Wondering Wednesday is a new weekly post started by my wonderful blogging friend Jessica over at A Baker’s Perspective. The idea is to give readers a chance to get to know the blogger behind all of the book reviews and other blog posts. I think this is a great idea and I’m glad to be a part of the fun
Question: Looking back on 2020, what is something that had a big impact on you?
Admittedly this is a question I didn’t much want to answer. The easy answer for everyone would be Covid. There’s no doubt that everyone has been affected in some way, shape, or form in varying degrees. To say that this year has been a difficult would be an understatement. You may have noticed that I have taken a back seat when it comes to blogging quite a bit this year. I’m not as social visiting and I’m not as regular posting. My reading hasn’t been the same, though thankfully that’s starting to get back to normal and I’m able to focus again. I know there are local people that read my blog, but I’m not sure how regularly, and believe it or not this is probably still able to come as a surprise to some both because of the Covid distancing and the way things have been handled. My husband and I have been separated since May. Not that I would wish it during any other time either, but I wouldn’t wish going through something like this on anyone the way the world is right now. In the beginning it granted privacy, but it has also made isolation harder. While I’m still dealing with a lot of emotions in my life right now, I do have to admit that while I’m obviously upset by the betrayal, at least I now know. And the only obedience to God I have control over is my own. I am not going to post details here. I’ve been quiet on other social media as well. I’m still figuring out what my new normal will be in a world that’s not normal itself. I have no intentions on quitting my blogging, but it may take me a while longer to get back to the full swing of things. I know I haven’t been sharing as many reviews lately, but hopefully that will start to change as I’ve been able to back into reading more.
I have said MANY times this year, that God knew I needed 2019 to get me through 2020 and I can’t tell you how true of a statement that continues to be. Many of my bookish friends that I met and hung out with last year have been a HUGE support to me this year, and they’ve been the sunshine I needed on my rainy days. If you’re one of those friends—thank you, from the bottom of my heart. I thank God for every single one of you <3 I don’t know what I would do without you.
