missing in action

I have been missing in action...so to speak...juggling various things has kept me too busy to even get into the blogs. Tonight I made a special effort to catch up with some of my blog reading- and I figured I'd toss in a short post! 

Let's see....what are some of the things I've been juggling? My hubby fell very ill last Monday. It was one of those freak things- he was fine one moment and then horribly ill the next. Thankfully he is back to himself - almost 100 percent. 

There were programs to attend- people to meet- places to be- you get the idea. I had to schedule myself to breathe.

I meet many people who have the complaint of being 'bored' with life- and my husband and I have discussed this on countless occasions..."What would it feel like to be bored???"...."What would it feel like to be lonely??"....I guess these are some of the things I should be grateful for...that I have no clue what it feels like to be bored...that I can't fathom being lonely...what a blessing!!! Sometimes we just take things for granted...we even gripe a bit..."Oh I'm soo busy" or "Oh my, I'm 'peopled' out"...not realizing these are such great blessings!!

Whether I'm sitting here at this computer or I'm missing in action- I am drowning in blessings!

  1. I am glad that your husband has recovered now. You have such a beautiful heart that nothing wrong can happen to you or your dear ones. God is great and He manages everything.

    And it is okay to be missing from blogworld occasionally. I am doing so from tomorrow onwards. haha :D

  2. Good your husband has recovered. I have been missing too for three weeks now. I am almost back to routine. I did not have internet access for 2 weeks but now I am back home. Will start writing as soon as I have tackled jet lag.

  3. I love the concept of drowning in blessings. And it's funny that you'd write about people who feel bored and/or lonely. I was just reading the first chapter in a book called Happy Yoga that spoke about how solitary confinement (in prisons, yes) can be a blessing, as it provides the time to go inside yourself and reflect. You learn what you're like in terms of your natural response to what some might think of as a grim situation. It could be a blessing, depending on how you perceive this time alone. Thus, being alone and lonely are two different things. And time alone can be a very good thing, as you've seen for yourself.

  6. Glad you are back. Sorry your husband was ill. Yes, bored is hard to understand, harder than lonely.

  7. @ Nisha- I can't wait for you to return from your trip & tell us ALL about it :)

    @ A- looking forward to more of your updates

    @ Jackie- ah yes, time alone is most wonderful :)

    @ Mr. Lonely - thank you for the visit, I also visited your blog and realize we are from a similar location- do you hail from Malaysia?

    @ Ajeya - that is the key to enjoy life!!

    @ Alexandra - My husband is doing so much better! It is good to be back- although the busy schedule is seeming to keep me away from being consistent- I'm trying though :)

  12. Anjuli - I've noticed you've been missing but so have I. Sorry to hear of your husband's illness, glad to hear he's fine again. BTW - I'm totally with you on the being bored issue, I just don't understand how anyone could be bored! I am forever pushing a pile of things ahead of me I'd like to do, to say nothing of the things I have to do!
