My Mind, Right Now

I struggled over whether I should write something or not, but this blog has been such a part of my life for so long, and all of you have been such a huge source of happiness for me, that I find it hard not to say at least something about what is going on and why my heart just isn’t in it at the moment.

Without going into detail, my life came crashing down around me last week and it’s left me feeling lost, confused and there’s no other word for it, sad. If I really focus, I know things will be okay but with all of the distractions around me, I find myself not wanting to think about the stuff I have to do. It would be easy to let everything go and just crawl back into bed, but the other half me thinks that will just make it worse.

I am not going anywhere. I thought about taking a blogging break but then at the same time, I feel as if I need to keep my friends around me and whether you know it or not, you are friends to me. I interact with so many of you daily that the thought of not hearing from you would make me even sadder. So, no…I won’t be taking a break but the posting may be erratic and I may not be able to interact as much as I normally do. I’ve never kept to a posting schedule before but a week could slip by without me posting one darn thing and then one day you might get three posts back to back. It could happen.

Lastly, if you are the praying type, my family could use some prayers right now. Good thoughts? I’ll take those too. In the mean time, I am going to keep reading and hope that in a few month’s time, we will be in a better place.

  7. Ti, I’ll be sending prayers your way – I feel that through our blogs, I do know you…and am hoping that whatever struggles you and your family are going through are resolved quickly.

  8. Ti, I’m so sorry for whatever it is you’re dealing with right now. My thoughts and prayers are with you and your family. I noticed you weren’t posting as much as usual but I hoped it was the children’s busy schedule and life that was distracting you. I’m sorry to learn it’s not that. Boy did I breathe a sigh of relief when you said you weren’t taking a blogging break. It’s selfish of me but so many bloggers whose blogs I enjoy and whom I think of as friends have taken breaks from blogging and not yet returned. With Sandy leaving the blogging community in November I couldn’t cope with losing you. Take care of your family and yourself first, of course…but come here when you need your dose of happiness …it will be supplied :o)
    Hang in there, Ti.

  9. So sorry to hear, Ti, I will definitely be thinking of you. I’m glad to hear you’ll still be around in some way – I think it’s nice to have a place to share your thoughts, no matter what form they might take or how regular they may be.

  10. Oh, Ti…this makes my heart sad and I hurt for you…it doesn’t even matter what it is…you are so good and such a supportive person…prayers of course and I will be thinking of you…you are always there for me…I wish I could do more…take care…

  12. You also have my prayers and good thoughts. Unfortunately, the last few months, we’ve been dealing with a family situation ourselves so can relate…somewhat. Here’s hoping things turn out better for you and all involved soon.

  13. Ti, so sorry to hear that things are not going well (perhaps a huge understatement), but I’m glad we’ll still be connected from time to time. You’re in my thoughts and prayers.

  14. Oh sister, I am SO the praying type! Consider yourself drenched in prayer!!!! As women and as Mothers we are connected and when a fellow book loving mom/lady says she needs help Im there! 🙂 I love your blog and I love your words, I would be really bummed out if you stopped blogging, But I get it. Life is HUGE sometimes- Ill be here waiting, when you are ready to type more awesomeness 🙂 (Im the one that lost your blog when her husband”fixed her computer”and cleared off her favorites!)

  15. Ti,

    Whatever you’re going through right now, just hang it there and press on. You’re much thought of and I hope your blogging activity can be a release and a source of support and friendship. All the best to you and yours. Take care!

  16. Oh, no. Many good thoughts coming your way. Whatever you need to do, do it. I hope you get through whatever’s going on as quickly and painlessly as possible.

  17. I’m so sorry to hear that you’re having such a tough time. Know that you and your family are in my thoughts and prayers. You’re so right that this blogging community of ours is a wonderful source of comfort; when my family has gone through tough times, I always knew I could turn to my friends on the internet for words of encouragement. Do what you need to do and know that we are here for you when you need us.

  18. Oh Ti! I’m sorry I’m just now reading this, even though you’ve alluded to these feelings before. Sending hugs and prayers and thoughts and love your way. Take care of you and your family. xo

  20. Oh Ti! I’m so so sorry to hear you’re going through such a difficult time.. my thoughts are with you and I’m keeping you close in my heart. I hope you find some comfort (or even a little distraction) in keeping up with your blogging and online friends a bit now and then. I know it has helped me in the past when life threw me a few curve balls. xo
