I know I have been MIA lately, which I guess in blog land is the equivalent of being rendered speechless. I have been so humbled lately by the many blessings I have. There are people in my life that have been faced with some pretty insurmountable things recently; some are coworkers, others are life long friends. Some of these things are so tragic, they are literally unspeakable. I have learned what it means to truly hurt for another person. I haven't blogged because I feel like what I have to say is so trivial and meaningless sometimes. I have felt like I should have something really profound to say, and the truth is, I just don't. I read a really inspirational post here, it just really spoke to me. It motivated me to get over the hump and just blog. Just because life hands us lemons, doens't mean we have to suck on them. Squeeze those babies and add some sugar, and if you really need a pick me up, throw in a little bit (or a lot) of vodka. In other words, life goes on. Although I now have a deeper understanding of the old adage, things can change in the blink of an eye.
