Dear Friends and Blog Followers,
I have decided I've been messing around with a new blog long enough. Since I do not have my own computer with my collection of photos and inspirational quotes I was getting nowhere with a design I liked. Thus I made a 2nd decision - to come back to the place I started and feel comfortable - with a few changes!
The first and most evident change is the color. It is pink isn't it? Pepto-Bismal pink! According to my friend Dani who knows about these things, pink is the color associated with unconditional love. Since I've been having some difficulty lately in the feeling lovable department, Dani suggested I surround myself in pink. Pink is not a color I would normally choose for myself but I decided to try it. I wore a pink sweater to church last week and was surprised at the number of comments I got on how pretty I looked. Pretty in pink, hmmmm.
This blog is where I come to open myself up, to be vulnerable. It makes sense, then, to have it be a place of unconditional love for the person who writes it and the people who read it. Stepping out my blue and green comfort zone I painted my blog pink.
Along with the color I added some verbiage to the sidebars. As is often the case I may have gotten a little long winded. That might have to do with the fact that I haven't been writing for a few weeks and given the chance I let the muse loose!
Now about my computer. It still lies in a coma awaiting for technical attention. Son of Sweetie seems to think he can bring it back to life with a new hard drive. However, my computer woes do not sit at the top of his priority list. I understand that and am working on perfecting the virtue of patience. I don't guess there is any way of knowing what caused the problem(s). I've come to the conclusion it makes very little difference. I stand at the proverbial crossroads, either we make the thing work or give it a proper burial. I'll be okay with whatever happens.
In the mean time I've been using my father's computer to check my email and others' blogs. It does not appear to be infected. Last night I came back to this blog and noticed several comments on my last two posts. My heart did the happy dance. I felt loved and missed. Right there and then I decided to give up working on a new blog and came home where I belong.
Thanks to all of you who have stayed with me and encouraged me to keep writing. I see now how important it is to my peace of mind to have a place I can run to and speak (or write as the case may be) my truth.
