Today completes my tenth year of participating in the Slice of Life Challenge. It has been a life changing experience for me. There have been many moments of growth, encouragement, and learning along the way.
I feel like I have made some new friends, even though I have never met them face to face and sometimes don’t even know their whole names. Yet that is not necessary for being true soul mates, and that’s what I consider them to be.
I am most grateful to the Two Writing Teachers blog for setting this up and keeping it going. They have done a wonderful job, every year. It can’t be easy. I hope it has been as rewarding to them as it has been to me.
In particular, this year has provided the opening of a special path for me. Since last year’s shut down I have found it very hard to write – even though it all began during last March’s challenge, and I did complete that. But after that time, honestly, I have sometimes had trouble even gathering my thoughts, much less putting them down on “paper.”
As always, this challenge has encouraged me to step up to the plate again. I don’t feel like my posts have been as well done as some in years past, but it is a new start, and for this season that is worth so much.
Again, I am grateful.
I always say I’ll write regularly from now on, but it never happens, so I’ll keep that thought in my pocket for now. Maybe I’ll do better. I hope. We shall see. If I do not, I will be the one missing out.
Writing causes me to have an “examined life,” and helps me be the person I am meant to be.

Thank you, Two Writing Teachers, for another good month of March writing.
