I come to the blank screen tonight unsure of what to say and what to withhold, what to expose and what to keep quiet. Some things, as always but even more in these days, are too painful and scary to share, or intersect too deeply with the stories and lives of my closest ones — and some things are too sacred to unfold just yet.
Some things are both.
But there’s stuff I wanna tell you guys, especially in light of the fact that when I last wrote (nearly a full 2 months ago, a gap which speaks for itself), I was dealing actively with depression, discouragement, ending nearly every day in tears over the kids’ behaviors and needs, combined with the reality of my husband’s spiritual status…..
Know someone who'd appreciate this?
