*stretches luxuriously*

Stretching my calves, I dip my toes onto the cold bedroom floor.  The birds are singing outside and the flowers are ever so slightly beginning to peek their heads out and show themselves.    I stretch, hearing the crack of long unused muscles.  Standing up feels weird.  It’s been a while.  It is all a bit overwhelming.

I look out the window, seeing the world that carries on with or without me.  I’ve missed the world.

As my body stretches and loosens there is optimism.  Fear and anxiety.  Hope and dismay.  I will try my best.  That’s all I can do.  After all, a Mother’s work is never done… and a storm is coming.

    You have to admit, though, that Hurricane Melissa is better than the alternative, Stormy Daniels.

    The only hurricane we eagerly wait for! Welcome back, we are always so happy to hear from our Goddesses again!

    I have to say, the site is already pretty self-sustaining so that’s good. Obviously it does not compare to the site with you two active, but as we know sometimes you and Renee are forced to take these long pauses it’s good that this place can continue a long time without oversight or addition!

    Ohh! Welcome back! After your last news piece involving monster rain storms and the like, was worried things hadn’t went so well. That may still be the case, but it’s good to see you back! ^_^
