Hiatus

I am going to have to bail on the blog for a while :) 
I hope to finish the Caldecott series someday but I plan to take an extended hiatus.

I will also not be answering emails for month or so. Right now I just cannot keep up and I have family obligations.

Thank-you all so much for reading what I write and encouraging me and offering me the impetus to read and grow.

Hopefully, I will come back to blogging refreshed someday. I say someday because it may be next week or next month or next year.

Now I am off to meet two of my grandsons for the first time.

  2. Oh I hope it's not a year! You will be so very missed while you're gone.

    Have a wonderful first meeting with your grandsons.

    I'm so glad you will be at Circe.

  4. If I'm honest with myself, I know I'd do the same if I were in your position.

    But NOOOOOOOOO!! I've only just found you.

    I guess I'll have to find solace in the archives. I do love how your posts make me think about things that matter; I will miss your regular posts and keep checking for your return.

    God's blessings be upon you and yours.

  5. Oh Cindy! I truly understand but you will be very, very missed! I'm quite behind in reading your posts so that will bring me comfort for awhile. :(
    Can't wait until you come back!!
    Enjoy your sweet grandbabies!

  7. Oh darn!! (I say selfishly. BIG yay for you!) And I only just got my thoughts together for chapter 1 here: https://stumblingtongue.wordpress.com/2014/04/06/beauty-in-the-word-ch-1/

    Have a wonderful time smooching on those sweet grandbabies!

  8. Hurry back----as soon as your life allows. You'll be dearly missed. Enjoy the Pacific NW if that's where you're heading. I'll be waving from above the 49th parallel on the westcoast of Canada.

  18. Thank you for your kind and gracious words of encouragement for Cindy. I have been extremely blessed with a genuinely, kind and calm wife that has dedicated herself to serving others. Concerning this hiatus, truly your loss is my gain. Enjoy the archives, as I will be blessed getting to enjoy Cindy. Sincerely yours, Tim

  20. Hmmm... that should have been "give you His peace." But I kinda like "give you His grace!" as well, so I'm gonna leave that one and pray that He gives you His peace as well as His grace!

    Blessings Cindy, You will be missed until someday...
