Hello from the Olde Shed.
It's been so long since I've written here.
So much time has passed.
I don't even know where to begin...so
I'll just write into the wild blue yonder.
Beyond those trees is the potting shed
and I'm waving to "you."
Yep, if you're reading this;
then that means I'm wavin to
-- So alot has happened since I last blogged.
Really didn't "fall" off the face of the earth but it's been a lonnnnnng quiet spell for me.
Time spent seeking.....studying... reading,... studying.... more seeking...
learning... living....and hopefully growing some.
I'm entering a new phase of life and I'll be documenting and sharing the days
I've kinda wondered if I should start a new blog?
But ... this is home.
Where I belong.
Part of why I stopped writing was ... I got soured and began questioning things.
I was reading some very popular writers and I've shared a few of them here. I've even participated in some of their studies and challenges. But day in and day out it just seemed like
they have everything figured out? Also life always
appears so perfect? Well I can promise you... it is nothing like that here.
I have more questions than answers and life is far from perfect.
So I quit reading ... then quit writing... and began just seeking God more.
Alot of life rocked on.
Oh; and something else happened. ......
We got this seven pound little wonder very recently.
Our very first grandchild.
A grandgirl... named Blakelea.
Did you catch the lea part? :)
The kids blew me away when they said
they wanted the last part of her name spelled like mine.
Happysigh. I've felt an incredible connection since even before she was born.
Holding her now?... I can feel our hearts snc together.
I've been a little scared I won't lie.
Never had a girl before- ... and babies
well... let's just say the nursery duty at church... is NOT my thing.
But this sweet girl... she most definitely definitely is my thing!!!! xoxoxoxo
Not a problem whatsoever. Until her hair gets long... then we may need some lessons.
And that is an understatement. God have mercy.
This past week, I took baby and Momma to their first doctor appointments.
-And it was my first time watching Blakelea all alone.
You probably could have heard my heart pounding from ten miles away. lol
I was worried she'd start crying in the waiting room and I wouldn't know how to get her to stop!???
It's been over 30 years now since I had a baby, so I'm pretty rusty.
Michelle had a bottle ready for me just in case but the little angel-
she slept thee entire time! shewww.
All that worrying for nothin. :)
And this little girl is one of my prayers answered!!
-A dream come true.
So life's full of changes and
I'm finding myself turning this new page--
and entering a whole new phase,
Life as a middle-aged wife, mom, and grandma.
Been discovering what my gifts, talents and strengths are
and have a great desire to live life more intentionally.
Life is a gift.
Every day... and every
In the days to come, I plan on writing here
more like a journal.
Writing into the wild blue yonder.
God has crossed my path with so many people and new friends
through the open door of this shabby olde potting shed.
And I'm very thankful.
So here's to the next chapter of the
I invite you along...
May we share the journey...
Love, Leaon Mary
