Hi lovely blog visiter! Maybe it’s your first time at Play on the Word, or maybe you’ve been a faithful reader for the six years I’ve been taking up space here. Either way, you’re really welcome and you’re also really welcome to look around and have a lovely time reading at the things I’ve written about our family, adoption, Jesus and play.
There are even some free resources you can download!
But if you’re coming here for something new you will be disappointed. I’ve decided it’s time to let this happy season of blogging end. This website has been a very special place for me – I’ve met new friends (yes, online friends can be real friends!), shared and saved precious memories, given you a glimpse into how we try to teach our kids about Jesus and been so cared for by you lovely readers when I have shared hard things and my struggles.
This blog has also been the place where I’ve been allowed to grow into a writer. I’ve always wanted to be a writer and this blog has built my confidence and kept my words alive in the crazy time of raising tiny children.
This is a new season in my life. I’m no-longer a Mum to pre-schoolers, I’ve had my first book published and I’m relishing writing my first novel. I think it’s time to end the story I’ve been writing here and concentrate on a new one.
I want to thank you so much for letting this be a safe place. This has been a place of blessing and encouragement. I’ve never felt judged or criticised – and you know how unusual that is in the world of the internet! I hope many of you will keep in touch. Feel free to add me on facebook or twitter (@alicecrumbs) – make sure you tell me who you are or I might ignore you by accident! Or you can drop me an email at alicebuckley [at] rocketmail [dot] com.
Thank you for a very happy six years.
ps. In 2015 I’ll be switching off the ability to comment on this blog – so if you want to say anything it’s probably best to do it now!
