M.I.A.

[About the photo:  

The best photo I could come up with to illustrate “missing” on short notice. My soul feels like this puzzle at the moment — missing pieces, unfinished, broken…

On a more positive note, jme & her husband bought this 3,000 piece puzzle for us on one of their visits. The gorgeous subject is Seychelles, a place Julie, jme & I all hoped to visit (but never did).  We worked on this masterpiece together for a solid week, and then continued to work after jme & bryan returned home. It was a lovely puzzle, but we never quite finished it.

On the boys’ birthday party day that year, I had to make an executive decision: put the puzzle back in its box unfinished and reclaim the kitchen table for the party OR cancel their birthday party last minute!  It was a tough decision!  I took this photo just before we packed the puzzle up that day.]

Hello Dear Readers,

I know I’ve missed an entire week (or so?) of posting.  

And I set off alarm bells when I didn’t even participate in the Weekly Photo Challenge for last week, which is not like me at all.  Some of you noticed my absence and have emailed to ask if I am okay.   So I am writing to tell you that the past week and a half has been extremely difficult, but that I am alright.  

I will be posting in the next few days to explain.  And you will likely understand my silence after you’ve read the post.  But in the meantime, know that I haven’t forgotten about you.  In fact, I think of you every day and I am grateful for your presence in my life.

My warmest thoughts are with you all xxx

  2. Thanks for letting us know you’re ok. I kept on snooping around your pad looking for you. I would have looked further, but there’s no door into the real world… Now wouldn’t that be cool? Imagining bloggers being able to meet each other…. Big Cornish hugs to you xoxo
