I have gotten all my "stuff" correctly scheduled and am lucky enough to have a few days in between each major activity to sit and read, or cook, or daydream before hurrying out once again.
I have also had time to ponder the blogs that I read instead of hurrying through them in order to be sure I do not miss anything. As a result, I have noticed that some of "my" bloggers are a little low in spirit. Some come right out and write about it, while others are more enigmatic about some struggle they or a loved one is having. Deaths in the family, job losses, fights with relatives on Facebook, and serious health problems are all written about or maybe hinted at depending on whether the writer is bold or shy. This is where Blogger falls short in a way. We can get something off our chest and feel a sense of relief, but does it help when we return to the real world? We can take some good advice from the wisdom of individuals in the general blogdom, but does that truly help? For some of us perhaps, but I really wish I could look the writer in the eye and put my arm on their shoulder and bring them something sweet and decadent and just sit until the conversation could flow. I would not have any fancy answers or successful suggestions, but I would have real concern to convey and a love of man(woman)kind to share and let them know how important they are in the grand scheme of things.
We all are in this rocky boat, and some get more seasick than others, and that is when it really is hard to hang on tightly. If you are one of those please note that I have a sincere and loving look on my face right now and I am reaching out to place my hand on yours until the seas calm, even if they do so only ever-so-briefly.
