The Gift of A Computer

This past July I wrote about my computer trouble. After writing, almost daily, on this blog for more than 2 years, my computer died.  It was shocking. Mr. White and I had saved for years to buy that computer. Now it was gone.  Of course I went through a withdrawal period . .  I missed writing my visits, and doing my review work. It was hard to adjust.
But slowly, I began to accept it. I visited my local library once or twice a week and did my best to keep up the blog. I wrote when I could.  It was much harder to write on my way home from an errand, when I was used to writing early in the morning while my family was still sleeping.

Many times I had ideas for posts, but had to let them go. Instead, I focused more on home, cleaning, baking and regular life. But I missed those morning visits.

At some point, I accepted that I would not have another computer. I gave up. . .

That's when it happened. . . Someone in my area gave me their old laptop computer!   I could not believe it! I was so grateful!

I have spent the last 2 weeks learning to use it. A few days ago, Mr. White set up an area in our house, with an old desk for me.  I now have a quiet, special place for my "new" laptop.   This is a tremendous blessing!

I am ready to get back to writing on a regular basis. Thank you so much for your patience!

This is such good news! My heart broke for you when you lost your computer...I sent up pleading prayers as I'm sure you and others did also..God is so good and He knew and understood the desires of our heart. You have an important message and a love for the home and how to be a homemaker and so He made sure that your words would not be limited. xo

HUZZAH and HOORAY! You are back, most gracious lady, and I am thrilled.

God is so good, isn't He? Maybe He just felt you needed a break from advising all of out here who are too hard headed to listen sometimes. I have missed your simple Godly wisdom.

Again, welcome back.

I, too, write on an second hand computer that was given to us five years ago. I have no idea how old it is. I certainly hope it doesn't die. It has all our photos and many records on it!

Be blessed!
