Any day is a good day for a rebirth, a fresh start. Why not the first day of Autumn?
Since I began this blog in 2006, life has changed considerably. We welcomed a second son into our family in July 2008. He is now a walking, babbling little monkey. A delight. His big brother has climbed the preschool ranks and is now in the 4 year old class. He’s learning and growing at an awe-inspiring rate. Blessings, blessings, everywhere. But time for blogging became slim, and the entire feel no longer fit the timbre of my life.
So why the new start here at Warm as Pie? I’ve been thinking a lot about what I do. Most importantly, I’m called to be a mother to my boys. I live to build a warm, peaceful home–a place where they can grow and develop and be inspired to live godly lives, creative lives, meaningful lives. This will be my purpose for a short season. Before I know it, my children will be independent adults. (Of course, I’m also making a home for my sweet hubby, and that job will be mine until my final days.)
But I’ve been given other gifts as well. I feel called to teach and to write. I want to bring those aspects of myself into my life now, today. I believe that both teaching and writing provide a way for me to reflect upon and preserve the details of the present. I can better appreciate and delight in the current moment by taking the time to record those details and hopefully stir-up a little inspiration in others. It’s a lofty goal, but I believe that my little blog can be one step forward.
Here, I plan to record the objects, activities, and insights that inspire me. I will share the happenings of my days, and from time to time I’ll highlight books, products, and websites that I enjoy.
A new beginning.
