(According to thefreedictionary.com)

Repose: n
1. The act of resting or the state of being at rest.

2. Freedom from worry; peace of mind.

3. Calmness; tranquility.

Repose is one of my favorite words.  I don't have it, and wish I did.  It is my goal.  I need to find a way to incorporate repose into my life.  How I plan on doing it?  Balance.  My entire life I have struggled to find moderation in all things.  I might struggle for my entire life to find balance, but I will always try. 
For the next little while, I am going to post less.  I am going to use the computer a lot less.  I hope you will understand. 
Lots of Love.

(After this post, I am also going to turn off the comments, at least for a little while.)

Let me tell you how good it feels to take a step or two away from the computer. I've been doing that for the past two weeks since Matt's been in town - and closing comments for most of the month. It really makes it easier to post - when you do it for YOU and not worrying what other people will say.

Wishing you a wonderful Thanksgiving... hope all is great in your world! Look forward to getting together one of these days!

Happy Thanksgiving and may you find that repose!

You hadn't posted in a while and I was beginning to worry. I love your posts and I'll miss you but do understand if you need a break.

Hope you had a great Holiday!

Jill said it so well! Sometimes it is just what the Dr. ordered to take a break for a bit. I keep trying to do that with life but then someone needs to eat or can't find their homework or the dishes need to be done or noses need to be wiped or laundry needs to be folded or diapers need to be changed or - well, you get the point :)

I have enjoyed reading your blog, but I certainly understand taking I step back. I hope doing so gives you the perspective and repose you are seeking.
