To everything there is a season

To everything there is a season,
A time for every purpose under Heaven:
A time to be born,
And a time to die;

A time to plant,
And a time to pluck what is planted;
A time to kill,
And a time to heal;

A time to break down,
And a time to build up;
A time to weep,
And a time to laugh;

A time to mourn,
And a time to dance;
A time to cast away stones,
And a time to gather stones;

A time to embrace,
And a time to refrain from embracing;
A time to gain,
And a time to lose;

A time to keep,
And a time to throw away;
A time to tear,
And a time to sew;

A time to keep silence,
And a time to speak,
A time to love,
And a time to hate;

A time of war,
And a time of peace.

Ecclesiastes 3:1-8

8 months of silence

So how do you start writing again after 8 months of silence?

I don't know the answer to that yet.
In my head I have tried to come up with clever ways of announcing that I'm back, but truth be told I feel neither clever nor am I sure that I'll be back. Writing a blog was such an outlet for me to express myself. I truly enjoyed sitting down at the end of the day sharing my thoughts and the things that brought me joy. But as we entered the new year I found myself feeling completely and utterly empty. Just the thought of writing down anything was overwhelming. I couldn't even open my blog to take a look at the comments. Life is sometimes so demanding that the things you used to love become a chore. And I couldn't handle any more chores. So I quit!

Today life is even more demanding. For reasons that I might share later my heart is broken and I feel even more empty than ever. And for some odd reason the thought of writing again has started to haunt me at night when I should be sleeping. So here I am. I don't know for how long or if I'll be able to do this. But at least the silence is broken

Hot woman in a cold place

I'm back in Norway after our cruise. Unfortunately I have gotten a terrible flue that has put me in bed for a week. Today the fever has peeked at 104.9 and I feel quite exhausted and HOT! My hubby is away and my awesome 12 year old is taking very good care of me. Outside it is MINUS 10 degrees Fahrenheit and I'm grateful my home is warm and comfortable. I'm hoping to find my bloginspiration soon. Until then: take care and be blessed y'all (hey...I used to live in Tulsa!)

I took this photo out my kitchen window today before I crashed on our couch. It is quite beautiful here!
