I’ve been blogging for 6 years now… our blog chronicled moves, our family zoo, passing of loved ones, seeing our girls for the first time, traveling to Ethiopia and other locales, and most importantly – 3.5 years of life with our girls. Three weeks ago, the blog imploded and we lost it all.
It shouldn’t be a big deal; but it was. We lost a journal of our family, our friends, and our girls growing up. I tried everything I could for a few weeks to recover it. The memories, the pictures and the thoughts. But it wasn’t to be.
I wasn’t sure if I should still keep blogging. After all, it’s work. Taking pictures, writing, editing. But I enjoy it. So finally I asked my girls. “Sugar” and “Spice” were very sad that I couldn’t get that journal back… they liked knowing that there was a record. But they asked me to keep blogging anyway – to show Nona and the rest of their family what they are doing. And to start that journal anew.
So I’m letting go – of those 6 years. but I’m also looking forward to many more. After all… life is in the moment. Let’s share it.
