“Every time things pipe down around here, it’s because there is something consuming going on that I’m not ready to share with the Internet yet. In this space, I share my thoughts and observations about the world. It follows, then, that when my world is permeated by a thing I can’t share, there is radio silence.
When I have a baby, that baby gets my thoughts, observations, and my world.
When I write a book, that book gets my thoughts, observations, and my world.
And the events of the last year have gotten all of my thoughts – all of my world.”
– Kate Connor
A dear friend from college wrote these words in her very own blog post not long ago, however they have resonated with me ever since. As I get settled in for my third year here in Ghana, I look around and see all of the new teachers so excited about getting to know this place that I’ve grown to call my home. I am reading their blog posts about “firsts” here in their new country. It takes me back to my first year where I was very diligent about keeping friends and family updated back home via my blog posts. I realized that I DID NOT Write. A. Single. Blog. Post. Last. Year. Now in my defense, I did do a fairly good job of at least posting pictures on instagram that automatically rolled over to Facebook, so don’t get greedy people. I tried. Last year was rough. I will not go into great detail because it is unnecessary at this point. The point is that despite last year’s chaos abounding, God is good and is doing a new work in my life and those around me. Refinement is always a difficult yet rewarding process.
All that to say it was not you, it was me! I apologize for our temporary break up but I have thought it over and our relationship is worth fighting for. Yes, you and me and the rest of the creepy people who might click on this title hoping for a juicy story about my love life 😉 With that said I promise to try and do some great updates this year on my life here. Many apologies for the radio silence last year but I promise to make up for it by flooding your inboxes with updates this year.
Cheers to 3 years here in Ghana, life being so sweet despite all of its curveballs, and amazing things that are yet to come! Enjoy this quick photo update from the past few weeks here back in Ghana:
– Thanks for the continued love and support. I promise there will be less radio silence.
