You know that feeling when you reach the last chocolate in the box? Or when you know the movie you’ve waited six months to see is almost over?
Yep. That’s how I feel.
I’m very bummed the blog is closing. I am the newbie in the group, only having joined MW’s back in September. It’s been my pleasure to be a part of such a wonderful site. I was a follower long before I was a blogging member. I agree with Eliza 100%. I hope one day Mama Writers will be back up and rearin’ to go. LOL Of course, here’s hoping that I’ll have changed my status bar from novice writer to pubbed author!
I’m very appreciative of the time I spent with all you MW’s and my blogmates. It’s definitely been an excellent chapter in my life story. One I will always remember with great fondness.
This last weekend I went to the coast with my aunts, gram, and cousins for a gal’s trip. We shopped till we dropped and indulged in tasty treats. We had a blast staying up late chatting, searching for sweet sales, and scoping out the sights. I was very sad to see sheets draped back over the couches and beds, the doors locked, and all our gear loaded up. It kind of drove home to me the meaning of bittersweet.
We were so thrilled to haul our cookies over there. The excitement was tangible and stayed thick in the air right up until the realization that it was time to head back to real life smacked us in face. We were leaving the cool weather, the fantastic company, and good times. It was really hard accept that our time together had finally come to an end. The whole way home, back to the dry heat of CA’s Central Valley, we laughed and joked about the fun we had, but more importantly, we made plans for our trip next year.
Whether it’s the end of a vacation or the closing of a well-loved blog, it’s always going to be bittersweet. BUT– we can’t spend our lives looking back. We’ve got to press onward!
I’ll keep on my journey to finish my MS and get published. I’ll still be posting away at The Lovestruck Novice. December 30th, I’ll begin another chapter when I become a mama for the third time. Like cogs inside a wheel, everything is falling into place. I can see the road ahead of me. Sure it’s lined with speed bumps and delays, but as long as I stay the course I’ll get there in plenty of time.
The same goes for all of you. Stick to your course and stay true to your goals. Doesn’t matter if you’re a writer or a reader, this blog made our paths cross. For that, I’ll always be grateful.
Thank you from the bottom of my heart, MW’s. I hope we’ll all get a chance to meet one day and share a frosty beverage. Keep looking forward, because the best is yet to come.
Dish it up, what has been your favorite aspect of being part of the Mama Writers Blog?
Love and Hugs to you all! May you always have fair weather and a full tank! Sarah
