You might as well be hearing crickets, with all the non-activity going on at The Daily Snapshot lately.
I've always tried to use my blog as a journal. A way to spiral out my feelings, to chronicle the changes I was going through. I love that I can see the journal of the past five years - from gaining a husband, to losing a community, to finding one again.
But lately, there hasn't been anything to journal. Life is normal. We have a dog. We bought a house. We're still working at the same jobs. Well, Jordan is trying to start his own business, but since that is only in the beginning stages, life doesn't feel much different.
Though no one has specifically said anything to me, I get the feeling I'm not supposed to be okay with the quiet. I'm supposed to look for the next thing to do. After our five year anniversary, I noticed a definite increase in the amount of people asking me if we had kids. I know five year sounds like a long-ish time to be married, and people are being kind, but no. We're happy in our child-free lives right now. We also don't know what kind of family God is forming for us, since I continue to (try to) pray about fostering.
Maybe things will look very different in a year. Maybe life will be at full-steam ahead, and I will look back and yearn for these quiet times.
But for now, I read. (A lot!) We go out dancing. I spend time with friends. I look forward to going to work. Kendel looks cute. And I find joy in the stillness of it all.
