In the past, I used this blog as a vehicle to work through parenting struggles.
During the early days, those confused and worry about the future days, tantrums and intensities provided me with lots of material.
I am thankful for the support and answers that came from the blog, either directly or indirectly.
I am also grateful for the unique gift this documented journey provides. There were certain times, certain months, that I could have written daily. Much of the writing was produced through tears and frustration.
Looking back, it isn’t hard to see the enormous progress that our family feels. We feel it daily.
Over the holidays, I took a blogging staycation and thought about my current relationship with the blog.
I had decided earlier that I didn’t want to share every load of our dirty laundry with the world. I was well aware that could make a difference in the writing, the frequency and the intensity.
We get a lot of learning accomplished each day now. There is more laughing and teasing and smiling, but some might find that boring to read. Maybe the good times can be inspirational to those that are now walking through their hardest and struggling days.
Do you tend to write more about the struggles or the celebrations?
