I am still here. Barely.
To be honest, I am not doing so well with my Christmas preparations. There are a lot of things that have kept me from the computer pretty much since Thanksgiving, and I have been surprised to find that dropping out has felt good.
I've missed catching up with you all at my regular haunts, but not much else. That's got to be some kind of sign.
There's just so much that I need to notice right now. There are so many changes swirling around us as a family, both good and painful.
But this season is all about waiting. Waiting in joyful hope, no less, and that's what I'm striving to do. Bear with me, my friends.
