Forgive me, one and all. It's necessary for me to take a break.

Overwhelmed by circumstances in my life.
I'll read, but won't post.
I hate what's going on with me. My faith is being tested big-time it seems. Pains me to realize.

Peace, safe journey, good health and my heart's love to all my sisters and brothers here.

“There comes a time in your life, when you walk away from all the drama and people who create it. You surround yourself with people who make you laugh. Forget the bad and focus on the good. Love the people who treat you right, pray for the ones who do not. Life is too short to be anything but happy. Falling down is a part of life, getting back up is living.”
― José N. Harris

Take some time.

Catch your breath.

Get some rest.

Just know we’re still here for whenever you need somebody to talk to, and certainly for when you decide you can come back and join us again.

Sending you the best strength vibes I’ve got!

I lured for 2-3 months recently when I had some system issues and then was just too depressed to get back on for awhile. One day there was a thread that I really wanted to respond to, that's how I knew i was ready to engage again. Hope you get that feeling too.
