Tap, Tap, Tap….is this blog on?
I’ve been thinking about blogging a lot, but somehow the thinking has not translated into the actual doing. However I got this message today and besides it making me laugh, it made me promise to post something before midnight Eastern time:
‘I think it has been a month. It may have been almost two. I refuse to count and make myself angrier. New life, new coast, new jobs, new school, new friends, no new blog post???? no new note with a “I think this will probably be okay” or “Holy shit, this is the worst thing we’ve ever done, send cash!” Anything!! SEND A NOTE!! WRITE ON YOUR BLOG!!’
Honestly, with a friend’s encouragement like that, how can I not blog?!?!?
I don’t know really where to begin. Except to say that this has been, without a shred of doubt, the right move for us. It has not been easy, but it has been good….deeply good. In a class I am taking for my Masters’ degree, we are studying the dynamic of character and call and what it means to be a leader. This complex idea of vocation, calling and the formation of oneself has been tailored made for this experience that I am walking through right now.
I will blog more about how it is a culture shock to be here, the challenges of our respective roles/jobs, how the girls are doing, the craziness of homeschooling and the sheer stupidity of getting a puppy….
But for now, I think this will probably be OK…and send cash!
