Going on Hiatus

Sometimes, you have to step back and say, "I have to focus on what's important." I enjoy blogging. However, the reality of Hurricane Sandy has made me realize that I have to focus on getting my life back on track. We were fortunate not to lose our home. However, six long days in the dark and cold were sobering. It also helped me discover who my true friends were. Right now, I'm not very motivated to blog. I wish everyone at CMBA continued success with their blogs.

God Bless all who suffered during Hurricane sandy. I just pray that the new storm will not further damage lives that have already been devastated!

    1. Thanks honey. But honestly, there are so many things that have occurred in the past few months that make this dim by comparison. When I feel ready, I give it another try.

  2. Tracy, I feel so bad that I didn't comment on your convention post -- I've always liked your blog. Life has not been kind this year, and I've been so up and down with blogging and regular participation. I hope you don't think it's because I don't care -- I do. I understand what you feel you need to do now because I've been there myself. I'm just now coming out of it. As for those who never seem to appreciate you, it's been their loss.

    1. Becky, you don't have to comment on every post. I simply wanted anyone who does stop by to realize that I won't blogging for awhile. This situation just made me realize where I need to place my energy right now, and unfortunately it is not on blogging. Thanks for supporting and encouraging my efforts.

    1. Thanks Rick. I was fortunate compared to the poor Staten Island and Jersey Shore residents to name a few.

  5. I will miss reading your blog updates, but I hope things turn around for you and your family/neighbours. The photos you posted of the storm's aftermath are sickening - we're all so vulnerable to the forces of nature, aren't we? Be well and take care. :) Hopefully we'll see you soon.

  6. Gilby, Apologies for my late arrival - I've been on hiatus and am a bit behind. I hope your life is much closer to being back to normal than when you first posted this. My good thoughts and prayers go out to you and everyone who was in the path of Hurricane Sandy.

  7. Gilby, I've been meaning to catch up with you for a while now, and I'm truly sorry I haven't had a chance to do so until now. Although our family (including our kin on Long Island) and neighborhood was luckier than most in the wake of Hurricane Sandy, we can certainly sympathize and empathize. We're keeping you and yours in our thoughts and prayers during this difficult time. If we can help, even if it's just a sympathetic ear, we're here. We hope things will be better ASAP, and that 2013 will see better days for you and David and all you care about!
