hello watery

WOW- Over 18 months I have been gone. I would apologize but to be honest-I am not sorry. I needed a total break from everything. From always feeling like I had to blog to creating art to keeping my face book up to date etc etc etc.

It has NOT BEEN EASY at all---have gone through some devastating loses in my family that have tore up my heart—to watching my grandchildren grow—to praying that my son stays safe in afgan—to getting over some major health issues—to learning to deal with many fears…I could go on and on but why bore anyone.

Slowly but surely some creative ideas have been stirring about-and I am slowly moving forward with them.

In the last 18 months—i have learned to notice how beautiful the day can be….how beautiful it is to hear my kids call me and say “I Love You”…..I have learned to become very comfortable with just me being at home….I have learned that I am getting older but it is a good thing. I guess I have used the last 18 months for self-reflection and it has helped me be okay with me a bit more…I needed that.

I may blog tomorrow or I may not----it just depends on what the day brings me---and truly I am ok with that.
I have missed so many people tho---that I do regret---but I needed this time for me—if I did not have it----I am sure I would be a mental case by now… that was the road i was heading down on.

I hope Life has treated you all well and that you are Blessed!!
I know I am!! "
We Will Talk Again Soon---PEACE!!!

I'm glad you are in a good place now and took the time for yourself.

I don't blog as often as I used to myself.

We all get busy and need a break.

I will keep you in my prayers.

ELLIE! I just read this post second.
Sigh. I am so glad to read you 'recharged'. NO sorry or apology necessary! I know how important it is to take care of oneself and therefor is NO apology necessary! Everybody who understands what you are talking about will UNDERSTAND and give you all the space you need!

Enjoy 'spreading-your-wings' again!!!! In a creative way again, I am very looking forward to see your ART again, smiles, Anke :)
