⭐Blogging in general: What's the purpose? I'm just an average Jane...my opinion isn't any more important than any one else's. And, does anyone really care about what's going on in my life? I mean, like I said, I'm no more important than anyone else, so does it really matter?
⭐I try to keep my family's personal life out of my blog posts, so what is there to write about?
⭐I'm so sick of the political posts on FB & IG. Franklin Graham said my thoughts exactly during an interview (and I'm paraphrasing): The whole "everyone gets a trophy" has ruined today's young adults; they don't know how to lose. (He's my new hero!)
It's great that we live in a country where we have free speech, but the destroying of property is not okay. They just look like spoiled brats who should have been at work or at school instead of destroying property.
⭐I can't even seem to find time to do the Wednesday Hodgepodge, or when I do, I don't have time to go back and read what everyone wrote. I'm such a Hodgepodge Failure. Big time.
⭐And the Friday Foto Friends? Same thing.
⭐I thought about shutting this blog down for a while. It pretty much has been shut down anyway. Or, maybe I should just commit myself to writing
⭐Honestly, my dad isn't doing well. My time & energy is going toward him. It's tough to see this big strong man who has never been sick deteriorate. I've had a bad cold this week, so I haven't been able to see him, and that's been tough...real tough. Talking on the phone isn't the same as seeing him and being around him; just spending time with him.
⭐I'm trying to put things in perspective: what's really important and what's not. The political rants on social media are not important. Writing posts when I don't feel like it aren't important. Spending time with my daddy is important.
So, here's my conclusion:
If I feel like writing, I'll write. That's basically what I've been doing, anyway, with this blog. If I feel like participating (and I mean really participating) in the Hodgepodge & Friday Foto Friends, I'll do it. And I won't feel guilty when I don't.
I have a lot of things that are being put on hold right now, and this blog is just a small part. Thanks for your understanding and prayers!
