Hey, Norine. I am so sorry to hear you have been going through some tough times and recent surgery. I am glad to hear your vision is better, and I pray you will continue to have improvements with your eye and wish you a fast recovery. My prayers are with you.
I am very sorry that I have been away for so long. At the end of the summer in 2013, I had a major family crisis involving my son and everything else was put on hold until I knew he was okay or at least doing better. We are still having some hard times, but it is better. He is not sick and it is just too difficult to go into and I hope you understand. Last fall, the funding for my job ended after three years, so I had to find a new one. I have to drive about 100 miles daily and have been working some very long hours. Right after I started my new job, my husband had emergency heart surgery, which was a total shock. He, too, is doing better.
It has been a difficult two years for me and my family. I know how frustrating it is to have someone here one day and gone the next, back and forth. So, I felt I owed all of you some sort of explanation. I hope you will understand and know how much I appreciate every one of you, and I pray that I can spend more time on here in the upcoming months. I won’t make promises I can’t keep, but please know how much I enjoy it here and I have missed being here and chatting with all of you and seeing the beautiful graphics you make. Thank you so very much for the comments, beautiful graphics you have made for me, and for just being my friend. I truly mean that from the bottom of my heart.
