A Small Sabbatical

 
 


I am starting on my blogging break a little sooner than I'd first planned, but I'll be coming back at some point to comment again on your posts I enjoy so much. I do apologize for not commenting the last few days. I got behind when I was in California. Take care, my friends!

  1. Good morning, Shelly! Your beautiful writing will be missed but I can sure understand you taking a much needed break.

  2. I want to echo what my friend Cindy wrote above. You will be missed and I hope you'll be back. You offered us many inspiring and well written stories. You always made me feel welcome and replied to my comments in such a way that it produced a win-win with both of us feeling good about ourselves. Not all bloggers are willing to do that. Best wishes, dear Shelly, and please remember that the doors of the Shady Dell will always be wide open to you!
