A few days ago, a person on my twitter feed that I occasionally converse with posted a statement about blogging writers block. I commented that I hadn't been really able to write on my blog for about three years.
"Why do you think?" she asked.
I couldn't answer.
The answer came to me tonight as I was reading the epilogue for "Bitter is the New Black" by Jen Lancaster.
When going through the application process for becoming missionaries (yeah, I still think, "Really, ME? Are you kidding???) a friend of mine who grew up in the mission field told me she put on her reference:
"Lora would be a really good missionary because she has the ability to laugh at the absurd."
I realize now that while I definitely have the ability to laugh at the absurd, I'd forgotten to do so. Probably part of why the last few years have been very, very hard.
So here's to laughing at the absurd. I wonder if I can somehow get that dang cat wallpaper back that I had a few years ago. Just kidding. Maybe.
