Lately I feel like my blog is all over the place ~
One day it's featuring my home state of South Dakota
Then it's my kids.
And then I will take a dive into the depths of my spiritual life.
And I wonder . . . is this too much?
Too many things? Too much variety?
But . . . I remember this:
this is real,
this is me.
This is the reality of the multifacted life that we all live.
All these parts of us, circumstances, relationships . . .
"Cohesive randomness" I'll call it.
Cohesive because the randomness is all wrapped up in one body, mind & spirit.
Yesterday, Syd, my 8 year old, asked me if your "Senior Year"
is the best year of your life.
So we had a little conversation about how every year
is salt and peppered
with excitement and milestones,
heartbreaks and tragedy,
joy and laughter.
All of it, each year. Some are better than others.
But they all have a little of everything.
Just like us.
So . . . my blog will remain
some days deeply spiritual,
some days a mother showing off her kids,
some days capturing the beauty right here right now in photography,
some days sharing a fun art project,
some days sharing whatever I may be working through.
Yet...it will always be me ~ cohesive and random.
