I have to admit, when I started this whole blogging thing, I knew it was going to be ton of work. Getting my blog up and running with all the content I wanted to include seemed to be a never ending project. But you see, I thought that if I could just get all of the main content done, the actual blogging would be easy. Ha! Boy, was I wrong!
I constantly find myself thinking, “I am a terrible blogger. I am disappointing my readers by not posting often enough.” I think it is safe to say that I am probably accurate on these assumptions. However, for someone who needs absolute quiet in order to get her thoughts written down in a reader friendly manner, my house does not provide a conducive environment to do said task. With a less than fun pregnancy taking every ounce of my energy and a toddler who would much rather hang out about an inch away from mommy no matter where mommy is, makes writing difficult to say the least. Now factor in the sassy pre-teen boy who as of late, simply must press every one of his mothers hot buttons (oh the eye-rolling that has taken place in my home has reached epic proportions)! So, as you can guess, what my wonderful and amazing readers get are the leftovers: one frazzled mama. What am I to do with a bunch of fabulously bored readers with nothing new to read?
Shall I post about how my heart is broken for Owen and all the other children in Russia who won’t get the opportunity to have a family here in the U.S.? Or shall I scream about how angry I am that children who are in dire need will be denied the possibility of a family here, making their chances of being adopted at all very low if at all?
Like this beautiful creature. How can they tell her “no”. This sweet thing has gone from this:
In less than a year. Little Lina has wasted away. She will be 2 years old in June.
My heart is breaking for her, for all of them. So many faces fading away into oblivion it seems (big sigh).
Nope, I just can’t think about that now. It tears me up, but all I can do is pray. I can whine, and stomp my feet, but that won’t do any good. Only God can fix this.
So what shall I blog then?
I know – I will ask you all a question or two.
Has the information on my blog done anything positive for any of you?
Has the information on my blog opened any eyes?
Yes, I know the sections are lengthy. But truly, I need your thoughts.
I ask these things because I need to know if what God has asked me to do is doing the good that I hoped it would.
Is there any information I should add to my content on here?
Constructive criticism is good, however I do ask that when responding, all comments remain kindly worded. Thank you!
I appreciate everyone’s feedback!
