A Little Personal Note

I've struggled with posting this personal note,
but decided I wanted to let you know

Just in case you've been wondering...

Where I am
What I'm Doing
and Why I haven't been visiting as much lately...

I've been busy with our summer
and a close family member of ours has been ill
this summer.

A person that we LOVE so very much

...just in case you were wondering...


Wishing you and yours
a very nice Labor Day
of enjoying precious time together.

(Don't forget to tell your family
how much YOU love THEM!)


Happiness to you~

Know that you are missed, but are also in my prayers.
I never miss an opportunity (even if I have to make it) to tell those close to me how much I love them. It's good to be reminded even when you know it.

You are loved,

Jacque said...

Tracie, I am sorry to hear about your loved one. With an 87 yr old mother and a disabled husband, I truly share your pain! I know how difficult life seems to be at times and am amazed at how much strength one can find when the time comes to have it! Each visit to dr offices and hospitals makes me appreciate life so much more.

My prayers are with you. You have such a sweet kind and loving spirit! Myself and all the rest of your blog family is here for moral support.

Wishing you a great Labor Day Weekend!

Tracie,
I have been thinking of you always. Though you had mentioned things had gotten better I'd noticed you hadn't posted as much. Hoping it was just from being busy. Know that we are all pulling for your family member and know it is perfectly ok to tell us when you are hurting. Sometimes just a kind word can make all the difference.
All my best!
Carole

Alison Gibbs said...

Hi Tracie I think we are all a bit guilty of taking the ones we love for granted. We assume they know we love them but we must tell them as that is the only way they really know

Tracey said...

Hi Tracie! You are like the 6th Tracie (of different spellings) that I've met in my short time blogging. It's so funny to me, because I've only met a few Tracey's my whole life :) Thank you for coming by my blog and leaving a sweet comment. I'm thrilled to find your blog!! I'm sorry for your loved one being ill. I know how tough that is. We lost my father-in-law a few weeks ago after a year long battle with cancer and it has been devastating for us. I'll say a prayer for you and your loved one tonight...

:) T

Good Morning Tracie, I am so sorry to read that someone you love very much is ill, that just breaks my heart. I do hope everything turns out ok, and remember God works in mysterious ways, sometimes we don't understand why something is happening, but it all makes sense in the end. Take care~ Tara

*Ulrike* said...

Oh Tracie, I do so hope that it turns out well. We went through something with my daughter two weeks ago with her being in ICU and the hospital. Friends and blogger friends sent their thoughts and prayers to us. I will now do the same for you, and as someone told me too, don't forget to take care of yourself.

Sara's Sweet Surprise said...

Hello Miss Tracie! I'm finally back from my summer blogcation.
you're post truly touched me....
I've my share of health issues that prevent me from doing a multitude of activities...that I miss.
I'm truly blessed with a very loving husband and children who've been my soft place to fall... through the worst of times with my ups and downs.
I absolutely agree...time is fleeting and it is so important to let those you love know how precious they are. I never take for granted those who've come into my life and make it so wonderful by their mere presence.
I know you and your dear friend will find many moments of joy in each other.

Please stop by when you can...I look forward to the return of your company.
Sweet wishes,
Sara
