Try as I might, there has been no inspiration for blog posts to be found around here. I have never been a daily blogger, but I marvel at those of you who are. I marvel at your ability to come up with "fresh material" on a daily basis. It occurred to me this morning that I probably should change my post as the snowstorm on my last post is long gone.
Sisters are the Brightest Blossoms in Life's Garden of Light
I considered posting that I was taking a blog break or possibly ending my blogging days.
Not sure why, but the things I normally blog about suddenly seemed kind of silly to me.
To be honest, I sometimes even feel guilty about it. I suppose that sounds strange, but this is why ...
The angel shown in my photos today is a gift I bought to send my sister. It is one of the small things I can do to let her know I am thinking of her. If you are new here you can read about what happened to my sister here.
Her year has not gotten off to a good start. A fall, a hospital stay, a blood clot discovered, another hospital stay.
When I last called her she was trying so hard to tell me something. Unfortunately her speech has not been recovered enough for me to understand what she was saying. I sensed her frustration and felt soo bad.
I continue to call, send cards & letters and pray for her.
Yesterday as we watched the Super Bowl, I was flooded with memories of the many times she would host a family Super Bowl party. Our husbands and sons are all huge sports fans. She had a real gift for making it a fun time for all of us.
Knowing what each day is like for my sister and her family ...
taking pictures of knick knacks, white bathrooms, cups of coffee, etc. sometimes feels a bit insignificant in the scheme of things.
However, the main reason I got involved in blogging was to be given a reprieve from life's more difficult moments. So in the end I guess that's a good thing, not something to feel guilty about. What do you think?
