Almost every time I spoke with my mom on the phone, and several times while we were stateside over the summer, she would ask me when I was going to start blogging again. I would always tell her that I have been busy but I would start writing again soon. Twenty-eight days ago, on August 8, my mother died. Soon was never soon enough.
So in honor of my mother I am making a comeback and going to start blogging again. I can't promise all my entries will be full of sunshine, because to be honest, lately most of my days have been dark and rainy, but I do promise that I will give you reasons to come back to read more.
So reason number one (and two and three!) to keep reading/come back to reading my blog...
... my amazing children. The kids started back to school on August 23rd. Emily is now in 11th grade, Chris is in 8th grade and Sami is in 4th grade. With these three, it is bound to be an interesting year. Hard to believe they have grown up so quickly and we are nearing the beginning of our fifth year in Japan. Time really does fly by in the blink of an eye.
So stay tuned and make sure you bookmark or subscribe to my RSS feeds. There is much more to come.
