Like a spider weaving its glistening web
In preparation for what is to come,
Like an excited couple
In anticipation of their special day,
Like a patient mother-to-be
Counting down to the day of birth,
Like a naive child
On Christmas eve,
Like a potential author with a deadline in their hand...
I am jittery, I consider, I start to type...
I log on to my blog.
Why is it that the longer away I am from my blog, the more difficult it is to start again?
I wait for my friends for I have missed them. I long to visit their blogs too, and will.
The photo above was taken by me on the morning after my husband went away for a few days with our youngest son, Mr. 7 . This is a habit we started with our eldest son where we each spend one-on-one time away with one of our children at some stage of their development (admittedly it has only happened a couple of times so far with Mr. 16 and only once with Miss 12., but they remember these breaks away so distinctly). It is a little hard for the parent not away, but well worth it in the long term, we believe.
Do you do something similar with your loved ones?
