Where did all the time go?  One minute I was writing a blog, and then, poof! it disappeared!  I feel guilty for leaving anyone who follows my blog perhaps wondering where I may have gone.

So much has happened in the past six months in my life, and my blog fell away under the craziness.  

I decided to go back to college this past September so that perhaps I could graduate with a degree at the same time as my daughter.  I qualified for financial aid so I took two courses (online) and managed to receive an A for both, but boy, did it take a lot of my time.  Especially when I am also trying to run my vintage shop simultaneously!

Then came Christmas...a very small Christmas due to our financial difficulties.  So much thanks to our oldest son who bought a Wii U for his brothers and sisters for Christmas.  Everything else came from Savers or the Salvation Army!

Then I had to decide if I was willing to continue with school, seeing how much time it took last semester.  And crazily, I decided to take two more classes which started in January.

And for the biggest change of all....

Our first grandchild was born January 25.  A beautiful girl named Madeline Grace who has so blessed our family.

So you can see how I let my blog slip.  

And now, I am contemplating whether God is calling me to continue this blog, or whether he has other plans in mind.  I have missed writing and communicating with the people who read my blog and I am leaning toward trying to maintain it.

For now, I shall pray about it, and I would ask if you could spare a prayer for me and for my family and our finances, and especially for newborn Madeline.

May God bless you and yours!

  1. Congratulations on the new little one!!

    Life does get busy and the important things to do rise to the top. Blogging is not on my list of priorities. I blog when I want to, even if days and days go by. Checking in once every 6 months is perfectly fine. =)

    Good for you for going back to school. You are very brave to do so.
