It's a Family Affair!

My commitment to myself was to get back to blogging so I was startled to say the least when I went to sign in and my blog looked as messy as my house! I couldn't remember how to update anything and I had to even think for  moment what my password was.  There was a time I blogged everyday and a "gang" of us "hung" out each morning "listening" to each other. (That's a lot of air quotes, if you are reading this out aloud!)

I miss those times and I have become nostalgic for a few other times as well. I, no longer have my own business and while I do miss some aspects of having my own business for the most part ...I am happy doing what I am doing now. There are times I miss working with my family very much, mostly because they were  great and are my actual family!

Last week while working an event, I saw a woman I worked with for 10 years, long before we started  our own business and I was moved almost to tears...I know all of the time that I worked there couldn't have been perfect...I was a full time working mother, so I was beyond stressed, busy, tired and guilty! But, there she was reminding me about herself and a group of people who were to me like family.

My Hubby and I have more changes in store for us, some we have chosen and others thrust upon us like a rogue wave at the beach.. I have come to believe that you can remember friends and family, whether it be your actual family, bloggy family, work family or former church family fondly while embracing the new changes...the alternative is a lot of disappointment! That's not how "my family" operates!

Yeah I get it...we just put our last in college and now is the time to revisit much of the things and people we let slip through the cracks...I think it is easy to pick up where we started when the bond is strong...blogging ..for me is like that too...I just took a very long break and now its fun to get back into it...!!Have a great day...

I hear you about embracing new changes. It can often bring on emotions that you never thought you'd see. (At least that's how it's been for me.) Love the new blog look.

Adjusting to change is truly challenging. I was a full time mom for too long, and when I started to work again, it was very difficult to balance everything. But after a while, it really gets better. And what's more exciting is the changes it brings to the entire family. I wish you all the best.

Oooh, so glad to see you back. And I emphasized the air quoted phrases as I was reading along. "I" really "did." hehe
