Sometimes big life makes everything petty and small like blogs seem like a waste of time. The last time I posted was June 18th. At the time, I was a few weeks behind on posting my newspaper articles to this blog, but had plans to get everything updated and current that week.
On the 19th, we lost my brother unexpectedly in a helicopter crash. Everything else screeched to a halt.
My brother was an amazing man. Please read his life story posted on the Hoff Funeral Home website. Husband, dad, pilot, farmer, believer. He accomplished so much in 44 years.
In the weeks since, I’ve written about him many times. I’m back to my blog again because I want to share those things on the website where many people have access to them.
My dilemma is, though, that I was behind before that. I have about four articles to post from beforehand, which now seem weird to post with all that’s happened since.
It’s a good reminder to me to just keep things current on here, and not have this sort of problem of posting articles a month (or more) after their written.
Anyway, I’m back to posting on the blog again. I plan to post many of my already-published articles in the next few weeks. I’d love it if you read them, especially the ones about my brother.
