At the beginning of this year, I made the audacious goal to blog every day in 2020. I knew it was ambitious, but I also knew I wanted to give it a try.
Little did I know that 2020 would unleash a fury of difficulty and tragedy, from two huge personal crises to a pandemic to finishing up our son’s 9th grade year at our dining room table to rising awareness of injustice to protests and riots to wondering if I will ever again sit down in a restaurant with my husband…
You know. Just the two of us.
On a date.
Or something that looks remotely like a date.
(Even if the restaurants opened to full capacity, our ability to go on a date is severely hampered by a personal crisis impacting our life. Sigh.)
But someway somehow, here we are nearly halfway through 2020. I’ve put a blog post out every day.
A big shout out to my friend J. Parker of Hot Holy & Humorous, who graciously and without even being asked, offered up the post Fabulous Sex After 50? Let’s Go with a Hard YES on THAT! on March 19. Thank you, my friend. It’s a great read. And you’re a great friend.
And thank you to all of you, my faithful readers. Just the other day I heard from an Australian reader who is a missionary in Thailand with her husband, and she thanked me for the difference I’ve made in their marriage.
That gave me hope. And encouragement to keep writing and to keep putting myself out there.
Here’s to the rest of 2020. I haven’t seen any of the murder hornets yet, but maybe they’re coming. I actually think nothing at this point could surprise us about what the year has left to give us.
As for me, I’m just going to keep plugging along. Blogging every day.
Every. Single. Day.
