4 1/2 Years?!?!

They say time flies and I believe it...!

It's been, according to Blogger, that long since I posted to this blog...

A lot (ok, almost everything) has changed since I was last here.  As I look around at all the broken links and blogs that are no longer in existence, I think to myself, what a mess!  Apparently a lot has changed in everyone's life, not just mine.

My first instinct was to just "Shut er down!  That's not me anymore!"
Now, as I pause, and remember, i think... not so fast...

This place was home for a long time.
It was a place where my old broken self came to find peace, and healing and restoration.
I met so many new and interesting friends during a very dark period of my life. (Many of whom I cannot now imagine my life without...)  It was a place where I learned to be the real me; not the one that I thought I should be or that others expected me to be.  Just me...  broken, and sad, and sweetly... on the road to freedom, and hope, and wholeness.

I've just spent the better part of a morning, when I should have been working, running around here...
Dusting off the cushions...
Reminiscing...
Laughing...
Crying...
Giving Thanks...

Nope, this place is going nowhere.  I may never post here again, who knows...
But this place deserves it's place in my history.  If you are reading this and are in a dark place of your own, sit a spell, make yourself comfortable, take what you need and go...
My hope and prayer is that you receive a blessing, as I did.

I re-read a few posts, and all the wonderful, life affirming comments made by my loved ones.
I've just highlighted a couple here.
Thank you from the depths of hell...
Tears fall like rain...
The Depp Effect...

and finally I've changed the settings on a private blog I used to share one of the more traumatic , life-changing, pivotal moments in my life.  (warning: explicit language, violence, adult content)

UNMASKED

The good news is, I am no longer bound by my past!  God, thank you!
I've stirred up a lot of dust here today, opened up the windows and let some fresh air in...
It feels GOOD!

I'm blogging again, but in a new place.

got beer...

I guess I probably have better things to do while I'm sitting here waiting for the UPS guy to show up but I can't think of any at the moment!
