Pause: Some Explanations

Back in the days of continuous blogging about Tehilla...

On occasion, we would be on a casual outing and someone would recognize Tehilla's miraculous face. Someone familiar or a new face who unknowingly was deeply connected to us as a member of our blog family. After casual conversation, often we would get asked, "So...what is going on with you- I mean- other than what you post on the blog?"

I thought it was a funny question. I'm pretty sure that I opened up my life to the world, sharing our deepest painful moments and our greatest magical times. And ear infections and teething issues. What more was there to tell?

Of course, there always is more. The pauses in between those posts. The mundane life routines. And the side stories that weren't always written about.

People react differently to life's ups and downs, so it isn't always easy to read a situation. This blog has been crucial for helping heart families, especially newly diagnosed families. It brought together people from every corner of the world to pray for our heart warrior princess. And now...it's making waves against the stigma of mental health. I've heard from so many people how they are gaining a deeper understanding, seeking help for family members, or feeling supported reading about a family experiencing something similar.

No worries. This blog isn't going anywhere. I have more to write.

The easiest way to explain my lack of blogging for the past two months is to explain how to read between the posts. My personality is that when we are going through something tough- no, not tough- something painfully challenging, I post less and less on Facebook, Instagram or this blog. The times when catching my breath is hard, when I'm doing all that I can to keep my head above water, I can't possibly post.

I'm breathing a bit better now. I'm able to plant my feet firmly on the ground, find my voice and find the positivity all around me.

I've got more parts to write about, and as my footing continues to grow stronger, I'll be picking up where I left off. This story has taken some very sharp turns, which I will blog about when I am ready.

For now, all of your love and support always means so much to us.

  1. All any of can do is take one day at a time. One foot in front of the other and just breath. This helps calm me. It's just remembering breath.
