It was our big guy's birthday yesterday. 11... Seriously, how can that be?!!! But I digress...
I wanted to update my photo on FB to a baby picture of him, but I couldn't find one one my lap top. After wracking my brain trying to think where I can find a baby picture of him on the computer, it occurred to me to check old blog posts.
As I came to this blog, it was like rediscovering an old friend. I began reading old posts and remembering events and feelings that I had forgotten.
But what really hit me was, I used to love to blog! I loved writing about silly things, serious things, painful things and frivolous things. I would look forward to the rare comments - but it wasn't instant gratification like on FB when someone hits a 'like button'. The real gratification was in getting whatever I was going through out of me and into written words. I'm much more likely to really express myself here than on FB. I can be more.... me.
What I discovered yesterday is that, I miss this. I miss blogging. I miss just being, The Lady of the House Speaking. I have things to say; even if they're not important to anyone but me.
So blog, I'm coming back. I've missed you!
