My New Happy: Why I've Been Gone

Why I've Been Gone


I've been missing from my blog because of some very sad news.  A few weeks ago, my dad passed away unexpectedly.  The first week we were all in shock, and now I'm just deeply sad.

Taking care of my mom and dealing with details has kept me busy.  I plan to get back to regular blogging next week, because it will be a good distraction, and it makes me happy.

During this week of Thanksgiving, I wanted to let you know how thankful I am for all of you, and for the supportive community of friends I've found in the blogging world.  I hope that everyone has a blessed week.
