Hello, blogging family.  I hope all's well and that everyone is healthy and happy.

I realize I've been away for quite a while.  To keep things simple, things haven't been going as easily and/or as smoothly as I would have liked and, although it's nothing serious, I'm now having some health issues of my own to deal.  Of course, I'm trying to cope as best  I can but, under the circumstances, my only down time seems to have been "down and out" time.  I've been unable to do anything recreational lately; I've definitely been unable to do any crafting and/or to be a constant here in the neighborhood.  Although I sorely miss you all and all the blogland activities, I haven't intentionally neglected my blog nor any of you, you have all been in my thoughts and prayers.  I only wish I could tell you how much I miss being here to the extent you could really understand.

As of now I hate to say I cannot commit to any regularity or frequent visits here but I do expect to have some time Thursday -- I'm not promising anything but I would love, and am anticipating, being able to do some crafting ( I desperately miss my hobby) and getting in some visits with you.  I wish I could be more definite but at this time I'm taking one step at a time.  Anyway, I am looking forward to Thursday with high hopes; I think I'm deserving of a bit of fun... lol!

Now to those of you who have emailed me, not to overlook your concerns, thank you so much for your prayers and your emails; I'll respond to you as soon as I can.  And, to Sandy, who really helped in keeping me grounded through her constant reaching out; providing an ear when it wasn't expected and always a prayer just when it was needed -- a very special "thank you". 

As I understand it, several of my family-friends have also had some life/family experiences or difficulties.  If any of you are visiting, I really hate I wasn't around to provide some words of comfort and encouragement during your time of need but please know as you are now, you've always been in my prayers

Again, I'm hoping to be able to share some time with you on Thursday or shortly thereafter; however, if I don't make it, please know it's because I couldn't make it -- but that I'll be here as soon as I can.

I love you all, miss you all, and I'll be seeing you...
