Taking a Break

You may have noticed a significant absence from my postings lately, not that consistent blogging has ever been a strength.

My amazing mother is nearing the end of a long struggle with leukemia, so my focus right now is on enjoying the time we have together and spending time with my family, especially during the holiday season.

Creating for me is usually a way to manage the stresses of everyday life, but right now I seem to be frozen, even for that. I am acutely aware of the changing of the season as the plants in the garden start to die back after a spectacular summer. My faith in Mother Nature assures me that there will be life again in the spring. But, right now, like my garden, I need to retreat and rest. And, kitty tickles. I need those too đŸ˜ș.

  1. Thinking of you, Lisa, and your family.

  2. Sending my thoughts, love and hugs to you all.

  3. Lisa - you are in my thoughts. I know what a difficult time this must be for you. I admire your spirit and resolve to spend time with your mom and let this life process be what it must be. Big hugs your way. Love the smiles you and your mom have. xo kim

    1. Thanks Kim! I know you recently went through a similar situation. I know it is part of the cycle of life, but it is hard to let go. Stay warm!
