It’s been a while since I’ve written.
While I intended to take a short break after finishing up the “One Month Journey”, I did not intend for it to be this long. However, shortly after we finished the journey, I was emotionally wrapped up in the physical well-being of my beloved grandmother who was admitted into the hospital.
One of these days, I’ll write a longer post about my grandmother and try to express with words, why she meant so much to me and what I have learned from her. And there is so much I have learned.
If you happen to keep up with me on social media. You probably already know that I lost my grandmother a few weeks ago. So, a brief blogging break turned into a full month of no writing.
And I have to be honest. I don’t feel much like writing now.
But I’m doing it anyway – for a variety of reasons – the most of important of which is directly related to my sweet “Two Mama”.
Even though she is no longer with me on this earth. I will forever have her words.
I have her words from every birthday card she sent (and she never missed a birthday for me or any of my children). I have her words in the letter she wrote to me five years ago telling me how much I meant to her, and I have her words on the back of my baby pictures letting me know her thoughts to me.
I’ve already written once about my reasons for blogging and why I think that writing, in whatever form is so important and valuable to you, those you love, and others who can benefit from the thoughts you have and the lessons you are learning as you journey through this life.
Because I have been personally reminded of the importance of words, I am blogging again. Because whether or not I’m “feeling it”, my grandmother’s commitment to her own words has inspired me to continue to share. Her words where not about her. They were about me. For me. A blessing to me.
And that’s words are. Once they pass our lips or cross our pens, they are not just for us. They then become an avenue by which we can bless, teach, minister, and encourage others.
Words can give life… even when we are not present to share those words in person.
Thanks “Two” for the lesson.
Looking forward to sharing more lessons with you this week via blogs and some freebies that I hope will help you on your journey.
See you soon 🙂
