is raining today, but I am sitting here with pen and paper taking notes and making plans.
I hope the rest of your weekend is wonderful.
