Busy Bees

by Stefani on 15-January-2008

I feel that I should make a sort of blanket apology.

There are so very many of you out there whose beautiful blogs inspire me and sustain me. There are so many of you whose comments here make me smile and give me those little pats on the back that can be rare for a mama. I appreciate you.

And yet, somehow, with traveling and sicknesses, and the holidays, then the cleaning up from the holidays, and the buckling down that has followed, I’ve neglected your blogs, and I’ve neglected my own.

I guess it’s the natural rhythm of things. We’ve needed a moment to gather ourselves for a new year.

I hope you know though, that I’m thinking of ya, and that one of these days we’ll get back in the groove.

For now though, keeping up with busy hands has been about all I can manage.

As dear as those little hands and all their many projects are, friend, I’m looking forward to catching up!

Until then, know that you’re on my mind.

No apologies necessary! You’re working away at the most important job of all.

Busy bees unite! I ditto all the above. Little hands keep our bigger hands plenty busy, especially when we try to browse or blog.

Ah, keeping up with busy hands is the best possible thing to occupy your time. You must relish each moment.

I’m finding it difficult to get back into any sort of groove after the holidays, too. Maybe it’s the January vibe.

I like that last photo especially. A light belt in karate, eh?

You’re on my mind too, friend.

join the club, sweets 🙂

there will soon come a day when the dimples on the back of my toddler’s hands will disappear.

i can hardly bear to think of it.

well dear, you’ve got a lot to keep up with. we’re still here – no apologies necessary!

kristin January 16, 2008 at 6:52 am

no apologies needed. it does take quite a bit of time to find that old-ish/new-ish groove again in january… the photos of your latest activities look wonderful. 🙂

heather January 16, 2008 at 8:40 am

dana January 16, 2008 at 8:52 am

Wow, I love how you tied in these pictures with explaining why you haven’t been blogging. So creative!

Jade January 16, 2008 at 2:10 pm

No worries friend! You do what you do best and that is being a mommy. What beautiful shots of your boys!

Idle hands are the devil’s workshop my Grammer always used to say. Thanks again for last night!

lina January 16, 2008 at 4:30 pm

I know that feeling..! It’s good to get away for a while and come back refreshed. Take your time!

leslie January 16, 2008 at 4:34 pm

ha ha! i didn’t notice you were taking a break. maybe because i am in a flakey sorta mood right now. my new years resolution is to be more flakey. i guess that feels good to me right now. just go with the flow instead of the “multi-tasking” “burn the candle on both ends” “rush rush rush” i am usually in. whew!

Family always comes first, especially when your kids are little. So don’t worry about the blogging business too much. We’ll all still be here when you find the time.

This is such a beautiful post. Such a small part of the body can show so much – how big they are, what their interests are…
