Taking A Needed Break

Some of you know that I lost my younger brother recently
due to a horrible disease.
I thought I was strong enough and old enough to forge ahead,
but am finding I cannot.
I cannot seem to concentrate, cannot control
the shakiness in my hands to even color decently.

I have been posting cards from my 
stash since his funeral but I feel
you and this blog deserve better than that.

I want to let you know that I will be 
taking some time off from stamping to
gather my sanity and my thoughts
and hopefully mend the damage
to my stamina, nerves and coordination.

Perhaps this has hit me harder being it was so close to 
Christmas, I don't know.
I do know that I need to take a break.
Please understand.
I will be back at creating soon
if things work out.
Wishing all of you a very
Happy Holiday season!

Connie, it will take time to adjust. I too lost a brother and find comfort in memories of our time together. I still feel his loss after more than 10 years have passed. I do understand what you are going through. Find comfort in his love and memories.

Connie, I'm so sorry for your loss. Please do not be so hard on yourself. You need to give yourself time and permission to adjust. Thinking of you.
