Our week in pictures and a few words to go them~
My thought for the week: Listening to bloggers having angst about their blog, is on my top 10 list of pet peeves. So I’m walking a fine line here, when I say I’ve had doubts from time to time about having my own blog. The world of personal blogs can be so warped, and unhealthy; where we all read about each other’s lives though a very small, but public window. I see the subtle and erosive effects this can have on my own mind, and the way it can distort reality; not only in the way I see my own life but lives of other woman and mothers. Am I contributing to the “my life is better than your life” mentality that plagues social media? When thoughts like this begin to roll around in my brain I ask myself, “Is it time to set this down and walk away?”
But at the end of the day, what I keep coming back to is the heart and soul of this little blog; the place where I narrate the story that unfolds in front me, day after precious day. My heart tells me that’s worth something. For 8 years now this is the place I have written our story, the small victories, the tough days, the milestones, the sad moments, the funny stories… it’s all right here for us to look back on when these days have become memories. So I think I’ll keep at if for a while longer, and I hope you feel welcome to enjoy the journey with us.
