Blog break

It has been a long semester. Two deaths in the family this year (albeit people far away from me) and one diagnosis of re-curring cancer have nevertheless taken their toll. My course this semester just about did me in. (In fact, it still may...) My knee is better, but my spirit feels broken.

I need a break from blogging, but I didn't want to just disappear, so I thought I'd put up a post letting you know that you may not see me around for a while.

In case I haven't mentioned it lately, I'm grateful for the new "blogger buddies" this medium has allowed me to connect with. Wonderful, inspirational people you are!

For my friends and family who check in (and never leave comments - you lurkers! ;-), I'll try to call over the holidays.

Happy holidays to you and yours. Peace and joy for 2007.

- Sarah

Sarah,
I'll miss your posts and will look forward to the day when you pick up your blog again. Have a restful and relaxing winter break. Give yourself all the treats and luxuries you can! Rejuvenate and be well.

Happy are we, the "lurkers" :-) I've put my LJ postings on pause, too (at least until January). It's good to take a "blog break" and have a rest for a while. Looking forward to your return!

Hi Sarah,

Good bye for now, and good luck with the future with what ever that will bring.

And Merry Christmas and Happy New year too.

We all need a break once in awhile particularly when we experience loss. Take care. Merry Christmas. I'm looking forward to your upcoming posts so don't be away too long. . .

Sometimes it gets to be another chore that you don't need. Good luck.

We will be here on your return. That spirit is an essential part ...can't let that break. I have a big "pillow" if you need a place to fall softly :0)
Thanks for your own inspirational self!

We all need break here and there. Take it as you need it for as long as it feels right. Hope to see you back at some point, but in either case - thanks for letting us get to know you.
