Mother, writer and daydreamer. Also chocoholic and chick-flick lover. But mainly mommy. To two boys, at that! When not escorting my Elder One (EO) to karate class, I'm trying to get in as many cuddles as possible from my Younger One (YO). And when not doing either, I'm hard-at-work trying to maintain a steady relationship with my laptop. And as for the Man I Married (MIM), well, let’s just put it this way – even though we share a bedroom, our most meaningful conversations are held over the cell-phone!

A Letter to my Blog

Dear Blog,

1) You probably think I'm treating you like Lady Tremaine treated Cinderella. Yes, I googled her name, because I still have a responsibility to my readers...

...those who are left, anyhow :-(

2) You probably think I am taking out my DaddyDearest's death, on you.

3) You probably think I don't have anything to say or record anymore.

4) You probably think I don't love you anymore.

Well, to all that, let me assure you that nothing(s) could be further from the truth.

No, you're not some thingummy that I got forcibly stuck with. I created you because I wanted to. I'm sorry about the neglect. With Baba gone, I seem to have lost a huge sense of drive and motivation. I am guilty of being lazy at the best of times; couple that sin with the meh-blah feeling of pointlessness, then my world will suffer. I'm sorry it had to be you.

I seem to have driven all my faithful readers away...which hurts, and it's all my fault. I hope one day I can rise again from my ashes. I will resurrect you then and hopefully all our old friends will be back, and some new ones too!

I just wish I knew when that day was.

All I can say to you, dear Blog, is, keep singing "I Will Survive"; just that one line, over and over to yourself again and again. Let that one line be our anthem.

Love always,
M4

Hey!! A new one (blog reader) is here!! Now start writing. Chop, chop! Git to work!

Jokes apart - HUGS. I can understand how the drive and motivation can seep out of you after such a big loss. Issokay. It'll come back. Take it one day, and one post, at a time.

HUGS again.

Hey, M4, we're all here - I know I've been severely neglectful towards my blog and blogging buddies, but I'm still here. And will always turn up like a bad penny! :P

Keep writing as and when you feel like, M4. The drive and motivation will slowly come back. Hugs! :D

I'm still here! Write what you like and when you like. Whenever you do, "I'll be back" :)

It happens. I still manage to blog sometimes, but I just don't actually feel like doing anything much. Enthusiasm has taken a big back seat right now. Many of us love your blog, my dear, and will keep checking on it.
So let it not be a task, but something that is there for when you want to write. Take care.

To all of you, I offer a deep and heartfelt thank you.

You don't know how much your words mean to me...

I'm sure your blog and your blog buddies understand everything well, dear M4.

Haven't been far away, just not around lately.

Just write, whenever. And amen to Gloria Gaynor! :)
