I know I have been away from my cyber-space-say-I for awhile.
And I feel all tongue-tiredly as I tippity-tap-type to you now.
“What do I say?” “Where do I even begin??”
I knew an enthusiastic “Hi!” or “Hey!” wouldn’t cut it. So I did what every other ‘loss for words’ individual would do…
I googled, “WHAT TO SAY TO A FRIEND AFTER A LONG TIME.”
I want to thank Harvard Business Review who offered the most solid advice…
- Acknowledge the lapse in time. (I’m sorry I’ve been absent, but God has been working on me mightily & He provided a lot of new soil for me to till in my heart during the lent & Easter Season; which took a lot of my time and effort, with the added bonus of doing some great works for Him, as well! More on those to follow…)
- Explain the “Why now?” (Easter is completed, Pentecost is about to unfold, and several fields have been harvested – leaving me time now to tippity-tap-type once again!)
- Offer a quid pro quo (I promise to offer enthusiastic support, along with being the very best cheerleader ever, whenever the Spirit calls YOU away from this cyber-space for the opportunity to do ‘what is necessary’ in your own life circumstance.)
But more than telling you all of that
I really just wanted to say…I’ve missed you.
(All of you!)
And in preparation of showing just how much you have been missed – this weekend I plan to do two things before I begin sharing my hugs n’ blessings with you, once again:
I will finish getting caught-up with all the wonderful posts YOU have posted – as I have greatly missed your well-written stories, delicious recipes, wise advise, compassionate sharing, healthy living, awesome movie reviews, and heart-warming faith experiences.
(You may have already noticed me liking many of these great posts I’d missed…)
And then there’s this whimsical fairy-tale event I must witness….
But, after all of that, I promise to be with you again (more regularly) beginning on Monday with a very special giggle as I begin anew…with lots of things yet to say!
(And I won’t need the google-masters to assist me any longer!)
hugs n’ blessings for all the time spent catching up!
