I need to talk


I have a big problem. I have a need to talk – far too much. My husband gets tired of me, my friends get tired of me. I’ll have to take care that even my counselor doesn’t get tired of me.

I talk to God by writing prayers in my journal – often several times a day. I write emails – far too many I’ve been told.

There is so much to talk about. So much that needs to be said. Such a long life (70 years worth) of memories that I sometimes reflect on – a life from which I’ve learned and want to share with others.

What to do? I don’t want to lose friends over this. I don’t want my counselor – a person who I pay to listen – to think to himself  “Here we go again.”  And my husband…my poor husband. A man who doesn’t even share my faith, yet has to listen to me talk – too frequently – about God and how He has been showing Himself to me.

The answer, I believe, is to write a lot more, here on my blog. Soon my weekly devotionals will also be posted here. There will be much for people to read. And, hopefully lots of people to hear what I need to say. This way I’m hoping not to lose friends. Might I even gain some online friends?

Hopefully I won’t need to talk as much to husband and he will be a much happier man. And I will be a happier woman.
