The word "fallow" can mean: "the tilling of land without sowing it for a season."
When I think about where I am in life right now, that word keeps coming to my mind. There are so many changes occurring right now, that it is hard for me to think that I am producing anything. I have so much on my mind and on my plate that I feel it leaves little room for anything else, (including this blog!) beyond taking care of my own family's needs beyond this point.
I am lying fallow for a season.
My oldest daughter started college in NYC a couple of weeks ago, and on the flip side, I am potty training. Talk about polar opposites!
We have bought a new home which is taking up a lot of time, getting it ready to move in.
I am taking each day as it comes, trying to process all this new information as it comes, and attend to the daily details of a life with five children and a husband, and all that entails.
Trying to give myself space to lie fallow and enjoy the quiet when I can.
I pray that my experiences will be able to be shared one day soon. I don't feel like I have much of a voice, now. I think for now, if the words come...great...but I would like to share a small bit of words, and many photos here for a bit.
MomHeart blog. I think that is all the brain cells I can muster at this point. :) In a couple of weeks I am headed to Denver, Colorado to meet with Sally Clarkson at her home, along with the other Mom Heart writers, for a much needed retreat. I am really looking forward to this time of sharing hearts, and being rejuvenated in my writing and just in *life*. What a gift that weekend will be.
As for now, sweet friends, I appreciate you coming to this space. It has and always will be an important place for me. My words will be few, but I will still be here. Blessings to you all.
