Is it possible to miss an inanimate object? Because I have missed you, Nerdy Chicks Rule. Maybe it isn’t possible to call a blog inanimate when its followers, likes, and comments breathe life into it. I only know that I have missed being here, and interacting with you and that my sudden failure to post has not been by choice.
The past few weeks have taken me on a harrowing journey – one that included traveling hours from home and spending many nights in a Ronald McDonald House. During these weeks, I’ve had to hang on to the real world so tightly that I’ve all but disappeared from the virtual world.
But the journey was not without hope and promise. I met many wonderful people along the way. Inspirational parents whose road is more treacherous than mine, and who somehow manage to travel it with smiles on their faces and joy in their hearts. Brilliant doctors who have devoted their lives to making the lives of others better. Children who brim with enthusiasm, despite having to face obstacles unimaginable to most of us.
It is good to be back, even if I can already tell that the road ahead is full of potholes. I feel equipped to travel it now, knowing I will meet inspiration, brilliance, joy, and enthusiasm along the way.
I will be returning Friday with our normal Quotable Nerdy Chick feature! Until then I’ll be furiously working on revising THE BOY PREDICTION to the specifications of my brilliant and insightful editor. 😀
