I Used to Come Here A Lot

Hi. My name is Chel. This used to be a really cool hang out for me. Perhaps if you were to dig in the deep recesses of your mind, Blogger, you might remember me.

I used to write two and three, maybe even four times a week. Now it's been...well, a long time.

No, it's not you. It's me.

I happen to be in an insanely busy time right now. It's not that I don't want to come visit you, Blogger, it's just my time has not really been my own lately. I know, it hurts. It hurts me, too.

You have been so faithful to me in the past...even at 3 in the morning when I can't sleep...you've been there. I remember cuddling up in the big red chair, nestled under a throw blanket, listening to Frank Sinatra and pouring my heart out to you.

OH how I miss those days.

And then when my relief was complete...you had so many friends that you shared with me. I made such sweet, precious friends and I miss them dearly. Would you please tell them for me?

No, I can't stay. I really mustn't. Please understand. I long to be here with you, making that lovely rhythm of fingertips and keys...dancing our way around this crazy life. *sigh*

Oh I do hope that you will be patient, my dear Blogger, and not turn away. Wait for me...I will come back to you. Life has not been the same since I wandered away. But I promise to make amends...and make it up to you. Only don't walk away.

See you soon.

"It's not you....It's me."
Oh, you have the "let's take a break" lines down, girlfriend.
Too funny.
I don't have as much bloggy time as before either. I feel you.

We all have our seasons, and right now I'm in the same season as you. May the Lord equip us to do the work in front of us, and may He reenergize us for our ministries when the timing is right.

Blessings, Chel!

ahh yes! I do understand. I could have written that myself. It seems to be "the" theme around blog land...
My own daughter deleted her blog a couple of months ago and I didn't even know it! Now THAT is sad!
We will all be here when we can.
I've missed you and missed blogging.
