Something’s Gotta Give

I’m not a blogger who has amassed a large following, but I imagine that if I were, readers might wonder what happened if I suddenly disappeared. Did I die? Did tragedy strike? Perhaps an explanation can’t always be given in such instances.

I feel that I’ve lost sight of who I am, what I’m doing, and how to be a good parent to seven very deserving children. I’m failing them and myself.

So I don’t know when or if I’ll be back, but a part of me will truly miss this blog and the bloggies I follow. Hopefully, my retreat from things such as social media and distractions from the here and now, will help in my quest to regain my focus…
