Although my blogging journey seemed to begin and suddenly come to a halt, things have been moving at warp speed! So much has happened over the past few months. Things have been exciting, amazing, heart breaking, inspiring and all life changing! It seems like I am always saying to myself: “I really should blog about this because it’s amazing in some way”, then that event falls behind something else that happens. So I do have to get a rhythm going and figure out how I can work best with this blog so that I can start sharing all of these moments with you. I am starting to think that small posts more often are going to be the way to go. I feel like I have such an exciting life and there is so much to share with you – both the good and the bad.
I believe that this is a great way to share my life experiences with all of my best friends and loved ones. I am also conscious that a few people who I wouldn’t necessarily normally give my attention to will be able to access or glimpse into my life, this part of blogging will take some getting used to for me. I am usually a fly below the radar kind of guy but I guess change is good! Many of my friends have started blogs and have actually revealed their previously secret aptitude for blogging. I will link to them as much as I can and will include some of my favorite blogs on my homepage for you all to enjoy. Like I said, the past few months have included huge highs and huge lows but I realize that is what makes life so great, being able to recognize the range of emotions and events so that we can appreciate them. I’m so thankful to God and I try to celebrate all experiences he chooses to bless me with.
One of the best moments of my entire life happened just recently when my son, Wyatt Claude Hamilton, was born. He arrived early and even though I knew he was going to soon be a part of my life, it still took me by surprise. I guess there is really no way to be fully prepared for your first child. I will continue to share more about little Wyatt, and will also share a slideshow of some photos of him for you all soon. I am enjoying Wyatt so much. I cannot seem to hold him, feed him, burp him or change him enough. I have already spent many hours with him in my arms through the night, rocking him in a special chair that I bought for that purpose. I can’t remember the last time that I was able to sit still for that long and I can barely get through a movie without fidgeting, sending emails or talking but for some reason, I can sit silently for hours watching Wyatt’s face as he sleeps. I think about his future and the role that I want to play in it and it is all so very exciting.
Despite the lack of posts since the inauguration of this blog, I am looking forward to getting better at maintaining it and adding value to anyone who wants to share my journey and I welcome you to share yours with me! Although I struggle at times with finding the balance between sharing and keeping some privacy, I will have to walk that line as I go along. Stay tuned for my best attempts to make this blog worth following!
Fight fiercely, yours in victory,
