They say time flies when you’re having fun, and while this is true, it’s also true when times are tough. I haven’t been able to blog nearly as much as I want to in the last couple of years, in large part due to getting my first Masters Degree, and then going back for my second. Truth is though, I miss it. I miss blogging and sharing photos, being out in nature, and just having time to write. I want to try to do better at blogging, to squeeze in a few minutes here and there if at all possible.
It’s hard to believe we’re in 2019 already. Ben and I have been married for 7 years now. The last few years, Ben’s health has declined as he suffers from peripheral neuropathy and they do not yet know the cause. We’ve been through a lot in our 7 years of marriage, but it has made us stronger as a couple and more in love every day.
Life has a way of taking you places you’d never thought you’d go, of teaching you lessons you never knew you needed to learn. If there’s anything I’ve learned, it’s that nothing stays the same except change. As much as we want it to, everything changes in this world. We learn, we grow stronger, we move forward even when it’s tough.
I’m still writing, more than I ever used to, even though I have yet to have a book published. It’s easy to talk about publishing books, to think about having a book completed in a year, send it out, get it published. It’s much harder when it actually comes down to it, especially when that book turns into two, and the three, and then a series that really can’t be easily published until it’s completed as a series. But still, I keep pushing forward, knowing that one day, one word at a time, it will be finished.
I will end for now with one of my favorite songs, Jericho sung by Aaron Boyd.
