After my renewed spirit for blogging and all the ideas that I received at ASHA came a devastating blow. A good friend and neighbor became very ill. I put blogging aside as I tried to help out in any way possible. I often had her girls at my home to help give her a break and let her body rest. She lost her battle with cancer and was laid to eternal rest in late December.
It has been hard for me to get my head wrapped around the brevity of life. I have spent a lot of time hugging on my little ones and really assessing what is important in life. I wasn't sure if I would come back to blogging, but alas, here I am. I have decided that helping others and putting ideas out on the world wide web is not only beneficial to others (even if it helps one person), but also is something that I enjoy and THAT is important.
Be looking for lots of ideas and blogs to come. I'm sorry for my time away, but I do hope you'll come back to the blog weekly!
