Dear poor neglected blog,

I am so sorry I have ignored an neglected you for months, only to stop by occasionally with a few pretty images and a trickle of thoughts like only a deadbeat dad can do.   But, I do have an excuse.   Well actually a lot of excuses.   The last four months have been a whirlwind of emotion, surprise and delights... and let me tell you the hits keep on coming there to derail me right as I think I am getting back on track.   But, it is a new year... and I am resolving to overcome everything that life throws at me.... but I also resolve not to feel guilty if I can't quite keep up.   But, I am sorry.   I am sorry that I had to go away for work during September, only to return home and find out that I am pregnant in October, to then jaunt off to Thailand and New Zealand for the month of November where I got married AND turned forty.   December I recovered; tried to get into the Christmas spirit; and into the groove of actually going to work.   January came into my life carrying a horrible cold and utter exhaustion followed by prayers for a quick recovery so that I can get on a flight in a week to go to my sister's wedding in Belize.    Now, don't get me wrong... I am not complaining.    I am so terribly thankful to be so lucky and blessed... just trying to adjust to all of the changes and challenges that lie ahead.   I promise to visit more often, but it might not be as often as it was before.
