By your choice, I don't know who you are.
By my choice (and more accurately many lessons learned), I don't easily trust anyone.

However, you went from commenting regularly to not at all. Yes - some of your comments frustrate me, but I did read them - even if I didn't respond to all. If you want to keep commenting, I will promise to keep reading and to not delete the ones that really get under my skin.

I truly don't know who you are ... some one local or far away ... someone I see regularly - who sees me on the days when my tears are flowing, my kids are troublesome, my husband is short tempered.  Will I withdraw even more into myself? Maybe. It's January. A time that I tend to withdraw anyway.

It's 2011 - the journey continues ... we'll see where it takes us.

Thanks for a positive response! I went away because when you decided to delete my posts, I felt I was angering you on your private (not so much) sounding board. My goal was never to cause you more to deal with in a negative way, only to be a sounding board to life. Have you ever wondered why most people who chose to become hermits get so far removed from what society deems normal? I believe that it is because the thoughts and views from many keep us real and focused (and accountable). Personally, left to my thoughts and only my thoughts, I would be insane in a relatively short time span. A blog spot lets you voice your feelings, but responses keep you thinking and help keep all of us accountable to us and God. I'm praying we both grow through this venue.

oh, and before I leave this post. . .
talking with other women lets you know you aren't in the boat alone. Somedays I cry a lot because of my mounting pile of past hurts (letting go apparently isn't one of my strong suits either, forgiving enters the brain and gets watered down till it gets to the heart, help me God). Husbands tend to get grumpy and short as easily as we get teary-eyed (pray dear God my husband doesn't read this because I would never want to hurt his feelings). And kids can be, well, trying (but they also bring joy and love). Cherish the ups and downs with your kids at this age. They will seem minor compared to the ups and DOWNS of the teen and adult years. When all control is out of your hands and in the hands of God and loving them is the only thing you can do. Cherish the time at hand. It is the one thing you will never get back.

I never deleted any posts. 2 did go to the spam folder and were only recently discovered - and posted. See 12/13 for them.
