Oh, my. Has it really been that long since I've posted on my blog? I guess it has, hasn't it. I admit, on many evenings over the last few months I've walked past my computer and thought about blogging (kind of like the scene in "You've Got Mail" when Tom Hanks keeps peeking in at the computer on his desk :).....but for some reason I just couldn't put any thoughts together. For a while I was spending more time posting breast cancer updates on Caringbridge. But things have slowed down, and I don't have much new to report on the medical end, thankfully. To be honest, I haven't really been sure what to say. I think that my brain has been in kind of a slow-motion phase...like it's been on an adrenaline rush for a year and finally has a chance to relax. The last year has been cause for quite a bit of reflection, and I just haven't been sure what to blog about, or how or even why! My heart is so full of thoughts, feelings, convictions, intimacies, comforts, challenges, hurts, and joys......that sometimes it feels like it's going to burst, yet I can't begin to put it all into words. Hmmmm, I wonder....maybe I'm not supposed to? Still, in some ways I feel like blogging and reading blogs can be the equivalent to a good late night heart-to-heart with a friend (only we have to do it over the internet because Starbucks closes at 11, and most heart-to-hearts happen well into the wee hours of the morning as we all know :). So I just wanted to let anyone who may have been wondering if was ever going to update this thing (that's you, Mom :) know that I haven't given up.....I'm just letting the dust of the last year settle and the fog clear from my chemical-flooded brain....and I'm looking forward to joining in the sharing of thoughts, updates, stories, and journeys again soon.
