Still running for the cheese (or why this blog still exists)

As my regular readers can tell, this has been a dry year for me. Just look at the number of posts this year vs. 2008! Awhile back, I had considered either shutting down the Maze, or starting a new blog that would more accurately reflect where I am in life now. Truth be told, sometimes I come here, look around, and feel distinctly hypocrytical about the things I want to write. I'm sure I'm not the only one to ever be in that kind of place.
As the time in between posts has grown longer, I came to realize something. Without the past years' material, where I am now makes very little sense. What good is the destination without the journey? As Christians, so much of the best stuff that happens to us is in the times God is molding us to His image. To throw away the evidence of that process would somehow cheapen the result, I think.
So, here we are, dear friends. I think my little mousie may just have rounded a corner finally. Some things will change around here to reflect the changes in my heart. And you know what? That's ok. As much as I typically rage against anything changed in my life, I'm learning to accept the God-given ones. My prayer is that some of you may be encouraged by what you read here. Hey, you may even be challenged. And of course, if you know me, then you know you always stand a good chance of being offended too. Not intentionally, to be sure! Just know that what you find as you wander this Maze with me may surprise you as much as it does me.

All that to say this:

Monday Meme

This week has flown by! So you know what time it is! Meme me baby one more time!

1) If you had to exchange souls with someone you know for one day, who would you pick? Hmmm. Either Mr. P. so I could gain more insight into what makes him tick (incidentally, he's my Timex...don't ask), or one of the supermoms I know so I can see how it's done firsthand.
2) When were you happiest to come home? Probably every time since we've lived here. I've got lots of great memories of this place.
3) What is your favorite part of the yesterday? Taking a nap while the kids were with SIL and her gf. Yeah, that was good.
4) What has been your greatest accomplishment in life so far? This, right now. Ain't it grand?
5) Show and Tell. What comes to mind first when you see this picture? Or, tell a story if it reminds you of one.
Heheheh. Someone took the time to hang up their stuff before gettin' it on. Heheheh.

Til next squeak,
