I haven’t posted anything nor responded to any comments on this blog for a long time. I am not quite sure why. Perhaps it is because life got busy. I had my baby, who is now already 2 years old. I’m working full-time (and then some). Perhaps it is because I made the blogger’s ultimate-decision: to share with family or not to share? (I shared.) Perhaps it is because I have not been close to my Muslim identity, not as close as I was throughout my pregnancy.
I have been struggling spiritually lately and I realized that part of my inner jihad comes from my lack of access to other Muslims going through the same things I am. I know you are out there, I know how to get to you, but I have neither the time nor the resources to reach you. Except through this blog.
When I was blogging, hearing from other Muslim readers and bloggers was such a support to me. Living in an area (as many of us are) with a low population of Muslims, it has become much more difficult for me to find time to reflect, pray and worship with others who know, understand and care about the same things that I do. I always felt a strong support from the online community of Muslim bloggers, and I am hoping to re-connect with some of the Muslims (and new sisters and brothers) that I used to converse with when I used to maintain this blog.
Forgive me for my absence and my desertion of “Ace is the Place.” I truly desire to make more regular visits to this blog, not only for the support and friendship it has created for me, but also to provide guidance and wisdom to those who may be new to Islam and still learning their way around.
Thank you to those who return, and welcome to new visitors.
