I owe my readers a big Big apology for my absence in writing without giving an explanation to my seemingly online disappearance.
As you know, I am the proud father of a precious child, my dear Catherine. I have enjoyed spending this time with her. No event in my life has refocused my orientation and thinking like having a newborn that is fully dependent on her parents. There is no greater joy than being able to share time and love with my family. My wife and I feel extremely blessed with our daughter and have enjoyed our time together with her. I find myself often in tears just thinking about her when I find myself stuck on Southern California freeways or just looking at her precious blue eyes.
Along with the joy and challenge of starting a family, my work life became extremely challenging. I am a small business owner and seldom do I have the luxury of leaving the job behind. Between my daughter, my wife and my work, something in life had to give so I could get through this period of my life in a healthy way.
I froze out my blogging, not even checking my email, turning away so many friendships that I had made online. To those of you who were faithful readers or supporters of this blog and me and my family, I apologize. I am not sure exactly how I will work blogging into my life, but I can say that I want to return to doing it regularly.
I am sitting currently at the GodBlogCon gathering at Biola University. I have had an opportunity to meet many fine bloggers face to face and to renew ties with those from the SCBA. This conference has renewed my desire to reconnect and blog again.
Hopefully soon I will have something of value to say again. Thank you for your friendship and patience.
