When a Blog Dies
Does anyone attend its funeral?
Is there a wake?
Does it whither like a flower?
I’m not sure how a blog dies. Or a friendship. Or anything else.
I supposed it just happens….
Fast. Slow. Weak. Strong. In a BURST……or a BLINK.
It’s just gone.
And life goes on.
Because really? There is a time for everything. For every purpose. For every moment.
To every thing there is a season,
and a time to every purpose under the heaven:
a time to be born, and a time to die;
a time to plant, and a time to pluck up that which is planted;
a time to kill, and a time to heal;
a time to break down, and a time to build up;
a time to weep, and a time to laugh;
a time to mourn, and a time to dance;
a time to cast away stones, and a time to gather stones together;
a time to embrace, and a time to refrain from embracing;
a time to get, and a time to lose;
a time to keep, and a time to cast away;
a time to rend, and a time to sew;
a time to keep silence, and a time to speak;
a time to love, and a time to hate;
a time of war, and a time of peace.
Ascribed to King Solomon (King James Version, 1611)
This blog is in one of these times and I am wondering if it’s season has passed.
I am wondering
if it’s me? if it has lost its momentum.
I have blogged almost three years.
I gave my heart and soul to this blog, and I accomplished what I set out to do. MORE than, I thought I could do, or would do.
My heart is FULL. It is not sad. I am so proud of what I have done here and the memories I have created.
It’s been an amazing journey and I don’t want to drag it out. I want its end to be as amazing as its beginning.
I will miss blogging. I will miss it like missing a heartbeat. But I know I will treasure these documented moments. The good, the bad, and the always.
Thank-you so much for your generous comments, fabulous awards, and for sharing your soul with me.
I wish you a life full of blessings, and a heart full of laughter.
