Deep breath, close eyes, pause


The travel through this care giving topic was more intense than I thought.

I shed a few tears of my own in the sharing.

Some emotions run very deep.

I have deeply enjoyed taking this care giver journey
with you over the last month.

But I am ready to take a break.
I am ready to recharge, regroup, and return
in about 2 weeks.

And while I am gone I will catch up with my blog reading.
You will see me on your blogs getting caught up.

Taking a few deep breaths.

Time to take a break.

I'll be back ...


You come back too ... :-)

  1. I just found you and you're going! (LOL!)
    Over for a visit from the wonderful Delores at The Feathered Nest. Enjoy your break!

  2. I'm sure it was a deeply emotional ride for you to share your innermost thoughts and fears with us. You probably need a rest. I have a suspition though that you will find something interesting and you won't be able to stop yourself blogging about it. It does become a "hard to break" habit. Enjoy your rest. We'll be waiting.

  3. I hope you get the rest you need. I too, have catching up to do with reading others blogs. You have written much I want to get caught up with.
    I am working on a cross stitch quilt for my soon to be here grandson. Will post pics after it is done as it is a surprise. We have had 12 women working on it :)
    Thanks for keeping up with my blog and your words of encouragement.
    Hope you find rest and rejuvenation.

  4. A break is a good thing - enjoy!

  5. enjoy your break. hope you come back well-rested. :)

  6. Hi friend :) I've appreciated your caregiver posts! While I'm not quite at that level of caregiving with my may very well be a reality someday!

    I've tagged you in a post...see this post

    I never know how people feel about things like this, so don't feel like you have to play...but if you do be sure to leave me a comment so I can check out your post!


  7. Dear caregiver. I have not been well as you know. But had to drop by and see how you are doing. I do hope you come back and share. You do other great things also I am sure. Maybe you can sneak some other ideas in. I am have trouble getting back in the swing. Blessings

  8. I hope you enjoy your 2 week break and come back refreshed. :-)


  9. I know you're taking a blogging break for a little bit, but when you get back I have an award for you! You can see it here:

    Hope you have a nice break!


  10. I hope you have a refreshing time away from the blogs. Sometimes we all need a little break.

  11. I'm trying to get caught up with blog reading too. I'll be back to posting on Monday. I've enjoyed my break but missed blogging too.
    Enjoy your break. I'll see you at knitting next week.

  12. When you return from your break I have an award/challenge for you on my blog "youngish" (you can get there through the button on my sidebar) if you are feeling up to it.
    Hope you are enjoying your break.


Yes, you do want to comment! I can see it in your face:-)
