I owe you this letter. It's been a very long time coming, to the point where we are now almost strangers, waving at each other as we walk past and asking "how are you?" but not actually stopping to hear the response.
You might have seen me popping around on Facebook, being all non-committal. Things got a little crazy after our Christmas LOVE BOMBs, I had two little girls to look after, we moved homes, excuses excuses.
But really, and I told you ladies this from the start, I am only here doing what I do because I believe God wanted me to. And then at the start of the year, I felt that calling lift, and I felt like I needed to focus on my family, on settling our girls into life, on looking after my own self, on developing some of my hobbies for my own sanity, on loving on my husband, making some new friends, going deeper with God and learning more about Him and His grace.
And so that's what I did, and it's been great! Sure, I have still been responding to the occassional Sisterhood request - they are still out there people! LOVE BOMBs have been departing these places at random intervals, sent with love, on your behalf. (we are now officially out of love bomb stock!)
But I haven't been able to truly commit to The Sisterhood, but I also haven't been able to say good bye either. Something has kept us together, and thats okay.
So here I am, finally plugging in. My head is just bobbing out of this "I've got two crazy little girls who keep me really busy" fog, and you are all swimming into focus again.
How are you going out there? Has life and people been treating you well? Are you in a good space? Are things tough right now? I'd love to hear from you.
I'll write another post in the not so distant future about what my dreams are for The Sisterhood (future Ninja bakes etc etc), but for now I thought I should just drop in and show my face and say hi.
This is my little family, on Katies 1'st birthday in June (photo above). Wow, that was 2 months ago already! Time is flying! Anyway, it's our most recent photo together, so I thought you might like to see where we are at now.
And hay, if you haven't stuck around waiting, if you've gone and given up on us, that's okay too. But you'll hear from me soon if you're still around :)
Much love, always.
