Happy 4 Years

Dear A Momma’s View

I thought long and hard how to best approach this. I could have simply written a post about our 4 years together, explain what creating you and connecting with you and all the wonderful blogs out there means to me. Instead I decided on writing a little letter to you.

First of all: Happy 4th anniversary! I can’t believe we celebrate 4 years together already. Time has flown by. So much has happened and I admit, I haven’t paid you the attention I would like to recently. I’m sorry I neglected you over the last couple of months and I truly hope I will be able to spend more time with you again.

Let me tell you how much you mean to me. You might think you are “just” a blog. The same way I sometimes think I’m “just” a mom. But we are so much more. You are so much more! Over all this time you have given me so much. You were an outlet for my thoughts, my frustrations, my worries, my fear and my joy. You were the connecting link to so many people out there, also writing their hearts out, sharing their thoughts, frustrations, worries, fears, joys with the world. You have opened the door to so many virtual friendships but you have also given me confidence.

Confidence that I can express myself. Confidence that I’m much more than I often think. Confidence that my thoughts can be shared and that they might not be as out of wack as I might think they are. You are also a way to relive my memories. Because I share them thanks to you.

We’ve seen some crazy stats together. So often I was wowed about the attention we got. Yes, it’s a bit more quiet at the moment but this is because I couldn’t really be there with you. It’s not you, don’t worry. And I know if we really want it, we will see the crazy stats again. But let’s take it easy and just enjoy. Enjoy what we have. The community.

Dear A Momma’s View, I simply would like to say thank you. For all you’ve done for me. For all the connections I made thanks to you. For all I’ve learned thanks to you. I’d like to say thank you for always being there for me, just a click away. For being patient with me, for making me laugh and cry. It’s been a blast and I’m looking forward to many more years together and connecting with other blog(ger)s out there, sharing what we all want to share but most of all our passion for blogging.

Happy 4th Anniversary

The Emptiness In Your Head

My heart is full. I’m happy. Life is good and we all have a wonderful time. I’m not just painting a picture. I really think that sometimes when you have to face some obstacles your perspective shifts and you appreciate all the little things.

While my hear is full I feel like my head is empty. A dangerous statement to make, right? Now, don’t get me wrong. I’m not saying that I can’t think anymore. My head is empty in regards to writing. Over the last couple of weeks I came to the conclusion that writer’s block is real and it feels rather painful.

My Picks Of The Week 2017 – #39 & #40

Yeah, it happened again. I didn’t get to read much last week and decided to combine my picks of the week posts this week into one and hopefully have enough great content (which I do).

I had this discussion with my son lately about how the time seems to fly by. Funny to hear a teenager complain about it too. Also interesting that he feels that way as for me it actually got so much better since mid this year. While I’m still surprised that we have already reached the time where shops put up all their Christmas stuff (personally find October way too early for it…) I still felt the last couple of months didn’t just disappear on me.

But back to my picks of the week. Hope you all enjoy them as much as I did. Have a fantastic weekend you all ๐Ÿ™‚

My Picks Of The Week 2017 – #37

It’s been a while since I shared my last picks of the week and I was wondering if I should number it according to the number of the week in this year or the number of these kind of posts I put up. I decided on the last one. Can you believe that there are only just about 13 weeks left in this year? Crazy, right?

Well, anyway. I had a little bit of time to read through some of my favorite blogs and here are the posts I enjoyed a lot this week. While creating this post I realized though, that when I read them I neither liked nor commented on them… I did today though ;-). So here they are, my picks of this week. Hope you enjoy and that you all spent an amazing weekend ๐Ÿ™‚

My Picks Of The Week 2017 – #36

Another week has passed and this will be a weird kind of weekend as tomorrow there will be no getting up and racing to a soccer game. The season is officially over. Well… the official season is over. Thankfully the girls will play a couple of tournaments still and to be honest I’m looking forward to it. I had a little bit more time on my hand this week and am so happy to have connected with all of you again (at least some of you). I hope everyone is safe. Watching the news and realizing what those powerful storms can do is really an eye opener and makes me appreciate being so safe over here. But who knows what the future has in store for us…

Anyway. Here are my picks for this week. I hope your week was a good one and that you will be able to spend a great weekend with all your loved ones. Happy weekend you all…

Happy 3rd Birthday

This is it. It’s A Momma’s View’s 3rd Birthday! This time I did not miss the day. Not that I was paying attention to it either but I just realized it and then got the nice notification from WordPress. So I figured a toddler needs a party, right? And what better to celebrate with all your friends? So instead of having my monthly blogging party mid month I decided to celebrate today!

Rules? Not really today… just be nice with each other!

Ready? Great! Then letโ€™s party!!!!

A New Experience

So that’s it. A new kind of blogging experience. One that I have dreaded for so long. It’s the experience of not finding time to look after my blog. My “baby” in that sense. A baby that’s turning 3 very soon. And I feel bad.

Like a mother neglecting her child.

But then I neglect this child so I can actually spend more time with my real children.

I’m torn. I love blogging. I love writing my heart out. I love sharing my thoughts and rants and happy moments. I love reading what you put out there and your comments on my posts. I love visiting your blogs and new blogs and comment. But I simply can’t find time at the moment and it drives me crazy.

I need to come up with a new routine as the one I had clearly doesn’t work any longer. I’d like to be back, like to exchange thoughts with you again. But I don’t want this to turn into pressure. Because that’s when things go bad. And as I said, my blog is my baby too and really don’t want it to turn bad. So bare with me ๐Ÿ˜‰

My Picks Of The Week 2017 – #33

The most beautiful days are the ones you don’t expect to turn out that stunning. Not that I expected today to be shabby, but I most definitely would have not thought that we would stand in the sun, feeling the warm rays on our backs all morning while watching soccer. The forecast was for much worse weather and much lower temperatures. I don’t really want to write about weather but I think it’s the little things that can make your day so good. Like the sun being out when you think it would rain. Or a smile from a stranger, a compliment coming from a friend. A hug. Some good food. Music.

I hope your week was a good one and that you end up spending a wonderful weekend with you loved ones. I know your eyes are set on the eclipse (at least those of you who will be able to witness it). Enjoy. It’s one of those things too…

Here are the posts I loved reading this week. Hope you will enjoy them as well. Have a happy weekend you all ๐Ÿ™‚
