Back to Blogging?

Look at me!! I'm blogging!!! I went through Wheelbarrow Manora long period of being stressed out about blogging and then decided it was not something worth stressing about.

I was going to shut it down because I thought maybe it's "life" was over. Do you believe blogs have "lives"? Do you know what I mean by that? I chose the name Wheelbarrow Manor because we had gone through a long period of really being IN the wheelbarrow - white knuckling that wheelbarrow to be really honest about it. But it's been a while since we were in that position. 

I was going to start a new blog...but I couldn't think of a name or an inspiration for it.  The fact is, no matter our work, financial or other life circumstances are, we always NEED to be in the wheelbarrow.  When we try to get out and control things ourselves, that is when we get in trouble.

The truth is, I think I got away from the reason I started blogging in the first place, which was to document the lives going on in the Wheelbarrow Manor.  Doug and I, our kids, our journey.  The secondary reason I wanted to blog was to shed light on the beauty of the Church's teachings on being open to life and using NFP versus contraception.  Along the way, I got wrapped up in the blogging world - wanting to have lots of followers and be well known in the blogging community.  I lost focus and perspective and when it wasn't going how I wanted, I got frustrated and didn't want to do it anymore.

So, I'm not going to put any pressure on myself.  I'm just going to focus on blogging to document our lives.  There are many exciting things going on in our lives and I'm excited to post them here for posterity...and if anyone happens to read and enjoy sharing in our lives then all the better!!
