That is a GREAT question. Where HAVE I been? My last published blog was April 11, 2017, which was 353 days ago. Wow. Let me first start by saying I did not take a trip to space. I did not set out to discover if the world is flat then fall off the edge. Nor did I crawl into a hole and hibernate for the last year. In fact, I have been right here in Salt Lake City living life and discovering more and more what it means to learn how to be. But over the course of the year I have done some traveling to see family and friends, and in those travels, I've had moments of great clarity. I love clarity, don't you?
Imagine someone sitting in a staff meeting who missed the last three minutes of discussion because they fell asleep with their eyes open. And it's not that the meeting is boring, it's because they only got four hours of sleep the night before. Can you relate? I certainly can.
Many a time I have been at work and barely able to keep my eyes open. This is why caffeine was invented if you ask me. But why am I so tired? Well, perhaps a look at the evening before could be most telling.
Throughout these pages you will read my story. Tales of happiness, sadness, God's grace and mercy, and all with a touch of humor.
Everything was all set. Ken and I were going to cook dinner for our house guest on a Sunday evening. Simple. Easy. Casual. Just the three of us. Then three became seven.
My husband asked if we could invite a good friend of us all, her husband, and daughter over to dinner as well. My first response: no. I couldn't wrap my head around having a dinner party for six. All the excuses for why I couldn't host six people were racing through my mind.
But then I stopped myself and started figuring out how to make it happen.
