m-ai întrebat: why haven't you, priest's wife, posted in a month? short answer: a battle with a rusty nail & summer plans

Is that a long enough post title? Very catchy, I thought....I'm sure many new readers will be searching for information on rusty nails, toe/foot surgery, wives who became de facto home healthcare nurses, celebrating Divine Liturgy on crutches, and the reason why deacons are lifesavers.
I also haven't posted much lately- even before the nail fiasco- because I am a highly busy person. I won't bore readers with details. I am also a highly sensitive person, so when someone writes me an email stating that they like the old posts better than what I have done in the past year or so- it stings. I am also a highly practical person. So many bloggers are doing so much more than I have the time and talent for, so why should I bother? I have been really enjoying and benefiting from the blog, Amongst Lovely Things. Go visit it!
In any case, we shall see what this space becomes. Summer is a time to slow down and enjoy family and friends. We will report back how that is going ! Blessings to all!


  1. Why should you bother?! Don't let people's negativity get you down. It is easy for people to criticize, how about they start a blog! Writing is hard work, especially with all the responsibilities you have. You have a unique voice that needs to be heard, I hope you don't stop blogging.

    I also hope you enjoy your summer!

    God bless,


  2. Thanks Jessica! My big girls are starting 2 college classes and I am teaching tomorrow- what a 'summer' ;)

  3. Yeah... I come here because YOU are writing, not because of what others are saying.

    1. Thanks- Kh Jen... I've been reading some of YOUR comments here- time for a new guest post? ;)

  4. I agree with the first commenter -- you have a unique voice. I enjoy all your posts, old and new. Thanks for posting when you can.

  5. Sarah, you are needed in this world. A perspective not shown to most of the readership and part of the "two lungs of the Church". There's so much to say and your voice is needed.
    God Bless.
