Perhaps that is why some of us blog. We like to write, we like to keep record of certain things and certain dates.
I am/was in a blogging funk. For an half a year or more I did not know why I blog. Could not even think what to write. What was the point of writing, of sharing. It all kind of depressed me.
And in my case, I did not even know WHERE to write. Yes, I have a blog here AND also on Xanga. So I find myself hopping back and fourth writing a little here and a little there. Confusing? A little.
Yesterday I was reading a little from those writings/blogs of the past...and I realized again why it's SO good to record. I forget SO EASILY those good things. In the busy-ness of life, and in the harder more stressful times we forget that EVERY day has blessings. Small things and sometimes even BIG things happen to us in the middle of the day...things to take note of and be ever so thankful for in our hearts.
When I was 'back' reading, I was like -
OH yeah, that DID happen, didn't it? And WOW... my girls have changed so much. And the kitchen used to be that color? And so on and so on! :) And then I KNEW that I wanted to 'journal' again and record life. Sometimes the good comes with the bad...such is life. But I want to look back and REMEMBER. I want to live fully and write about it... thus making a way to help me remember!
So here is to my journaling! I am not a 'professional blogger' and sometimes I can hardly get my thoughts out on paper and formed into words...but with God's grace I will try to record the blessings that He has given me...the things (and people) that He has meant for me to enjoy.
