Dear Friends: I have always tried to make my blog a fun place to be, for me it has been my sanity and something I look forward to everyday no matter how much pain I am in or what curve balls real life is throwing at me. And I hope it is also a fun place to come to visit. But there are times that real life can be so hard that, not so good news, need to be told.
I am not sure if you have been following the news about the Texas wild fires and how people have had to evacuate their homes. I have been following one of our blogging buddies status on FB and just read some horrible news that has me feeling helpless, useless and wanting to do something but what?, being so far from her. I just read that Jackie from Housewife Blues and Chihuahua Stories, has lost everything. This is what she posted on FB: "It is all gone, house, RV, buildings all rubble and ash.". Please keep her in your prayers.
And on another note. Over the next few weeks, I will probably not be participating in daily memes, visiting blogs, answering emails. However, I will be posting Guest Author showcases and giveaways that I have already committed to. Monday, the day after I attended the beautiful wedding, my Mom fell and I spent the day/night in the ER. No fractures, however, due to results of other tests, the doctor told me to put Hospice in place. I will be spending as much time as I can with her and away from blogging. Shining Star will be on hiatus a bit longer, I apologize, but I hope you understand.
