As much as I’d love for my everyday schedule to include hours and hours of writing, and only minute breaks to visit the Keurig or scavenge for a protein bar, that just isn’t the case. There are cars, and dogs, and millions of loads of laundry to be done. There are meals to be cooked (no, not everyone can survive on protein bars like I did for a month in Africa) and by default I am the chef. Such is my life. And I’m OK with this.
But, then there’s you, oh dear, dear reader. Wondering where I am when I fail to blog. Hoping I’ll come back soon–praying for my safe return. Musing on whether I’m actually writing these books I’ve committed to write.
Well, to ease your worried mind, I am and I will. I will finish these books. I will do it by the deadline. And, I will keep you in the loop. Cherilyn has pinned me down to at least one blog post a week. Although she has plenty to say on her own, she’d like me to check in and keep you appraised of my progress and my commitment. Both of which are strong.
I’m loving how our tour is coming together and I’m excited about seeing the places we are planning to go. But more importantly, I’m excited about meeting you! You, reader, are why we are here. Who are you? Where are you? What do you do and why do you love your life? What words are shaping your lives right now? How can we encourage you?
To write for yourself is a blessed gift you receive. But to share those words is your gift to others. I am preparing gifts for you that, in the process, are giving me joy as well. So here’s to the gift, and the true Giver of words, may they reach their destination in the perfect time.
