It’s hard for me to believe that it’s been a whole year since I started blogging.  I’ve come to really enjoy blogging since it gives me a creative outlet at the end of my busy days.  It is fun to look back at older posts and see what our family has done. 

But what I’ve not seen in these posts is the struggles. I’ve not shared with you that this past year has been one of the toughest years of my life.  I might even say it has been the toughest year of my 39 years.  I’ve posted here and there that there have been some hard times in my life.  But when people come here, I don’t want you all to see me complaining or being down.

The problem with that is that I don’t hide my emotions very well.  If I’m happy, you know it.  If I’m sad, you know that too.  And the list could go on and on.  Some days when I post, I feel like such a fake.  Sometimes I post something good, just to make myself feel better. 

But right now, I feel like I need to be real.  And I don’t want to be real right here on the internet in front of everyone.  And not because I want to lie but because you probably have struggles of your own and you don’t need to carry mine too.  I read blogs to be uplifted and right now, I do not feel uplifting.  Not even a little bit. 

So I’ve decided to step away from the blog for a while {again, I know…}  :).  I’m not sure how long.  Right now, I need to work on my relationships with God, my husband, and my children.  And I need to work on my relationship with myself too.  When I get those things in a better place, then I can come back here because I can be real with you again. 

Please, pray for me.  Pray for David and pray for my children.  I’m probably going to be a bit absent from blogland in general but I will check my email since I need to keep in touch with some organizations in my life.  If you need me, please send an email via the button on my profile page. 

Thank you for reading here.  I’m thankful for the friends that I’ve developed in the blog world.   I love to visit you here and on your blogs so I don’t plan to be gone long.  Just long enough to find my joy and love again. 

And thank you in advance for prayers for us.  I appreciate that so much…much more than I can say.

Sincerely, Adriane

“Restore to me the joy of your salvation

And sustain me with a willing spirit.”

Psalm 51:12
