O, I tried. Several times, in fact, to go back to the MSN page. But somewhere in the past two years, I've lost the desire. Heaven's sakes. I even tried to go back through ALL of the old posts to delete anything that had to do with the former life ... but that was so many posts ... And then, of course, I realized that I didn't want to delete everything that had to do with my former life.

I couldn't face the images on the page ... the fonts .... the title. But now I get that that's ok, and the only person that makes me do things ... is me. I {am} a slow genius. And then I started to get all brave on the inside - and I look at the fabulous examples of Chelle and Fairlight and Meg and Jungle Mama and I thought maybe, just maybe, I could just switch. Start over.

Sometimes you just don't know the things that are going to weigh you down.

And I just can't let something as {ridiculous} as this weigh me down. ;)

    Sometimes, the best thing you can do is walk away from the past; I am a firm believer in new beginnings (witnessed by my life of Grace)
    Welcome back, dear girl.

    You know? I TOTALLY GET the whole MSN thing. I am so ready to be done with that part of me too. Only I don't want to drag 99% of that world along with my on my next blog quest.....I just need a new safe place to be anonymous and be ME. I know you understand this.

    I'm glad you started over. I often wondered how you could stand going back to that page, it was painful for ME, I knew it had to be painful for you.

    I love you!!!! We need to play catch up. Once school is out (for me) we need to have a day to hang out and chat and do girly things. :)

    Love you love you love you :-x

    Bless your heart. I am so glad to see this fresh new post in a bright new spot. You, dear girl are strong and beautiful and full of grace. I feel like you have experienced grace and love at such a deeper level. When the one person you hold dearest, betrays your trust and walks out of your life forever and you have to start over with a brand new life. And you carry on with HOPE and and can draw from that nightmare, renewed assurance of God's goodness. That to me is proof that God's power is oh so real. In the face of life, dealing you a blow like this, I can only pray that placed in that spot myself, I would be able to respond half so well. You may not feel like it Lisa but you are a complete inspiration to me. And so thrilled to have you back.

    My dear, I am so glad to see you back and in a better place. Like Ronna, it was painful to me too, to go to you old space. I'm glad you have started fresh and new. You are amazing. It will be a treat to visit you here.
