Well, hello there

My cute boy. My world.
He turned 2 recently.
Do you need me as much as I need you?

I haven't written a single thing in a month, yet at least 20 of you still stop by each day to see if I've written.

So, I suspect you do need me. And that's good. I like feeling needed.

And it's mutual. 

I thank all of you who have written just to make sure I'm OK. 

I am. I just needed a break. From everything.

So many of you have told me how strong you think I am, but the truth is, I'm not. I'm weak, and sometimes getting through life is hard for me.

But I know it's hard for many of you, too, and that's why I want to let you know I'm still here.

I am going to start writing again, and I even have a new, actual website that I'll be revealing soon.

I'm still here.

Are you?


  1. I'm here. And frequently one of the 20 :)

    just read an article by t.d. jakes which stated "for when i am weak, then i am strong" 2corth.12;10

  3. I'm here 'cause you are here!!!!

  4. I am here, and don't plan on leaving!

  5. Yes and I'm clapping hysterically. You have a gift. Life is too short not to share it :) I'm a blog snob and I love yours !!

  6. You know I'm always here/there for you.

  7. I missed you!!! So glad you're back!!! (Dinner soon, right?)

  8. I'm here, Misty. Glad you wrote. Your munchkin is so cute. Especially with a football. Can I invite myself to that dinner with you and Nancy?

  9. I'm still here too Misty. :)

  10. You are my Monday ritual. Please know you have a loyal following and we anxiously await all of your posts. Glad to see you are back.......

  11. I'm still here, I don't check as often as I use to since I've been watching two babies in addition to my two... that's FOUR babies ranging in age of 14 weeks to my 3 year old... I'm EXHAUSTED! I too have been struggling since July... I gained weight on my vacation, and took 10 weeks to get it back off... then I gained more when the inlaws came to visit... and I've lost that in two weeks (YAY) But now I've got to step it up a notch & get working on MORE weight loss! I want to lose 25 lbs before the end of the year!!!!! Care to join me Misty?

  12. There is strength in facing the tough things, admitting disappointment, having a sense of humor and starting down the doubts that make us human. You got this.
