Woke up this morning to the first bloom on an orchid that I moved from our previous house. What a beauty. Is this nature promising me that there is always a chance for renewal? I think it is...
True confessions...I have been really having a hard time keeping up with my blog lately. Life outside my blog life as been such a tough up hill battle. Motherhood has turned out to be tougher than I ever imagined. There are days that are so hard to face, so hard to keep one foot in front of the other, that the idea of writing about art and home seem so unimportant. For the past year, I have used The Homeless Finch as my refuge from the daily struggles with one of my kids. Now, I have reached a point when I can't write about a sofa, a pillow or a painting. My mind is just too cluttered with sadness. But don't worry about me, I haven't given up hope. Nature helps me remember that there is always hope...there is always a chance for brighter days...and there will be.
Just hang in there with me. I might not blog as much as I have in the past. I'm okay with that and I hope you are too.
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.
-Until Next Time-
