Blogging

Blogging has been a great resource for me to express my opinion, think out my voice, record my experiences and simply share what's in my heart. I feel rewarded in doing it just for myself and added thrill thinking that someone else might read it and have feelings or experience that could build upon my own. But let's talk about YOU and your blogging. I feel like I am immersed in great novels as I read your blogs. I find myself anticipating the next chapter of your lives. I feel such emotions through your sharings from hysteric laughter to intense sorrow. Always you make me reflect on how I can be better and how I can enjoy my days more. I am so thankful to have been able to catch up with old friends and learn more about the new ones. It is fantastic to have such a way to get to know people I admire, since we all have limited time in our days, we can still have a sense that we are a part of each others lives. I just want to thank you for the efforts, big or small, you put into sharing your lives with me. I really feel inspired by you and know that anything that can be so uplifting comes from Heaven.

One of my dear and avid blog checking friends asked me what has happened to my nearly daily updates. Well, for the two of you out there who check my blog longing to see what I had to share today, I hope you'll forgive me for a bit. We are working out a new schedule in our family and I am trying to be more productive with my evenings. Since Spence teaches early morning seminary and the only time I get the Internet is at night when he is home, I have been known to stay up (too late) blogging. I feel maybe my days had been suffering a bit and I have been challenging myself to try and go to bed early and rise with my hubby. No, have no fear, I am not leaving the blogging realm. I just need to readjust and balance out my life a little bit and make sure I am obligated to the most important priorities. Since blogging has been such a great way for me to feel the spirit, use my mind and expression, reflect upon my simple life, and learn so much from you- I will definitely continue. But for the next few weeks (Spencer has spring break and we have some little family projects and outings we're trying to plan) my posts may be more sparse than frequent.

I hope you'll join me again soon- post life balancing break. And as always, I look forward to your next chapters. Carry on!

You know, I love those "readjusting" times in life when you feel like you're really getting back on track. I did some of that at the beginning of the year and it felt so great! I always love to read your blog, but some things are more important than computer time. My favorite quote right now is: "The hardest thing on earth is choosing what matters" from "The Secret Life of Bees." Kudos to you for choosing what really matters in your life!

Oh--and judging from how many people leave comments on here--there are a LOT more than two readers! :)

Sara, Sara, Sara, you crack me up! I happen to be one of those who eagerly await your next posting (and as Amanda said, I'm sure there are more than 2 of us!). But lately, I too have felt an urge to be more productive with my time (especially during the day). I can thoroughly appreciate where you're coming from! I'll do my best to update the most important stuff (I want to blurg my blog eventually), and I look forward to your posts - whenever they come.
You're wonderful! Love you!

Absolutely there are more than two reading your blog!

Hey, take your time. Enjoy your husband. That's what's most important.

Hugs!

Rebecca said...

I'm right with ya. Blogging is a thing that can take up so much time if we let it. Yeah I think we can easily say 7 or 8 people at the very least await reading your blogs! ;)

Sara...I LOVE your blog :) I also empathize the "readjusting" bug because of early morning seminary. (I am sure that it is even harder to balance what precious time we do have with 2 kids :) I understand that family comes first.. with that said..I will still anticipate seeing your blogs, because they uplift, inspire, and humble me :) What a gift it has been to know you for so many years, and a blessing that I have been able to "reunite" with such a good buddy through blogging :)LOVES..LOVES..LOVES!!

It seems as though "readjusting" how we spend our time has been wide-spread. That is something I'm also trying to do. I too enjoy reading your blog and enjoy your very positive attitude that shines through your writing.

Sally said...

Oh...you're so good, my friend. Have a nice break. :)

Ashley said...

I too constantly await your next blog post! You're such an inspiration! Miss you Sara!

Paula said...

Don't be silly! There are WAY more than just two people reading your blog! I actually find that Ryan's nap time is the best time for blogging. :-)
