Choosing Grace

 


Let's face it.

The last 18 months have been tough on everyone. Doesn't matter how you have spent the pandemic, it's been tough.

I was toughest on myself. Didn't seem like I was "accomplishing" anything (I'm retired. Just what do I think I have to accomplish?) I just quit everything for a while. 

In January, I chose Grace as my One Little Word. It has given me permission to forgive myself for not getting things done. It gave me permission to not worry about writing (again). Once we got Sophie, it gave me permission to not have a spotless house (like it ever was!).

I started thinking about my writing and my blog last week. I kept wondering how I ever kept it going when Chloe was Sophie's age. So I went back and looked.  

I didn't.

I began my blog when Chloe was about 6 months old. Not 2 or 3 months. But Chloe did give me lots of stories to tell!

One of the things I struggled with after Chloe passed was what to do with the blog.  Archive it?  Nope. Start a new one? Nope.

Renaming seemed like the way to go.

So welcome to Stories With Sophie. She's got a few to tell.
