Lately, the voice inside me has grown quiet. I have retreated in solitude, and reflection.

Things are fine at home, my relationships are good. I can't really complain about anything.

My boys are getting older, and I'm slowly letting them go. They're changing, maturing faster right before my eyes. And it's incredible to see them transform.

Whatever happened to all the mentors for young boys? There's not enough of them these days.

I've already told my husband that he will have to play a more active role in their lives. I can only encourage it.

I feel like I'm at a crossroads. And that change is coming.

Or maybe, I just need a good long break.


  1. I know that feeling and I always brace myself, but change is good right?

  2. I am smiling at your post Melanie. I believe that is the same feeling our mothers had in our growing years. But do not fret. You taught your young boys good family values. I am pretty sure, they will remember their mommy at all times. Their great mentor in life. :)

  3. Hey there! I just stumbled upon your blog and I wanted to let you know how much I LOVE it! great post. I will be back for more!

  4. Yep, I guessed you need a break now.. sort of like a break of thoughts and some changes before the new year is here.. a change for almost every and anything..

    Oh yes, almost forgot; tingvine and tingsaying has ceased as of today but they will continue at tingtasy.. Yep, due to link virus and I only managed to fix Tingtasy so yeah, decided to put everything in there.. So, do drop by at tingtasy for the usual write on tingvine.. It will be still of faith and verser sharing from bible..

    See you around.. my foot is recovering but has yet fully recovered so am taking time (slow) for almost everything.. :)
