WELCOME!

WELCOME!

Hello everyone! I am thrilled to have you visit with me and I hope you enjoy your stay. I absolutely love company, sharing, and making new friends so I hope you find something here that inspires, motivates, or just pleases you in some way.

Of course, I love to visit and be inspired also. So if I don't already drop in on you, please let me know where I can find you and I'll hop on over to see what you're doing or to just say "hi".

Before you go, I would love it if you'd please leave me a comment letting me know you dropped in! Actually, I'd just love to hear from you -- comments, opinions, or questions you'd like me to answer.

In the meantime, relax and make yourselves at home... you're family here!!!

I'll be seeing you!

THERE COMES A TIME...

Hello, family-friends and a very happy NCD to you!

Sorry I've been delinquent, however, things are so that I haven't had time for the things I most enjoy and love.  Being that I'm otherwise occupied right now with family and finding less time than ever, a time has come where I have had to make the difficult decision of,  at least for a while, having to forsake my blog and blog-family with an "I'll have to see you all later" -- but not good-bye.  

My intent is this will only be a temporary leave until things get back on track and back to some normalcy; therefore, I will not be closing down my blog.  However, in the meantime, crafting and blogging is just not convenient for me with all else needing to be done.  Although I hope and look forward to returning soon, at least for now, I have to deal with the hand I've been dealt as best I can and it doesn't look like it's going to change too soon from where I'm standing.

I will check in when I can but as things are progressing right now I can't promise or say how soon that will be.  Of course, I love you all and will miss you, and I pray you'll continue to be happy and well.  I'm treating my situation as having to ask some family members (you) to please excuse me while I step aside to care for those that needs tending to.  It is painful for me to have to do this.

I didn't think it right to keep you "on hold" and/or wondering about me, so I made certain I took this opportunity of a free moment to provide you an explanation.  Please know until I can return you'll be in my thoughts -- right at the forefront of my mind.  Again, I will check in when I can but I pray you understand.

Hugs to you, I certainly love you and, and look forward to returning soon.

Thank you for being who you are, thank you for stopping by, and

I WILL be seeing you!

Audrey, lovely friend and lady; please do not fret we will be here when you return.
I, for one, understand and will keep you in prayer.
No need to try and return my emails or stay in touch because I know you will come back when life is more settled for you.
I will continue to drop a wee line now and again but don't feel you have to get back as I know you will when you can in the future.
No pressure dear lady
Hugs

Audrey, I hope everything turns around for you and your family soon. Your work is fabulous and we will miss it but family comes first! I shall await your return!

Lisa said...

Audrey, I hope that you know you will be thought of while you are away and I will pray for you and your family. I know sometimes this takes a big part of our time away from things that are just as important if not more. I hope that things improve quickly and that God gives you the strength to do what you have to do.
Take Care and be well. :)

Hello Audrey! You know we do understand that priorities have to be made in life. I will always be thinking of you (even as I did when I had to take time off from blogland myself). So, don't worry about anything and do your thing, girl. We'll be here waiting when you have time to poke your head in. You're one of the sweetest bloggers I know and it thrilled me so much to have you back. But I understand other things come first. LOVE YA girl and will be thinking of you!! <>

Hi Audrey! I haven't been around much either, so I thought I'd stop by and wave *me waving*. I hope that even if you don't blog (I know how time consuming it is) that you at least can get a little crafting done here and there for yourself and for some relaxation. ((HUGS)) and hope you're doing well.
