I haven’t been writing.
I’ve been thinking. And reading. And praying. And studying. And processing.
My husband and I have been having serious discussions over the last couple of months about our privacy as a family, and especially about giving our son the space to grow away from the eyes of the world. In this internet-crazed society, there are few things that are kept private. I wonder what it would be like to grow up with your entire childhood documented for strangers to view and I can’t say that it is fair to subject my child to this sort of life. I could write much more on the subject, and perhaps I will, but for now I can simply leave it with the fact that we are doing what we think is best for our child in the long run.
So we have decided to separate our family life and this blog. We’ve set up a private blog which will be accessible to close friends and family where we will share pictures and stories of our life and our baby. In the next few weeks, we’ll be removing pictures, some posts and perhaps names from this blog and instead start posting on the other.
This space will return to what it was originally. A quiet space for me to think and reflect and process. I share it because I hope can encourage at least one other person who might perhaps be on a similar journey and be working through similar feelings.
Thank you for your patience as we work to get the blogs separated and then as I slowly work on getting back to writing and posting.
(if you are a friend or family member and would like access to the other blog, you can contact me to be added to the list. you’ll need a google email address/google profile.)
