It's Time, Dear Ones, I'm Saying Goodbye to Blogland

Hello, Dear Ones. It is with a sad heart that I come to you today to say I am no longer going to post on my blog. I have tried a few times in the past to stop blogging, but I just couldn't but today I feel it is the right thing for me to do.

I have been blogging since the summer of 2008!! I can hardly believe it! It has been such a wonderful experience. I have met so many wonderful folks whom I'll probably never meet face to face but we are joined by our hearts and you are my friends.
I have so enjoyed sharing my life with you and you with me. We've been together through hurricanes, deaths of loved ones, pets, moves and the birth of grandchildren.
Some of my favorite recipes have come from you and I have written your sweet names on my recipe cards. I have learned so much from you through sewing, crafting and decorating.
But most of all, I have felt your heart. We have rejoiced together and cried together. You will always be in my heart and we will still run into each other on Facebook if you check that out from time to time.
So I will leave you and Blogland with my love and a tiny tear in my eye. I'll go ahead and leave my blog up. Who knows what Blogger does with the poor little left alone blogs. Hopefully you'll come back and visit from time to time. You have meant so much to me and this journey has been a wonderful one.

You will always be my sweeties,

Shelia :)

I'll leave you with a little Note Song ~

 

Friends

Packing up the dreams God planted
In the fertile soil of you
I can't believe the hopes He's granted
Means a chapter of your life is through

But we'll keep you close as always
It won't even seem you've gone
'Cause our hearts in big and small ways
Will keep the love that keeps us strong

And friends are friends forever
If the Lord's the Lord of them
And a friend will not say never
'Cause the welcome will not end
Though it's hard to let you go
In the Father's hands we know
That a lifetime's not too long
To live as friends

And with the faith and love God's given
Springing from the hope we know
We will pray the joy you live in
Is the strength that now you show

We'll keep you close as always
It won't even seem you've gone
'Cause our hearts in big and small ways
Will keep the love that keeps us strong

And friends are friends forever
If the Lord's the Lord of them
And a friend will not say never
'Cause the welcome will not end
Though it's hard to let you go
In the Father's hands we know
That a lifetime's not too long
To live as friends

And friends are friends forever
If the Lord's the Lord of them
And a friend will not say never
'Cause the welcome will not end
Though it's hard to let you go
In the Father's hands we know
That a lifetime's not too long
To live as friends

To live as friends

Though it's hard to let you go
In the Father's hands we know
That a lifetime's not too long
To live as friends

No a lifetime's not too long
To live as friends
