Prior to Christmas I set a goal to blog daily until Christmas. I accomplished this and even blogged for nearly two weeks beyond, thanks to my Christmas vacation. I took advantage of the time off and filled my "Scheduled Blogs" folder. As this emptied, I couldn't seem to muster a thought or the ambition to pursue one...so I took a break.
A break...again...but sometimes you just need a break.
Have you ever needed a break?
Anyway, like I was saying, TOP's Tuesday was my Mom's favorite blog each week. It started as a way to remember Heidi and share my writing and publication journey as Where's Heidi? One Sister's Journey transitioned from an emotional vomit draft to the book available today.
So as we watch NCIS and enjoy our overnight guest, I smile to think about all the responses and conversations Mom and I had as comments to these blogs since 2011. Without knowing it, Mom left me a legacy of memories and words of wisdom. When I miss her or want to hear her voice, all I have to do, is visit my archives. I wonder if my words will have the same impact on my daughter one day? One will never know, by the time I'm eighty, blogs probably will be a thing of the past and a computer will fit inside your pencil eraser.
