wow! I have been blogger absent because of a lack of time and a decision to be more present with my girls, but there has been so much that's been rolling around in my mind to post about. Sometimes I don't write more out of the feeling of being overwhelmed by all I want to share more than anything: ) But here is my quick attempt to get some thoughts and feelings out there. Sorry if it's choppy, sorry if it's missing detail and pizazz...I just want to finally write something in the small amount of time I have to do so: ) Here it goes....
