When I logged on today I saw this staring me in the face, "Last post on Dec 27th."
A few months ago, I would have rushed head long into feelings of guilt and condemnation for not keeping you guys in the loop, but that was 3 months ago. I have been lost in the world of Twitter and Instagram, thanks to Heather Leblanc and her iPhone donation! (Please look me up on FaceBook, where I post pictures via Instagram on a regular basis.)
One thing I have noticed since the iPhone appeared in my hand is that things these days are all about the "now." Sending a picture about what is happening now. Tweeting something someone just said. After a few minutes pass that event, or quote, or picture loses it's appeal. So if you don't send it right then...it just fades into the background of your life; it becomes a part of the tapestry.
Don't get me wrong...I love, love, love being able to send a photo to all my lovely Stateside counterparts. It is thrilling, and I hope you guys love receiving them via whichever social network I appear on. BUT...I miss the blog. I miss taking the time to chew on something for a few minutes. I miss dwelling...savoring.
So many things have happened in the way of married life on the mission field. I can't believe Mark and I are working on our 8th month of marital bliss. I can't believe it is already March and the season of activity and groups is well underway. I can't believe how different this year is from all of the rest. I keep thinking that I will get a handle on it at some point...but just as I think I've got it, POOF there's a curve ball.
Here's to living on the edge. Here's to the fast paced lifestyle of juggling groups, practitioners, interns and marriage. BUT...I promise not to forget about the blog-sphere. I don't want my life to be a camera roll of unsent pictures. Nope. We must take time to work things out on paper...or a computer screen, lol.
Love you guys!
