So here we are again. It has been so long since we shared this space together. So much has changed. There are so many things I should have told you, but the words have slipped through my fingers. 


I, who have never been a mother, have been told to mother four children. However, I am supposed to always keep in mind that I am not their mother. Being without a mother myself, I am often at a loss when I find myself needing motherly advice about mothering. I need to know how to keep from smothering. 


I don’t hear God, but I know He is there. This could be a comfortable, companionable silence or it could be something else…


My new favorite new phrase is "fractured intentions" (from Still by Lauren Winner). What is your favorite new thing?
