I don’t know how to write this post.
Mainly because I don’t want to write it. And I really want to write it.
I love blogging. I love this community of friends we have here. I love your comments. I love your emails. I love your blogs. I just love it all. And when I say “love”, I mean LUH-HUV. Cause I do.
But I need a break.
I know. “Jump on the blog-break-bandwagon, Annie. You follower.”
And maybe that is true. The Gilmore Girls taught me, “Where you lead, I will follow, any-any-where, that you tell me to….”
But here is what else is true. I’m a sinner and I need to deal with my sin. I’m hurting and I need to deal with my hurt. I’m scared and I need to deal with my fears. I’m a Christian and I need to deal with my God.
Not my blog.
My life is very loud and I need quiet. Real bad. Real real bad.
Especially with an exciting trip to Capetown, South Africa on the horizon, I need my soul to be calm. Right now it feels like a bunch of puzzle pieces, broken apart and shaken up in a mason jar.
That can’t be good.
So. I’ll be back. Before Africa for sure. But I don’t know when. [But trust me, if anything happens with the book, or if I get engaged to someone I have yet to meet, I’ll let you know. Those would be SO worth a blog-break-break. And are currently worth your prayers, I hope.]
If you don’t ever come back here because I’ve left for too long, then before you leave, I’ll take this chance to say thanks. I’m a better writer, and a better Annie, because you show up here day after day.
See y’all soon.
