Although I am always writing in my head, mommyhood is keeping me quite busy (but, fortunately, not less reflective).
My hands are unable to reach the keyboard...my fingers are unable to jot a note on a Post-It...all because they're so tied up holding and caring for my precious son Liam!
I am LOVING being Liam's mother and all that the vocation entails, but I am adjusting to the fact that not every memory we experience together can be written about.
Not every thought that I think can be archived for future reference and reminiscence.
It makes me sad to think that some things might be forgotten, but I am grateful to be in this new phase of my life. I am grateful for life to be so FULL of beautiful events that archiving it all becomes impossible. And so I am being selective, working on developing my memory, trying to remember tiny details, internalizing the life lessons that God gives me, and hoping that I store them well for retrieval later on.
And I like to retrieve frequently. I'm a sentimental girl. I look back often -- but look ahead just as much. :)
So instead, if you haven't noticed, my blog will probably be more photos than reflective writing. But that's OK! A picture is worth a thousand words.
P.S. Guess how many hours it took for me to complete this blog posting. Eight!
