Thank You For the Support
In response to the many messages I've received regarding my relative blog silence for the past many months I want to take this opportunity to advise my blog friends about what has been going on. I don't want to bore you with too many details, but I do want to share that I have been experiencing health issues since February.
I have developed an autoimmune disease (Hashimoto's Thyroiditis) and am undergoing tests again as it appears that I have more going on; perhaps an associated arthritis. I am under the care of several specialists and we are sorting it all out.
I LOVE blogging and plan to type when I can, but some days it's tough to use my fingers for keyboarding, and sitting is very painful. My "smartphone" converts spoken word to text which is why I've been more chatty on social networking sites lately. Rest assured, I am not going away and have not tired of our wonderfully supportive blog community. I am in the process of isolating my current problem so we can begin treating it too and I can enjoy keyboarding again real soon.
In the meantime, I plan to alternate sharing Deb, Dolly, and Debbie's weekly Farmgirl Friday Blog Hop posts so I can keep up. I hope to share a few of my favorite holiday images too. I am probably not going to be able to headline what would be our 3rd Annual Handmade Gifts From the Heart blog hop or the annual Virtual Ornament Exchange, but maybe someone among us will do that and keep it going. Hint, hint. I'd love that.
Thanks so much for all the kind notes, they've blessed me on many a tough day. I really appreciate it.
