Hello, there. It's been a long time!

Last week I was in Books a Mill on looking at magazines, when I ran across a magazine called "Artful Blogging". Alicia had told us about it on her blog. It is a beautiful magazine featuring several blogs that I love to visit. Alicia's blog is one of them.

In the magazine it also talks about blog etiquette. Well, after reading the article I haven't used my manners when it comes to my blog. It said that if you are going to be away from your blog that you should let everyone know. Well, I haven't done that. I really haven't thought about my blog much since June 22.

See, I have had a huge family crisis that is of the nightmarish kind. There wasn't an illness. No one died. My husband and I are still together. None of the kids did anything bad. What we have been through has been horrible. Maybe one day I can talk about it all.

I will have to tell you this, though. Although we have been through an absolutely horrifying experience, my faith in God, my positive attitude, and the love my family has for each other has not wavered.

Through all things bad something good comes from it. I have seen the good already, and I can see the end. We will be forever changed, and I hope not in a bad way. Please keep my grandchildren, their parents, and us in your prayers.

Now, with that said, I hope you understand and accept my apologies for not letting you know I wasn't going to be posting for a while. Thank you.


  1. I didn't even know there was such a thing as blog etiquette. I'm probably guilty of breaking a few rules too. :o)
    I hope that what ever is going on in your life, that it resolves itself soon and I will keep you and your family in my thoughts. The internet and blogland will all still be here when you are ready to come back.


  2. Thanks, Jane. Your thoughts for my family are very much appreciated. Hugs!!

  3. I am so sorry to hear that your family has suffered. It truly is incredible though, that through tragedy comes strength and our faith in God only adds to that. I will keep your whole family in my prayers. I've missed you.


  4. Hi Amanda ! I'm sorry to hear you and your family had such a horrible experience, and I'm glad everybody is OK. Also, thank you for your good wishes and thoughts for me and my mother when she was in the hospital. Hang in there kiddo!
