Making rounds

When a life altering crisis happens... it doesn't happen all at once. Oh it does happen all of a sudden...but then it happens every day, slowly... over and over.. for how long I don't know yet.

Normal phone calls and innocent questions to see how you are turn into reliving the wreckage as you update the person on your life.

I have been unusually quiet in the blogosphere for a reason. Maybe some day I will be brave enough to write why. But as for today, I sit just trying to reclaim this little piece of my life. The writing that connected me to people I've come to cherish and the outlet for my thoughts.

This first post in this new book (certainly not a new chapter, but a whole new story) of my life has been difficult to imagine writing. I haven't known how to go about it. I can't pretend there has been no reason for my silence and yet I can't put everything all out there either.

But I am here, I'm writing and I'm taking this first step in getting my life back.

I have been trying to visit the blogs I love slowly. Even that has been difficult as everything I read is now going through a totally different filter.

It still needs to be said that I have missed you all.

I have no idea what is going on, but that doesn't matter. I just wanted to let you know that I will be praying. Surely He knows and can bring the peace and comfort that you need.

We are so glad to have you back! It was strange for "Katie World" to be so quiet. I'm praying things get easier for you. *Hugs*

Katie, Just know that there are many here holding you up in prayer.

I will be lifting you up in prayer. I wish I could offer you more words of comfort, but at times like this, during devastating circumstances, it sometimes helps to know you have many people who care for you and are interceding for you in prayer.
