I was advised when I began blogging to get about 10 posts ahead, to be able to pull one out on days like these. But I didn’t listen, I wanted to keep them coming, fresh, as they were happening, every day.
But yesterday emergencies in the lives of others I love took over my life for a about 36 hours span of the 24 hour day. Someone in the hospital. Multiple babysitting jobs. I was needed as a brother, an uncle, an animal rescuer.
There was feeding and cleaning, and a narrow escape for his life by Laska the love kitty with a nippy dog hot on his trail. Then the traveling and the lack of sleep and no time to eat, and frankly, more to do than this already sleep deprived body is able to. (# 8 in my “100 things about me” on the about page)
Maybe it’s just because I’m new and don’t know how to do this efficently. But it takes about 3 hours to get one of these posts done the way I want. And I have two blogs – so that’s 6 hours. And there’s the reading of all the blogs I love, and letting you all know I was there – because it’s nice to know people are there. But I fell short today.
So no big new insights into love – no clever wording – no fiddling with adjectives to find the right ones – just crazy over the top busy-ness and no time to make pretty flower arrangements out of words. Except that one – I like that one.
I feel like I’ve let you down. I’m sorry.
A blog friend told me that one post per day is a good goal. That’s 7 per week. But with the two blogs, I do about 10 or 11 per week – but not today.
I desperately want to give you all something worthwhile to come back to each day – and that takes time. And today there was just enough time to do all I could, to keep a bunch of people above the water line. I”m mixing metaphors here – sorry, but all the balls remained in the air, not one hit the ground. Yay. And the emergencies should subside – and tomorrow I promise to have something useful.
In God’s Love.
