Hello Blogger! I'm back!

This is me, Eldarwen, back on Blogger. I know, I'm shocked too. I haven't even been to my blog in a year. What inspired me to venture back into the blogging world, you might ask? Well a few nights ago I had a very elaborate dream. It was one of those that didn't seem to make sense at all but I just couldn't get it off my mind. I finally sat down later that day and wrote it all out thinking that maybe after writing it down I would be able to stop thinking about it. I wrote out each and every detail of the dream and it did quite the opposite of what I was hoping for... It sparked something in me and I was not able to put it out of my mind. It was like I had just met an old, long lost friend. I don't know if many of you are aware of this, but I used to LOVE writing. I wanted to be a writer. At some point it wasn't just a want, it was a big dream of mine; a passion. But somehow I lost that passion. I gave up that dream. But as I was sitting there reading over the dream I had a few nights ago, my heart starting pounding and I said to myself, "This would make an awesome book." After that one thing led to another. I went through my closet pulling out old journals where I had written book ideas and even found my old sketching book. It reminded me of all my blogging friends who love to write, and some used to share their stories with me and I with them. I even wrote a few stories with some of you! And in that one moment I longed to have all of that back; all the friendships, the adventures, the laughs, the inspiration and most importantly the encouragement from my blogging friends!

Since I left blogger and haven't had contact with a lot of you in over a year I don't expect that I will have the same, close friendship that I used to have with some of you, but I do so wish I could go back in time and that I had continued to blog, and that I hadn't given up on it. But who knows! Maybe it was God's plan for me to stop blogging for a while (heh...a very long while).

A lot has happened since I last wrote on my blog. Some good things, some bad. I would love to fill you in on what the past year has entailed, but I think I will save it for my next post (trust me, it will be a looooong post lol). I do want to quickly let those of you who are wondering know that my Dad is still suffering with Multiple Sclerosis and he is currently in the Hospital with a new lesion on his brain stem, which was found on an MRI his doctor took last Friday (Jan. 11). He is doing okay but we're going to have to start a new treatment for him because the one that he just started about three or four months ago isn't doing what we had hoped. I will go into more detail on that subject (and many more) in my next blog post.

I want y'all to know that I have missed each and every one of you so very much!! I know I haven't exactly shown that, what with my whole disappearance and all, but I have missed you. I may not post on my blog every day like I did in the past (or at least tried to), but folks, this is me officially saying "Hello Blogger! I'm back!" (:

10 Greetings from Elven Friends

Oh my, seeing a post from you on my dash made me do a double take!! This has made my night, I can't wait to see you posting regularly again. I've missed you and your blog SO MUCH!

Ian said...

I just revived my blog today, too, for the first time in well over a year...intriguingly, logging into my account for the first time in ages was how I discovered this post. I'd forgotten what blogs I even followed.

"There were two who came back that day..."
