I'm So Sorry! :(

Oh, Dear Ones, I'm so sorry but the time has come for me to take a little blogging rest! It's so hard because blogging and you have become such a big part of my life! Mother is still living with us and she really is doing so much better and I thank you all for your continued support and prayers...but I feel a little over burdened at the moment! Just need a little rest and then I'll come back all refreshed.

Stay where you are and I'll be back in a week or so!! Don't forget about me!!

You are all my sweeties,
Shelia ;)

  20. Shelia:

    This actually makes me feel good because while right now I can post everyday and visit all of my blog roll, even the ones who post more than once!!!!, there will come times this summer when I will need to cut way back and I want to know that the friends I have made will still be around. I will wait for you. You have a lovely break.

    Have a Thankful Thursday

  24. Oh Sheila we should ALL do that! As much fun as blogging is, we all need a respite from it now and then. It was exciting to meet you and how wonderful that your mom lives with you...somehow that makes perfect sense though. See you when you get back and thanks for your "quick" responses on these blogs. I can see that you are loved by many women in this forum. Hope you come back all rested up...I'll be back to check on you.:)

  33. Good morning dear Shelia ...I so understand your need for a tiny break from blogland. Though I have been blogging for a relatively short time, I also have seriously considered 'stepping away' from the self-imposed pressure. We aren't going anywhere, even if we don't blog on a consistent basis ~ the friendship and bond has been created. You are quite unique you know.

    ReplyDelete
  34. Forget about you? Don't be a silly!! We love you and will be right here waiting for you. Put your tiny feetsies up on that softer than soft footstool and relax. You are a delight in my life, Shelia.
    Hugs,
    Mona

  35. Just don't leave us forever! I'll miss you.
    When you do come back, don't make blogging a chore. Just blog when you have the time and feel like it.
    Hugs to your mom.

  45. So glad to hear things are good with your mom.
    I, too, am getting ready to rest for awhile. When all you think about is blogging, and what you are going to post, and how many comments do you have time to leave and ...and....THEN it's time to take a break!!
    Have fun!

  46. The blog world itself can be overwhelming sometimes. Take a much needed break and get some rest and relaxtion. Hopefully, you will come back with great inspiration and a restored heart and mind for sharing with us.
    p.s. in answer to your question about my wife's meta...Monday bathroom....she used old text book pages to wrap the cans.

  55. How could we ever forget about you Shelia!

  77. I can sympathize with the stress caring for a parent causes. Easy to say, take care of yourself, but it is not always possible. You must learn to rest WHENEVER it is possible. Night time seems to burden your mind with problems, so take naps during the day. Being tired makes doing almost anything hard. Praying for you all.

    ReplyDelete
  78. Ok You have had enough rest!!! We want you back! Well only if you are ready to come play!!! Kathy

  80. Well, dear ladyness...I am just about beside myself, wondering how things are going with you. I hope things are good and you are getting a much needed rest.

  84. Enjoy you break dear Shelia. I also feel better after giving myself permission to take a break.
    Enjoy your mom, your hubby your fur baby and anything else you have been missing. We all need time to rejuvenate.
    I adore your Springness, and your beautiful little piano clock from Jan and Tom.
    Your daughters cute hair cut in her picture reminds me of my hair...I always had it short like that forever.
    I also see that Laurie passed on my "Shoe" award to you. So deserved. I'm glad you have one.
    I will miss you but take as much time as you need.
    Love Claudie
