My handwritten absence excuse note...

Photobucket

I am sorry to have been away for so long. We've had a tough couple of months, and I've been very stressed out, withdrawn, and grumpy in general. There have been so many times when I've thought "OK, I should just let everyone know what is going on...they will relate...they will be supportive" - but, frankly I didn't want to bring anyone down. In this day and age (read - this economy), our problems are minor, and just watching the news for a few minutes would remind us of our blessings. Still, it is hard to be in financial limbo, even in the strongest of families. So many of our prayers have already been answered, and we know that we are making choices that will lead us to a very peaceful, fulfilled existence. I usually try to keep this blog pretty happy-crafty, but I feel like I owe it to you to share some of our recent trials and tribulations. I'm sure many of you have had similar experiences, or if you haven't, you can still relate and share some much needed warm hugs and encouragement. I have truly missed my "bloggy friends!"

Hang in there!

Every 7th year is bad for us. 2003, 2010...probably steer clear of me in 2017.

Glad to hear things are looking better for you. Sometimes life is really hard, but then the sun comes out. So, I hope the sun will shine on you and your family. I love your work so I hope to see more of it soon.
