    I lied

    “Nothing endures but change.”

    Heraclitus (540 A.D.)

    I lied.  I told you there would be a post at the beginning of this month, and I haven’t written a thing.  The good news is that I’ve beaten the odds and maintained a blog for more than a year; much longer than the three month life span that most blogs enjoy.  The bad news is that I won’t be writing regularly any more.  Although I enjoy it tremendously, my time is so precious right now, that I feel pulled in too many directions.  Other things in my life have to take priority over my writing.  (Namely, getting some regular exercise, and starting my own photography business!)

    This past summer, I went back through all of the posts I’d ever written, selected my favourites, edited them, and put them together in chapter book format.  I had them bound through an online publisher and may even send a few copies around to publishers, or I may just keep them for my daughters.  Regardless of where they end up, creating these books was a wonderful way to celebrate a year’s worth of Grateful Mama writings.  I’m so happy and proud to have created something that others have enjoyed.

    Thank you so much for reading.  I’ll leave you with a photo I took recently of Pip, witnessing her first rainbow.  You can’t really tell from this shot, but it was a double rainbow; one for each daughter.

      Hi Karen,
      I have thoroughly enjoyed following the ‘Grateful Mama’ and will miss those special moments as Pip and Fig continue to grow up. The Blog has been a gift to me as well as to the girls. Thank you! Have fun capturing special moments through your photography.

      I for one will miss the chuckles you gave us, your wisdom and the generosity you’ve shown in sharing your family life with us Karen. And what a wonderful gift you’ve given your two daughters. You may have started a practice that will continue through the generations. I watch with great pride as another door opens to you.
