During the past two weeks, much to my chagrin, this beloved blog has not received the attention it so richly deserves. While it remains one of the highest priorities in my life, and I truly believe it is part of the path my life is to take, I found myself failing at juggling the commitments and desires of my heart and life.
With outside full-time employment, the Thanksgiving Challenge planned, and the holidays looming, I was afforded a once in a lifetime experience to meet 2 brothers, a sister and an extended family I’ve never met. While I’ve known of them for the past 40 years, I did not know if they knew of me. It offered us an extremely rare and fascinating experience filled with a roller coaster of emotions. There have been heartwarming and enthusiastic welcomes and disheartening disappointments and rejection. It is a journey I will share with you in the near future.
At the same time, a special trip to meet 3 people who held the key to my epiphany will not be coming to fruition. After anticipating it for 2 ½ years, it was a disappointment that brought tears. I’ve weathered the flu, critical family illnesses and will be laid off in the very near future.
This continues here ... as well as a plan of action ... http://www.ranaesheart.com/2008/12/juggling-priorities-and-battling.html
