What Happened That Year?

Well, it has been a long time since I wrote anything. I almost didn't even remember how to sign in. Last night as Jeff and I were talking I told him that I didn't feel the need to blog right now. I had rationalized and felt that I was actually telling the truth. You see, I thought, I am busy, I have four little kids, a house, a calling, a busy husband blah blah blah. I just thought I didn't need another thing to worry about. It wasn't that important.

Until this morning as I was sweeping the floor and thought to myself. What did we do Christmas 2006? I racked my brain and could not for the life of me remember that Christmas. I didn't know if we had traveled or not and what the kids looked like that year. I didn't know how I had felt or what activities we had done. I could have found pictures somewhere, but I just looked back in the archives of my blog and I found everything. Cute pictures of the kids, stories of what we did, accounts of people we saw. It all came flooding back to me. I looked back at a friends' blog last night who told me about a picture of me holding her newborn in the hospital. I said, I don't think I have seen that picture and she told me to look on her blog. I went back to 2008 on her blog and sure enough there was that picture. I guess it is not the blog that is important but my thoughts that are.

I read through some of my posts this morning and saw that I don't know how to write eloquent poetry like so many out there. I sometimes laugh at how lame I sound sometimes. But, I do like to think about what our lives were like then and it makes me happy. So, I am back. I may not have the best pictures or the funniest stories but at least I will remember what we did for Christmas.
